    hi all,

    Playing lots of BF3 atm on my Pc using headsets + on desk mic. Getting interference through my headset when ever the game starts, its just a constant drone/buzzing and it turns out its going through my mic to other people too which is a pain.

    Any ideas on how I can resolve this? Or whats causing it. Moved both away from power cables but still no success

    Confuuuuused x

    That might be the problem, probably motherboard interference. I expect a cheap but decent soundcard would eliminate this.

    Ferrite core arrived, put them all over and have limited interference. Not removed it totally though :s .. need to remove them 1 by one and work out which was the culprit now
