Ok thanks for the replies all. First thing, like you say - putting foil between two PCBs with electicity flying through isnt a good idea, so we'll call that plan Z

Ok there is confusion from you guys as to what my problem is so i'll try and detail it again.
- Playing games and listening to sound. All the time during gameplay I can hear something that 'sounds like' a fan (BUT ITS NOT THE FAN). Occasionally during heated battles when I get maybe a half second lag on the whole system so what is moving onscreen suddenly stops for that half second then carries on as normal.
- When this lag happens, obviously the sound lags also, but now the 'fan-like sound' pauses also - but the fan on the graphics card is still turning, so it wasnt the fan causing the noise.
- This noise is directly related to the graphics on my screen yet I hear it through my sound card.
- It really 'sounds' to me as though the graphics card I am using wasnt shielded properly - or wasnt supposed to be this close to the sound card.

Im stuck here guys, but I downloaded the KX drivers this morning before I left for work, once I get home I shall driverclean and install - then swap the front/rear codecs as I have been told to do and hope the better quality chip will reduce the noise.
