    Nice skills there. I see at least 1 opamp replaced and many of the decoupling capacitors have been removed and bypassed.

    Supposedly the cap mod you did makes the DAC more stable and of course... gives better sound.

    Have you replaced the power filter capacitor ? I've been wanting to do the cap mod and also replace the power filter capacitor with a 2200uF 16V Blackgate on my X-Fi Xtreme Music.

    Those 2200uF 16V Blackgate are hard to come by now. I've heard you can replace the power filter capacitor with a Nichicon KG of similar microfarads and same/higher voltage.

    All the op-amps are replaced and caps bypassed. The caps were changed before, I'm looking for the pictures now.

    Yeah, I have skills.. Threw it at Random Murderer and said.. mod it.. :roll:

    Edit:

    Power filter was changed also.. Try searching for my posts in the X-fi club house.. I know I placed details on it.. I'll also talk with RM to pm ya on the mods.. He was more crazy about modding my sound card then I was

    I'll stick with distilled water. That shit can't be good for your cooling hardware and can't be anywhere near as efficient as pure water. I don't care what he claims.
