    No.

    We are not.

    Please keep posting. Someday, I'll be in the same room as my PC and I'll post some new pics. How's the sound card? I have had nothing but (driver) problems with my Sound Blaster cards, but that's probably changed in the last year or so.

    Thanks ;) I haven't had any problems with my sound card drivers in a while, not since I started using Win7, funny think is creative don't even update their drivers that often either... but to be honest with you, I think they are delivering a solid package at the moment, haven't had that much time to test this new card yet, but I'll let you know how it goes :toast:

    My problems started with my transition to Win7. I was so pumped when I installed my SB Titanium and started to play BFBC2.

    Then the squeals started, and wouldn't stop. So I pulled it and went back to on board. I should give it a shot again.

    I just removed my X-Fi from this PC, and it didn't give any problems before, hope your experience is better this time :toast:

    Is the new Creative card decent? I read somewhere that they were just really basic sound cards with a fancy cover, marked up a lot.

    I'm in the market for a sound card, my onboard sound gets hammered in some games, and crashes my system.

    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...
