Windows 7: ASUS Rampage II Extreme sound

ASUS Rampage II Extreme sound

My roommate received an ASUS Rampage II Extreme motherboard along with a Core i7 from NCIX today. All went well except he has no sound. I noticed the board was supposed to come with a SupremeFX sound card, but it didn't. Does this board have any sort of onboard audio? Everything I've checked doesn't give me a straight answer. If this is in the wrong section, mods can you please move it? Thanks.

That SupremeFX "sound card" is the onboard sound. It isn't a true sound card and nothing more than a riser card containing the onboard sound.

I would start with contacting where the board came from and see if they still have the card. failing that you can order one from Asus for $45.00,

Supreme FX X-Fi

Personally if you can't get it from where the board came from I would go with an actual sound card.

According to the reviews I read the board was supposed to come with a sound card for the pcie x1 slot. But from the reviews, you would be better off buying your own.

LOL. I am sorry to hear that. Maybe the vendor kept it, but the Supreme FX, does come with the Rampage II Extreme. I know cos mine came with one. And to be honest it doesn't sound that bad. Although, I may buy a real sound sound card in the future, probably ASUS Xonar.
