Only problem I run into with my sound card and it may be something g on my end but when I have my mic hooked up to the sound card it won't record shadoway sound. I checked all the settings. Set everything the way it suppose to be. No big deal as I hook it o to on board and can't even tell the difference. (Mod mic). The sound card itself is great better than my dgx for sure and better than on board now a sound card isn't needed more of if you want that extra experience

bit of a technical question for the peeps here, if anyone is running a similar mobo setup with these cards. got my ZX through today for a new build (huge box!) and i wanted to try and make sure it would work on a board i'm looking at. it's the two asus ones i'm choosing between:

h97m-e

1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16 mode, gray)
3 x PCIe 2.0 x1

h97m-plus

1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16 mode, gray)
1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4 mode, black)
2 x PCI

obviously the cheaper e model is fine, but the plus has the slot i'd need to use at the bottom (may be a tight fit, though there's no necessary pins/headers that would be blocked in that area). but it's a x16/x4 slot and this card runs at x1. i was wondering if there might be any compatibility issues or if the two slot would share any bandwidth etc as they're both meant for graphics devices. looking at the manual it doesn't look like you can change the speed manually, only adjust the slots between auto, gen 2, gen 1. if anyone is running the ZX or equivalent on an asus board with the same pcie 2.0 x16 slot, would appreciate to hear that it's working and full compatible. cheers smile.gif

hey guys is it just me or does this sound card sound much better with sbx studio disabled all together? I swear its way more natural and alive without the studio.

I find that all sound sounds better being played the way its meant to be without extra bloat and all sorts of other stuff added in that should not be there.

Could just be me..
post #3346 of 4715
IS the sbx studio stuff purely software enhancement or does it actually use the sound card in some way?

don't think that's just you, most amps have a 'pure' mode with turns off all processing that generally has the cleanest sound, best high-end. way better for music and any quality source.

Should I have play stereo through digital output checked ? I'm using a receiver with digital cable into the z and have a 5.1 setup. Or should I just check it for headphone use ?

From the ASUS page the plus is:

1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16 mode, gray)
1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4 mode, black)

Typically that PCIe 2.0 slot is going a full-length running a maximum of x4 off the chipset. This bandwidth is not shared by the PCIe 3.0 slot but by other components on the chipset which doesn't look like any. Therefore there should be no issues with your card in the x4 slot as a x1 will fit.

cheers for that but i think i'm gonna go with the e model regardless. more choice as to which slot i can use and leaves options to add additional PCIe cards in the future like a usb 3.1 card. can't wait to get this thing up and running, the front module was an essential part of the package seeing as i enjoyed many years use with the x-fi platinum w/ front panel. no more ribbon cables and hopefully creative have improved the driver situation since then smile.gif
