I appreciate any help .
I have the Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe with i7+16GB ram.....and 680GTX with creative ZXR.
All was perfect , until I got a new 680 for sli, and had to change the place of the creative zxr from pciexp1_3 to PCIex1 blue1_1 (the other remaining PCIE1 blue remaing is between the sli cards)
SO now @ random power on just befor the UEFI or the boot logo appears an irritating hiss like sound comes from the speakers connected to the ZXR, and when windows load, I can only see (in the device manager)sound blaster audio controller +sound blaster zxr dbpro , what is missing is the "sound blaster zxr" that used to show when there is no hiss .
I changed the place of the ZXR to the PCIe1_3 between the sli cards, and after many attempts no hiss came, even tried the PCIe16_3 (the black one)and the his came back .
The only fix was to place the card between the sli card which gave me 7 degrees increase in temp in the GPU1.
I removed the 2nd 680gtx card and kept one and tested to see if the problem was from the sli, and the problem stayed, so I concluded that my ZXR only liked the PCIE1_3! any logic?
This his is not"Sound/os/bit-rate related" as I mentioned the hiss starts just before the boot screen, and I have a corsair AX850 .
The problem is strange, when the Hiss/static sound starts the Sound blaster ZXR is not in the devise manager as with the above picture only Audio controller and dbpro are there.
So I can not chose the card as a default player as its not being "fully detected" hence no sound will be played except the hiss/static like sound.
The card will work without the hiss sound sometimes and sometimes not! in the PCIEX_1.
The only position where this issue is absent is between the GPU cards in PCIEX_3...I know this makes no sense but I tried every imaginable scenario, and yesterday updated to bios 2003, thinking maybe ....unfortunately, nope!
I left the PC off for 6 hours and then turned it on and the hiss is still there , so the thermal issue is not the case.
The only other fix , if there is hiss, is to turn it off and on again and the hiss is gone??!!
Did you solve your problem with that irritating hiss and ZxR disconnecting?
I have exactly the same problem on my old mobo Gygabyte G33M-S2.
Don't know what to do. New drivers 126.96.36.199 didn't help. Creative Worldwide Customer Response can't help.
The only issue is to completely turn off the AC Power Supply, but this can't solve the problem in general.
