NEVER use the front audio connectors on your case. Its not as good as just plugging them into your mobo directly.
While trying to figure out how to plug two audio output devices in the back of the mobo, and going to playback mic to test the back mic connection. I noticed it was set to +10 boost by default.
The boost was boosting up tiny static from 0db up to 10db lol.
I tested with and without the 10db boost in front and back and the problem is clearly the boost.
edit: actually the front panel is 80% and boost is about 20% of the problem.
