I recently bought the Antec 902 case to replace my old modded cheap one..Problem is whenever I use the front panel audio out jack, I hear an irritating continous static. The rear I/O panel audio jacks does not share the problem.
What's causing this static? Is there any way to fix it?
Any help will be appreciated.
The Antec 902 should come with 2 connections for the front audio audio jacks. There is an AC’97 and a HDA connector, make sure you have the correct one connected, and make sure you have it connected to the correct port. If you know you have it connected to the correct port, then try switching to the other connector. More importantly, if you are use an extender to lengthen the cable, that might be allowing noise interference, ESPECIALLY if the extender isn't shielded.
