So I've recently built my first computer . Everything went smooth. I did notice however that the speakers crackle and pop from time to time when I use things like YOUTUBE or anything streaming mainly. Not so much when I just play a regular MP3 on Winamp. I'm beginning to think it is the realtek hd audio drivers ( which I reinstalled a few times to no avail ) and I was wondering if its possible to get a completely different audio driver other than the one recommended by the motherboard website ? Help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
(note, its not the speakers, I have tested them out in other computers and they are fine )
