I've got this SoundBlaster Live for Free :)

Brak opisu.

 

I think it's one of my most lucky pick-ups.

SoundBlaster Live CT4830 that I have picked up locally.

I think it gonna go well in my PC but here is the question, is there any drivers / fan or modded drivers for it? [WINDOWS 10]

Can you give me a download link below?

I'm gonna use it in my second rig, because my actual motherboard don't have PCI slot.

That’s funny, I just posted the same model card for free locally a few days ago. Not sure about drivers but the slot is PCI, not PCIe, so keep that in mind. 
 

Edit: And someone is going to pick up the card later today, so I’m not who you got the card from.

It's very EOL'd but the XP drivers may still work

Creative Worldwide Support - Sound Blaster Live!

If not, registry tweaks could be made to newer drivers to recognize and support the card.
