  1. Just planning my new build and just noticed that none of the new motherboards have more then 5.1 output (except the deluxe and the rampage) why would this be? I don't want to have to buy a new sound card just to play 7.1

    You can get a cheap 7.1 card if you don't find a suitable motherboard.

    I was about to say because even the MSI X99 SLI board said it supports 7.1 and it is only around $220 bucks.

    Yea literally says 5 channel audio for nearly all of them so im just going to use newegg as a reference.

    Also JC713 putting a audio card in when running 2 graphics cards, (also doubled spaced as I like to keep air flow) once tried putting a card in between them and I got a nasty piecing sound from it
