Why does my audio get static in it if I leave my PC on for a while?

I have Audioengine A5+ speakers and an Audioengine DAC, but I only use the Realtek crap built into the motherboard. If I leave my PC on for a few days, any audio will be punctuated by a small "jump" of static about every other second.

If I turn the computer off and back on, they are back to working fine. Turning off the speakers and/or DAC does nothing.

Thoughts?

My headphones do that if I use a jack near a case fan.

If you're not using headphones than yea... it's ghosts.
