So, I had this issue about a month back where primarily while browsing the internet my audio would crackle. I did some searching, ended up finding a bios tweak that fixed the problem. Now, it's started up again and seems to happen while browsing the internet, or minimally while playing a game. Using the Creative X7 sound blaster with all 4 upgraded op-amps (problem was first fixed with bios tweak before op-amp change, changed them about 2 weeks ago) and Fidelio X2, Akg K712, HifiMan HE400i, Klipsch Rp160M speakers and jvc thg300 receiver. PC: win 10, i5-4690k 4.2ghz, MSI gtx 970, 16gb ram. With music I'll use foobar with wasapi event yet the problem is present in spotify, streaming movies/shows and playing games. Thanks for any feedback.
