I was reading review of the ASUS P5E3 on the anandtech website. On the picture of the mobo it self I noticed a couple of odd connectors on the back, (see image). What is it, and what are they used for?



Thanks

Edit: Marked the connectors I'm talking about with a red cirkle. Look closely, it's a bit faint.

Well... I don't know much about the sound card they're including on this board, so it could be better, but I do know that Creative doesn't license their EAX technology so if you like playing games with EAX sound effects, then you better stick with the Audigy 4. At most the on board sound card supports EAX 2.0, but the Audigy 4 supports EAX 4.0 HD. So yeah, your choice.
