I have this new build windows 10 pc with really annoying mic input problem. My motherboard is ASUS ROG STRIX z590-e gaming wifi, after I built up my pc I found my headset mic input was really really low, none can hear me, I have to yell to make the bar move in mic test and there was no Microphone boost option in taskbar Sound -> Recording -> Properties -> Levels. The driver in device manager shows "Realtek USB 2.0" or something.

After struggle I manage to found the seemly latest driver in motherboard's website, Realtek_Audio_Driver_V6.3.9600.2276_WIN10_64-bit (published on 2021/01/27). The driver in device manager shows "Realtek USB Audio" It has the microphone boost option which allowed me to boost my input about 20 to 30db, but it came with new issue: I have horrible echo in steam mic test (mic input capture my headset output) and Realtek audio manager was never installed(not in control panel or program file) -- I cannot use audio manager to possibly fix the echo issue.

I followed some india guy's video in youtube and it leads me to Staiton Drivers website to download seemly latest driver "Realtek High Definition Audio (HDA) Version R2.8x (9132.1) WHQL". After erasing my audio driver I install that driver... and that usb 2.0 is back without microphone boost again. Of course, the promised "Realtek HD audio manager" is still missing.

Tried set up mic, didn't work

So now I'm stuck, I installed the asus version back and don't know what to do. Do I have to try updating BIOS(current 0232), or figure it out "Realtek High Definition Audio (HDA) Version R2.8x (9132.1) WHQL" driver and "UAD/HDA"?

My headset is "BENGOO V-4 Gaming Headset for Xbox One, PS4, PC,..."(bought from Amazon)
