    Any install instructions? or just uninstall and delete official ones and install from scratch?

    Uninstall the old/official ones, run the latest version of driver sweeper and select the 'asus -sound' option. click ok. restart and just install the ones downloaded from brainbit. those drivers should work no matter which Xonar soundcard you have.

    afaik there are some teething issues with the new driver pack installing on a 64bit O/S - driver signing and whatnot but there are instructions on how to get around that located on their website. If not then the previous driver pack which is what im running now still works great for me and i havent had any problems with any game since I started using brainbit drivers.

    Didnt have to do anything aside from reboot after uninstall official Asus drivers, F8 disable signed driver thingy, install modded drivers and reboot as normal, works fine, though have only tested with the start up sound lol phones will be coming out in a bit :p

    Ah, I was referring more to the unsigned driver method as opposed to the driver sweeper part, but yea I didn't run it :eek: couldn't be bothered tbh hope it don't bite me in the ass. TBH I generally only run driver sweeper if I have a specific driver issue I am trying to fix, touch wood Win7 seems to handle driver updates incredibly well compared to previous versions and the "delete all driver software" option helps too. I also really don't update drivers a lot as I typically reinstall Windows every other month for one reason or another (sometimes my own fault being a tinkerer) so always have the latest drivers installed.

    Mines been going strong for over 10years. I think i bought it in 2000, - I can barely remember that far back but it was definitely the time i was started college because that was the time i really started putting my own rig together,

    I remember i bought one from C.E.X. first, but it was a dead card. they offered to swap it for another they had instock but i just demanded a refund. After that I went and bought it brand new and its been working great for me all through to i think it musta been 2005 or 2006 when I got myself an XFi Xtreme Music.

    Have you tried using the D.K drivers with it??

    I've come to the conclusion that with bacon it's how it's cooked that makes the most difference, good cooking can make even the worst Bacon taste excellent

    Thanks man, just reminded me to tell the Mrs to get the bacon out of the freezer :rockout: didn't remember to get it out last night so had to settle for sausage and egg instead of bacon and egg sarnie on Christmas morning!!! :cry:And I agree, bacon has to be cooked right, personally I find pan ffrying it with a little butter until brown but not really crispy gives the best tasting bacon and I am generally an unsmoked kind of guy when it comes to bacon.

    Everyone had a good day?

    Where would be a good place to buy TV cables quickly?

    I'm thinking of just going down to Tesco and buying one of their own brand HDMI cables
