I've run creative cards on nf mb's for several years now and I've never experienced the noise that so many people complain of yet people clearly have an issue with it. I wonder if it could be a combination of bad caps along with the pci latency if both are just enough out of spec for it to become an issue during certain calls on the bus. Just a thought. Yes I pulled my x-fi out of the box and looked at it and witnessed the cheap caps. I'm not using it because creative hasn't given vista users a driver/utility package that is anything remotely close to what we had in xp. I became so frustrated with the subpar sound that I pulled it and went to using the onboard audio.
