Weird crackling and popping sounds while gaming

By merijnsmits ·
Hi everybody,

I have had this problem for a few months now that I hear popping and crackling while gaming. I've been Googling for 2 days now but I can't find a solution.

Here's what I mean: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UT61qrtC_fk&feature=youtu.be <- headphones recommended

As you can see this only happens with the right slider, not the left. For example, I only hear the popping and crackling while gaming, not while watching YouTube videos or listening from Spotify.

What I have already tried:
Drivers reinstalled (Windows and Realtek)
Tried both audio inputs (frontpanel on my case and directly in mobo)
Used USB headphones instead of 3.5mm
Ran LatencyMon
Other audio format used (bitrate)
Grounded electrical outlet used

PC specs that may matter:
CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K 4.2GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: Asus - STRIX Z270F GAMING
Power Supply: EVGA - SuperNOVA G3 650W 80+ Gold Certified
Headphones: Audio-Technica ATH-M50x

I really hope someone can help me
