My System Specs

Default Xonar Essence STX - Crackling/Popping

I'm currently using an Essence STX with a pair of Sennheiser HD555's on Windows 7 64bit. While playing games, I hear either a popping noise, as well as occasional crackling sounds. I tried two different headphones, and well as trying various options in the Xonar Audio Center.

I've tried many different settings in the Xonar Audio Center, as well as three different sets of drivers. I've also tried moving the soundcard in the case, first using a PCIe x1 slot, then switching to the bottom PCIe x16 slot, away from my GTX 480. The issue happens using both the Headphone Amp and RCA Out.

Any insight would be much appreciated, as this only happens while playing many different game titles, but never during movies or music.
