Can't install any proper audio interface for B450 mobo?

I have this on the B450 Gaming plus max motherboard: Realtek® ALC892 Codec. I am sure that's pretty much the same across the b450 boards.

 

I can't seem to install any meaningful realtek driver for this. I tried from realtek site and the mobo driver support. All of the drivers get installed, some does literally nothing, no extra options, no shortcuts, no change in audio or recording quality. Some have those weird toolbar interface that doesn't really work. But none of them has the actual realtek .exe file to open and check the options properly.

 

Anyone has a good driver for Realtek® ALC892?

Clean all the Realtek drivers (uninstall + remove using Display Driver uninstaller DDU), install the latest UAD drivers from your motherboards webpage (usually 30 to 60 MB), install the Realtek Control App from Microsoft Store.

Is there an option in DDU to remove an audio driver? I uninstalled & cleaned the registry with ccleaner.

 

Here's the page: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/B450-GAMING-PLUS-MAX#down-driver&Win10 64

 

It's just senseless that one is 300mb while the other is 40, and neither seem to do anything.

Yeah, DDU can clean the Realtek drivers.

 

The 300MB download is the old driver type driver, it installs the regular WHQL driver, and you probably need to fiddle to get the Realtek Control Panel working.

 

The 40MB driver is the one you want, the new driver type/model (named DCH drivers). But it doesn't come with a control panel, you need to get that from the Microsoft Store.

 

And it's not true that both do not do anything. They do and you can get the proof in Device Manager.
