It's Creatives HiFi Audio. Personally you would be wasting money to get anything in the $125 and under range as it's just as good if not better.

If you already had a high dollar Soundcard then I would use that but if not then save your dough and see if you can live with it. Cause it really is a nice feature and why the MoBo is so expensive imho. I listen to everything but Country music and the Soundblaster on this MoBo sounds very nice. And the HD audio doesn't skip a beat when I'm gaming either.

All good. To be honest I didn't like it when I saw it on Newegg before my bro got his. I was more interested in the Cosmos Pure Black. But then I saw his up close and had to have one. It's got a face only a mother could love. lol

But man once I got mine and started doing the little things to it, I'm glad I did. The airflow in the Cosmos just doesn't hold up to the airflow of the 932.

Cool thing is you really don't need a lot of tools to mod this thing either. The only specialty tool I used on mine was the soldering iron. Changed the blue LEDs' out for low intensity red. Everything else has been pretty standard fare.

It must not be making very good contact, because the factory heatsink/heatpipe works very good if you are blowing air on it.

My NB/SB are idling 37/33c(27c ambient) no air conditioner. They only go up a couple degrees under load.

edit: 40/36c running prime.

I have been overclocking my CPU and monitoring the temps closely, the CPU stays under 55 C, but NB is around 68-70 C in stress! I have all other voltages than CPU voltage on auto. The case has good airflow. Is the NB temp too high?

My sb still runs cooler but know only bt 1-2c, the fan trick however did wonders for my cpu load stays around mid 30's or lower on load.
Now I need to mod that side panel so as to get plenty of air to it
