    Audio popping and cracking

    My build System Builder - Core i7-6700 3.4GHz Quad-Core, GeForce GTX 1060 3GB 3GB GAMING, Zondda-B ATX Mid Tower - PCPartPicker

    I've had issues with my build since I built it 2 years ago. I replaced the gigabyte motherboard once, same issues. I got audio popping and its very annoying, sometimes more than others. It seems to happen the most on online videos youtube, twitch, netflix etc, but also on saved files. Doesn't seem to happen in video games.

    Here is a youtube video which for some reason replicates the popping very frequently and easily: Star Trek TNG Ambient Engine Noise (Idling for 1 hr) - YouTube

    Tried on all internet browsers. If I play this for about 30 seconds it's guaranteed to give me some audio popping, whether rear or front audio. Interestingly enough if I download the youtube video and play it locally on my computer...I get the same issue.

    I've tried all different audio drivers, I've tried just about everything other than updating my bios. I'd love to solve this problem. Tried latencymon doesn't show anything huge. Thanks!

    "Disable sound enhancements" from audio settings?

    That doesn't do it. However it turns out turning off "Fast startup" solves the problem LMAO.
