    Which sound card should I buy?

    So I am in the market for a sound card. My on board audio just isn't cutting it anymore. So the choices are Soundblaster ZxR or Asus STX 2. I am leaning towards the STX. I've heard it has cleaner audio since it is powered directly from the PSU. I will be using the Beyerdynamic DT 990 Premium 600 Ohm. Thanks for the advice!

    So I tweaked the Asus control panel enabled Dolby Headphone and DH-2 and set it to 8 speakers. Sounds much better. Listening to Gojira is pure bliss.

    DOOM

    Just wanted to tell you guys how badass the new Doom is I'm a seasoned FPS player and I've gotta say this one is almost perfect. It runs quite well on my system. I am running it on max settings at 4k and it rarely drops below 60 FPS.
  5. So I have a 140mm fan. I want to put it in muh case not sure where. I have 1x140mm in the front for intake and 1x140mm in rear for exhaust. I have room for 1 more in the front or 3 on top for exhaust.

    5930k Temps.

    I have my 5930k OC'ed to 4.4 GHz. I just installed the Noctua U12s yesterday with push pull fans. I was using the U14s with a single fan and my temps were much better. Thinking maybe I needed to repaste the CPU I just got done doing that. I am using Noctua's paste the good stuff. So anyway now with the U12s installed I ran Aida64 stress test and hit 83c?! My temp right now is 35c which seems kinda high. Am I missing something?

    Got the STX installed I am very pleased. The sound is leaps and bounds better than on board!

    PCIe #3 on the bottom is open there is so little room since it's next to the PSU.

    Which sound card should I buy?

    So I received the STX 2 yesterday. The packaging is top notch. The plastic clam shell keeps the card very secure. Problem is that my HSF for CPU is 140mm and over hangs the top PCIe slot. I have my GPU in slot three which covers the PCIe1x slot. So I have to wait till Tuesday to get the Noctua U12s in..sigh. Then I can put the GPU in slot 1 and install the sound card. I also bought the new Doom but want to wait to play it till I get the good sound going eheh. Since I have this sound card it pretty much eliminates doing SLi now. I'm thinking about waiting till the EVGA 1080 Classified comes out and just running a single card setup for good. Which means I could have saved money on the PSU...

    I had the 1500 v2 not a bad headset at all for the price.

    I ordered the STX 2 this morning. Going to be here Friday! Can't wait to see how much better my DT's will sound with this sucker. I also needed to buy a keyboard. The one I had was super cheap. Never buy Gamedias. The keys just stopped working. So I got the Razer Black Widow Ultimate Stealth 2014!

    I've heard of people using a card for 10 years... So they mustn't go obsolete that quick.

    Is it better than the STX? I'm wary about Powercolor. I have heard a lot of bad stuff about them.

    Yeah the STX 2 should be good enough then. It will make my DT 990's sound awesome!

    Ok, so I'm also thinking about this one. 127 DB SNR!!! Would it be worth it to get this over the STX 2?
  18. So I am new to OC. I want to play Witcher 3 at 4k and not drop too many settings. How do I OC the 980 Ti? I am already using EVGA Precision 16 with agressive fan curve. Ok so I got a stable OC of 1454 core and 4257 memory. My Heaven score went from 914 to 1015. Not bad.
  19. I have my voltage increased by +15%. This card is made for overclocking so I'm sure its warrantied. Is 100 points in a benchmark worth the possible adverse effects of an OC?
  20. 1550 is nuts. Remember what card it was? I also wanted to ask if OC will shorten the life span of my card?

    LG 31MU97 32" 4K monitor

    I found this monitor on Newegg for $800 bucks! Pretty good considering it was $1600 retail when it came out. So I'm going to be getting one the 1st of June. Can't wait to see the difference compared to what I have now. Is this monitor 31" or 32"?

    I had a feeling I should've waited for Pascal.

    The 980 Ti supports DX 12.
  24. Hi guys. I had a feeling when I was building my system to wait for Pascal. Nvidia just confirmed the GTX 1080 as selling for $699 with 8gb of VRAM and it will be faster than SLI 980's. So my question is should I just get another 980 ti Classified for SLI or get a GTX 1080 then sell my 980 ti use the money I get from that to buy a 2nd 1080 for SLI?
