    Hey guys,

    Today I reïnstalled Windows Vista. I remembered that when I installed SP1, the crackling sound of my X-fi appeared.

    And now I am still having this problem.. I have all updates installed for Windows Vista Business 64-bit (including service pack 2). And installed the latest X-fi drivers from the Creative website.

    So what to do about the crackling sound? I really do not see why Creative still did not notice it..

    Vinnie.

    i get this problem as well on my elite pro, but only in games. music playback is fine

    at times raising or lowering the pci latency in bios will help, but it always comes back after a few hours

    really annoying

    Nvidia boards suffer from this problem a lot.

    Most recent Creative drivers supposedly help fix this.

    ^^^ cant be an isolated motherboard problem. i had an xtreme gamer xfi in a xfx 8200 motherboard which was nvidia based, and now i have this elite in the new msi 790fx-gd70 which has an amd chipset

    Agreed. And no, its not bandwith, as even the Titanium runs into SC&P (snap, crackle, & pop) once in a while.

    The only "solution" is to get either a ASUS or Auzentech card.

    LOL! Funny, I am using my XFi Xtreme Gamer Fatal1ty, used on 3 OS's, XP, Vista and Win7 over 2 computer overhauls and guess what?! No SC&P EVER. I'd try PAX drivers before I went an blew money on another card.

    Yikes guys chill out, I said it happens on a lot of Nvidia BASED boards not ALL. It happened to me on my 790i Ultra SLI when I was on my Q9450. Switching to my X-fi Titanium with pci-e fixed this problem though.

    For some reason the PCI bus on nforce boards just doesn't cooperate well with X-fi. That and Creative claims new drivers fix these issues.

    Its not a PCI issue, as the Titanium is still known to SC&P once in a while. Thats why I think its crappy drivers + some other factor, otherwise the PCI-E based Titanium would be all but immune.
