High pitched noise through headset, stops when I move mouse - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Thread Starter 
Well.. the noise came back. I've switched to onboard audio for now.
If it comes back now that I'm using the onboard audio, then what could the culprit be?

Did the sound card worked in another mobo properly with the same PSU ?
If yes then maybe there is something phishy with the new mobo.
Maybe the slot voltage is "dirty". Or maybe the video card is to close to the video card.
Stay with the onboard for some time and see if the problem arrives after some days of usage.

Gigabyte has better sound quality for discrete cards (if they feature that 2 copper OZ) .I guess the "bigger" ground traces help.

That's about all that gigabyte has better from my experience.
Don't mean to outright insult the company if it's the favorite of anyone, but I've had nothing but problems with gigabyte.

Don t worry , i simply don t care to much anymore about the vendors of the mobos ,but i try to avoid some for warranty issues.

From what i ve seen with my boards (MSI K9A2 Platinum ,MSI 790XT-G45 and Gigabyte 770-UD3) the X-Fi Xtreme Music sounds best on the gigabyte thing for some reason .Anyway the K9A2 Platinum has the issue you are talking about while using the on-board sound but with Corsair PSU-s only.Thats what made me reply you.

Unfortunately ,you may need to spend some money again ,if the onboard is not what you want ,either for another PSU ,either for another mobo ,either for a better sound card with proper voltage filtering.

If you manage to solve the issue without needing to spend more money ,don t forget to post feedback for others to know what to do.

Is there any problem with just running with the noise? I don't mind it if it's not a sign of the death of components from a bad motherboard.

EDIT: Swapped out PSU from my corsair 650tx to a silverstone op650 and the noise is still present. What could this mean?

EDIT2: Something of note, possibly. It seems that disabling LLC, C1E, and CnQ reduces the sound by quite a large amount. It's still there I think (I can't really tell because of severe ear damage that I got as a child from repeated ear infections, so I almost always have constant ringing in my ears), but it's much quieter.

its a ground loop.

make sure your hdd are in tight. Then go thru your case looking for points where there maybe a weak ground. Check the mount posts. If your pc got devices connected to it using a different plug plug them into the same wall plug.
Try and test another wall plug and see if its the same

Would the sound from a ground loop go away while the mouse is moving?

Also, unless there is dirty power coming from inside the case (@dromihetes), I don't see where it would be coming from. I have a 'line conditioning' UPS, with active PFC and lots of "cleaning up" or "power scrubber" features.
I've tried without this UPS and the problem persists.

Also, sorry for double post, but do you mind telling me how to check for weak grounds? I've only got experience building PCs, never had to troubleshoot them before.

Your issue seems to be caused by a bad PCB design of your motherboard ,from what you describe.
Grounding is not properly made.
While the ground loops may not affect the proper working of the motherboard itself the analog audio stuff has some requirements regarding such.
As the PSU swap doesn t solve the issue ,either use the onboard sound ,that you say it s ok ,either change the motherboard.
