I was getting a stutter with my rig on a consistant basis, i can describe it like the sound skips/shakes for a brief second. Anyway i decided to do some tests and i found out the following. When not moving my mouse or moving it (even unplugging it), the results are still the same. I thought it maybe my Razer Copperhead but alas after messing with polling/dpi rates i concluded it wasn't. Basically after every minute/second the skip/shake occured in either Winamp (sound) or VLC Player (video). Min(s).Sec(s) 37.24 38.28 39.42 40.36 41.40 42.44 43.48 As you can see the skip/shake occurs after every 60 seconds+ 4seconds? What the... can anyone give me a clue as to what this could be as i'm pretty stumped?
