Hexus.net have posted up a review of the SoundBlaster Live! 5.1 Platinum. Heres a Snip:
"The Creative Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 Platinum (what a mouthful! is creative's current top of the line sound card. It's UK retail is £152 from the creative European home page. Its main competitor at the moment is the newly released Hercules gaming theatre XP, which is also a 5.1 card."
They have also written a guide for you all entitled 'Streamlining your cables', which explores the methods you can use to tidy up your cables, including putting them through a hosepipe! Snip:
"It is best NOT to try to cut it in a straight line............I tried both straight and slightly off straight, and it holds shape better if its a bit wonky........which is handy! OK, so then you decide which cable needs help. PSU? RIBBON? Your call, but make sure of the following: If you washed it (which of course you did because you want the best for your PC don't you?), MAKE SURE IT'S DRY! DOH! Also, make sure it is not the RE-INFORCED WITH WIRE TYPE! The ones with a string-like thread is cool, BUT NOT METAL!"
