Sqealing noise from speakers

Hi all,

I got great feedback when I posted the component list for this build(list below) so I thought I'd ask for some help with the problem that has arisen.

I am getting a high pitched squeal noise from the speakers as soon as windows loads without any other sounds from windows(startup, games, movies etc.) The sound is not coming from the case, if i turn the speakers off it goes away and its gets louder when i put my head next to them. I've seen similar issues through google but none of the solutions have helped.

Here is what I have tried so far:

Uninstall/reinstall audio drivers
Remove/reseat all components and cables to and from the mobo
Flashed the current BIOS to the mobo
Tried the speakers on different computer
Tried headphones

At this point I'm pretty much down to RMA the board(which I really wanted to avoid). Let me know what you all think.

Could be coil whine.

Coil whine often manifests itself through the audio output of the mobo. The cause is most commonly the mobo or the graphics card.

Have you tried the graphics card in a different computer? If you have, and no coil whine, then you're right and it's most likely the mobo.

I forgot one thing. Not discounting coil whine.

The sound worked fine after i had installed everything except the wireless card(it was the last to show up). This problem started after I plugged it in. I have tried removing it but that does not make the noise go away.

I the problem does not go away when you remove your wireless card, then the wireless card is NOT the problem. :non: 

It is possible that when you installed the wireless card, you damaged something else on the MOBO that is causing the problem.

Yea, I kinda figured that might be the case. I had everything off, unplugged and static safe(i work in a static sensitive environment so i know the drill) but its possible that something happened. I could try using a standalone audio card but if the mobo is the issue it could be affecting other things as well.
