Did my sound card just die or am I getting EM interference from a more powerful GPU?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi.

As per this thread over in the ATI section:

http://www.overclock.net/ati/896451-...ed-6950-a.html

I'm wondering if it's likely my sound card has died or if I'm just getting EM interference. The only thing(s) I've changed have been a move to 6950 and switching from DVI-D video cable to HDMI to DVI-D cable (for video only, no sound).

However, whenever rendering 3D images I get an annoying buzz/squeal which changes depending on me moving the mouse and/or changing what I'm looking at. Pretty annoying stuff.

Suggestions welcome.

Definitely sounds like EMI, can you move the soundcard further away from the video card?

I'm currently going through this issue as well, but I'm sure it's the GPU because my sound card works flawlessly with my old 8800GT and the two different mobos / PSUs that I've run it with. Although maybe it worked with the 8800GT because it was that BFG tech one that was covered by a little plastic shell?

I'm in the process of RMAing it.

Anyway is there a guide somewhere to GPU EMI?

I had real problems with my Xonar and EMI when running to an external amp. Every time I moved the mouse, open and closed windows it would whine. Had to go digital in the end.

ive just put a xonar d2x into mine, and got static, and various other noises
im also running to a external amp , and also from swindon oo

ill try swapping slot, as the 1x slot i put it in, it didnt feel like detecting, the other 1x slot is right under the 16x slot, so taken up with a gfx card :\\
