Asus Xonar DG for 5.1 speakers

shijilt

Journeyman
I have bought F&D f700UF for my PC (It is ok for me , as no other 5.1 speakers - under 10K have delivery in my area).
My sound card audio is - VIA
its drivers are not working in Windows 10 64
sound is there , but in audio settings only 2 channel / 4 channel options are there.
MB supports 5.1 but it is the driver issue.
If I disable front panel audio there is 5.1 option.

I am thinking of buying "Asus Xonar DG" for my PC , I will have to use the PCI (white / old) slot, PCI E is occupied my graphics card.

Q1. There will be very small gap between graphics card fan and sound card , is it ok ?
Q2. is Asus Xonar DG ok for 5.1 speakers ?
Q3. or should I just disable front panel audio and use the onboard 5.1 ?

Q3. or should I just disable front panel audio and use the onboard 5.1 ?

I just installed the "uni drivers", works well, didn't have any issue.
Running on windows 10 64
Haven't tested the 5.1 speaker quality , buy in headset its good.
Onboard sound was more like flat , no treble , xonar seems to boost treble and give more controlled bass.
I have to wait until Sunday to test the 5.1 speakers. ..
