Help with soundcard size - Page 2

post #11 of 19
what kind of speakers or headphones do you plan on using? I don't think it will make a big difference on temperature.

so my gpu won't be begging me for air after a couple of hours? might as well just skip the wifi dongle then and go pci-e


thanks, really.

thanks for your patience

edit:

running with this idea. i'm looking at the xonar dg right now, but was wondering if there is a 7.1 equivalent (need Dolby headphone)

The DG/DGX has Dolby Headphone.

Ehhhhhhhh It depends on your GPU. If you gpu was anything like my EVGA super clock 560ti then no....don't put ANYTHING next to that card. Even with all the airflow in the world, that things still ran pretty toasty.

If your card peaks at 70-75C then go ahead.

Well I would have suggested to get a newer GPU that stays much cooler, but I guess you will be able to OC that 2500K now biggrin.gif

hmmm... i heard some comparison videos between cmss-3d and dolby headphone today, and now i really want cmss-3d drool.gif

so i went to creative's website, looked at their card selection, and NONE of the information pages mention CMSS-3D! all they mention is thx trustudio (which is godawful) and
SBX something-or-other. did Creative ditch cmss-3d in their newer cards? and if they did, WHY? it sounds SO good confused.gif
