    Default ASUS Essence STX II and Essence STX II 7.1 Hi-Fi-Grade Sound Launches

    While not your typical gaming fodder, we know PC enthusiasts have super-surround display setups, several graphics cards, a rocking sound card, cans or speakers (to complete the gaming experience) and probably more disk space than your average Google data-barge (aaaand we don’t want to know what that’s for). So, we figured the latest Essence STX II and STX II 7.1 PCI-Express sound cards could be ready for your Rampage.

    For that ASUS ROG link in Xelosia's starting post, Norton declares "Web Attack: Malicious SWF Download 8 - an intrusion attempt by klotzas.info was blocked". Severity HIGH, Blocked, No Action Required.

    Google search resulted in no hits, so no idea as to what it does. Might want to deactivate or remove the link for safety's sake?

    I highly doubt that it is something from the ROG website. That is the official website put up by ASUS. I cant find any references to it even on the Norton website. It could just be Norton going insane, it happens a lot lol

    Heh, just because something is an official web site does not mean it can't be hacked - that lesson was learned long ago.

    I've never had Norton spaz out on me, but who knows. I was in this thread, about to post a reply, but decided to read over what was at that link first, so clicked on it ... and Norton immediately complained. <shrug>

    As for the S/PDIF(1 x Optical / Coaxial combo) on the STX ... my optical-out connects to a Yamaha YSP-1 Digital Sound Projector for big screen gaming with surround audio. Works fine and dandy. The analog-outs drive a pair of B&W Matrix 801 Series 2 for audiophile stereo gaming. Wonderful audio. Plus an Audio Technica ATH-AD700 into the headphone jack for late night gaming when noise would otherwise have neighbors in an uproar.

    So that new STX II will definitely be a purchase if my STX ever craps out on me.

    Odd. I am having no issues with the site and I am running 2 antivirus apps. Wonder wth norton is seeing that no one else is.

Plus an Audio Technica ATH-AD700 into the headphone jack for late night gaming when noise would otherwise have neighbors in an uproar.

    So that new STX II will definitely be a purchase if my STX ever craps out on me.

    Sounds like an awesome setup bro. I need to pick my game up to drive my wife nuts when im gaming lol

    Perhaps TCC is correct about Norton simply freaking out this time. Don't know. But have no intention of double-checking by going back to the link and trying again!

    But if someone else with Norton wants to go there to confirm, well, that'd be fine by me. <laugh>

    This definitely looks like a great product by the way, Asus always has nice design.

    Also, about the virus thing, it could definitely be true. I wont be going through the link unless I have to lol but I know Norton doesn't like off-site links, which is understandable. I always prefer to go to sites through a direct connection instead of through a link.
