    Hey all.
    Figured I would pick your brains again.
    This is a pretty simple question really.
    What is the best value on surround sound speaker?
    I dont need the best brand, but a good brand that will last.

    Thanks again guys.

    The Logitech X-530 isn't bad and their z5300 is really nice.

    I have the X-530s myself, and I think they rock, good power (they were good enough for a party I had a while ago :) ) nice low bass sounds from the woofer and good positional sound from the satellites, a bargain for less than $70 (in my country)

    For OCing I use a tool called CPUFSB which lets you change the FSB frequncy using your mobo's PLL chip. My mobo has a "locked" PLL, the ICS 952601, so I use the ICS 952607 in CPUFSB and I can OC it without problems...
    About P.A.T., beleive it or not, when I bought my mobo, it came enabled by default, I don't know why, being an Intel mobo and all, but the thing is, programs like everest report that P.A.T. works in my mobo (i.e. 875), guess I'm just lucky :cool:
