I have a sneaky suspicion that if you booted from a Linux installed flash drive the audio problems would disappear. But it's only a suspicion.

Did you connect the audio plug on the mb to an audio cable of the case to enable usage for audio ports on the front of the case?

Is so, try unplugging that and instead plugging into the audio port on the back of the case by the keyboard and other mb plugs.

That would at least eliminate the case circuitry and front side plugs as a possible source of the problem.

And the last original component of this PC has been replaced.

I bought an EVGA 1000W GQ power supply to replace the original 1600W. After 9 years and 1 month it was the only original component left. I had an actual blue screen crash a week ago, and a few other sudden crashes that left me doubting the health of that old power supply.

That's a lot of juice. I don't think I've built with more than 850W. (My last five PSUs have been EVGA, and they've treated me well.)

Depends how quiet you want the machine. Most good quality PSUs won't turn the fan on until needed and if you only need 600W - 700W then it's going to stay pretty quiet for most of the time.
Also running them near their rated output makes them much less efficient.
