When "Show OSD panel" is enabled, audio output exhibits clicks and pops intermittently, but appears to be multiple of 5 seconds.
With USB audio (DAC), the frequency is ~ once every 30 seconds. From headphone jack, it ~ once every 1 to 3 minutes.
It occurs when playing music from iTunes or VLC.
A simple way to notice this is to play a test tone, e.g., 1-KHz tone from a test CD.
So far, it's reproducible on multiple Dell laptops, latitude e6430 (i5-3340M), latitude e6410 (i7-640M) and vostro 1400 (T7250).
OS - Win 10 Pro (RTM - Build 10240)
When Aida64 is running with sensor panel in the background, there is random audio drops when I play any youtube video. It does not seems to affect the video, only the audio break up for a split second. Once the I exit aida64 in the notification area, the intermittent audio drop stop occurring. There is a particular order that it happens, Aida64 MUST start first and load youtube video next will cause it to happen but not vice versa. Sometimes playing xbox music in the background could trigger this audio drop, but it occur more often in youtube.

The motherboard support DTS output, and the optical cable is connected to a AV receiver. The receiver decodes DTS and the logo disappears whenever the audio dropout happens, so it is very annoying and obvious. This has never happen before, even when I play intensive games, the audio has never drop out. I kind of suspect it is due to the polling of the sensors and it is affecting the latency or DPC that could cause this.
I'm just wondring if someone can explain to me a little bit about the FPU test in AIDA64. Until now I've been running stress tests with CPU, FPU, and cache being tortured. As I understand it this is fine, but running an FPU only SST will applying the peak temperature to a CPU in order to show that it's capable of running under such circumstances without throttling back.
I've so far got a stable 4.2Ghz clock out of my 4770K and I'm going to move on (with a target of 4.4GhZ or 4.3Ghz). At my 4.2Ghz clock the machine was stable for over 14 hours under AIDA64's CPU/FPU/Cache test and hit a peak temp of 75Â°c (on air). It generally floated around 65Â°c-70Â° on all cores.
Following this I've just carried out an FPU only test under the same spec. It peaked at 90Â°c on core 3, with the lowest peak on any other core being 81Â°c. It didn't throttle (I believe the Haswell chips do this at about 95Â°c, TJMax is 100Â°c), but I stopped it after 15 minutes.
Now obviously the intention of a stress test is to put the machine under more or at least as much continuous pressure as real world use would. Although my CPU didn't throttle, those FPU test temps are a bit higher than I'm really comfortable with. I think I read somewhere that the FPU test uses AVX instructions, but I'm not sure if that's correct - truth is I don't know how it works to reach it's temperatures. But what I really want to know is how representative of real-world use is it? What sort of applications might push the CPU in the same way? Many? A certain set or applications in a particular professional field? Are the results of this test alone something I should concern myself with if I've so far considered the same clock to be stable and safe under the full SST for over 14 hours?
If it helps, I'm running Windows 7 x64 and will be using the PC for music production, meaning it's heaviest load in real-world use will likely be Ableton Live plus a good handful of VST instruments and effects (creating and processing sound in real time). Native Instruments VSTs will feature fairly heavily.
I just seen some untranslated and currently untranslatable strings on the dialogs to send on-demand reports to FinalWire. These strings are "Report submited successfully", "Detecting ACPI tables" and, one that I aren't sure if actually exists, a question the program may ask when runing for the first time: Do you want to generate a report of your computer and send it to FinalWire?
I decide to try Aida64 2.20.1800 and overall I am happy but I have latency problem with aida64 software when is running. That's in the moment when I am checking for the temperature in the system cpu,gpu.... aida64-->computer-->sensor. I am providing you a picture for the issue.
