Weird crackling and popping sounds

I'm having this problem for a couple of months now, can't figure out what the problem is. I've deleted all audio drivers and reinstalled them but no succes. I mostly hear the popping/crackling when gaming, not so much listening to Youtube or Spotify. I recorded this video to show you what I mean: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UT61qrtC_fk&feature=youtu.be <- use headphones

PC specs that might matter:

CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K 4.2GHz Quad-Core Processor

Motherboard: Asus - STRIX Z270F GAMING

Power Supply: EVGA - SuperNOVA G3 650W 80+ Gold Certified

Headphones: Audio-Technica ATH-M50x

Check if these sounds are coming from the power supply. If not check all the fans in your system (including CPU and GPU fans).

Everyone was a noob at the beginning, don't be discouraged by toxic trolls even if u lose 15 times in a row. Keep training and pushing yourself further and further, so u can show those sorry lots how it's done !

Be a supportive player, and make sure to reflect a good image of the game community you are a part of. 

Don't kick a player unless they willingly want to ruin your experience.

Welcome to the forum

Remember to quote or mention the person you're replying so they'll see it

@Void Master @Tom_nerd

Things I need help with:

Spoiler

none atm

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

@Void Master No sound coming from the fans, but it's not hardware related I think

I was suspecting the PSU. But it looks like you have a noisy component affecting your audio some how, it could still be that your PSU is delivering dirty power. Do you have another PSU on hand ? Can you borrow one and test ?

Also, I'm not on a grounded outlet.

Hmmm that could be it too, your only solution is trying to get a DAC. You can also try both front and back panel jacks to see if that makes a difference.

@Void Master When I plug my headphones in the front I hear A LOT of coil whine and crackling

Seems like a part n your system is creating electrical noise, I suggest you get a USB DAC. It should solve most of your problems.

@Void Master Any good ones you can recommend? For not too much €

I am not much of an audio enthusiast, So I can't recommend you anything. I suggest you create a new topic specifically for this.

@Void Master I used my girlfriends USB headset btw, the popping still persists

HMMM, it sounds like the 5V rail on your PSU is dirty. I suggest you take it to a computer store where you can try a PSU and see if it fixes the problem.

@Void Master Still weird that you can only hear the popping on the right slider in the video, and not the left slider...

It may be the headset itself? Try 3.5mm headphones. They are better than USB headphones at the end of the day.
