The strange thing about this board is that according to Clover the HD audio controller is a 3a3e (alc1200/888) according to windows device manager the audio controller is an 888--(whilst using the 886 codec) -according to Linux codec dump -- also an 886. I have gotten as far as seeing devices in system preferences that even change between headphones and speaker if I insert the jack -- but still no sound. No sound assertion errors but no sound nonetheless -- VoodooHDA worked but that is such a band-aid solution. (Note: this is all in 10.6.8)

Even the newest Clover ALC patches do not work with this motherboard (10.10 +)--- probably speaking to no one in a dead thread but maybe there is hope out there........
Does the codec dump and Windows Device Manager show 10ec0886 or 10ec0888?

Codec form linux say 10ec0888 but using the 886 Codec -- Windows says 10ec0888 but the realtek manager indicates it is using the 886 codec
-- I can upload files. I have a patched AppleHDA i did myself that has no sound assertion errors and there are devices present -- but no sound. Only VoodooHDA works -- I am analyzing it's codec dump to see why/how it works.

Same issue with my MSI motherboard and ALC888S in El Capitan. I used AppleHDA Patcher, devices show but no sound at all.

Have you made a code graph of your soundcard? I have this feeling that the routing in these particular iterations of the chipset are not just -pincomplex-mixer-output -- I believe NID11 which is also a mixer has something to do with it. No one really wants to help but maybe we can figure this out ---
