Cooler Master Cosmos 2 Club - Page 123

post #1221 of 6040
The Eisberg series of liquid cooling products will be a fully modular system, using standard compression fittings together with a "mix and match" philosophy. The system is designed not to be sealed for life, but to be modular and expandable as needs change. The general expectations are that the Eisberg 240 will out perform the H100. However, we won't know the exact details until the first reviews are posted at the end of this month or early May.


As for the fan controller, I've been told to expect a revised PCB within the next two months. For those of us based in Europe, I suspect we can make a standard warranty claim via CM's Headquarters in the Netherlands. Ideally the only info required will be the serial number of your case.

As for Ivy Bridge, I think is a good choice, as long as you don't already own a 2500k / 2600k. Ivy Bridge will have a short life. It's just Intel's transition to the 22nm manufacturing. It's basically the same Sandy Bridge but on 22nm, or as they call it, the "tick" in the CPU launch chart. I'm waiting for Haswell, the "tock", which will bring a huge performance over Sandy/Ivy.
About SSD's..I'm still trying to decide if I should go for a cheap PCI-e OCZ SSD, or for a high end SATA SSD. I'll buy just one, as it will be my first one, and I want to learn more before buying..
As for the sound card, I have absolutely no idea what to buy. I'm willing to spend as much as needed, because soundcards have a long life, and I won't regret paying much.. So far, the Creative X-FI Titanium HD PCIe looks good, but I don't know much about the Asus Xonar line, or Auzentech. I just want the best for music, games, movies.

The reason im going with Ivy bridge is im doing a competely new build.. itll be my first. With an extra $100 or so i can get the i7 3770k why not?

Ive heard mixed things about SSD but if you get one might as well get 2 and Raid them haha.

The Creatives drives are terrible and they do not update them often enough.. I myself decided on an Asus Xonar. They have the best sound quality for music. As for games i think Creative has a slight edge but If you get the Xonar ST or STX that has the headphone amplifier you cannot lose. I looked around alot and read alot of reviews and the best ones are the Xonars!

Here are some pics of my build, I know, the quality is awful, I'll take some other photos if you want, but there's not that much to see in my system right now.

Its off topic, but yes the Asus Xonar is by far the best sound card out there. I like the xonar DX the most. But the D2X is nice as well. They both have much higher SNR then the cvreative cards, and they use much better amps. The drivers work, and I have never had a problem with Xonar DX. And the creative dont have an edge on the xonar for gameing. The xonar supports EAX 5.0 dolby headphone and every other feature the creative does. The only difference is the Xonar does it with drivers that actually work!!!

Oh ya and I love my Cosmos II and I cant wait to get my hands ont he new fan controller!! two months frown.gif

I'd say maybe the Xonar's are the best GAMING sound card.... but there are other nice manufacturers out there, too. I'm quite fond of Auzentech. Been using my Auzentech Prelude for quite some time now, and it sounds phenomenal.
post #1228 of 6040
Auzentech does make great stuff. This is true. The simulated part of the Xonar is the EAX5.0. Because Creative is the only one with "Hardware support" for EAX. but Asus updated it so it is full support. and in this day and age it doesnt matter if somethign is emulated, because our processors are so overpowered and we have so many cores just sitting there not doing very much. One Sound Card that does look really good However is the HT Omega CLARO I I. it is made of some nice hardware. I think the only thing it is lacking is the EAX 5.0. as creative and asus are the only ones with full EAX 5.0 support. Still it looks like aan awsome card. But it is Expensive. the Xonar DX is only $80. I dont think you can get beter sound for that price.

And back on to the cosmos II topic. Did I hear that Coolermaster is Makeing a Window side Panel for our Awsome Case? If this is true, are there any pictures of what it will look like?

@Cosmin, I would go jump on either the HT Omega Claro II, Asus Xonar ST/STX or M-Audio Audiophile 192 for quality

All of these can be had for around or under $200 if memory serves me right and I can vouch when creative drivers aren't the best, sold my old Fatal1ty to a friend to buy my Xonar STX but their new line may be supported for a bit longer period who knows. But I'll vouch for the STX's versatility (be prepared to run a molex cable in to power it tho if you get it to power higher grade headphones) and it's sound.

Choice also comes down to your inputs/outputs needed Cosmin, I wouldn't go over the Xonar DX (as BigT mentioned) if you don't need a built in amp or straight 1/4" in/out or RCA outputs since you said you just want good sound for music, games and movies. Also depends on your other hardware being used, what type of speakers and headphones will you use with your soundcard?

Thanks for you feedback.

I know this is offtopic smile.gif but since we started talking about sound cards...

I know that Asus makes the best soundcards for games, but I want the best at eveything solution. I don't know about Creative's driver support, I has hoping that the new cards don't have problems anymore.
I chose Creative because it has everything included, especially hardware EAX. I want something with support for DTS-HD and Dolby true HD. As for headphones, I will be using only gaming headsets. I listen to movies and music only on the speakers.

I will be using an optical cable to connect 5.1/6/1 speakers. I don't know what speakers to buy yet.. from PC speakers there's not much to choose besides Logitech, and i don't like the quality that much. If I would go for something else, i'm guessing I would be needing an AMP or a receiver.. This audio part is out of my league. Probably the speakers will be the last thing to buy.



Back on topic, I noticed the humming is a little louder now. I hope they'll hurry with that fan controller. I simply cannot understand how did they launch this case with such a flaw. Didn't they test it before?
