Crackling sound on onboard sound
Sep 2, 2010, 10:34 PM
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..
