Default Pseudo-science alert!

This chip is covered by a gold-plated shield, and all the audio section is physically separated from the other circuitry by a line that glows in green (there are some green LEDs at the solder side of the board, near the semi-transparent line). These features reduce interference and helps the audio section to achieve its nominal signal-to-noise ratios.
Did you really intend to suggest that a green glowing line blocks electromagnetic interference?

That's what Gigabyte suggests.
Actually, the shield around the audio chip does that.

Just clarfying, what blocks EMI is the separation of the audio circuit. This line is a point with no contact between two parts of the PCB. The light is just decorative.
