Question Microphone possibly causing my game to lag

Dec 19, 2019
Hello all, I've recently come into a persistent issue wherein my microphone might be causing my games to lag, even though this doesn't make sense to me. I have a Blue Yeti Pro, and my PC is running a Ryzen 1600 with 8gb of (2666?) mhz ram with a GTX 1060. Basically, I've connected my mic via USB to my PC, however the connection that connects to the mic is very loose and will fall out if jostled too much, causing me to re-plug my mic. Every time I re-plug my mic however, the instant I do, my game starts to lag, so I can't really find any other reason for this to occur. The games I'm playing are not intensive at all, consisting of games like League of Legends and CSGO, so I don't think these are coincidental lag spikes. For example, my framerate in CSGO goes from around 300+ to sub 100 fps while feeling much worse than even this stated fps. This issue is only resolvable by restarting my pc, which as you can imagine can be annoying mid-game. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
