GA-890GPA-UD3H Audio Stuttering Problem Help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Are any of you Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H owners having an audio stuttering problem with the onboard sound or a discreet sound card on this board. I have the newest audio drivers for the onboard sound. I've also tried different speakers with the same result.

I first noticed the stuttering problem when playing YouTube videos. I thought it was from my new router and it needed a firmware update or something. Then I just played some music with iTunes and was getting the same stuttering. So I installed an old Audigy 2 ZS Gamer I had lying around but I still get the problem. I uninstalled the onboard sound driver and disabled it in the BIOS. It's strange, in iTunes, If I leave it alone and don't use the mouse or keyboard it seems fine at first. Then when I start doing something, even just using the scroll bar in iTunes it starts stuttering and even if I stop what I'm doing it continues to stutter. Playing music isn't a strenuous thing, especially for a hexa-core CPU. Do you guys have any ideas?

Is it just that the onboard is junk and the card I tried is too old. It just seems fishy. Should I buy a new sound card or do you think my windows install is whacked somehow. I'm really confused by this.

The strange thing is I tried a discreet Creative sound card with the same results. Though, like I said, it was an older sound card out far before Windows 7 came out. It seems like a problem with Windows 7 or something. I'm getting a Corsair Nova 32GB SSD in the mail today so hopefully a reinstall will fix this, I hope.

no clue honestly, its a really weird problem,

try to put your CPU back to stock and see if it fixes sound


back in the day stuttering happened when southbridge was occupied and had bandwidth issues,
maybe the RAID is messing with it now

That's not the same problem I was having. It was much worse than just sound crackling. Though I ended up getting a SSD and reinstalling Windows, that solved the problem.
