    Help fixing DPC latency causing sound cracking whilst gaming

    I've built a new PC (i5 6600k, GTX 970, 16 GB DDR4 RAM) that's cost me a lot of money only for it to have to have loads of sound cracking whilst gaming.
    I've already had someone else on another forum have a go at fixing this but they couldn't get to the root of the problem. They believed the problem was something to do with my storage subsystem.
    Anyway, I've done the usual recommendations. Updated Bios, disabled my network drivers, uninstalled realtek audio and disabling CPU states and all thing related in bios.
    Anyway, I was hoping someone on here would have a crack at it and hopefully end this nightmare for me.

    Here is the CPU.etl file:

    I hope someone can fix this. I'll even reward them with a steam gift card or something along those lines for their efforts.

    What is on the link exactly? Don't want to be clicking on potentially dangerous websites. How will it fix my problem? The address doesn't indicate anything to me so I'm being a bit cautious.

    Avoid ASIO4ALL. Its a 50/50 chance it will screw up other things on the PC. ASIO is only needed if the WDM does not work. However, that is not the problem with a PC sound card. ASIO4ALL was designed to fake the PC into thinking a sound device (intended for older recording studio interfaces) had an ASIO driver.

    Wi-Fi is a known cause of the crackling problem. Sound and Video drivers are another.

    Run the free Resplendence Latency Mon (updated for Win 10) and see what it shows.
