yeah higher FPS means higher transistor cycling meaning louder coil whine.

get an impedance adapter to raise your headphones impedance to get rid of it fully

Thanks for the reply! I've got an ATH M50 headphones with 38ohm impedance. Could you please recommend or link a suitable impedance adapter I could try? I'm not very familiar with them.

EDIT: I'm in Australia and tried looking on eBay but didn't have much luck.

Has anyone tried the GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 - F8q BIOS?
http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte/28441-gigabyte-latest-beta-bios.html

Will try this when I get home and report.

If anyone could recommend a impedance adapter I could purchase in Australia that would be great.

***EDIT AND SUMMARY***
Specs:
- Win 10 Pro x64
- Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7 motherboard
- Seasonic 750W PSU
- MSI 1070
- NZXT S340
- ATH-M50 headphones (38ohm impedance)
- Logitech 5.1 speakers

With Speakers:
No issues with F7 or F8p bios with either PAX or regular drivers, have not tested F8q

With Headphones:
Static when in game with F7, F8p with either PAX or regular drivers, have not tested F8q
Turning on vsync helped slightly, changing audio quality to 16bit had negligible effect
Turning off C states and EIST had no effect
Switching between 2.5x and 6x gain switch had no effect
Front and rear jack has same static issue
Have tried fresh install of W10 Pro with default BIOS and PAX drivers, still had static

Creative Control Panel issues
Switching between Speakers and Headphones - the audio still outputs on speakers even though Headphones is selected, I have to manually turn off my speakers

Thanks Bojamijams. I've ordered one and should be here in a couple of weeks.

Hi guys, still having the same problems with sound and mic issues, but it does seem to stay away when installing only the PAX driver without the Creative software.. My question, is there any software that I can use other than the Creative to keep my mic working?
In other words, my Neewer Nw-700 mic has no software..
thanks

Since many video cards have built in audio, there could be some sort of weird conflict going on. This is something I hadn't thought of and didn't see mentioned in this thread.

I have experienced this same issue with my GA-Z170X-Gaming G1. It happened a few times when I first built my computer. It eventually resolved with re installation or updates of drivers, but I was never sure exactly what caused it or fixed it. I hadn't had the issue at all for over 6 months. Yesterday, I updated my system with the latest Nvidia drivers and the audio issue returned. That lends me to think there is possible some interaction with the video and audio drivers. I did reinstall a "clean" nvidia driver without the HD audio component, but the distortion/feedback has happened at least once since. It hasn't happened in 24 hours since then, so I'm waiting for it to happen again. My next step will be to see if switching from the rear to front panel headphone output resolves the issue. I am also using the main output for my speakers and switch between them as needed.

Incidentally, when it happened, I tried a number of things to resolve it using the Creative control panel. I tried turning on and off features, switching modes, etc. Switching modes from 5.1 to 2.1 to headphones worked once, but did not work other times and I eventually had to reboot to resolve it.

Just out of curiosity, is this issue affecting people with AMD video drivers as well as nVidia?

I was using an Asus GTX 970 OC card and had the issue ALL the time. I have now a MSI 1070 Gaming X and have not had the issue. Not sure if its the PAX driver or the card... I also have very little buzzing with the sound card during load with this card.

I have the same 1070 card and that video driver update is the first time it's happened with it. I haven't had it happen since my last post, though.

I kinda have a similar issue... but with Windows 7 64bit and an older motherboard - GIGABYTE G1 Sniper Z87

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HzYgToqVCE

This guy recorded it in the video stated above.


I don't know if I should change this motherboard or to buy a new sound card. I think buying a new Z87 now is kinda waste since it's an older generation. I was thinking of Sound Blaster Z since it also has Scout Mode which I like so much.
