I also have the XPS 8500 and I'm having the same issue. Has it been ok for you ever since your fix? I'm upstairs so kinda need the wireless feature

I posted about switching to an external USB soundcard earlier. I thought it solved my popping/crackling sound problem, but no, it didn't... It worked for a while, it was much better than with the integrated sound card, but I still had these extreme (19000+ microsecond) latency spikes that could last for minutes. I also tried disabling almost everything (sound card, graphics card, usb, etc) in the device manager while looking at the DPC latency checker, and nothing...

Few months later it started to become really annoying, as the popping/crackling didn't stop. Basically, I turned the PC on, and within 3-4 minutes the crackling started and didn't stop until I shut the PC down.

Then I looked around on forums again, and I read that others had the same problem with similar Gigabyte motherboards (I have a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5). Somebody suggested that it might be a conflict between the Gigabyte Marvel SATA drivers and the optical drive (DVD-rom). Basically, you shouldn't plug your DVD-rom into any of the Marvel (blue) SATA slots.

So I plugged it into a non-Marvel slot, and suddenly no spikes. WTF!!! I'm constanly running the DPC latency checker now, and when I look at it after hours of gaming, it usually tells me that there was a spike, but I didn't notice it at all. So it's weird, but seems to be working. Hope it helps.

Actually, there's an easier solution. Simply uninstall the Gigabyte RAID drivers (GB36XX something in the device manager) and you don't have to plug the optical drive anywhere else.

press start key, type "msconfig" hit enter, go to "services", select hide all microsoft services, untill only 3rd party apps and add ons show, then click disable all hit enter, "restart" your computer, twice if you have to, then run your audio program and see if it still stutters. if it doesnt, then your problem is in your add ons and 3rd party apps, your welcome!11

I managed to find the solution on my XPS 8500 but I'm gonna have to contact dell about this as I'm not happy. My system has a 2TB HDD but also paired with a 32GB mSata SSD for caching purposes.

I had set the mode in the Intel RST app to 'maximized' from the default 'enhanced' mode. After trying every solution I could (updating drivers, rolling back drivers, disabling network adapters etc.) I then decided to set the mode back to 'enhanced' and what do you know? No more audio stutters for about 2 months now. Tonight I changed the setting back to 'maximized' and there it is, the audio stutters are back again and thus, confirming to me that this is the issue (for me at least).

So yeah, I'm gonna have to contact dell about this as I would rather use the cache device in 'maximized' mode rather than 'enhanced'.
