Not sure if they are related.

I got a new mobo(MSI Z270 gaming M5) and when I went to use Steam the audio is all quiet. I use to run it at 12 max volume and now I am having to run it on 30. Its only steam that it affects. When I use discord i had to turn it down to compensate for the max volume going up.

Any suggestions?

yes, new mobo means new sound chip which means different hardware and different output levels. Try messing around with the drivers / accompanying software

Still strange its just doing that in steam. Have you checked clicking on your speaker icon and clicking volume mixer to see if steam is just not turned down?
