Hello there I have a pretty bad issue that popped up recently with my sound I was hoping I could get some help with.

I want to start making some lets plays on various games but any time I record my gameplay using fraps,OBS,Action or anything else there is a lot of static noise in the audio. Its very distracting and its to loud to upload any videos like this. This only started happening this past few weeks and I can't figure out why. Its only really noticeable In the recordings But not while I'm actually playing the games.. For instance While I'm playing the game I can't really here the static unless I turn the volume up really really loud and even then its not very noticeable But when I go back and watch the recording of me playing the game its extremely loud on the recording.

I tried muting my Mic and that didn't help at all.
I tried updating my Sound drivers and that didn't help at all.
I tried disabling all the other audio devices by right clicking my audio icon of the task bar and going to recording and playback devices and disabling any that I was not using and only left the speakers and microphone enabled.
I opened my pc case and cleaned out all the dust bunnies with an air can as it was really really bad with dust and gave it a check over to see if I noticed anything obvious.. Other then the loads of dust I blew out I noticed one of the two fans on my GTX560ti GPU is really stiff and does not turn.
I re-routed all my cables to the computer and wrapped some of them in plastic cable wrap and moved my powerstrip farther from the computer..

But the issue is still there and I am stumped..

I built the Pc myself alittle over a year ago I guess, here is some info on it:
Windows 7, 64bit.
Asus Sabertooth x58 Motherboard ( just installed the realtek HD audio drivers as I noticed It was using generic drivers but that didn't do anything to help my issue)
Intel i7 950 bloomfield
12G ram (6x 2G sticks)
Antec 750W PSU
MSI GTX560Ti ( Noticed one of the fans is really stiff and does not work anymore)

I uploaded a quick video that shows the noise I'm talking about to youtube:

If anyone could possibly help me out I would be extremely grateful as I am really stumped here, I have never had this issue before and its keeping me from uploading any videos..

EDIT: Ok I did alittle test Muting the mic via the the mute switch on its cable does not fix the issue so then I disabled it in the Recording devices on the computer and that seems to stop the Static noise. So Is this my microphone or some kind of interference when its plugged in???

Also I forgot to mention Im using Turtle Beach x12 headset to record with

EDIT #2: Ok well I thought maybe there was interference from the USB plug because the headset uses a usb cable to power its self and also uses the standard audio jacks. I took the usb plug and using a usb adapter plugged it into the wall outlet of my house and it lowered the static by a good bit then I went into realtek CP and checked the noise cancel setting and now my recordings seem to be crystal clear.. So as a warning to anyone with turtle beach headsets you might want to do this.
