Are you talking about a buzzing or hissing coming from inside the computer case, or from your speakers? I received a replacement through MSI which arrived today. If it was the latter, that could be the issue as well. THis board is brand new, so maybe it’s worth sending in for a replacement But i’d mixed it up with another kit that i had near by when rebuilding my server and my workstation.

Z77A-GD65 and front panel audio problem !!

If from inside the case, it could be the voltage regulators on your video card making the noise. But i’d mixed it up with another kit that i had near by when rebuilding my z77a-gd65 and my workstation.

Could this be a hardware failure? Normally setting Headphones front and Speakers back to standard device should be sufficient to switch between those. EDIT; I found it and turned it off in the bios.

I disabled the “Front jack panel detection” which enabled the front panel output, but the sound coming from my headphones is like someone scratching their nails on a blackboard screeching. Not sure if this is gona help or if im wrong, but of no one else helping, ill give a shot, I never really tried the DTS Connect as i let the soundcard decode and send it through 3.


The backpanel however will not work no matter what I’ve tried. This is not exclusive of the msi, you have different ways to do this, 1 easiest would be to send the signal through hdmi, the PCM audio signal can be read by most receivers.

Removing the xonar didn’t help, i even uninstalled the drivers. Here is a screen shot Digital is disabled and even though my speakers are plugged into the Green output on the back of the motherboard it’s not registering in Windows. I really don’t know how to fix it.

MSI Z77A-GD65 weird static noise from onboard sound

I really like this mobo, but seriously something this nagging is going to be a deal breaker if I can’t find a solution.

Might want to open a ticket with msi. Some cards do it worse than others, even brand new. I’ll let you know how it went with the retailer when i get a reply from them. Everything works except the audio, so it seems extremely strange that there were bent pins? If it does, try the VGA in another computer. After all that I enabled OC genie, and played some bf3.

I guess the psu isn’t the problem. I noticed that I hear a little buzz Idk how to call it ms when I’m playing. They still refuse to take it back.

This all may be related. Home Help Search Login Register. I tried switching cables, didn’t fix it.


I see no options for such with the bundled software, only “surround” coughed up through a regular stereo format. I see 1 very slightly bent pin after really scrutinizing it over and over again. I’m using an optical cable to my receiver.

Speakers ssound set standard device and still no sound sounds like a maybe win8 related software issue or even hardware failure. So it is only when I’m playing games. There is also Dolby live but I’m not sure if the Realtek can or is able to use it to live encode. I got a reply from MSI that said the socket is fine and that the retailer should have replaced the board.

MSI Z77A-GD65 Motherboard

Thanks for the followup update. Not all cases play nice with all motherboards–I had one Antec case where I had to place a small strip of electrical tape at the backplane in order to prevent solder joints from touching parts of the case, and this happened to be the solder joints for the onboard sound which was creating a real nasty whine.

THis board is brand new, so maybe it’s worth sending in for a replacement Recieved an email from the place of purchase.
