Noisy Interface - Need Help

Hey all,

I've just built a new Desktop Computer to use as my studio rig.
I'm using a NI Komplete Audio 6 as my interface, it worked perfectly with my old laptop and made no hissing/beeping noises of any sort.

Although as I plugged it in today and switched on my monitors (Yamaha MSP5's) I noticed a beeping and hissing noise that sounds also a bit like static,
I tried all the different USB ports and tried moving all the cables away from any power, tried different USB Cables and updating firmware on the interface all to no avail.
The funny thing is I've got some Logitech's plugged in to the headphone output of my interface which are putting out none of this static noise at all.
I've read that a powered USB Hub might fix this, do you guys have any other solutions?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Incase anybody has a similar 'hard drive noise' type problem like this I've ordered an olimex Usb isolator, will post up results when it arrives

My interface wouldn't connect with the Olimex Usb isolator even with its own power supply.
ended up buying a focusrite scarlett 8i6 and a behringer hd400 'hum destroyer' (The Scarlett wouldn't connect with the Olimex aswell) there is now no unwanted noise. Hope this helps somebody out there
