    I forget 1 important thing, i tested nvidia hd audio using display port and connected it to my monitor. While having onboard sound card disabled in BIOS. I have same cracking noises! SO IT IS NOT EVEN SOUNDCARD!

    Well this is so annoying, it will hard to pinpoint the issue. I don't know for what component - i should claim a warranty!

    It could be still motherboard i guess, i have no idea. Or i read on ASUS forums - nvidia gpu could cause that. But that was due drivers i think. I tried both linux and windows with no drivers. Same issue.

    It could be a damaged cpu i guess, cause motherboard overvolted vccio to 1.328v max and vccsa to 1.224 max. I didn't know about it until recently. And since i ran Foldinghome, which is highly demanding, it could damage the cpu in combination.

    Could be a faulty psu too, i guess? Some people said... I have corsair RM650x 2018 with 10 years of warranty, so i would blame it on psu last. Still i don't know. Maybe i will have to take whole rig to a computer shop, it is annoying, but i have no idea how to pinpoint the issue!

    No it is for display port as well, i used it on valve index no problem! You probably had microsoft oem drivers automatically installed.

    So what is strange, i tested this on 2 computers and 1 laptop. On 4 headphones and i have cracking noise on each on them. This is during seeking, in video player. All computers have different video player. I don't know about this, as this is maybe even normal. It happened to me from time to time, but not as often. I will yet test gaming on my old computer, if i have cracking noises in games too!

    On my main computer, it is in multiple games, i get cracking noises from time to time. This never happened to me before.

    Because cracking noise is across 3 computers, this got me scared as hell. If it is electricity, there is nothing i can do. But i had never problem with that. That it would start from the blue sky - strange.

    i see the z390-i also has the intel i219-v lan just like on my xi hero.that lan card can cause lots of dpc latency spikes due to the interrupt moderation in the advanced driver settings.
    you can try a newer driver or also check in latencymon to see if you have spikes because of tcpip.sys

    I already tried that and no dpc latency! 100us max on average. My audio has 5us dpc latency

    It doesn't happen in linux, i need to test it yet more thoroughly. But i already watched couple hours video and it was fine. On windows it happened couple times per hour in video playback. I am suspecting right now Windows. Perhaps i will have to repair update, or reinstall if it helps, or make second install.

    Btw i doubt that's it, but how do you prevent sound card on z390 motherboards from going to sleep, there is nothing in Device Manager. And in i put dword in regedit and no difference.

    Hi,

    You have an ASUS ROG SS3 motherboard, so :

    You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3 MB) from the first post of this thread.

    Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process then your INSTALL process, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow your UPDATE process.

    Once it's done, regarding your popping issue, follow these 2 TIPS (also visible at the bottom of the first post) :

    1) Disable hibernation :

    - Right-click Windows Start button then click Search.
    - Search for cmd. In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt and then click Run as administrator.
    - If/When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
    - At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate off and then press Enter then close the Command Prompt

    2) Enable MSI (Message Signaled-based Interrupts) mode on all your supported devices (see the column "supported modes") with MSI Mode Utility (Right click on "MSI_util_v3.exe" > Run as administrator), then Apply, then close MSI Mode Utility & restart your PC.

    Hello,I have exactly the same problem with my maximus x hero.

    I had cracking sounds time to time for the last 2 years but last month this problem became huge and I can't understand what causing it.Maybe some windows update?

    I tried all the solution from Mokichu but nothing works..This problem is driving me crazy and I can't use my computer anymore.

    The problem is hardware or software?I was thinking to RMA my MB but I see that all Asus board have this problems..

    Please someone help solve this problem..

    Hi,

    It seems to me that it is nevertheless clear :

    So in your case, all the "msi" boxes except for the 2 x Intel Serial IO must be ticked then Apply, then close MSI Mode Utility & restart your PC.

    Hi,

    If that was not enough to fix your issue, try by disabling PCI Express Link State Power Management in your power plan to avoid L0s/L1 state of PCI Express power management mechanism (Windows Control Panel > Power Options > Change plan settings of your current power plan > Change advanced power settings > PCI Express > Link State Power Management : Disabled) or by switching directly to the High performance power plan (Windows Control Panel > Power Options > High performance).
