I have recently put together a new PC, after my last one bit the dust, and all is well apart from the audio. When listening to any audio, be it streaming or music stored on my PC (even system sounds!), I get crackling and popping noises all over the place; it's very irritating. The other issue, which I assume will have the same root cause, is horrible sound delays while watching Youtube. It only takes a few seconds before the audio is well out of sync with the video. This is any video, any quality. I hope someone could please help me with this. I have searched online for fixes, but so far none have worked. I will post my components below. Thanks.
O/S - Win 10, fresh, clean install.

CPU - AMD A8 7600
RAM - 4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz
