Graphics card error 43 and audio jack stop working

To preface, this has happened twice in 3 months with a different motherboard and RMA'd card.

In december my computer froze and my graphics card got error 43. I tried everything under the sun to get it to work but nothing did, so I RMA'd the card. Around the same time my audio jack stopped working (both front and back). I know how to set default device and what not, and reinstalled drivers, did the uninstall driver in device manager trick and nothing worked, just static sounds in headset. I bought a new mobo and the audio works.

Fast forward to yesterday, I'm having the exact same issue. My RMA'd card which worked for two months just got error 43, and after a bit of trying to fix that, my audio jack on my NEW mobo stopped working. I'm at a loss, could it be a grounding issue or my PSU going bad?

While the rig looks nice, I have to decline as there are torrents going on here. All sorts of troubles seem to follow torrent users.

Just keep your stuff in warranty and let the maker fix the PC.

No idea why you wouldn't want to help. Nothing wrong with torrents for simple things. I literally just reinstalled my PC so there's no reason a couple torrents would cause these issues, especially after years of safe torrenting. Also PC is custom built.

Maybe some one will dig in. Why I won't dig in?

Torrent users have the oddest issues. At the office we'll not accept them for service or support because they are just too dangerous to plug in to our network plus the other reasons.

I know folk get upset about this but it's something you learn over time. Why enter the tar pit?
