This happened to me a bunch of times before until i started some massive troubleshooting.
The final thing i did was downclock the FSB (front side bus) of the motherboard effectively downclock the CPU aswell, (I had it a little overclocked, but no where near the limit of tolerance for the motherboard), this also in turn downclocked the memoryspeeds aswell. While this may sound strange, it did fix all squealing issues with this card. Keep in mind that the RealTek chip built in on the motherboard never had any of these issues even when running at insane CPU/FSB clockspeeds.

I have no idea if this is the superfix for this issue, but atleast that kind of changing made my card behave good again. Random event? maybe. I've ran the motherboard at lower clockspeed for a year now, and no squealing highpitch noises, while before I had atleast 1 per month, and they are god awful when they occur.

Wherever this is a PCI bus issue, or the card not being able to handle specific bus speeds, or cannot handle RAM errors (if these occurs aswell at higher bus speeds), I don't really know. Maybe its even power related.

A full troubleshooting from ASUS on this would be helpful to find the actual cause of this. since this only happens for me on this specific audiocard.

On some other forum someone said he put electric tape on the bracket of the card, and that fixed the issue. (insulationtape I would guess).

The solution for this head bursting headphone wrecking SCREECH is to NOT use the Asus drivers...

I had this problem for quite awhile now and Asus seems to ignore it.
So here it is:

Go to the Auzentech dot com website.
Go to DOWNLOAD and get the "X-Meridian 2G" drivers.
Extract them on your computer and open the "cmudaxp.ini" file.
/PCI-8788-110301-7.12.8.1793(W7-FR1.0)/SoftwareDriver/INI/cmudaxp.ini

Scroll down in the file until you see [CMEDIA]:

Under [CMEDIA] paste the following line:
PCI\VEN_13F6&DEV_8788&SUBSYS_835C1043 = WDM_CMPCI6

The "835C1043" part identifies the STX
Go to device manager -> your card -> properties -> details -> set properties (hardware-id) to find if yours is different.
Save the file.

Then open file:
/PCI-8788-110301-7.12.8.1793(W7-FR1.0)/SoftwareDriver/Driver/CMPCIP0.INF

Under [C-Media] paste this:
%CMI8788.DeviceDesc%=CMPCI,    PCI\VEN_13F6&DEV_8788&SUBSYS_835C1043

Under [C-Media.NTamd64] paste this:
%CMI8788.DeviceDesc%=CMPCIX64,    PCI\VEN_13F6&DEV_8788&SUBSYS_835C1043

Again change the number accordingly
Save

Uninstall the ASUS crapdrivers and software control panel

Run the "setup.exe" found in the "/PCI-8788-110301-7.12.8.1793(W7-FR1.0)/" folder.
It will install the "C-Media Oxygen HD Audio Device"
Reboot.

After i did this the problems went away.
From a daily/weekly heart attack to a 3 month 0 occurrence.
Strangely it uses the same driver version as Asus did: 7.12.8.1793
But you get a "clean" official c-media driver set and control panel.

I hope this will work for you as well.

The most important thing that we need Asus to explain is whether that suddenly high pitched EEEEEE noise would damage any connected headphones and earphones or not! As our headphones are normally expensive when using this sound card! Please reply us quickly and we need Asus to find solution as quick as they can!

Have you set to 44.1KHZ? And seems HIFI mode would easily cause this!

I agree with you! As it is now, i wont/cant use this soundcard, its very dangerous for your ears in the first place, and the headphones on the second... Will it help to set sample to 44.1? And yes, we need to hear from ASUS about this...
