I honestly believe this isn't a MoBo issue, as I've heard of it happening with multiple cases. If the audio shares a ground circuit with something else in your setup, annoying noise - or "feedback", will result. The fact that it works perfectly in your rear audio port suggests to me that it's the case that has the bad ground, not the audio circuitry on your MoBo itself.

To explain this "feedback" a little further (Electrical Engineers may want to look away now lol) Ground is where electricity wants to go to. Let's say Electricity is water, and you and I are two sinks sharing the same drain. The drain in this example is the ground. If your faucet is on, and you are pouring water down the drain, then when I turn on my faucet, the drain can't handle all my water. Ok, that's grossly simplified and not 100% accurate, but it should help shed some light onto how and why this is happening.

In some cases, the "feedback" can cause problems with both circuits (both sinks start to overflow) or only one sink can see the "overflow" problem. That depends on a lot more factors than my hurr-durr brain can comprehend.

I hope I have shed some light on this situation a little bit for you. I would recommend checking yout your case manufacturer's forums to see if anyone has posted a "How To" article on fixing this.
