Isn't that what modding and small form factor builds are all about? tongue.gif

That's what draws us in and keeps us updating and fiddling wink.gif

But yeah, you're probably right

I finally got my MAXIMUS IMPACT and I must say, it is very impressive. I found it to be a bit of a pain to install since it needs to be pressed into the I/O shield to align the mounting holes (not sure if it is like that for anyone else). Now that I have it installed I figured I would give the Supreme FX card a shot since JJ was gushing about it over at NewEgg. Having just come off a ZxR I can not help but notice how garbage it is.

What are you guys using with your 250D & IMPACT combos? I love audio but not to the point where I would feel compelled to buy a Schiit Modi + Magni combo. A FiiO E17 might be what I need, but feel I would be missing out in the gaming department. Have any of you tried the Sound Blaster Omni and would recommend it?

Rene, basically all mobos require slight push to the panel, had this in msi mobo and gigabyte so worry not, it's normal smile.gif

That is a relief. I thought I was doing it wrong. thumb.gif

I made the huge mistake of getting overly excited and NOT reading the manual before installation. I had no clue you were to remove the nut and screws off the Impact power riser card. I spent the better half of 10 minutes wondering where the top screw holes were. When I found out what I did wrong I swear I hear this go off in my head;



Oh boy...

Hi Rene,

I had the same experience installing the MSI mobo in this case, so not limited to just the ASUS boards. Had to pry it into alignment with my thumbnail to get the holes to line up, but once screwed down, all was fine.

As for the SoundBlaster Omni, I am using one with my current setup. I had been shopping headphone dac/amps (including the FiiO and Schiit offerings) to use in place of the sound card in my old system and ran across the Omni. My old rig was running Vista and I had some driver issues with the Omni, but no issues with Win 7. I may have needed a clean uninstall/reinstall of the SB drivers or a clean Windows install, but as "luck" would have it , I had a hard drive failure a few weeks ago and decided that was my cue it was time to upgrade. I like the Omni from a convenience standpoint, basically like having the external control from the ZxR so you can easily switch from speakers to headphones and easily control/mute the volume, but in a USB external soundcard format. I have my system under my desk and the Omni sitting on my monitor base where it's easy to reach. I wouldn't say audiophile quality, but music, movies and gaming sound decent running thru speakers or a set of AKG K712 cans with a bit more headphone amplification than my old internal SB card provided.

For the money, I think the Omni is a good option for an external setup, especially with the mITX limitations. Mobo sound on the MSI and ASUS boards are probably as good if you don't mind plugging into the rear/front connections and controlling everything thru Windows.
