Sound crackaling followed by a FPS drop.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Recently, not all the time but quite afew times the sound when im playing games such as starcraft 2, battlefield bad company 2 and even when listening to an online radio the sound has started to make a crackaling noise. When this happens when im playing games i notice that my FPS drops aswell whilst its crackling. I have the most recent realtek audio drivers but I cant put a finger on what is actually causing this...

any ideas?

You could try going with the second most recent drivers to see if it helps at all. I would just make sure I have the most recent drivers and I would check all of my connections. Although it does sound like a driver issue to me. :/

I had the same problem with my old MB, I think its a chipset thing, try switching your sound card into another slot if you have one OR just run off your integrated sound (again if you have that)

Do you have any funky overclocks going on? If so, it's probably unstable. I'm lookin' at your rig and I don't know. If you have your memory multiplier at 8x and Bclk ratio at 21x then your CPU should be at 4.20Ghz (so you can run your ram at 1600MHz). You can do it with an H70. Also, maybe you could try the comp with only one GPU in at a time.


If those check out, you can try buying a sound card, but keep the box and everything in good shape so you can return it if the problem still persists.

The memory is running at 1528 I believe, I needed to update that. So i am running on 4ghz. I have set the BIOS back to default and tryed with the normal settings without overclocking and the problem is still there. It seems to crackle when I either start a video and stop a video and when the bass is high. Sometimes it wont happen at all and other times it does.
