    Creative SB Z/HD558

    Update in case anyone else has this problem: I *think* I was actually able to fix it after putting it in a PCI-E x8 slot and setting it on 24 bit, 48000 Hz in the Advanced tab of the Speaker Properties. I had it higher after switching the PCI-E slot, but I still got weird popping noises and...

    Creative SB Z/HD558

    It's just random. Seems to mostly happen when something new loads, IE CS:GO. I switched the PCI-E slot that I had it in and the random problems seemed to stop, but I still noticed I got the left/right switch. That's fixable by changing the config to stereo and back to headphones, but that's a...

    Creative SB Z/HD558

    A sigh update: I noticed what appears to be a common problem with this card, where after a bit the sound will reverse/bass will play louder in the right ear/things just sound wonky in general. Googling around a bit I haven't really found a solution, but it appears it's definitely not exclusive...

    Creative SB Z/HD558

    Yeah, I'm a 100% headphone user on my desktop and I also read that as well, although not everyone agreed on it. I'm using the mic that comes with it and it's surprisingly good, better than the Zalman clip on I think. If you have any tips or settings you found helped the sound a lot, let me...

    Creative SB Z/HD558

    I ended up going and grabbing one from MC last night on the way home. Really happy with it so far. Strikes me as odd that people say there isn't a difference between onboard and a dedicated card. The difference was clear to me right away, and I should probably do some more tweaking. Coming...

    Creative SB Z/HD558

    Hello, I've been doing some "research" on upping my sound game on my PC. I currently have a set of HD558s using onboard sound. From what I've read, something like the Creative SB Z sounds like it would be good for someone who is not an audio junkie, but still wants decent quality sound. A few...

    5820K showing 4 cores

    Updated the BIOS and still have the issue. The OS was going to be my next question. I just took this SSD from my old machine with an i5 and plopped it in here. No good?

    5820K showing 4 cores

    Didn't even know there was an option to select the number of cores used in the BIOS. It was set to auto, but I manually set it to 6 and it still shows 4 in Windows. I probably don't have the latest BIOS. I actually had to exchange this same motherboard because the first time I got it I tried to...

    5820K showing 4 cores

    Hello, I bought a 5820K a few months ago. I'm not a huge hardware guy, so I just throw things in and if it works I'm happy. But looking at it more closely now, it's only reporting it has 4 cores instead of 6 in Windows as well as CPU-Z. Did I get a "bad" CPU or something? It's reporting...

    Whos ready for the iPhone Video?

    Furious is a pretty harsh word. Unimpressed would be more accurate.

    Pretty sure they upgraded here in Chicago already.

    Whos ready for the iPhone Video?

    No way. There would be a ridiculous uproar if they did, and it would be changed immediately anyways.

    Whos ready for the iPhone Video?

    The new iPhone really isn't that impressive. I'll be sticking with my 3G for a while I think.

    I just got the 3G, so probably not, unless it offers something I really need.

    Got my new phone but there is a problem

    Yeah, if you are on a GSM carrier just swap out the SIM cards. CDMA, just give them a call. Sprint even lets you do it on the website I believe.

    Do I have to pay $45 for a Data Plan???

    I don't use WinMo, but I'm pretty sure you can sync wired without a data plan. AT&T is just trying to get more money from you.

    Smartphone Worth it in Rural Area?

    Eh, it depends how much you would use it. Personally I "can't" live without a smartphone at the moment. I ride the train ~2 hours a day to and from work or wherever else I go. If you drive to work, and use a computer at both home/work, maybe it's not for you. Smartphones are expensive as well, a...

    G1 or Curve 8900. Other than that you're pretty much shooting yourself in the foot.

    Question about using aftermarket phone on US Cellular

    Well, LTE is supposed to use SIM cards, and they're going to be rolling that out next week. I tried to find you an article on it, but all I got was articles and forum posts saying that it looks like Verizon is going to try to find away around that. Stuff like making companies special build...

    Question about using aftermarket phone on US Cellular

    If I'm not mistaken, the deal with Verizon buying USC has gone through. I'd call and see what you can swing. In general though, CDMA carriers don't let phones from other networks connect to their networks. No if, ands, or buts.
