Hi,

I have a Gigabyte Z390 Gaming X motherboard with Intel i7-9700K I have the same issue described here:
https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/gigabyte-z390-gaming-x-making-an-electric-buzz-sound.3531617

As I don't wish to replace the motherboard, I'm thinking about getting the following internal sound card:
(Creative Sound Blaster Audigy FX PCIe 5.1 Sound Card with High Performance Headphone Amp)

Will this make the input and output sound clean, or will it also pick up the background noise that comes from the motherboard?

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

It should, yes, to an extent but what sort of audio equipment are you working with? You might want to also look into the power delivery in your house, often times bad wiring in a crib can cause white noise, not to mention a bad(quality) PSU.

Please include/list your specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
OS:

Check and see which BIOS version you're currently on and if it needs updating.

Thank you :)

Regarding the audio equipment, I'm not using my computer as a studio computer. Usually I use it for gaming and I can hear that noise and also other gamers that I speak to hear it. Moreover, this noise can be heard without any equipment by just getting closer to the computer case and listening.
