Ok thanks. I thought a ground problem would mean some risk but you don't see a problem to continue using the PC?

Also I'd like to know what happened. I thought the problem was coming from a software, it is possible it created that kind of malfunction?

skupples power supply is usually the first thing to check.

I'd also remove one card, then test as well.

I spend $200 on an external solution that does both. One line to speakers, n a switch over button for head phones, or the USB input.

external solutions pretty much always trump sound cards, even in gaming situations.

Optical, and USB? and both reproduce this interference? Maybe your ground is faulty?
Thanks for the reply, yes, I thought about the ground because I don't see how signal through Spdif could be noisy this way. Is there something I should do immediatly if it's the ground? How should I determine what component is faulty?

I have a dedicated sound card to speakers via Spdif (this connection is great for removing buzz when you have self-powered speakers) and another one for headphones via USB, I don't use onboard audio. Both sound cards are cheaper together than one sound card with two outputs and I can switch from headphones to speakers with a simple shortcut.

Motherboard seems faulty, risky to use?

Hi,

Some accident happened with my audio going nuts and speakers emitting a loud and awful noise.

After reboot noise has disappeared but I can hear crackling on my speakers and my headphones. Both are plugged to external sound card and reinstalling the drivers didn't fix the problem.

I believe there is some electrical interference although the sound card of my speakers is plugged via Spdif, which does not conduct electricity. My other sound card is plugged via USB at the back of the board.

Everything else looks fine, I can run a game. But can it be somewhat risky for the hardware? I'll buy another MB but I cannot at this time...
