Just thought I would try here before I RMA the new Phoebus.
I installed the card, and while the sound quality is really good, even compared to my XFi, there is one thing that has been a real problem.
Loaded up BF3, and played about 20mins of a round of conquest and then got a lockup with sound looping. Had to hard reset to get back into Windows 7
Now this is the first time I have ever had this lockup as up until now, I have had my XFi installed and never had a lockup of this nature. So I thought I would try again, and within 10 mins I had the same lockup.
So I thought I would do a clean install of Windows and still had the problem.
Updated MB Bios
Changed PCI-E slots
Tried with all enhancements turned on and off in the sound card properties.
Lowered and raised the Hz
Reinstalled BF3 and Phoebus drivers
The only way I can get the card not to lockup is by going on non Punkbuster servers.
So after a pretty rubbish weekend troubleshooting the problem and searching for answers, I have pulled the card and put back the XFi which works fine, even the on board sound worked fine aswell.
I'm running the Gigabyte Z77 UD5H and 2600K
Any ideas Raja?
