    Default Gigabyte EP45-DS4 crackling sound


    I have a problem with my new motherboard.

    Sound is crackling from time to time.
    I have sound card Club 3D Theatron Agrippa DTS 7.1 with latest drivers from official site.
    I have disabled onboard sound card in bios.

    What can I do?

    I hear something about PCI Latency and changing PCI slots, but my motherboard has only one PCI slot.

    Thanks for help.

    It seems that crackling is gone.

    Solution: Just set Power Settings in Vista to High Performance.

    More specifically it is the Processor power management - you have to set "minimum processor state" to 100%. Anything lesser seems to make these problems.
    OMG this is such a terrible "feature" :-\ In older days these sound problems were caused by IRQ sharing and now we have this :-]
