Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card

1 out of 5 eggs SB sent back wrong card on RMA 07/30/2013

This review is from: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card

Pros: When it worked, it supported Vienna.

Cons: Died soon after install - did RMA to SB - SB sent back an Audigy Value which doesn't support Vienna - they refuse to admit their mistake

Other Thoughts: I have tried calling their REAL tech support number twice ( (405) 742-6622 ) and have been told both times that the card I received back on my RMA was the same thing I sent them. They have their information twisted up, since I got an Audigy Value when I sent an Audigy SE 7.1. They've told me they'd call back, but they never have. NO MORE SB FOR ME until they fix this.

AMD A6-5400K Trinity Dual-Core 3.6 GHz Socket FM2 65W AD540KOKHJBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7540D
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Stable, overclocks well, works with Dual Graphics

Cons: The "suggested video pairing" on the side of the box is a bit behind the times. Only 2 cores, despite the A6 name (caveat emptor)

Other Thoughts: The list of suggested paired video cards on the side of the box is behind the times. I bought the suggested card (a 6450 HD) and got successful dual graphics with it. However, I wonder if I could have used a faster graphics card since it reports back as having more powerful 7xxx HD onboard graphics on an A85 Hudson motherboard. On the other hand, my MB's auto overclock feature boosted it from 3.6 GHz to a stable 4.3 GHz with no problems whatsoever so far.

ASUS F2A85-V PRO FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Lots of features to play with, decent onboard graphics (works even better in Dual Graphics mode), supports 32 GB RAM

Cons: Very picky about what RAM will work with it, very tight fit around SATA plugs once installed in cases without removable HD cages

Other Thoughts: Make sure you stick to the Qualified Vendor List for RAM unless you want to deal with problems, even with the MemOK! feature. I pulled four perfectly good 4GB sticks of Brand M* (name withheld to protect the innocent) and tried to use all of them, in various combinations. Would not work. Bought four 8GB sticks of Brand K* and instantly had 32GB of RAM working. The only problem is that the QVL doesn't list a whole ton of 8GB sticks that were available when I bought mine, so CHECK AVAILABILITY if you want to run 32GB.
