Crackling sound on onboard sound Tags: Sound Cards Components Last response: September 3, 2010 1:03 AM in Components Share squallypie September 2, 2010 10:34:32 PM Hi, I am currently running on onboard audio ( realtek HD ) on a gigabyte mobo. The problem is, when i play some intensive games like battlefield 2 or alien swarm, the sound ( game's sound and windows media player ) crackles alot during gameplay.. i first thought it was coz cpu was running at 100%. But when i perform a prime95 test, music was playing smoothly. Now my next suspect is the PSU. I am running some PSU by Delta Electronics rated at 400W and peak 450W. My other specs :- E6750 ( 1.3975V and 3.6 Ghz OC ) ATI Radeon HD 5670 4 GB OCZ DDR2-800 So is the onboard sound not getting enough power? I think like this, coz when i play games, GPU and CPU run at 100%.. therefore they maybe drinking all the juice.. Or do you think there can be something else wrong? Drivers are also the latest..
