my only last doubt about the titanium hd is after reading some newegg reviews im seeing people with overclocks are hearing pops and cracks all the time or just with HD video. im running my i5-2500k @ 5.0 Ghz 24/7...

anyone with an OC able to help me here? i take newegg reviews with a grain of salt because any idiot can buy something and put a neg review when in fact they are the problem themselves. however i cant help but feel a little hesitant to drop ~ $170 on a card that might give me such problems.

4.2ghz overclock and I'm not hearing any pops or hisses. I do not have my GPUs overclocked though.

My Titanium HD has popped once or twice, but I think it was due to it being smashed on-top of my overclocked GPU at full load.
I have no experience with the STX, but I love my Titanium HD. Its a great card, you won't be disappointed. thumb.gif

ok cool. thanks for the input thus far everyone, i appreciate it. my gpu isnt OC'd much at all and if i have to ill lower it, doesnt make much of a performance difference in most stuff i play right now anyway.

so whats the deal with OP AMPS? i read that you can change em to alter the sound of the card? anyone have a good description of what my options for OP AMPs are and their attributes?

Most people opt for the LME49720NA. They will tighten up the low end a little bit.

To install them, just unscrew the EMI shield. Pry off the stock op amps gently by inserting a flat head screw driver underneath them and very gently pulling up. Note where the dots are on top of the stock op amps. Take the replacement op amps and push them gently downward into the dip 8 sockets that you just pried the stock op amps out of. Make sure that the dots on the replacement op amps are in the same location as the dots on the stock op amps were when they were in the soundcard.

The op amps that you will be replacing are squared in red in the pic below (not my pic I got it from MunkyPoo).

That's an area I can't help you out with, sorry. I'm fairly clueless when it comes to other op amps.
