Hello

Thanks

Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS information.

Likely a loose connection: plug, port, some adapter, or even the cable itself.

What speakers or headphones are you using?

Inspect ports and plugs for signs of damage. Look for debris inside any ports being used.

Gently wiggle, test, and bend the audio cables from end to end to determine if you can cause the crackling by doing so. Especially near plugs and ports.

Try another set of known working (not crackling) speakers or headphones on your system.

Try your speakers or headphones on another non-crackling system or audio device.

Determine if the problem follows the headphones or speakers or if the problem stays with your computer.

Try swapping in other audio cables, adapters, etc. to determine if there is faulty cable or plug involved.

the first and last videos are more noticeable
There is a crackle and/or stutter during gameplay
I´m only running the game , nothing else when i play
Could a broken MB create crackling at so random intervals?
But this doesn´t happen anywhere else
Also tested BO3 (insane cpu usage , 100% ) and it never crackles
Unfortunately i don´t have another mb or headphone to test
I´ve ran latencymon and that is it , no crackles according to latency but it happens
Is there something else that i could do to ensure if it is the game or the motheboard? ( or something else)
I´ve inspected my computer and everything is looking fine(also no dust)

PC : i5 9400,1060 6gb,16gb ram , pichau nidus 500w , TUF B360 GAMING PLUS BR
My computer got hit by a lightning strike in january but the technical assitance store said that only the PSU was busted
I´ve extensively tested my PC through benchmarks and stuff and it doesn´t ever crash at all( no bsod , crash , restart nothing)
But this audio got me worried
Could the lightning strike actually cause some damage to the motherboard?
Thanks
