    Hello,
    I'm trying to play with the audio settings in the ACC but nothing change.
    Do you hear any change when playing with the equalizer or audio effects? Am i deaf? :D

    For info, i just reinstalled the audio driver and Realtek console but with no luck.

    For those of you who have a Western Digital SSD, Western Digital SSD Dashboard v3.0.2.37 released . Can see drives even in RAID mode and can update firmware and enhance performance:

    It's sad that Samsung Magician even in this day and age where many laptops are sold in a RAID setup still cannot even detect the SSD if it's in RAID.

    That was already enabled for me by default but it seems the Realtek Audio Console kinda takes over the AWCC enhancements to uninstalling it helps make the effects from AWCC work

    Replace them with viton orings with the same diameter and section, viton is stable at temps in the -26°C to +205°/230°C (-15°F to +400°/440°F) range, wont break again due to heat, or vibration in fact, and for that size they will cost something like 1$ each, just dont buy from eBay because you will get buna-N(rated to 85ºC if that) sold as viton.

    Maybe it's a different issue with this software: audio realtek console.
    Personally i never installed this software on my system but i have experience the same issue many times (no audio effects in awcc) for many different alienware system. (R3,R4, M15R2,51m). I am very confident that this sofware, might just disable audio sound enhancement in windows wich should be the source of the problem. Next time it happens it would be interesting to just verify if this is sill activated.

    hi guys, on this z490 chipset is there a real advantage to create a raid 0 of m2?
    is there a tight limit on the z490 chipset?
    would it be useful to use the new M2 pciexpress 4-0 or not useful? I was thinking of the new m2 rocket sabrents ..
    (for area 51m r2)
