    Firstly tell me, Is your audio through the MB drivers or via GPU ones.
    You have two variables. Try changing one back to stock and then flip it (OC-GPU + CPU stock, then OC-CPU + GPU stock).

    Remove all overclocking (if you haven't already done so) and see if the buzzing and flickering stops.

    You may have damaged the Graphics card. How are the speakers connected to the PC ?

    The graphics card could be ok, it might be getting too hot though, we can check that later.

    So we can see what hardware you have in your PC please download and run this and post the text it outputs into your next reply :- https://static.techguy.org/download/SysInfo.exe

    There is NO safe overclock. ALL overclocking entails some degree of risk. I have a rule; do not overclock with parts you cannot afford to replace. As long as you understand that concept, overclocking is fine. I overclock everything except my home theater system however IF something fries, there is no one to blame except me.

    If your speakers are connected using the green port on the motherboard, you are not using the video card audio. Your overclock may have had nothing to do with the problem. Have you tested temps and voltages? If not, do so; specifically the cpu temp, 12V, 5V, and 3.3V values. Unfortunately there is no monitoring software on the support page for your motherboard. ECS is not a quality board maker such as asus, gigabyte, or asrock [they have monitoring software for download] You can try using hwinfo64 [free download]

    As a very quick test to see if the problem is your motherboard or software/driver, boot the system with a linux live usb. If the audio works fine under linux, then your motherboard is most likely ok. If you have the same problem under linux, you fried the motherboard audio. There are a LOT of linux distros to choose from however I would use either linux Mint or ubuntu. Either one will setup all of your hardware for you. Note linux live does not make any changes to your hard drive; it runs from ram.

    Your temps are ok however it does not show the 12V rail. Try using hwinfo64
    https://www.hwinfo.com/download.php
    Your motherboard is not a performance board so you may not be able to monitor your voltages however try hwinfo64. Once you install, open the program and click on monitoring>sensor status. Scroll down to where you see the 12V [should be under motherboard] Take a screenshot and post here; not on a third party site. Most people do not like to click on unknown links. Here is an example of what you should see;
