    Default Humming from speakers

    I just built a (GA-H170-Gaming 3) base system.
    I'm getting humming from the on board audio.
    Can anybody help.
    Thanks

    Yes you are right.
    I just did some wire rearranging and it stopped.
    I had never had speakers hum before.
    I just assumed it was the on board audio.
    Thank you.

    You're welcome.

    I'm glad to see that rearranging your cables eliminated the speaker hum problem.

    Fixing ground loop problems sometimes can be difficult.

    Could you please state how it was wired before and what you did to fix it so it can help others as well?
