Hey guys, another problem for you. My computer speakers have been making this weird sound that is very high pitched and very annoying. When I go into my speaker settings and change the level called "front pink-in", when I turn it all the way down the sound goes away so im guessing it is that plug that has a problem. I am using brand new turtle beaches and it picks up the sound as well when I use the plugs on the front of the case. The microphone works really good. It can't be the speakers if the headset does the same thing. I built my PC Thursday night and everything is perfect but the sound. Need some help please this thing is driving me crazy!

The pink jack is for your microphone.
What have you got plugged into this while using speakers?
Try unplugging anything from the jack ansd see if the sound goes away.

The jacks on the back of the case are a better option if you can. These are on the motherboard rather than using a cable to the jacks provided by the case manufacturer.

When it happens all I have plugged in is the green jack, black, and orange for my surround system. And the Sound happens then. Then I unplug everything and just plug in my Turtle beaches and it still makes the noise. Not sure what to do. People on teamspeak say it makes the noise when I talk. I tried recording myself on the souind recorder and I hear the noise, very annoying. Not sure what to do

Open the computer case and look for the cable that runs from the audio jacks to the motherboard. This should be a 10-pin connector with one pin missing. Disconnect this cable and see if the sound stops.
If this does work and you want to use the front audio jacks, try to see if there are any dodgy connections on these front jacks.

The one that says SPDIF-OUT?

Generally not, the SPDIF-OUT connector would have less pins, but the label may be misleading. The audio connector will be yellow or black, rectangular with a 10 pin connector that has one pin missing. You can unplug any of these while the computer is off to have a look.

I found what you said. I unplugged it and it didn't make the noise. That mean my front panel audio ports are screwed up?

It probably means one of the connector wires for this plug is making a connection with the case. These front audio jacks are often not very good. If you can do without front audio jacks, just leave it unplugged.
