Would of liked to seen it fully water cooled including CPU as nobody paying this sort of cash will run it on air.

Because I think it's one of the standout features of my new board, the quality really is superb, through speakers and most importantly headphones, with great 3D sound mixing.
It seems to be the same chip & capacitors..so not even an advantage in that department???
TBH, I think it's as good as a dedicated sound card and you'd only really notice the difference if your pumping the sound through an expensive home cinema setup.

I don't think we've ever docked points for price alone but eually that price has to be earned.
