Fix for bad, crackling audio with installing radeon display drivers

Question asked by wewlad on Aug 26, 2019

Not a question but I have found a fix for a really annoying issue.

Desktop Build:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600

GPU: Sapphire RX 5700 Pulse

RAM: 16GB DDR4

Motherboard: ASUS ROG STRIX B450-f

PSU: Corsair TX 650M

Cooling: 2 case fans/ AMD wraith stealth cooler

OS: Windows 10

BIOS: American Megatrends 06/08/19

After I installed my display drivers, I used to have frequent bluescreens (video tdr failures). These seemed to have fixed themselves updating to the latest version of windows.

However I was still stuck with a crackling audio, after a lot of troubleshooting and asking around someone suggested I changed the PCIE slot mode in the BIOS under onboard devices to Gen 3.0 mode instead of auto (which was probably defaulting to 4.0 for the card). This fixed my problem.
