The weird thing is it started a few weeks after building the computer; until then there was no issue.

    I was able to fix the noise coming from the USB port by flashing the bios back to F7. I can keep all power saving features on and plug any USB device in with no issue. However, no matter what bios or settings I change, I get a pretty bad ringing in my ears/head whenever I'm around the computer. It's not really a sound, more like a vibration in my ears (I've actually had to go to the doctor for the pain). My wife and her friends can't hear/feel it, but my male friends can...

    Does anyone else have this ear-ringing completely separate from the USB noise?

    I guess I'm going to take the 20% hit from Amazon to return the board after 30 days and buy a different brand. This kind of thing just shouldn't happen or be accepted in my opinion. And since it's not broken, I can't really RMA it from what I've heard. Quite a let down for my first experience building in a while....
    its probably your psu thats causing the noise,its same make/model the previous user had,i have a cheapo power supply so thats probably why im hearing the noise but on my other comp with a quality psu i get no noise at all

    btw it doesnt matter whether its expensive or a cheap psu,its still hit and miss whether it will cause mb squeal

    Well I don't have this problem at ALL now since I followed wazza300's instructions. I'm using the F8 BIOS too.
