    I have exactly the same problem with Soundblaster Z.

    Hi.

    Exactly the same problem for me with the soundblaster Z.
    Have put the card in all free pcix slots, nothing helped.
    Speccs as follows.

    cpu = intel i7 6700k
    mb = asus maximus viii hero bios version 1202 (same problem with older bios as well)
    ram = ddr4 corsair vengeance lpx 3200 mhz 2x8
    psu = corsair rm750x
    ssd = samsung 950 Pro 512gb
    sc = soundblaster z
    video card = asus matrix gtx980
    cpu cooler = noctua nh-u14s
    case = nzxt h440
