Good day. I bought an Asrock B450M Steel Legend because reviews are good especially the audio part but, that doesn’t seem to be the case for mine. When I plug my headphones to the PC using a splitter, it gives this staticky, scratchy sound and the audio is cutoff on one side of my headphones.

To rule out the possibility of a headphone issue, I plugged it in my phone(first, the headphones only and second, with the splitter) and the audio’s fine. I also plugged it into my monitor’s audio jack and I’m having the exact same issue as my board.

My primary suspect for this is my PSU since it is so cheap and the fan is making a screeching noise. (Inplay GS450pro)
