    Because other manufacturers never rework a PCB?

    @ Drunkenvalley; It depends. Since they will use twice as big memory modules rather than twice as many (else it'd be a 512 bit membus, or two would have to share channels), it all depends on the PCB, as always. Same pcb, just more memory? Get the same waterblock.

    I've never seen the added bit at the top, least I don't think I have. Just looks weird is all, no need to be so condescending, tetris.

    Wait what speakers/phones are you using it with again?

    Also, tried playing with the equalizer?

    Some people don't even bother playing around with their equalizers to find out how their speakers/phones react to it and if they can improve their listening experience *cough* Deltrus *cough*.

    Whoa there.

    I'm not even using 'good' stuff. I got an old Altec Lansing speaker system with noise issues (poor design in the sub - amp and power supply are practically right next to each other). Also using a pair of Sennheiser PC330's. They're good, but not super enthusiast headphones by any stretch. Even then, the difference is night and day compared to the old X-Fi. I know what's going on my giftmas list... 'spensive Sennheisers!

    Edit: Yes I did play with the EQ.

    I played with the EQ a lot yesterday.

    Then after Cyanotical and Marest hounded me on Facebook about using this setting:

    [------------------]

    I've been using it for Dream Theater/Iron Maiden and it is working out very well.

    Here's how it looks in the case. I'm gonna have to rethink some wiring I have done later. For now, I just removed that plate above the PSU and pulled the Molex wire used for the fan controller.



    Also, for some reason, it didn't like the bottom x16 slot, so I had to use the middle one. :<

    Looks good Asera! (A little messy, but oh well) :P

    How much of a difference did you get with your headset?

    The difference is ridiculous on both the crappy speakers and PC330's.

    Also, check out the corrosion on the old X-Fi...

    Well atleast you have the option of putting it below your GPU >_> I have mine pretty much frying against the GPU backplate because it can't go anywhere else...I've wedged a piece of cardboard between the two so the heat doesn't conduct straight from the metal backplate to the metal STX shielding.

    But I read that the circuitry/caps on the STX can withstand up to 125c, which is neat


    Also, oh gawd that corrosion.

    You should clean it with some saltwater :P

    Dat PCB, never seen anything like it O.o

    But then again I arrived at around the SB time, so I'm still a little puppy compared to the lot of you.

    My speakers will blow your mind.

    Costed $30. Does the job when I'm on Twitch/Youtube ^^

    I've had my soundcard for a good 2½ years now, no corrosion

    What about the PCB looks so different? O.o I came in just before SB, like, maybe a month before, and I have seen it. It's a low-end sound card. Woohoo?
