Interference with headphones!?!

Recently, I installed a new graphics card...had no problems. Then I added a new cooler so that the card would be silent and run cooler...problem is since adding the new cooler I am getting interference/static, etc from my headphones only. I have a Soundblaster Live audio card, the sound seems to be gone when using my speakers or when listening to music with my headphones. The interference is there when I am not running any apps and also when playing games, like WoW. Any ideas what is happening?

  1. could be getting some emi from the new fan. Try moving the sound card farther away if you can..
  2. I think I have found the problem. It was recommended by a friend that I move the cable connected to the graphics card, I did and it made a big difference. There is still some interference but, it is not as distracting and hardly noticable now. I am assuming the cable was too close to the audio cable...not sure though. Going to try and stomp it out completely now.
