post #51 of 979
As for the shield I think we just need to have the card at the bottom PCI slot and the ECS paper right on the bottom of the case.

if gaming is one of your top priorities, and you play a lot of some games that support it fully (BF2/2142, some others), then by all means get the X-Fi, I love mine. If music/recording is a much higher priority than gaming, then there are better choices.

What a great mod.

This thread coupled with the OnlinDeal Xtreme Music X-Fi thread equals CyberDruid's first electronic gizmo mod!

I dunno why but this mod makes perfect sense to me--I've always had an appreciation for good sound systems and everything the modder describes makes sense from an audiophile POV.

Why Creative would scrimp on the Opamps and Caps is beyond me--as muich as they charge for these cards I think they could easily afford to use soid caps and better amps.

One reason I find this mod so appealling is that if you screw it up it does not take out your whole rig...unlike GFX card mods, CPU socket mods and Droop mods...which a careless application of heat or solder can destroy in a blink...

I am gonna give this a shot with one of the Frys deal cards.

Thanks!

I'm smelling another mod, if sucessful that could prove to be another page in your portfolio, to sell as a CD product.

You sneaky...you must have Haxored my Brainage

I just bought the Fry's card...now to locate a wick for desoldering and those semiconductors mentioned...

Anybody here use an online elctronics place that I should check out? This looks like fun...and Bragging rights

Not sure if it increases my e-member or not...but still looks/sounds like a good thing to try

I've just order my three free OpAmps....

I just did some research and ERS Paper is just a Faraday Cage. Why can't I just you a sheet of anti-static bag or aluminum foil? I could use a wire to ground it to the case as well.
