Question Speaker noise through all I/O's of my computer. (even on contact with USB slot with the 3.5mm jack)

Jul 12, 2020
There is a constant crackling sound through my speakers when it is connected with the computer. This issue is mildly replicated on my headphones as well.

  • This issue persists with some reduction in noise when connected to the monitor (which is an HDMI connection directly to GPU)
  • This is not isolated to just the speakers, headphones also replicate this issue.
  • I have tried to disable and uninstall almost all drivers in isolation to validate. I have also tried latency software's and there was no significant variance found.
At this point I am wondering if there is something wrong with my new MB. (ASUS TUF GAMING XT570 PLUS)

Disclaimer: I built the PC. Potential for errors.

Does any has any direction on how to troubleshoot this issue? Much appreciated.
