Have you tried a different set of speakers? Have you tried plugging into the front panel connections (if you have one)?

I had a similar problem, but figured it out after swapping the speakers around. They were an older pair and the wiring was getting worn so it was pretty easy to figure out.

I'm having the same problem. I have the same MB + 2600k + Asus Radeon 6970 dcii and I'm using onboard sound (headphones on backpanel).

Apparently it's the graphics card (or something else graphics related) causing some noise/interference. It's quiet when I'm not doing anything and some faint noise when moving the mouse.. When I move entire windows on the screen the sound gets louder and when I start a game or something else graphics-intensive, the sound gets very loud. All sorts of buzzing etc random noise.

I have tried driver updates, tried moving cables etc so that they would not pick up any interference etc but no joy.

Any ideas anyone?

If this were a record player I would say it's a ground loop problem.

You two using the same PSU? Is it a 2 prong socket or a 3 prong with earth?

I was going to ask about this actually.
When I put my system together There was no earth to the case that I could find.
Is this normal?

[edit]
Did a little looking and this article has some tips on fixing ground loop noise.
