ive got a pair of senheiser usb headphones,when ive been gaming for a while or when i push my pc to the limit (over clock gpu ) the sound really starts to disintegrate,it gets so bad it starts to crackle and make really weird noises to the point where i have no sound at all,then i have to re boot my pc and its ok again,any help would be appreciated .it sounds like there is to much stress with the on-board sound card built in to the mobbo.

May be RF noise from the overclocked CPU/GPU, or it is just scewing with the onboard chip in some other way.

Lower the OC and you will be ok,yes?

Maybe update your mobo & sound drivers and maybe the mobo bios.

Does it do it with different player software?

I'm not a fan of USB sound.
Stick to the PCI bus, I say!

USB headphones will have their own sound interface. Thus you've effectively got two sound cards, the onboard sound card (that's hard-wired to your PCI bus) and an external one connected via USB.

Buying a second sound card is not going to make one iota of difference, as the audio in question is not being routed that way.

sounds like a possible heat issue?

noticed that you mentioned it happens over time (maybe as it heats up) and happens quicker when o/c (o/c heats up quicker?)

...just throwing ideas out there

dude. check your buffers.

there should be some sort of application with the usb drivers. this should have changeable buffer settings. the bigger the buffer, the less crackle, but the longer the latency.

it might be there somewhere in control panel > audio devices.

have fun

Definitely sounds like a software/driver issue, or else the USB-headphones themsleves are stuffed.

No other hardware issues should be causing analogue distortion like that.

Does the distortion/interference sound analogue or digital?

Rob.
