Usually happens ~10 to 35 minutes into a game when I use an ability (Does not matter which champ, does not matter the ability) my audio starts crackling severely, but only when my screen is focused on my champion, and only when I am using abilities or when my champion is near huge minion waves. (When I hear the audio crackling, if I am on Skype (or any other voice client), my friends say that my mic audio starts crackling too.)
Now once this happens, I know I only have a couple minutes of sound left, and without fail every time, a couple minutes after the crackling first appeared, my audio completely cuts out. Whether I am using my Headset or my speakers, whether I am on Skype with my friends or not. Everything audio related crashes and dies (Including the Skype client). Including my mic if I am using a headset. But the game still plays fine apart from absolute silence.
When this happens I usually alt tab out and try to fix the issue.
I have tried:
-Switching the default audio device to which ever one I am not using.
[Results in "Manage Audio Devices" process not responding and me force closing it]
-Going into my Corsair Headset Software and trying to change anything there.
[Results in the process not responding and me force closing it]
-Disabling my device that I was using and re-enabling it.
I have never been able to restore audio or mic/Skype connection unless I reset my computer, then everything is fine till the next game I play.
-I have updated my audio drivers for my headset and speakers, as well as the Corsair Software for my headset.
-I have repaired my installation of the League client
This major issue has made it very difficult for me to enjoy League games (As I usually play with ~2+ friends on Skype). We have lost ranked matches due to the sudden lack of communication, and it is really getting on my nerves. No other program on my computer does this to my speakers/headset so I can only assume it is a problem with League.
Thanks for reading this over.

I have always thought that when I encounter a difficulty with my computer, someone somewhere has encountered the same one at one time or another.
I have searched many a forum for any help on this particular problem I am having and have found nothing. Honestly? No one else has had this issue?
