modded drivers from his 7960 driver package from the link (that's where I got the genkga3.exe file). first try 7960, if that one doesn't make x-fimb5 work, then try the 7747 version - that one does work on my system for sure.
You need to remove both existing realtek audio drivers & x-fimb5 software before installing his modded drivers & x-fi mb5.
Also, right after installing the Sound Blaster X-FI MB5 software, do not restart the computer right away
. When given the choices to restart right now or restart later after installing x-fi mb5, choose to restart later
and immediately run all the genkga files (genkga4.exe, genkga3.exe, dat.exe & last but not least the run.bat files) from moonshinenite's "activador" folder. then restart the computer and load x-fi mb5.
still I want to know the hardware device IDs for your Realtek HD Audio devices:
I've gotten X-FI MB5 to work with my old Intel motherboard with ALC861 audio using this ID:
You need to install a separate SRS control panel app from DJ Urko's modded realtek audio driver package.
Here's the ASUS Realtek audio manager app on my friend's ASUS M5A78L-M LE/USB3 motherboard:

his board uses Realtek ALC887 audio with the following hardware ID:
Always installed thru the HDXRT4.INF file because that specific ID is mentioned on there
