I've recently run into an issue with my Xonar DX. Recently when I've been folding, I hear a loud whine coming from the speakers. It only happens when the speakers are plugged into the Xonar DX and stops when unplugged or moved to the onboard audio. During WoW, I play with the sound unchecked. I can hear a low buzzing sound when not in loading screens. Every time a loading screen pops up it goes away, but as soon as I'm back in the game it reappears. I also believe the volume is low as I can turn my speakers all the way up and not get more than a comfortable audio level (odd). When the Xonar software is installed, I get an occasional message about the power being unplugged even though the power is plugged in. I've tried moving it to a different slot on the motherboard and checking connections and nothing seems to fix the issue. I really can't think of what happened to cause this. I do have an SLI setup and recently I recovered a Raid 0 array (not my main drive) and had to re-seat one of my GTX 570s due to it causing graphical errors. Any help outside of replacing the card would be helpful at this point. I have an Cosair AX850 for the power supply and other than fans cannot hear any other sources of noise.
