There's one thing I noticed about the onboard audio. If I don't have any music or secondary sounds playing in the background, my .wav files (instant messenger and others) echo for some strange reason.

Anyone know how to fix this problem?

Edit: Fixed it. Have to go to sound control panel and disable all special effects. This in turn disables the creative xfi-2 and thx properties, but sound distortion is silly.

Hey m8s! Sorry for staying off a bit but i've had hardly enough time for building up my new Sandybridge lately

Here some remarks about the last pages
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
LA_KINGS_FAN:
YEAH! The noctua's mechanical system for putting the heatsink down on the cpu is very fine, eh!?
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
to the guy with dual boot OS:
-> Why aren't you using VMWare or VirtualPC? You get so much advantages comparing to a dual boot system! And it's so flexible, easy to backup and and and...
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
This pic is presented especially for Ovlacek, top owner of so much sandy bridges, that Miami Beach must've been closing down already some beaches for missing sand....

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Onboard Audio:
We've made some comparisons and all of my friends with extra X-Fi card are sticking on it:
- crappling noises with onboard
- far too less max loudness with onboard
- problems with teamspeak speech recording
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
My own experiences yet:
- have had problems with system stability at first because there must've been going something wrong with the AUTO selection of BIOS RAM-Parameters! I've selected those G.Skill Eco with 1600MHz and then 1.3V, but it seems that the board, especially after Upgrade to 0605 BETA, setted up some very unfitting parameters that the pc shuts down already inside UEFI!
I've setted up 800MHz ultraconservative to get Win7 installed and now i've climbed to 1333MHz and untill now it works fine.
- Intel NIC: My Win7 Eventviewer remarks a lot of warnings concerning the NIC loosing network connection:
"Intel ® 82579V Gigabit Network Connection Network link is disconnected"
Since Aunt google says to me, this seems to be a very common problem with this Intel NIC on a lot of different P67 and Z68 mainboards from ASUS to MSI and so on! (e.g. here)
I've taken the latest Intel driver from Intel website, besides the most experiences in the web concerning this problem don't show that it's driver related, i'll give this first a try. Besides my suspicions are going also to the energy saving modes of the NIC, i switched off already this feature.
-> Please, have a look into your event viewer, too and sort for WARNINGS with SOURCE e1cexpress!

Get yourself a SSD! I've never had an OS installation ever beforce with so much smoothing clicks! It speeds up the normal work that good mood is becoming usual! (LESEN = Reading Performance - SCHREIBEN = Writing Performance, Zugriffszeit = Accesstime)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Played yesterday some rounds BC2, comparing to my former Core2Quad system, everything's much more smoother besides the system is not optimized (1333MHz and not 1600MHz)

When I had my computer setup and running, I did notice that while I'm browsing, a couple of times the browser would just stop and no matter what I do or click on links, it wouldn't do anything. Still shows that I'm connected and everything. But I can close the browser then reopen it and it woulld work. Not sure if that's the nic problem you're speaking of though.

To be honest, those pics didnt statisfy me..

The problem: Ive bought a QX-2000 for this build, but iam struggling to find the right CPU cooler (max 120mm!), and the right VGA - since this also can not be higher, than the rear screwing clip + 10mm -> because of this, i think the DirectCUII 6950 2GB is no option...
I tought that the PC-V354 would be a better case but, as i see, its not THAT much better... it would cost me 4x of this, and it doenst even have more space for the vga, and only like... 10mm? more for the CPU cooler...

One question tough: What if i only mount the lower fan for the Noctua, and let blow upwards? Would be better for airflow in this case, but does it still cool efficiently?
