Windows 10: Annoying buzzing sound while in games

    Annoying buzzing sound while in games


    I have this annoying buzzing sound that I can't figure out why or how to fix it!
    I have Razer Kraken headphones which came with this cable that plugs mic + headphones to the same port. This cable are both connected to the rear of the PC.
    When I connect them to the front, the mic doesn't work. Only the headphones.
    When I connect just the headphones without the cable from Razer, then the same thing happens, only the mic doesn't work.
    I've tried updating drivers, etc.
    It also happens with my speakers, when the cable is connected to the rear. I put my ear near the rear of the computer and I can hear the same buzzing sound.
    I've tried changing cables but it didn't work.
    I also used other earphones that have a built in mic and the mic did not work for some reason...
    Like I said, it only happens while in games.

    I don't know how to fix this please help me.

    Have you checked for and cleaned out the finned heat sinks on the CPU and maybe on an add-in video card? I had a similar type sound in a computer, irritating as he!!, then one day I cleaned all 4 of my computers and the problem sound in that one was gone. I recalled that I was thinking that maybe the sound in mine was coming from the CPU cooling fan as an alert, could have been because the tiny internal speaker had come loose from the motherboard and running videos or heavy CPU usage programs could have been involved.

    My computer is pretty cleaned, opened it up a couple months ago and checked that no dust is there. This problem exists for a year or so.
    If it help, I got a GTX 970, i5 4460, MB H97 D3H

    If the problem exists since you have the computer or bought a new hardware, it might be EMI interference.
    I recall, how it sounds, it can be really annoying. The only solution would be buying a separate sound card.

    I bought a different cable, happens there too.

    I found that the name of this issue is "coil whine". Very familiar in the GTX 970 community...

    To test the headphones have you plugged them into your HiFi Stereo output jack if you have 6.5" to 3.5" adapter to make sure the headphone speakers are not defective ?

    I don't have a HiFi stereo jack, all are 3.5".
    The headphones work fine.
    Like I said, when they are plugged into those cables in the picture, everything is fine, but there's a buzzing sound.
    BUT, when I plug those cables in the front, then only audio works, not the mic. Also when I only plug the headphones, no cables, the mic doesn't work.
