Hissing sound when playing a game

Hey guys, recently I've noticed a sort of hissing sound coming from my computer speaker. It appears when I'm playing a game (quiet when loading but as soon as it hits menu it's very audible) and changes pitch/rhythm. It also appears when I'm using Smooth Scrolling in Opera or Firefox.

System Specs:

Intel i5 3450 3.2 Ghz
Gigabyte B75 Motherboard
6 GB DDR3
Coolermaster 550 GX PSU
ASUS 7850 DC2 2GB
Coolermaster K380 Chassis.

  1. Have you tried using different speaker? It is probably a problem with the speaker.

    Yes. same result :(
  3. Have noticed that too on my old computer. Exactly as mentioned, moving windows around and graphics intensive gaming. Did not find a solution back then. Bumping this thread a bit, and also to get a notification if a solution is found.
  4. Have you tried to uninstall/reinstall the latest realtek driver?
  5. Assassination attempt, hehe.

    done that..problem persists
  7. From all my old attempts back then, looks like a hardware issue. Something like interference from the bus or the motherboard.
