Asus Radeon HD6970, static/noise in headset

Hi,

I just upgraded my GFX to Asus Radeon HD6970, this one:
http://uk.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=sWkAkFpyG7H9aL1h&templete=2

And i get static or noise in my headphones. E.g. when i scroll in the browser, or when im ingame. The noise frequence changes when i scroll up and down, og look around in game.

My soundcard is a Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Titanium, this one:
http://uk.store.creative.com/sound-blaster/sound-blaster-x-fi-titanium/1-17927.aspx

I have Roccat Kave Headphones. Dont think that it matters though..
I had no trouble before i upgraded to the Asus card. Before i had a Sapphire HD5770 Vapor-X, no problems with the sound at all.

The soundcard is positioned in a slot just next to the GFX card, but this isnt any different then before when i had the HD5770.

Any one know what it is, or what to do?
Hope someone can help :-)

/Lars

  1. I know exactly what you're talking about.

    I had that issue too with my creative x-fi. The problem unfortunately is compatibility issues with the motherboard. Creative wasn't very good at fixing the problem with certain motherboards, saying their drivers are just fine, but I could never fix it. So unfortunately for me, I have to use my onboard audio.
  2. Thanks for youre feedback borisof.

    I am not sure this is the problem, since when i plug in my Radeon HD5770, the noise isnt there.

    I should also mention that i also upgraded my PSU to a bigger one, since i wasnt sure that my default Dell 500W could cope. I have upgraded to this one:

    My computer is a Dell Precision T3500.

    this may sound stupid, but try updating the drivers for both the graphics card and the sound card.. just a thought

    This actually helped, so not that stupid :-)

    I upgraded the soundcard driver, and it helped reduce the noice, so that it is less noticeable.

    Thank you for helping.
