post #221 of 232
So i tested a new board, but i got the same effects as before. I know bought a DAC from Fillio and the sound is great! Will also try the Sound Blaster Z from Creative today.

Wow that sucks! I don't know why Gigabyte makes the noise floor so high on these. I had to use a high ohm headphone to get rid of my noise although I never had an issue with moving the mouse and noise. It was only during gaming figured it was video card 12v draw causing it.

You can also purchase an inline headphone resistor to basically make your headphones higher ohm.

I tested the Sound Blaster Z. There was no hissing or noise when i connected my Headphones directly to the card. But the Front Panel does it always. This is generally an isolation issue with the Front Panels i think. As said my old board had no such issues (or maybe the cable was positioned better)?

Well i think i will send the Sound Blaster Z back and will stay with the Fillio. The Sound is just amazing! The only Problem is that i don't have the effects.

Front panel audio will always have noise as you have bare wires going through your computer from inside the soundcard to the front of the case. It acts like an antenna for all that interference

You'd need special shielded cables, or just run an extension from the back of the card

I got news for you guys,

I contacted the Gigabyte Support and they said that my Power Supply is old (ATX 2.2). For testing i purchased the be quiet! Dark Power Pro 11 650W (ATX 2.4) and there is no more szzz-noise coming from the back or front-panel when i move the mouse. Still there is some "base-noise" from the front-panel but I think this is due to the shielding of the front-cable. Back-Panels are all now okay!

The issue OP laid out with random audio distortion happening is something I've experienced across 2 completely different PCs.

PC 1:

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-X48-DS4

Soundcard: xfi xtremegamer

OS: Windows 7 x64

Driver Release: latest

Speaker Configuration and output: 5.1 Analog

Speakers: Logitech Z5500



PC 2:

Motherboard: ASrock Fatality z87 killer

Soundcard: xfi titanium HD

OS: Windows 8.1 x64

Driver Release: latest

Speaker Configuration and output:

Speakers: doesn't matter



I contacted creative support and they said they had no idea what causes it. It's a driver issue. Switching the sample rate/bit depth resets it.

Before 2-3 years I had the same problem with my mobo g1 sniper z87 (link). I asked in other forums too, but no avail. It's weird that distortion occurs only when played bf, call of duty 4 and black ops 2. But I not play these games from more than 2 years and ... since then have 0 problems with audio, but I play only POE and GTA 5 last 2 years and never heard any distrtion.

My fix - do not play fps games laughingsmiley.gif

edit: This is my last gigabyte mobo. They are know about this problem, but still use this *****y chip on their boards. Maybe they get them for free?

Hey guys,

This thread is very old so apologies if this is no longer relevant, however after writing a bad review on Newegg for this mobo for these reasons and contacting Gigabyte customer support at their request, their technical department had NO help to offer, just a laundry list of things (senseless questions-- i.e. "what kind of power supply are you using?")...

...in other words, they threw the standardized response at me.

My solution,

Don't buy gigabyte products. In case you guys didn't know, their qc is very sketchy.

Best.

Although their lack of willingness to fix this (or rather, not adequate enough willingness) is the telling reason not to buy Gigabyte.

Ultimately this issue is with Creative hardware/software and they need to step it up and they are the hardware/software vendor that should be avoided. I think Gigabyte boards with Realtek solutions are the way to go if you want onboard, its just a shame that they're not on the high end motherboards
