    Typically when watching a video on Youtube (not when playing a game or listening to music, or at least it hasn't happened yet) - there's a varied popping noise keeping a steady "pop pop pop pop pop" noise. It's extremely annoying and fixed by restarting my computer until I watch another Youtube video for a couple of minutes. Anyone know of a solution?

    They just released new drivers for the Forte, you may want to try them.

    It's now happening all the time. When I try to play games, listen to music, and even while booting up there's a popping noise. I have the latest drivers and it's not the speakers.

    Try it in a different system as the card may be picking up noise. If it does it in another system then RMA.

    This post has been dead for some time but I recently had this problem and found a solution. It started when I went from a GTX 285 to an stock overclocked 5870 videocard.

    It turned out that any overclocking done to either the system memory or to the cpu would cause problems with the Auzentech Forte 7.1. These problems would start after I had stressed the system with some intense gaming. It was that popping sound which might or might not go away with a restart.

    Now I do not have this anymore when I run the videocard, system memory and cpu at stock speeds. This is not too much of a loss since there was not much improvement in gaming at the overclocked speeds.

    This is a widely known issue with the Fortes, just take a look at the Auzentech forums Forte section. It seems like it's an overheating issue of somesort, and the total lack of support from Auzentech is concerning to say the least. I also had this issue so it took it back to the shop. The shop tried to get a replacement and after over 6 weeks of no answer from Auzentech, they agreed to let me change the card to another, so I got an Essence ST and I'm very glad that I did!
