I always use to download via realtek's website myself and it's always been SLOW.. But since I started using Internet Download Manager it became real FAST.

Why can't you just upload the audio drivers to Nsane? It would mean a lot to see new updates on the drivers.

I use ATI HDMI drivers and the regular one for Win8.1 :). I haven't seen a single page yet that you can download ati hdmi drivers, only the regular ones :/.. strange.
