    Welcome to Seasonic USA
    520w model.

    I bought everything new except GPU and RAM. Month later I bought new GPU also, now only RAM exist from old setup. But I think my old computer still has same crackling problem, just bought some cheap gpu and ram for it after building this one.

    The power supply is probably not the problem.

    With both PC's doing the same thing I wonder if some software you have installed is causing this. Did you try the new PC before you installed anything other than the basic Windows OS and drivers?

    That is relatively quite a bit for a new PC.

    AVG is listed on recording sites as a "do not use". I don't know what all Steam installs.

    Should I uninstall and try without AVG?

    See if you can disable it, without having to uninstall it.

    Hmm, I think you can disable protection but program itself is still on.
    Uninstalled AVG and downloaded some other antivirus, nothing changed.
