    after a few useless tips from the support (put it as far away from the graphicscard, etc.) they offered me to take it back and test it in their tech-center.

    i think i'm gonna change it and hope for a better one...

    today, the new one arrived.

    i really wanted it to be better, but its just the same problem as befor.
    depending on the fps in a game, its more or less noisy.

    but it helped me to isolate the card with some tape from the pc case. it lowers the noise a little bit.

    not that i know of :/ But I have seen this issue on many posts. They are usually asked to RMA it but then it comes back and its the same thing. Not sure whats causing it.

    Ok - time I dipped my toe in this pool and joined the discussion. Yes I bought a card, I've always used Creative cards in the past and this was my first foray outside of my comfort zone by buying the ROG Phoebus. Having read this thread and just RMAed the card to the supplier I can't help feeling I've made a dreadful mistake. Here are my components,

    XFX 7970 3gb card
    Asus M5A99R1
    AMD bulldozer 4.2
    8GB 1600
    Sennheiser PC350 headphones

    So I followed the instructions and uninstalled my old Creative drivers and removed the card. Followed the manual as far as installation went and yes, upon connecting everything I had a motorbike engine in my pc. So I went looking for solutions and this is what I've tried.

    Software - tried all the tweaks on here, as the PC350 headset has a good quality microphone I've dropped the gain down to zero DB. Sadly it's not made any real difference.

    Moving audio card away from video card. I've dropped my card into the bottom slot as far away from my video card as possible. It lessened the EMI - a little. Off to RS Components and £20 worth of ferrite cores and stuck them on every power lead and audio cable. Not much improvement there. Liberated a £60 sheet of moldable EMI shielding from my work. Again, small improvement.

    Moved the cables away from the video card by routing them round the other side of the PC - no difference.

    Installed an old dead video card from another pc to act as a barrier - again a slight improvement.

    Disconnected the front panel audio connector - no difference.

    The only thing that made any appreciable difference was unplugging my microphone altogether - that works. sadly it makes using TeamSpeak slightly difficult.

    Last thing I could think about doing was replace the old PSU with a shiny new modular one. £150 lighter for that but that didn't change a thing.

    So last night I solved the problem and my TeamSpeak friends were delighted as I was coming through clear and there was no additional background noise. The only reason this happened because I uninstalled my Phoebus to RMA it and stuck back in my very old Creative Xi-Fi card.

    To say I'm disappointed with this card would be the understatement of the millennium.

    helo guys. i have to share my experience.
    i had this problem too like there was a huge chaisaw blowing into my mic.
    i0ve found a solution to this or atl east in my case.
    i use a razer tiamat 7.1 and since i did this i never had any problem.
    i plugged all audio connector to the board except for the mic.
    i plugged the mic into the rog base wich regolate the volume.
    after this i went to the software and i turned on the nfc (noise control field i think).
    since i use this configuration i totally extinguished the problem ...
    i invite you to try this guys cause it really changed my life.
    like lot of you i was struggling with this problem
    hope that this can be helpfull for someone

    Get the cheapest one you can find, you won't use it's output anyway. It's sad that junk hardware works better than such a expensive sound card as the Phoebus,

    I have been following this thread since I purchased my Asus Xonar Essence STX sound card and experienced the microphone buzzing sound.

    A while ago I solved the issue - or at least greatly diminished it, by disabling the Intel SpeedStep option in my motherboards BIOS.

    Recently I updated my BIOS and formatted my hdd, experienced the buzzing sound again, disabled Intel SpeedStep in the BIOS and the microphone buzz subsided

    I hope this solution is able to help some others.

    Other components include an Asus P79x79 Pro motherboard, NVidia GeForce 560Ti and Intel i7.
