Sound from speakers during CPU load Studio Monitors

Here for the gear

Sound from speakers during CPU load

I'm getting a high pitch sound from my speakers during CPU load over 1GHz. Below there's zero pitch sound. I've read a bunch of threads all over the internet but haven't found a solution yet.

I'm also using a wireless headset with my computer without problem.

CPU: Intel Core i7 7700k
Headset: Astro A50
Sound system: KRK 10S & 2 KRK VXT 4

Are you using an audio interface, or do you have the speakers plugged directly into the computer? If you're using a USB interface, you might be hearing some USB noise through the speakers.

Try another power supply, or if its a lappy, test by unplugging the psu and running on battery.

Some cheap switching psu have bad rectifier circuits and squeal under load. You'll hear it coming from the psu itself and often it will bleed into the audio.

Apparently, the OP got his answer on another forum. Nice of him to let us know. Unparticipating.
