Starting to get audio crackles!?

Starting to get audio crackles!?


I've just started to get and audio crackle which happens every minute or two. A few weeks ago my old PSU blew due to lightening and I had to have the PC re-built in a bigger case with a new BeQuiet Dark Power PSU. As far as I'm aware everything was working fine since but about a week ago I noticed some crackles in the audio. I only get these when I play audio from my DAW or streaming audio online. I don't get these crackles when I play an audio or video straight from the desktop.

So far I've tried the following :-

1/ Checked Windows 7 and all hardware drivers are up to date
2/ Ran LatencyMon to see if this reports audio issues which it does
3/ Tried disabling wifi which didn't cure the issue

I'm now wondering if the issue has been there since I had the PC re-built with the new PSU!? I can't remember hearing any audio crackles until last week though! Could anything have happened during the re-build that is causing these crackles? Is there anything else I should check? Maybe this is a hardware fault?
