umm... not sure exactly what you're talking about unless your op-amps came damaged.
Not me was wondering if anybody had recieved any damaged that they got to work after some bending. Or if anyone had put a chip on a board it wasnt made to take.

Anyone found out if the "X-Fi Xtreme Gamer Fatal1ty Professional" is one of the good ones or bad ones yet? It's somewhat cheaper than the other models. I don't want to mod the board so.

You truly sure about this?

Quote:
THE X-FI CARDS THAT SHOULD BE AVOIDED:
-X-Fi XtremeAudio
-X-Fi XtremeGamer
-Any of the low-profile X-Fis

THE GOOD ONES TO GET:
X-Fi Elite Pro
X-Fi Fatal1ty FPS
X-Fi Platinum
X-Fi XtremeMusic (best value)

ONES I AM UNSURE about:
X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Professional Series
This is one of the new ones. The other new ones are the XtremeAudio and XtremeGamer, which are both low profile. The low profile models do not support digital out (not easily, anyway), and they use lower quality components. The XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Professional Series is also new, but it is not low profile. If it is based on the same model as the good ones, it would be OK, but I don't know if it is. So it would be best to just avoid it.

I tried this mod and busted my platinum which is still laying around and I just bought the gamer fatality. I know some parts of the PCB are different already between the two and the writing on the IC's looks different but I was in bad light and I wanted to play with my new speakers and sound card so I haven't pulled teh numbers yet. when I get home today I can take a peak and see if they are using the same op-amps or not which if they are it should be the same swap I hope.

Sounds good.

How do you know it is busted? You think it may be repairable? I may be interested..

i have been informed by my Blackgate dealer that it has been stopped from production.

i've heard this rumor for over than 2 years now...
hope it's just a marketing tactic to make ppl stock blackgate.

Hmm.. so I read through the first 10 or so pages of this thread and found that soloz2 was modding these cards, I PMd him and found that he won't do it anymore. He suggested an electronics repair shop if I tell them exactly what to do, but I trust people here more.

Is anyone else willing to do it (paid of course ) ? Thanks
