CREATIVE Sound Blaster Z SE Gaming integrated sound card


The Sound Blaster Z SE integrated sound card from CREATIVE is an integrated sound card that plugs into a PCI-e x1 slot. The card uses the Sound Blaster Command driver which allows for simple configuration and advanced options. This is a mid-range model that is very efficient for bass shakers, especially if you want to use the analog outputs (up to 8 bass shakers). It uses the Sound Core3D chipset.


The sound card is mounted on a PCI-e x1 slot. Moreover, if you only have PCI-e x16 slots (those where graphics cards are plugged in), no worries, the card can be mounted on them.

Software configuration

The Sound Blaster Command driver can be downloaded from the manufacturer’s website. After the installation it will probably offer you an update. The driver allows to test the sound outputs. No other settings are necessary.

If you want to use this card to power the Logitech Z906, you can perfectly use the optical output, and set the encoding to DTS (better quality than Dolby).


The Sound Blaster Z SE is a great solution if you want a quality setup with a proper software interface! If you don’t have any free PCI-e slots, you can check this section to discover all our solutions!

I've been passionate about cars since I was a kid! I learned the multiple variations of the Skyline R34 through the Gran Tursimo series, until I discovered GTR2 at the wheel of a keyboard. A few years later, I plunged back into Sim Racing with a G27 which made me enter the DIY world. Always looking for an immersion out of reach in reality, I develop projects that I take care to make accessible to any 3D printer owner!
