Hey everyone.

A while back I bought my sig case. It was cheap, had decent cable management options and enough room for aftermarket coolers. These are all plus sides of the case. There is only one down side that this case has and that is its front panel. The panel has 2 usb ports, a firewire port, a microphone port and a headphone port.

Once I assembled my computer into the new casing I tried out the front panel, to see if it all worked. And then it hit me... I plugged in my headphone into the headphone port and heard crackling and hissing. Horrible! I could hear my mouse move around, it was as if a person was scraping his or her finger nails on a chalkboard. Yes THAT horrible.

Now.. I searched the internet for a solution other then tin foiling the wires running from the sound card to the front panel. After reading some about the case being conductive I decided to take off the front of my case to see how the panel was mounted.

As I snapped off the front of the case I saw that the panel was mounted with 2 metal screws. I unscrewed them and checked to see if the hiss was still there. And the hissing was gone! Wonderful. Now how to mount it so the hissing stays away. This is the result. It doesn't look THAT horrible, I could resize the tape so you cannot see it at all, if I cared enough.
