Yeah, the title says it all as it is kind of hard to dumb that down any further.

Video of the audio issues

I ran OCCT's "PSU Test" in the background while I was listening to music and after about 5 minutes of letting the test continue, the choppy-ness started showing in the headphones. I recorded it with my phone so you could hear it (The issues do not become any more or less apparent when the headphones are at a louder volume.

After recording the issue, I went to the kitchen to grab a drink, and when I came back, my computer screens were off but the fans on my system sounded like a jet taking off. It turns out that my GPU had reached 90+ Celcius during the test and I didn't realize it. I reapplied thermal paste to the GPU and that was it. I thought the audio issues had stopped but no, still going strong!

I am going to give as much information here as possible to see if I have missed anything:

My USB headset is a Razer Nari Ultimate and I am using Razer Synapse 3 to customize settings (EQ, Surround Sound, etc.)
The audio issues do not show in the "Razer Nari - Chat" output, but are still very prominent in the "THX Spacial" and the "Razer Nari - Game" outputs
The headset is plugged into a front (case) USB 2.0 port, but the issues are persistent in the front USB 3.0 ports, and the motherboard's rear USB I/O ports (USB 2.0, 3.0, and 3.1)
My name is Michael (testing to see if you're still reading here)
I have reinstalled all drivers for everything multiple times.
I have no other computer to test the headphones on.

What could I be missing?
