Soloz sent me the card with about 20 caps replaced... the gold ones...
What about overheating?!?!? do u have nice airflow around your sound card? You had all those nice HS's on it though... so I bet you made sure of that... try Soloz's recommendation for the gold cleaner stuff from GuitarCenter
I did a clean driver install by going into safe mode and running Driver Cleaner Pro...didn't do anything.
Yeah, my soldering looks fine, and I DID short out those four caps.
I don't have too much airflow around the X-Fi, but it shouldn't really need it. I guess I will try the stuff soloz2 recommended, but man, it doesn't sound like that will really work either.
rep for the help
