Wierd Humming/Buzzing Noises

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I recently built my first computer (3 Pronged Power Cord) consisting of the Intel I7-2600K Processor, the 570GTX Nvidia, an Asus P8Z68-V PRO motherboard, a HT-Omega Claro Plus Sound Card, an ABS Majesty series MJ1100-M 1100W Power supply (Gold Standard) all encompassed in a HAF 932 case. Now I have this computer hooked up to an AV Receiver (Marantz SR7005, 2 pronged power cord) via HDMI and Optical and Coaxial is possible which is hooked up to a JVC Projector (RS60).

As I boot up my computer and it comes to my desktop there is a constant humming noise and buzz at all times. I have noticed that things like opening my computer change the noise for a few seconds and that scrolling with my mouse also alters the noise. So far I have tried taking out my sound card out, different hdmi cables as well as audio cables, moving my video card to another slot, plugging my receiver and comp into the same outlet on the wall and none of this has fixed the issue at hand. The only change that has happened is that my computer and receiver were originally hooked up to a power surge box , but it still emitted the same noises. Now I have my computer hooked up directly to the wall and the humming and buzzing is quieter than before but it can still be heard.

At this point I am considering three things that may be the cause of this: My video card may be damaged (anytime an hdmi cable touches the video card anywhere, it doesn't even need to be plugged in the same noise is emitted through the speakers. There is some sort of ground loop problem(not really sure what this really means), or simply my power supply is faulty. I cannot think of any other reason that this is happening. But I am not nearly as experienced as you guys on these forums, so I come to you guys in need. Thank you spending time out of your day's to read this because it is quite lengthy (sorry).

Are you sure its audio related? The chokes used on motherboards and graphics cards can make a whining sound. If you disconnect all audio related devices does the noise remain?

i think its because your Marantz is 2 pronged. Without a ground it can cause something called ground loop http://www.audioholics.com/tweaks/co...m-hum-and-buzz

I've noticed desktop PCs with a ton of crap inside when added into a A/V system loop can add some ground loop noise if there are a large number of analog output devices connected (consoles, disc drives, external amps, etc).

Most A/V devices have a little thingy on the back you can run a spool of copper cable to an a/v receiver to form a common ground...don't think the pc has anything like that.

Your only real solution I think is to pick up another receiver from a local brick and mortar and see if that can eliminate the problem.
