Windows 7: Upgraded motherboard and cpu to a z170 ar, i7 6700k, high dpc latency

Windows 7 Ultimate N x64
Upgraded motherboard and cpu to a z170 ar, i7 6700k, high dpc latency

After upgrading to a z170 ar and i7 6700k from a i5 3570k and z77, im getting extreme audio drop outs and very high dpc latency (used to constantly get 30 dpc, now its constant 200 with jumps to 2000!) Any idea what the issue can be?

Windows 10 64 bit

That is the type of motherboard chipset I have and CPU. I use my system for my recording studio and no dpc latency problems.
Download and run the free Resplendence Latency Mon. Probably will show what/where the problem is. This is the utility most of us with recording studios use.
