I also read somewhere that it might be audio? Should I test that? (By removing the audio drivers)

Quick thing, I would never usually reccomend a Case With a PSU as most of the time the PSUs are barely worth there metal housings. BUT, Cooler master is an exception to that, especially with their elite series. And, this has a 960 in it!
