Azalia gives me same issue. , connected and disconnected constantly . I read the customer review at new egg and one of them mentions the same problem. He said he changed settings in gigabytes sound manager and it corrected the problem . I still cant get it to work though. In the HD audio manager my rear speakers say there my front panel and ive got both my headphones and speakers working , but at the same time. Now when i plug both mic and headphones in the HD audio manager thinks im using the center/subwoofer back panel jack. So weird.
