    There's an ongoing debate about on board vs discrete sound cards, and this is not the right thread to discuss it ;) but I can tell you the current sound core chip packs four DSP cores, so it it has quite a bit more horse power under the hood than your average C-Media or Realtek audio chips, and this extra power is used for some cool features like vertical positional sound and enhancing compressed audio so it has a wider range, among other nice tricks :)

    There's some other things like better DACs, gold plated connectors, better signal to noise reduction ratio and EMI shielding for higher fidelity sound, in the end it all depends on whether you need those features or not.

    I hope you find a discrete sound card that covers all your needs :)


    I know huh... It really is a nice looking little piece of hardware :p

    My new build Corei5 2500k

    Hey guys, still a bit of cable management needed, but here she is all in action with the Asus 6950 Direct CUii at 940/1400 shaders unlocked... and the core i5 2500k@5.0ghz

    I painted the inside of the case black with some black hammerite and i'm happy with the looks.
    Was a bit of a rush job as i couldn't wait to get the goodies installed.

    Looks really good the next thing I would do is some more cable management and some cable sleeving w/ Cable extensions.

    I'd flip the rad around so the fittings are on the front of the case. route tubing from pump to rad, to cpu to res to pump. Rotate the block 90 degrees so the tubing is one up and one down.

    Buy a fan for the ram, or cobble something together.

    Otherwise, I think it looks great. :rockout:

    No idea, CPU's built in temp sensor stops working below -10c and it never goes above -10c when running Intel Burn Test at 5Ghz!

    I would say -20c'ish under load and -30c on idle..Maybe even colder...

    There's more then enough insulation, If it's applied properly then you don't need loads of it :)

    It's in a ASUS P67 Sabertooth mobo now anyway ;)

    I don't see myself going Down Under anytime soon. Besides, this thing's a bitch to carry up the stairs. I can't imagine carrying it half-way across the globe...

    Well I know that now all my WC gear is gone :laugh:


    Silly thing is I spent the proceeds on silly things rather than things I needed so regret it more than normal :laugh:


    Ahh well, when I get another job I'll invest in a nice 420mm rad and some nice pumps and fans : ]


    Good job on making me look at my own rig and pull a face like this though :ohwell: :toast:

    I love making loops with small tubing runs. It looks SOOOO much better than big loops. The downside, of course, it everything is fairly difficult to move around and pull out of the case.
