So i bought a pc recently and it's causing me trouble.The setup is:

ryzen 5 3600

16gb ram

rtx 2070

b450 aorus mpsu

psu seasonic S12III-550 80+bronze , 550w


The problem is I've got autio interference from other components inside my case.Whenever I move my mouse around I hear a sound or whenever I scroll,move a window around,whenever the cpu/gpu gets louder so does the sound inside my headset,another problem i've encountered is when im playing a game on max settings my gpu is making a buzz sound,but whenever i for example press the window key to get out of the game or alt+tab , the buzzing sound and the sound inside my headset stops until i get on the windows screen from the game, then starts again.I've tried different headsets,jack ports , other mouse/keyboards,the problem is still there.The keyboard+mouse+headset im running atm is not causing anything on this other pc so im guessing it's something hardware related.

Im thinking of getting in warranty psu+mobo+gpu , is something else related to that ?

The sound in your headset is EMI, you fix that by getting an external DAC/AMP or audio interface.

The sound coming from your GPU is coil whine and changing parts will not fix it, it is not a defect, that just happens with electronics.

My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

if you want to get a DAC, the SMSL M2 is great for its price and its very compact aaaand it only needs one USB connection

I think I tried some sort of adaptor , didn't try dedicated video card tho.

Should I even bother sending the GPU in warranty cause of the coil whining or they won't care about it ?

Also , will getting a different sound card degrade from the integrated sound that I've got on that mobo?(only gaming)
