ASUS Xonar DS 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface Audio Card

5 out of 5 eggs I'll Never Use On-board Again! 12/11/2013

This review is from: ASUS Xonar DS 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface Audio Card

Pros: I thought my on-board audio sounded quite good with my decent sound system. Never again will I use on-board audio. This sound card improves the quality of songs drastically. Bass is tighter, punchier, and the songs themselves have better mid's, and high's. I can't begin to explain how much better the bass response is. Using on-board the bass was sloppy, but now it's amazing!

Cons: The only one I've found is when I switch songs in iTunes (while playing one already) there is a catch from the last sound of the last song moving to the next. It's hard to explain, but a little annoying. Nothing a driver update can't fix.

Other Thoughts: For anyone wondering: I'm using Windows 8.1, and to install this card I installed the card itself, then installed the downloaded drivers from ASUS' website. After this there was no sound. I then disabled the other audio sources on my computer, and sound came through perfect.

I haven't tried plugging my headphones into the front panel to see if it recognizes the source, or to see what the quality is like.

I've also heard some people having bad luck, and the card dying in a relatively short period of time. Let's hope this doesn't happen to me.

5 out of 5 eggs Aesthetically Pleasing! 12/06/2013

This review is from: NZXT CB-LED20-BU Sleeved LED Kit - Blue, 2 m

Pros: Braided cable, brightness levels, brightness of the LED's, length of cable,

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have this LED kit installed in my Define R4 using the auxiliary expansion slot. Makes using the switches, and the overall look of the LED's in my case great. This is a great accent to highlight the components in your case.

Microsoft Windows 8 64-bit (Full Version)

5 out of 5 eggs Different, but similar 09/21/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 64-bit (Full Version)

Pros: It's a fast OS, a bit quicker than Windows 7. Boot up times on an SSD are 10-15 seconds.

Cons: None. If you don't like change, it may take awhile to get used to. The biggest change is the lack of a start button. I use Classic Shell for a replacement and it works great.

Other Thoughts: I use this OS for both a touch screen device and my desktop. For both devices I prefer to use the Windows 7 because of it's familiarity and ability to multitask. You can avoid the metro ui and use this just like Windows 7.
