Hi, I've just gotten a new mic after my last mic broke. From this video you can see the extent of what I am dealing with. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/164226080

I tried plugging my mic into the back of the computer into the 3.5mm jack. The mic is clear for about 5-10 minutes then goes batbleep crazy. I tried plugging it into the top of the desktops mic. Same effect. My headphones are plugged into a Fiio mix amp to usb but I also plugged my heaphones into the jack next to my mic just in case that was the problem. No luck. I then ordered a Creative Sounblaster Soundcard to fix it. Installed it fine. Disabled my sound drivers in Bios and installed Creative Software. Same static crackling occured 10 minutes in. Is it the motherboard? I also used an extension cord to plug my desktop directly into my bathroom outlet. Not sure if that helps. I've also tested the mic and headphones on a different computer and it is crystal clear.
