What is the make and model of the Asus motherboard?

I would assume an Asus Xonar DG/DGXU3 ($28-$40) would offer just as good audio features as the Siberia V2 cable (USB sound card?)

Maximus VI Impact, came a discrete sound card I think!

Looks like the Maximus VI Impact comes with fairly decent on-board audio, so I'm guessing the Siberia V2 would not make a noticeable improvement.

The on-board audio hardware might even be considered better then the Siberia V2, but I'm just making my best "guess", but I'm fairly sure the on-board is better.

So delete any Siberia software and just plug the ATH-M50X straight into the motherboard's on-board audio.

Might also make sure your updated to the motherboard's latest audio software.
