I ordered a X-Fi Platinum refurb from Monarch for $80, well it came today and it had no front panel. Well the card did not look like the Platinum so I ran the Autoupdate to check. ITS A FATAL1TY PRO!!!!!

Well difference is it would have the XRam on it. When I usually do an autoupdate it would of course say the name of the product i.e. Xtrememusic.

It also has the red "F" on the side and I dont think the Platinum has that, can anyone confirm?

Agreed. Why is this guy such a hype? It's basically the same product but usually different looks.

I am pretty sure thats what the platinum is except with the panel. They both had the extra xram. So I guess it would detect it as a Fatality pro

Guys I dont care about his name, I care about the XRam. And I got it for cheaper then my Xtrememusic!

The Platinum does not have the Xram ony the Fatal1ty and the Elite Pro do.

Correct no front panel was in the box. I emailed them about this so maybe they wills end it as it said nothing in the sale about no including it.

fatlity pro? do you mean FPS?

The fatality FPS is actually higher than the platinum. The platinum doesnt have XRAM.

The XRAM cards have a LED on the top of them. I believe the 2 cheaper versions do not.

Elite Pro(has XRAM)> Fatal1ty FPS(has XRAM)>Platinum(doesnt)>ExtremeMusic(doesnt)

And mine has the LED F on it so I think I actually have the Fatal1ty here. I am going to look a litte futher into it. I am gonna read some reviews so see some detailed pics. I have not seen any solid reivews of the Platinum though?

I will take it out and snap some pics, maybe someone can confirm this with there own Fatal1ty card.

Also it did come in a Platinum box.

Then you have the FPS, which is a steal, even if you didnt get the faceplate!

There is the one you should of got. It doesnt have the F led. Lucky.. the store must of messed up your order. I would keep the FPS though.

I cut my finger bad removing it also, however the pics turned out crappy with the card on my desk vs the Xtrememusic.

This is great as I ordered 3 red Thunderblades also lol.
