Hi, I recently changed my PC ( New : CPU, MB, Ram, SSD and case) and I'm having some troubles.
I noticed that I can hear some crackling, hissing, static or whatever you wanna call it noises in my USB headset ( Razer Kraken). I tried a ton of fixes and tweekings found on google about static noise but without success. This noise was coming only when I was playing CS:GO, but not in the menu, only after a map was loaded. So I decided to open my case and listen to my pc. Then I found the Problem : The GPU was the culprit (?)* because in Cs:go it has to push above 200 fps and that's why I was hearing the noise only in gameplay. So I googled about this and found out that this sound is called "coil whine" and is pretty much normal, or at least is not unusual.
So my questions are :
1.Would an USB-Hub make the coil whine dissapear or at least not noticeable in the headset ?
2. The gpu was fine, also the headset with my old Motherboard. Could be the new one the reason for the problems ?
3. This is a difficult one to say : Would a new PSU make things better ? The old and actual one wasn't having compatibility problems with the gpu, but who knows...
4. I tought about an external Sound card, but those don't have usb conections. Are there some alternatives ? (preferably cheap, I'm not a rich guy)
5. Any other ideas ?
