Many motherboard makers don't have great support for their audio chips, including EVGA, as they do not make it themselves. You're off to some taiwanese website to try out several versions of the driver to make it work with Windows 10. So here is more of the same, but with a discrete card, which may fix your issue or make it worse.

The biggest issue with audio today is sync issues only noticeable when watching video, given all the different ways to watch, using a browser, an app, or codec. You'll have various levels of audio being synced up perfectly with the video.

Dollar per dollar I think the AE-5 is a much better value anyway.

Yeap, occasionally Realtek's drivers go all wonky with Windows 10 and it is just easier to spend the money on a sound card and not deal with it anymore. That's the main use case.
