Win10 Home latest build

I recently upgraded the motherboard, processor and got a new simple audio system, a Logitech 2623 two speaker+subwoofer setup.

For some reason now, whenever I play games fullscreen, and the actual audio in the game kicks in, I get a buzzing in my speakers. I can remedy this by twisting around the audio plug in the green jack in the back port, but I reeeeally don't want to have to do that every time I play a fullscreen game.

Prey, for example. It goes through all the logo videos then the menu with no distortion, but when I load up my save it starts right up at the loading screen. If I exit back to the menu it ceases and goes back to the slight (if putting your ear right to the speakers) standard white noise hum. But with Madden 20, the buzzing starts right as the game. Nioh, it happens when hitting the main menu, and stops when the game goes off. Could it possibly be a power issue since none of the indie games I have do this? It's only in the more demanding games that this seems to happen.

This has to be something to do with Windows 10, right? Could it be a grounding issue with the speakers as well? They're connected to the same power strip as the rest of my components, so I'm wondering if that could be the issue. I have DFX as an audio enhancer. I have tried seeing if that could be the problem, but it doesn't seem to matter, as neither does changing my realtek drivers to the stock windows hd device ones either.

So, this has to be some sort of software issue in Win10, right?
