I built a new computer using a P8Z68-V Gen3 motherboard, 16GB RAM 2xGTX 460 and a OCZ Vertex 3 SSD.

Every once in awhile (anywhere from 3 times an hour to once every 2 hours) the computer will lock up and repeat the last bit of sound quickly (sounds like a machine gun a lot of the time).

This will last up to 5 or 6 seconds. Asus told me it could be an issue with the board, and I've gone through 3 mainboards and nothing.

Any suggestions?

I can give it a shot in the dark.

Are you using the latest Audio drivers and try to reset the audio service Windows Audio is the services name but I only guessing it the service but it more likely to effect the drivers

What are you outputting to headset or speakers when it does that. It may be interference from something

I more worried about 3 main-boards and nothing because I had bad experience with ASUS. Was this a RMA board or a replacement board?

Hope that helps

It was 1 RMA and I bought a duplicate board to make 3 different boards.

I am outputting to a mixer that outputs to speakers and headphones.

I believe the sound is only a by product. The whole computer freezes up during the time. Mouse locks up etc.

Thanks for the reply.
