Whats wrong with my computers audio?

When plugging in any headphones to my computer is produces a slight static/buzzing noise to be played through them. I tried using my 3.5mm front/back port, along with plugging my DAC into each USB port with the same result. 

 

When I'm playing nothing the sound is hardly noticeable, however, when I play a game, the static becomes louder and sounds nearly like an electric shaver.

 

I've also tried reinstalling and updating all my audio driver, with no luck.

 

If anyone knows what's going on, any help would be highly appreciated.

CPU: Intel i7 4790K

Motherboard: Gigabyte z97 HD3

Might add this later...

then either your psu or your gfx card have shielding issues, as well as the motherboard. 

 

Those "static" comes probably from your gfx card, I guess that due to the noise getting changed under gfx stress. 

 

 

2 Main Systems (mine and my late wifes): AsRock Fatal1ty Z77 Pro, Core I5 3570k @4300, 16 GB Ram DDR3 2133, some SSD, and a 2 TB HDD each, Gainward Phantom 760GTX. (one of those got a Gainward Phoenix GS 1060 if I had waited only a month longer ^^) 

 

On the Road: Acer Aspire 5 Model A515-51G-54FD, Intel Core i5 7200U, 8 GB DDR4 Ram, 120 GB SSD, 1 TB HDD, Intel CPU GFX and Nvidia MX 150, Full HD IPS display

sound like electronic interference 

ask me about your system builds, AIO's, CPU's, PSU's, and GPU's.

I've had this PC for about 2 years, would there be any reason it would just be happening now or any way to fix it? Thanks

clean your pc get all the dust out if that doesn't work unplug your pc fans if that works just replace them. if nothing have worked this far just get an external sound card 

ask me about your system builds, AIO's, CPU's, PSU's, and GPU's.

Already have an external sound card (FiiO E10K) and it does the same thing, but I'll try cleaning my PC.

no that's a DAC (digital to analogue converter)
