Need help solving unique issues, more detail in post

Hi, I'm all out of ideas, any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

I was playing some games in PCSX2 using a ps3 controller and motionjoys drivers for the ps3 controller, I know that motionjoy is outdated but it has worked flawlessly in the past for me and a couple of friends that have very similar pc specs. This went on for a couple of days untill I suddenly got a random BSOD. I didn't pay attention to that and continued on my daily pc usage. Fast forward to the next day and my pc got two BSOD while i was playing a game in PCSX2. From that day on I've experienced these issues. I've uninstalled both Motionjoy and PCSX2, the BSODS are gone, but not the other issues.

Issues:

PC SPECS:
(Listing everything in case it could help)
Monitors: (left)Benq GL2450 and (right) Samsung S24F350H.
CPU: i5-4690k OC @4 GHz
Motherboard: Asus Z97-A
Ram: Corsair Vengeance LP 2x4GB 1600MHz
GPU: MSI GTX 970 Gaming
PSU: EVGA Supernova G2 750W
SSD: Samsung 850 Evo 250gb
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Keyboard: Func KB-460
Mouse: Mission SG GGM 3.0
Microphone: Samson Meteor

Steps Taken to resolve these issues
1 Made sure that I have the latest drivers
2 Reinstalled usb, graphics and audio drivers.
3 Tried new cables and different usb ports.
4 Reset my bios to factory defaults.
5 Checked temperatures, they're all acceptable during intensive and idle tasks.
6 Scanned all my drives with Malwarebytes and Bitdefender and it is clean.
7 Tested ram with windows memtest tool and memtest86. No errors.

I apologize if I've posted in the wrong topic, I couldn't find a more suitable topic. Let me know if I should clear something up or give more information.

  1. what do you mean by background noises? could it be the microphone?

    Do you have latest bios? if bios set to factory settings, did that remove overclock?

    have you got these for keyboard? https://support.func.net/support/solutions/articles/4000046344-func-kb-460-settings-software-1-16

    Does monitor light turn off or does it seem to go asleep?

    I hear static crackling sounds, sort of like static tv noise but more crackling and in short bursts.

    I've the latest bios and it did remove overclock when I reset it. Currently I'm still at 4Ghz OC because cpu doesn't seem to be the issue here.

    I've tried the func drivers too, it didn't solve anything.

    Monitor is still turned on.
  3. First remove any overclocks, testing on non-stock settings is just adding extra variables.

    Did you try a different keyboard to see if that one also locks up for a few seconds?

    Check the video card in another system to see if the monitor blanking happens there, or a different card in yours?

    Maybe power supply issue, maybe motherboard, could be an issue due to the overclock maybe CPU damage. You have done everything except test the hardware and a clean Windows setup.

    Where is that sound coming from? The speakers? Power Supply? Somewhere else?

    The sound is coming from my headphones. I don't have a pc that I can swap parts with so I will reinstall Windows 7 and post an update sometime today or tomorrow.
  5. I am thinking you may have a motherboard issue, noise from headphones = audio jack, on motherboard.
    Keyboard locking up = USB jack, on motherboard.
    Monitor blanking out = PCIe port, on motherboard.

    It may not be that, but all those things that are going wrong are tied into the motherboard connections. The other side is that your motherboard and components are fed by the power supply, something wrong with the power supply, this can also happen.

    I've reinstalled windows and I'm experiencing the same issues. I think that you're right about the motherboard since pc would probably just crash if it was a psu problem. Also my psu is about 10 months old while the motherboard is 2 years and a couple of months old.
