Sources of noise:
 - cooler fan from laptop;
 - conditioner air;
 - too much gain from mixer;
 - volume fader too high;
 - compressor too high.

Try reduce gain and volume.

If there is noise with gain and volume off then try DavenLC's solution.

Sometimes there are driver conflicts.

Its possible your PC Fan noise is bleeding over.   You can try using a different Mixer or disconnecting PC fans one at a time to see where the noise is being generated.

Do you have the mixer plugged into a USB3.0 port?
