Yep, got the Extreme Music one today.. It blows my onboard sound away. :D

Do you know if I can buy the front panel and what not off ebay and it would work with this card? It has all the connectors on the card.

Oh yeah, mine also has a heatsink on it. I can't seem to find a pic of one with a heatsink? Do I have like a new version or what?

I'm positive the XTREMEMUSIC and Platinum are EXACTLY the same, the Platinum just has that front drivebay thing and the remote.

So yeah...I think it should work.

And I'm glad not only that you got one, but that you're so pleased with it...it's such a fantastic piece of hardware. :)

Yep, I love it. I can hear sounds i've never heard before. :D

Does yours have a heatsink?

Nope, not that I'm aware of.

well wtf... mine has a purdy black one on it.

Hmmmm....that's weird. Meh, whatever.

What do you think of that Crystallizer? :D I love it so much!

I love the crystalizer... I have it set to the middle...

Oh, did a little google search, the new revisions apparently have a heatsink. While some of the older ones do and dont.

Huh...that's weird. I wonder if it was really that necessary? Meh. I'll be worried when this thing stops sounding more amazing than the most amazing sound you've ever heard.

I think the heatsink helps, mine gets pretty warm. What settings are you using on yours?
