Hey everyone. First of all I just wanna say head-fi rocks! This is one of the friendiest and most knowledgable communities out there. More to the point, I have a d2x hooked up to my headphones and speakers and it makes a very wierd high frequency noise. The sound is not constant sort of like zi zi zi zi with a rare zizizizizzi in it.
Its nearly bearly audible so you cant hear it while playing any sound but its really anoyiing if youre not. The weirdest thing is, since I wanted to see if its PSU stress related, I used prime to put the cpu on full load and the noise dissapeared. I am not a complete moron so I googled it but the suggestions I found dont seem related to the cpu stress level.
I did the obvious things:
- updated drivers
- removed all external devices
- changed pcie slots
- removed any other inpu to the d2x apart from headphones
- checked the wiring inside the case
Here is my system specs in case their relevant:
Windows 7 ultimate x64
Hiper Type-M 800 880w psu
Core i7 920 D0
ATI HD 5870
1x25-m, 3xseagate barracuda's in raid, 1 WD hard disk
Latest drivers as of 16/09/2011 for video and audio cards.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated
