    Crackling/Popping audio, high DPC Latency from iRST drivers

    deiga

      Hello all,

       

      I have a very strange problem, when I install any iRST driver newest or older ones my DPC Latency goes through the roof and as a result all my audio is crackling and popping, whenever some sound is playing.

       

      My PC:

       

      Windows 7 64-bit SP1

      P67 Extreme4

      Vertex 3 120GB

      i5-2500K

      Asus GTX 570 DIRECTCU II

      Corsair 750W AXEU

       

       

      I've done a complete reinstall of windows and tested with only the iRST drivers installed (10.1.0.1008)

       

      My second (resulting) problem is, that without the iRST drivers my boot takes about 9mins and shutdown takes a few mins too.

      With the iRST I have a normal 45sec boot up.

       

      Has anyone encountered something similar or has any idea, how I could fix this? An updated driver from Intel would be cool
