Default The front panel audio static problem

So the motors, processor, drives, ram, and basically every part that has a lot of electricity moving through it or creating a oscillating magnetic field is sending an EM field that is creating static in my front panel audio.

Apparently, moving the cable away from these components fixes the problem, but the front panel audio cable runs from the top of the front of my case to the back of the bottom of my case, so there is no way that I can avoid all of those components.

So what can I do? Is there some kind of shielding I can get?

My case is the Antec 900

This problem seems to affect a lot of people who have the Antec cases

Get an extender, and wrap it outside of the motherboard.

FRONTX - Webstore - Cables and Adapters - Audio & Multimedia (second one down)

I have an Antec P182. I never had this problem.
