Hey Everyone, I was planning on buying an ASUS A7V133
motherboard soon. I have an SB Live value that I want to
put in it. I have read some issues using the ASUS A7V133
(or rather any board with the 686B southbridge) with
a sound blaster card. Is this true?? Has anyone had
any issues with this??? Thanks in advance!

I also own an ASUS A7V133 and an SB Live! card (not sure it's a retail) and the only problem I had was a IRQ conflict with the onboard RAID controller.
But when I placed the card into a other PCI slot the problem was solved and I could start my computer normal (otherwise Windows gave a error message) and use the card.

I plan on using the onboard raid controller? I can use both right??? (the raid and the SB Live) I just have to be
careful which PCI slots I use right?

I´ve had major trouble with my ABIT KT7A & SB Live! Player 5.1, but none with Kt7A & SB PCI 128 Vibra.

Just don't put it in PCI slot #2 which is sharing IRQ with RAID controller.

:smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.

Yes you can!

I have 3 cd-rom drives attached to my RAID controller (in ATA 100 mode) and my Soundblaster Live! is in the first PCI slot. It works fine.
