Problems with the Siberia v2

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

So recently I decided to purchase the Siberia v2. Stop. I know that many of you will have just started typing something like "Gaming Headsets are a gimmick, get a "insert audiophile headset here" + Zalman Clip-on Mic". Unfortunately, that's not really an option for me, as I make YouTube and need a good quality mic, not Zalman trash.

Anyway, with that addressed, here is the problem. I bought the Siberia and a Xonar DG to go with it. For some reason, I was unable to get the sound card to slot into the PCI properly whilst having the bracket on. No bracket = Fits fine. But that's not the only problem, for some reason the headset produces a high buzzing sound when I open certain applications. I know that this is the sound card and not the headset.

I have 2 questions. First of all, have any of you got the Xonar DG to slot in correctly with a Zalman Z9 and Gigabyte Z68AP-D3?

Secondly, I wanted to ask if this sound card would work with the Siberia.

My Computer Specs:

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K @ 4.5Ghz
CPU Cooler: Xigmatek Loki SDS963
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z68AP-D3
Memory: 4.0GB Corsair DDR3 1600mhz XMS3 (2x 2GB)
Hard Drives: 500GB S-ATAIII 6.0Gb/s
Optical Drive: 22x DVD±RW DL S-ATA
Graphics card: EVGA GeForce GTX 550ti
Case: Zalman Z9 Plus
PSU: 700W Xigmatek
SSD: Samsung 830 SSD 128gb

Thanks, Chris

The buzzing is probably electrical noise. Not really anything you can do about this aside from getting a sound card that's electrically isolated from the rest of the PC (unless this is a result of it not being inserted into the mobo properly which is highly probable). As to why it doesn't fit with the bracket, I honestly don't have a clue.. questionmark.gif
