Going to build my system today, and the ASUS P8Z68-M Pro is the motherboard. Been a while since I built a PC so was wondering if any ASUS P8Z68-M Pro users or Asus veterans would like to lend some tips about setting this board up properly.
System went together flawlessly. The motherboard BIOS was at version 3806 out of the box so I was very pleased not to have to flash the bios! System spent 2 solid days turned on, and burned in, played games with out any hiccups.
The only issue I seem to have is every once in a while I get some static feedback on speakers plugged into the rear jacks when playing games. Happened on two different sets of speakers so I know it's the jack. Front headphone jack doesn't have the feedback, and neither does a USB headset so I know it's not drivers either.
That can be anything from dust, to driver, to connection to interference. For 2 channel use the (green) stereo jack. You can try to clean with a degreaser like Isopropyl alcohol. Dampen the jack with alcohol twist around in the plug, clean off and repeat. Failure try an updated drive and try a higher sampling rate in the control panel.
