    Rampage V Edition 10 - Supreme FX Front Panel

    What does the front panel do for you? It looks like it provides volume control, an headphone / mic jacks. While taking up 2 USB ports and a power connector?

    It is extremely rare I use headphones so I think having two more USB ports would be more beneficial. Just figured I would check first though.

    OK. I just wanted to make sure I had the details right. Seems weird they would waste two USB ports on this.

    If you're not a fan of headphones, you can leave out the SupremeFX Hi-Fi USB DAC/AMP. But hardcore audiophiles would be more than happy with the DAC.

    I figured hardcore audiophiles would prefer a proper speaker setup. I prefer my Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 5.1 over headphones.

    You don't enjoy music, games or movies at nightly hours? (in case you have neighbors, LOL) I also love my 3way wooden speakers but... there's a time for everything!

    I have the house to myself at present. The PC is in the basement and I would go deaf if I played it loud enough to annoy the neighbors

    I think people who use dedicate sound cards should keep SupremeFX Hi-Fi in box and onboard sound disabled in BIOS.
    Even if they use headphones better to use sound card. I never use headphones.
    That's improvement for people who use always onboard sound and want to use headphones and microphone with SupremeFX, she offer OK sound.
    But again for some serious work you need at least 100-150$ sound card and some normal microphone and headphones.
    I think that X99 boards where people anyway need graphic card dedicate and can't use Internal and onboard sound should buy and better sound card.
    With small little boards people with smaller budget could use Internal GPU and onboard sound. It's nice because ASUS install SupremeFX and on cheaper
    motherboards as Z170 Gaming series. Using onboard sound with 500$ worth CPU and 700$ worth GPU is bad.

    Just throwing in my two cents, I love the sound coming from the SupremeFX, the front panel is very useful as well (USB) I play Arma 3 a MILSIM and the soundFX is awesome, however, there is still compatibility issue where some games do not recognise it, so often I have to switch back to the REALTEK sound.

    I wish I can go full SupremeFX but until the compatibility issue is resolved, I am running both SupremeFX and the REALTEK sound.

    And there is my unanswered question: is it possible to run the HiFi box without Realtek sound or drivers installed? They may be interrelated! On the Asus site there are only "Realtek drivers" (Sonic studio version) and on the ROG pendrive we have Realtek drivers and SupremeFX Hifi drivers-manual install).
