    What does overclocking have to do with C1E? There's no problem with 4GHz and beyond even with C1E, EIST and alike.

    It makes it easier sometimes, yes. But those functions definitely aren't any problem at all even with high overclocks. The never have been. You get to like them very fast when you have to pay the power bill yourself ;)

    Reason why people turn them off, because they dont like it lowering the clocks while being idle and raise back up when your doing something. i dont use that option as I dont like it messing with my clocks .

    @gen: Maybe, but it's just a meanless power consumption to be honest. It isn't even any slower when you use these things.
    You don't disable your 2D/3D mode, right? Same thing, different color.

    @nam: No stress test has any problem with clock switching. Trust me ;) I've been using C&Q or EIST with things like Prime or OCCT for at least 5 years. If it's not stable with these things on, it's a bad suited mainboard or a PSU that can't handle it, maybe just messed up settings.

    2D/3D that is complete different subject altogether, the 200 series are designed for this :3eyes:

    Also Nice re-edit this was not what i read before:thumbup: .. look at my stig mate ..

    also ask your self why umeng2002 switched C1E halt state feature off and all was well, i will leave umeng2002 in your hands to explane Why :smoke:.. while your at it look at his stig .. As were are complete off topic.

    It's nowhere different as the CPU and the board is designed around the feature too.
    If there's this special noise between different load cycles there's a flaw in the motherboard or PSU design. Sometimes it's even only a temperature problem as hot VRMs tend to "twitter" a lot more.
    It's the same noise that so many 200 series owners complain about in high-fps situations.

    There are many things that can mess up an experience, especially when it comes to video and audio. The same reason that made you buy an audio card with "better" components should make you want to have the same level of quality when you get a mainboard or a PSU.

    Don't get excited too soon.

    From the Auzentech Website:
    As you can see, no word of X-Fi in there.

    For some reasong ive using his drivers and i encountered that the speakers started to make a steady sound like when you are trying to connect a mic, which i dont have.

    Maybe a reinstall will fix it.

    Interesting, wonder why they wouldn't add that to the summary.

    ..Been testing as I always seem to be doing and was wondering:

    Has anybody else here tried out any of the discrete opamps with the Prelude 7.1?
