Hello everyone, I have a question regarding a pc i recently built and had troubles since then. Ok so i get the ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3, Phenom II x2 B55 (which was successfully unlocked to four cores), Viper II Sector 5 Series DDR3-16000, StealthXStream 2 700 Watt ATX Power Supply, 250 GB Barracuda HDD @ 7200 rpms. I am running 32 bit XP (also had installed 64bit Win 7). So far most of the things work fine on it, however there are 3 main problems i encounter and can not figure out.

1) - There is this terrible tearing scratching noise coming out of my headphones or sound system. I plugged in the headphone jack in the rear panel-same issue. It only happens when sound is produced - a video file is played, a game is started or the volume slider in volume control is moved.

2) - screen gets greenish pixelized when a movie is played. As if some codecs or something is missing. I downloaded current K Lite pack as well as most current video card drivers. Also pictures get pixelized and smushed.

3) - Flash crashes everytime i play youtube or Pandora. Takes about 1-2 minutes to crash.

I dont know if all three issues have any connection with each other but it seems like drivers cant fix it and i am starting to think its the mobo.
Any ideas/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Got it! Unlockin all four cores wouldnt do it. One of them was causing it to do the noise, tweak the video and crash programs. But for $87 i got me a perfectly well working Phenom II x3 @ 3.2.
Issue resolved.
