I been having games stutter and audio also when the frame rate drops. This been happening for while now I have installed and uninstalled every driver, Even reinstalled Windows 7 from Windows 8, till I found out whats been the issue and I have now found it, its the Intel smart response that allows me to setup Raid 0 and link my SSD and hard drive together.
I have had this disabled for a day to fully test and I not had a single stutter or audio skip, so I tried other drivers from ver:10.8.0.1003 to 184.108.40.2063 and I still get the issue.
So I now stuck I really want to use the caching as it gives me 500mb/s read/write in return speeds up my system super fast, but this audio skipping is also spoiling games Is they anything I can do to fix this?
