    Considering that this rig has seen daily use for about 3 years now it's holding up pretty well.

    Although I am using this rig ATM I am moving toward reviving my old Asus Blitz P35 board so I can let my son have his rig back. We share it...but I think it's time for poppa to have his own PC again.

    Got a new sound card, had to rid of my X-Fi, as I don't have any more PCIe slots available:

    [​IMG]

    Looks like Creative as learned a little from Apple when it comes to boxing their stuff, this is unlike any other card I've ever unboxed from them:

    [​IMG]

    This is the card installed, and plugged to my speakers:

    [​IMG]

    I love the color contrast:

    [​IMG]

    The card has some nice tricks up its sleeve, and it definitely is a step up from onboard audio, sound is crystal clear, and positioning when using THX TruStudio Pro is breathtaking:

    [​IMG]

    All in all, its a nice little card, I'm still playing with the surround settings :) Next upgrade, the Recon3D Omega wireless headset :rockout:

    I love the look of your HAF-X that is exactly what I'm trying to go for with mine, did you manage to achieve the glowing red with just led fans though or did you have to use any cathodes?

    You need a Trooper so you have a handle for that metric shit-ton of case;) Make your LAN lugging easier at least.

    Clean rig!

    Eh it's not too bad, as long as I arrive early before all the seat downstairs are taken lugging it up stairs now .. . that sucks. Also yeah it's super clean I clean it out with an air compressor every other 2-3 weeks, it's a dedicated folding machine.

    Depends, if you can get the PCIe version instead, I would say go for it, I still haven't figured how to use the TOSLINK cable included for 5.1 output, dunno if its even possible, but even using the 3.5mm jack gives you a virtual surround environment, even simulating height positioning, seems like Creative has packed some serious horsepower under the hood, but I would prefer the option for real 5.1 output. In my case I have no choice but to go USB :ohwell:

    I can tell you sound is much clearer than my on board sound for one thing.

    BTW, nice HAF X rig man! :rockout:

    Thanks man! :toast: I used the LED fans and a couple cathode lights to get the red glow :)
