It might be easier to just get some vinyl film wrap and cut it out to the desired size. If you ever want to remove it you can just peel it off. I got this vinyl wrap for my laptop and it works great. Carbon fiber is not the only kind they have on Amazon. Search until you find something that suits what you want to do.

I have an annoying stuttering and crackling problem with audio over SPDIF

Whenever I load a youtube video in high quality or a webpage with a lot of images, the audio crackles and stutters like crazy. Or if I'm installing something and listening to an audio file or youtube video in the meantime.

This is only a problem when I'm doing it over SPDIF. Analog sound works perfectly.

So far I've tried to:
- Change audio quality between 16bit and 24bit with various kHz
- Switching PCI-E slots for the card
- Installing the latest PAX drivers

I have a high-end computer (i7 4790K + 16GB RAM @ 1333mhz + GTX980 along with SSD) so it should be a problem to load these things. And it is only through SPDIF that I am getting this issue.

Anyone able to help? Thanks in advance!

What specific card do you have? What drivers are you using? What operating system?

Did you get the latest drivers from Creative for your card/OS?

Windows 10, latest build (1511)

I've tried to alternate between Creative's own Windows 10 drivers (Aug '15 release), Lenovo's fixed drivers (Sep 15 release), and the latest PAX drivers for W10 (Feb 16 release).

Currently I'm back to the PAX drivers.

I don't know what to say then. And, for the second time.... what card do you have.

Help use help you.

Odds are it's a bad optical cable. The same thing happened to me. The optical cable had a loose connection so the fiber wasn't properly lined up with the port.

Try another cable.

Thanks, but I already tried different optical cables. Both a high end one and a standard retail.

Tried to run the Latency Monitor and maybe the file is are causing high IRS and DPC counts

rsplll64.sys
HDaudbus.sys
wfd01000.sys
USBport.sys

Is that normal for these drivers?

Otherwise maybe it's a voltage thing?
post #4428 of 5648
Mmmm... it does sound like an IRQ issue.

If you can't figure it out, nuke your Windows install and just start over fresh.

Also, you can also remove the card. Show hidden devices in the Device Manager. Uninstall the hidden devices. Then reinstall the card.

What exact sound card do you have?

Do you have any other programs installed that work with sound? I am talking audio splitters/mixers, voice modulators and so on. I had a splitter/mixer program that messed with my sound quality a while back. I would also go in and disable all other playback devices except for the SB card.
You should also check to make sure the optical ports are free of any kind of debris like dust particles or hair.
After you do any or all of this stuff make sure you restart before checking the sound quality.
