Hi,

Have a problem with the sound.
I use an intern sound card > Audigy 2 ZS.

When I play music I hear "ticks" in the speakers.
These are the same ticks compared with the led-flashing coming form my SSD.
So there is something going there :) 

It could be in the bios,
the SpeedStep and energy-saving options of the CPU has to be disabled....
For one reason or another the SSD gets now his full power.

Can anybody confirm this?
Thx.
Theo.

How close are the SSD and soundcard? maybe some EM interference from the SSD............

In the same case he Jay :sarcastic: 
About 30 cm form each other.

The led from de SSD is flashing about every second....

But you could be right too.
I ma told to buy a extern soundcard.

Correct. > the soundcard is.

No conflict I guess:
I use Windows 7, 64 bit Ultimate.
IRQ16 > controller for the SSD

not conflicts sharing. What IRQ is your soundcard using?
Easiest way to try and change it is to move you card to a different pci slot.


See the red frame :) 
IRQ 17

I know.... but it' s not possible because of the graphics card... = a wide one en covers one pci slot.

Disable them in the device manager?

You have to know this first... I have the same problem with the same speakers
using the onboard audio.

Using a cheap set of speakers like the T20 of Creative are causing no problems.

Those studio monitors from Quad (high quality) are more sensitive.

I think that removing de sound card out of the case could help he.
Replace the sound with an external music module and connect with USB.

But I understand, it' s not a solution to the inside problem ;) 


I just learned that to disable the Speedstep is not an option here...
Not good for the CPU > gets to hot etc.
