Intel i7-10700 with QuickSync Buzzing

I recently downsized my server due to power requirements (went from AMD ThreadRipper with a 1070 TI to an Intel i7-10700 65w with no dedicated GPU) and I am noticing that MCEBuddy 2.5.4 is messing up encodings now when I use Intel QuickSync. I am using the intel driver, I have tried the latest too. Basically while converting the recorded .TS file to .m4v, at some point in the movie file where it cuts from commercial the audio just gets stuck on a buzzing sound. If I disable hardware encoding, the same file converts fine.

Please advise.
