I've just bought an Asus Strix 7.1, and after switched the ENC to on, i still can hear ambiant sound around me (like the computer fan).

And sometimes the base keep reload in chain when ENC is activated, the base emit some heat.

It really depends how loud the environment you're in.

So I'm guessing you're using the headset for gaming and people can hear the fan noise when you're speaking through the mic?

No, people say nothing about this, it's me who don't notice a diffrence when active and not active.

And is it normal that everytime afater one hour of gaming the base keep reload like he was overheating then work like nothing?

You do know it's Environment Noise Cancellation not Electronic Noise Cancellation right? You're probably confused like many other people that think ENC is targeted for noise cancellation through speakers. ENC actually is used to cancel out noise through your MIC when you're talking in a noisy environment, so the person on the other side talking to you won't hear the background noise.

You can also double check the product page for the Strix 7.1 as they briefly mention about it too.

Here's a corny video done by C-Media but it gets the point across. This will give you a better understanding of how ENC works
