here is a diagram explaining it better then i can

You don't have to get a sound card. There are also external audio interfaces that offer better options, not just for playback, but also recording. It's very handy to have the volume control right on top of the desk. Most of these run off usb interface. And if you're a real audiophile, you have the option of balanced trs , midi, or digital outputs, for monitors or connecting to other audio devices.

Seems to me on board sound has gotten so good that it's hard to tell the difference. Of course it might just be because I'm getting older?

Had issues with sound on last 2 mobos, including sabertooth. Depends on ur idea of quality. High quality audio is the difference between life and death during fps gameplay, listening for footsteps. lol. Most anything dedicated is going to be better than integrated.

I can't get my ram to 1600 mhz in my bios.

It's on auto, and it stays on 1333.

If I put it on 1600 mhz in my bios, the system wont start up. and restarting it, will show me the tekst, overclocking failed

I ran memtest for an hour, no errors found

It shows 1333 during boot up.



Both CPU-Z and AI SUITE show 667 (isch) mhz


Edit:

When checking DRAM voltage in bios, (1.501V), I disabled EPU power saving mode (something similar)

I read somewhere that disabling this, would get my RAM to it's 1600 mhz.

Now I started up, and during boot it showed 1440 mhz????

CPU-Z shows 722.4 mhz now, but AI SUITE still shows 667 mhz???



Any comments on this? eh-smiley.gif

Hey all, regarding the previous posts on soundcards, i have a Asus Zonar dx2 in my setup, is it possible to connect my front headphone jacks to the soundcard?
post #3897 of 10135
So ever since I switched my PC case and updated my BIOS to 1604 (Planning on getting an FX8320 or 8350 in the next month or 2.)
I haven't been able to get my 960T to unlock the other 2 cores ( I used to run it stable 24/7 as a hex @4.2ghz) .

I also was previously able to get to about 4.3ghz as a quad stable.

Now if I even try to go above 4.2ghz no matter what settings I do my PC either doesn't go past post or locks up loading windows. frown.gif

I'm fine with 4.2ghz on my 960T for now but still odd that this is happening...

You probably need to manually set the timings right to hit 1600. And I don't doubt that when you do, AI Suite will say 800mhz even if you're at 1650 or something.
