This review is from: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy FX 5.1 PCIe Sound Card with 600 ohm Headphone Amp
Pros: If your motherboard has no sound, like mine, it will give you that and not much more.
In short it does work for the cheap price, but with no real frills. I only play games and it seems to work fine for that.
Cons: The saying "you get what you pay for" really applies here.
Had to juggle slots like some of the other people to get the sound clear, never had to do that before.
I would have given it a "3 egg" rating, but driver support seems to have died off for this card a little too soon. Maybe a Realtek driver would work?
Other Thoughts: It's a dead card to Creative, you should buy something else.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: You can pack lots of memory on this dual socket board (256gb). Pretty good SATA and SAS support. SSD's work fine too, but you can't get the Intel SSD Toolbox to work with the C602 chipset. At least the TRIM command is passed on to the drive.
Plenty of fan connectors,and a nice board layout overall. too.
Cons: First board had a surface mount cap sitting in the bag. Looked like it fell off one of the pads due to a cold solder joint (bad oven profile Asrock?). Had to get a replacement.
Overclocking options are just not happening here, but you buy this for its stability right?
USB 2.0 only on board is a drag.
Other Thoughts: I'd buy another given the choice.READ FULL REVIEW
