good motherboard, poor sound support in windows vista /7

Summary: excellent build quality, solid caps, good bios options, overclocks like a champ, BUT the sound drivers are HORRENDOUS whenever I try to install the drivers the sound will cut off and start muting or switching channels on games, the default windows drivers are somewhat better (no cutting off) but...
Summary: I have a five-way grafted fruit tree in my backyard. Two branches have peaches, one has nectarines, one has plums and the last has apricots. I call it the Frankentree. This motherboard is like that tree. It works, but it's really strange. Some features, like AM3 and DDR3 support, are modern.
Summary: I got this board because I still had 4 gigs of good Corsair DDR2 but I wanted to move up from some of the older stuff I had. The price was good when I got it and it could handle all the old peripherals I had from my old PC.
Summary: Packaging was fine, the motherboard has been working for the last couple months without a hitch (well, the OC software doesn't work, but of the 5 motherboards I've owned it hasn't so not a big deal) Once again I'm impressed with what I got for the price
