    Hey ocau.

    In need some sound help. I own a pair of corsair h1400s and recently i have had a large amount of static building up through the mic. When i say build up, its like it starts off low and over about 3 seconds builds up to full white noise. I am currently using a splitter to seperate mic and headphones, and just using onboard sound. The headphones/mic works fine on any other pc without the splitter.

    Is this a mobo issue? Or is it a headphone issue? Or is this a common problem?

    I need help before my mates on skype turn on friendly fire..

    Its probably the auto level adjust of skype causing the issues

    Edit: Speaking from first hand experience here, if you are quiet for a while it will build up and pick up noise around you as you have described
