What can I do for the Molex adapter? I really don't want to run another cable just for the RGB lighting I think I might keep it off though.
If you don't plan on using the RGB strip that came with the card, i don't think it's required to use the 4pin molex power. I think it only powers the RGB strip.

Mostly, it also powers the LEDs inside the card (IE, the Sound Blaster X logo).

But the Molex does NOT power any sound elements of the card, that is correct. The two power circuits are isolated from each other.

Yeah I decided I liked the Logo off after plugging in a Molex adapter from my EVGA power supply.
The problem with the Logo it shines bright Red untill the software pops up like 1 minute later. You can still see the logo it's white just fine if you case has some lighting.

Is there anyway to use both outputs at the same time. headphones & Speaker?

It's annoying to change it all the time.
Ergonomic wise this cards sucks hard.



My Titanium HD was easy to handl...

Sound card market will soon become more interesting.
EVGA launched NU Audio and Creative prepare AE-9 worth 300$.

I don't like because they plan to use white PCB again...

NU Audio might have decent hardware but it's software side is subpar. I don't see that changing any time soon.

This thread is an absolute mess. Between the obvious language issue ( I suspect some here don't speak English nativity so they rely on google translate or other), and the lack of actual information, nothing is gained from this. Let me help you all out.

I actually have this sound card. Purchased it from my local shop here in Ontario, Canada (Canada Computers). Installed it on the top PCIE x1 slot on my motherboard. I didn't bother with the RBG as I find that it's nonsense. Went to the creative website and downloaded the latest driver and software. I can whole hardly say that I have never had any issues with this at all. Created my own game profiles, set it to 7.1 surround, everything is crisp, clear, no static, no feedback.

I'm not an audiophile at all, but I paired this with some budget Samson SR850 headset and it was 100000% better than the onboard and the old headset I was using (Plantronics Rig 500 HD 7.1).
If anyone needs validation, I can snap a pic of the sound card in my case as well as a screen shot of this thread with the Creative software.
