Hopefully you are having better luck than I am. Mine seemed to work great for 2 days.

Everything I have tried to resolve this issue:


*A brand new card
*Both sets of drivers
*Happens on speakers and headphones.
*Turning off EAX or CMS3D
*Removing all IRQ sharing
*Disabling almost everything in BIOS
*Updating BIOS to latest official, and even tried newer non-official
*Tried disabling ACPI
*Tried numerous reformat's, and CMOS resets.
*Have the latest Video, Mobo, and sound drivers
*Changing PCI latency

I'm waiting for a new driver. This is the first time I have had an issue like this. My Audigy2 ZS worked flawless.

I have that problem with my Audigy 2, and I fixed it by moving to an older driver...

Wow, scary stuff, JakUp :eek: !! I just put an X-Fi Em in tonight.....Its a couple hours old, so far i love it. I've never heard surround and positional effects like this card does them. The X-Fi is killer in gaming.

I had the same problem with my Audigy2 ZS, it wasen't an issue with the card or driver......it was caused by "noisy" PCI slots of the DFI Nf4U motherboard I was running at the time...

So far so good with me but I have had that issue with older cards. I don't believe I've had it since the Audigy and onward though.

Congrats on the card overheat. Hopefully they'll show up here locally soon, if not, I'll probably order one online.

Finally got mine just a little while ago. The Fatal1ty version finally made it to retail in my area.
