Asus Xonar Xense - strange clicking noise

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Whenever I boot up, shut down, or change the output type (headphone, speakers) I'll get this strange clicking noise from my Asus Xonar Xense.

The card is fully functional, but this has been going on for months and I just want to get it taken care of.

I tried a different molex plug, nothing.

I tried the card in a different slot, nothing.

Here's what it sounds like (sound is near the end of video).



Any ideas?

That is normal. Those are the sound of relays clicking into place and are actually for the protection of your audio equipment to prevent random spikes of voltage.

My Xonar D1 and Essence STX both do this and I find it to be a comforting feature knowing that none of my stuff is going to blow up because I turned on the computer. The receiver I have at home has relays as well that make the same noise.

Made an account to say thanks! smile.gif
I thought it was something like a relay, as it only happened during driver installation/plugging in devices.
