If it's only CS, I think it's your input in game.
It might be on quad stereo which causes a buzzing for me.
Just switch to stereo headphones in game and it should fix it.

Happened to me when I had my razer tiamat 7.1 but when I changed to cloud 2s it fixed. Might be headset?

Try a different pair of headphones first - if the sound is still cooked then it rules out the headphones


I've had issues in the past with new builds doing similar things; the later versions of the drivers had issues and installing an older one fixed it; these days Windows just downloads the latest available.
I've got the same motherboard series and generation just not the one you have; but I use a DAC not onboard sound; so i haven't tested it.

Remove the audio drivers - probably RealTek shit; from device manager "Sound, Video game and controllers"; try re-installing by right-clicking them when if it comes up as an unknown device and let it do its thing.
If thats no good - look up the specific version of the motherboard you have and download the drivers from their website (or get the model number of the audio chipset from the same page) and download them from the realtek website.

If that doesn't fix - either re-install Windows 10 or call up the computer shop and blame them

Thanks man, good to know I'm not the only one (sorry)
I rang the computer shop that built the computer and they said it sounds like a hardware problem, I'm just going to buy a 'vital zowie usb sound card'

entire pc built from centrecom, got motherboard elsewhere and they are blaming the board, how convenient

Classic move mate. I haven't used centrecom in years and won't be again. if thats the attitude they're giving.

You can get away with cheaper soundcards than that external Zowie one that'll provide just as good if not better audio if you're not opposed to opening the case and putting it in (just as easy if not easier than putting a graphics card in).

Good luck (and bad luck mate)

Do you think its a driver issue or hardware issue?
that thread tells me drivers/software, but the sound of my problem and what people are saying is its probs motherboard/onboard sound problem T_T
I will be trying all those methods tomorrow most likely, I doubt anything works lol.

Is this the motherboard? https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/Z370-AORUS-Gaming-7-rev-10

Does the sound cracks/buzzing only occur when an application that uses sound open? for example, it would be fine at desktop but as soon as you play a video/audio it would occur?

It could be either or man, if it were me I'd try fiddling with the drivers and shit before I went and spent $$$ on a new soundcard. I havent had a chance to read the thread yet, if i get time later I will.

That being said buying a DAC/Soundcard was one of the best things I've ever done and I'll never be going back to onboard audio

This talked about similar issue you are having. Some fix the problem while others had no effect on it.
