Hey guys,

So I was looking at getting the ASRock Extreme9 motherboard and I just noticed the soundcard it has.

Posted Image

Now , I always have just used the normal inbuilt soundcard ports for my 5.1 speakers (green, orange, black and pink) and I dont see any colors on the ASRock Game Blaster soundcard.
Does it have special ports and cant I use my normal speakers ?

Find some diff pics of it. I am fairly certain it has the standard colours in the plastic insulation rings. From this angle however all you can see is the petty gold contacts.

Also Nyt why must you upgrade again? :lol:

Edit: whoops to be clear yes your 5.1 speakers wil just plug in normally.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

most likely it will have one of those octopus adapters
but check to make sure
however, it could also not have a line in, or spdif in, only

It seems its just gold plated connectors and the manual directs you to which connectors to use with 5.1 sound.

Seems Im safe :)

There should be little icons next to each connector too, in addition to what the manual will say. :P
