Hi JakeW. Thanks, but no it isn't like that.
I can power on the NUC and there is no problems. I think it happens after playing the first music (youtube or winamp or.. ) dosen't matter. After af few seconds after I pause or stops - or the music finish itself - the ticking sound begins.
During music-playing I cant hear the ticking sound or it's gone. I think it's gone.
Here is a link - so you er able to hear the ticking sound:
Aliaz, would you please let me know which the current BIOS version on your NUC is?
Would you please try taking all components out of the chassis and test the NUC on a non conducted surface so we can discard grounding issues?
Please provide me only with the AA# of your NUC.
BIOS version was version 30. Just updated it to 35. Didn't help.
What is AA# ?
Someday I'll try taking all components out of the chassis.
Is the NUC sensitive to WIFI? I'd try to power off the WIFI - didn't help.
What about speaker cables or other power cables?
Aliaz, are you getting the same ticking sound when using headphones on the NUC?
The ticking sound isn't there when using headphones.
I did only put in RAM and Samsung EVO 250GB SSD in the NUC. Could it still be a grounding issue? Why doesn't it have a ground leg on the power-cable?
My NUC stands on wood-floor.
I found out it's the Intel drivers gfx/hdmi.
I'd try the newest drivers and the problem was gone - but the newest driver didn't include dts-hd and trueHD
so I went back to the older version and ticking sound.
Aliaz, would you please let me know which driver version fixed the ticking sound and which one didn’t include the dts-hd and trueHD?
