I just finished my latest pc build and I'm using the same 5-channel speakers from my old build. However, this time after connecting the orange, green, and black cables to the corresponding motherboard headers, I've noticed a lot of what i think is static build up on the case and in the speakers. This usually happens after I've let the computer sleep for an extended period of time. When i power on again, the speakers pop like when you slap a mic on stage. This didn't happen with the last computer.

Is this bad and how do i stop it?

Thanks

With speakers id say its a bad earth but being a pc, is the correct driver installed and its definatly set to 5.1

It could be a feedback loop like connecting an active speaker to a balanced output and not a pre out

Bad earth?

The correct driver is installed.

How do I verify whether the speakers are set to 5.1?

The speakers are connected to the same ports as the last computer which didn't have this problem.
