    Annoying cracking

    From time to time I experience annoying cracking sounds. Either in games, or watching youtube, it is the same sound! It sounds like rustling (a microphone bug, when you quickly move it, or breath inside, or when it loses connection - that sound, dunno how it calls exactly)... Imagine I have z390-i gaming, it has bigass EMI shield that you can't connect more than RTX 1060 "on a expensive motherboard which has in the name - gaming"... Yet I read sound cards isn't protected from EMI............... Enabling VRM spreadspectrum doesn't do anything... Is this normal??? I have pretty poor opinion of ASUS motherboards, I knew 500$ ones suffer from DPC latency issues. Mine is perfect on DPC it is only reason I went with ASUS on this one... But I won't be buying ASUS motherboards, because it seems like quality issues... Cracking sounds in 2019??? It is happening since I got it, but now more, but not in all applications, it is confusing. Although in HTML 5 games it happens all the time, again strange! It is not likely not a software bug, as I tried different drivers, OS install since I got this computer...

    Overclocking can cause this.

    It happens since I have the motherboard, even without overclocking!
    - tried update BIOS
    - install sound drivers

    I think it is probably because sound card has no EMI shield, despite half of the motherboard is one big EMI shield LOL!

    Is there anything I can try? I can't RMA, because I have chronic pain... And I don't think it is faulty piece probably, because ASUS has history of cracking sounds and no EMI shield for sound card, so it doesn't surprise me...

    This happens during downloads.
    Uninstall any 3rd party antivirus, antispyware, firewall and check downloading files and watching youtube at the same time.

    During downloads? Not using currently any 3rd party antivirus and it still happens. It happens since I got it. I read this motherboard doesn't have EMI shield for sound card, despite half-of the motherboard being EMI shield...

    Not downloading files.

    I Am annoyed most with annoying cracking during HTML5 content like browser games...

    Installing/uninstalling audio drivers also doesn't help!

    Is there a way on this motherboard to prevent sound card from going to sleep?

    I have chronic pain and these sounds drive me nuts...

    EDIT: also happens with VRMI spreadspectrum on, not sure if I mentioned this. But no idea if that would be any help for unshielded sound card! So it can still be EMI issue...

    It is still happening, sometimes multiple times in a row, I have asperger and I Am sensitive to sound, note enabling VRM spread spectrum doesn't help! I installed some realtek driver don't remember which, but it is not in programs and features - strange! Driver name: Realtek Semiconductor Corp. Date: 12/01/2021 Driver Version: 6.0.9102.1 Anyone know how to solve it, I would appreciate it.

    Thank you very much!

    I advise you a sound card, the Creatives are well supported in updating for Windows.

    If you uninstall the Realtek drivers and try with the Windows drivers named "High Definition Audio" which will install automatically after uninstalling Realtek to see if the crackling persists
