The internal speaker is actually not to horrible either if you don’t have space to use external speakers. I don’t think sounr riser itself should affect this though.


When trying to install the sound blaster drivers, the installation insisted on trying to detect the card. After working on this for the past few months I’m half tempted to give up and buy a soundblaster. It showed as having interrupt issues, which I found from another forum that it may be a conflict from the parallel port.

I did some light testing for you and running topbench and speedsys utilities seem to indicated turning off all the cpu cache brings it down to a speed a little faster then an amd HP is compiling your results. If your using the onboard sound these are really nice to have as it eliminates the need for extra external PC speakers. Unless I’ve missed something and the AD chip can emulate this, You cant be Soundblaster compatiable.

I was planning to use them for a media PC or something similar.

I’ll keep working on it and post if I get anything else to work. Here you can see the tab, one of which is on both sides of the case. This machine came in a few forms such as tower, desktop and the small form factor as well as sported a few factory CPU and video option configurations.

My card is a CT which is a 5.
