    Creative Announces Sound Blaster X3 with Super X-Fi; Upgrade Promotion for Existing Users

    when that happened, it was with an outdated product and a very rare occurence, and yet was resolved soon after by MS and creative, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    Creative Announces Sound Blaster X3 with Super X-Fi; Upgrade Promotion for Existing Users

    Still their products always had the wow factor, quite ahead of the competition. Btw, the software side of things has been quite clean and non intrusive for some time, plus any audiophile knows on-board sound is not enough.

    Creative Announces Sound Blaster X3 with Super X-Fi; Upgrade Promotion for Existing Users

    I think they do pretty well, have a good product portfolio , their website is sales oriented, I support them and really love their products. No issues whatsoever here with sb-Z pcie, with robust stable albeit old drivers, not a single glitch.

    nice to know about the ps4 d-pad, however for compatibility i consider a native ms product. it will require either bluetooth or usb receiver, the latter will support headphones audio plugged to the elite.

    benefits of xbox one elite controller with various pc games vs. keyboard mouse, Casual gamer here, should I pull the trigger

    Have an opportunity for xbox elite controller for 100 bucks, new condition, however i am skeptical for the benefits for say exploring new game genres, currently i play fps games with keyboard/mouse. Do have many classic emulators as well. So inputs and opinions for this deal are welcome.

    I have two h100i v2 in my system, all four fans are controllable via corsair link(in pairs), and having good temps I simply set them to 40% constant and hear nothing at all. If needed, they ramp up accordingly.

    When can 16gb of RAM become a bottleneck?
