Sound cracking under windows 7 with a new MOBO

Hello guys i built a new PC with these parts:

  • : Intel Core i7 3.4 2nd. Gen.
  • Motherboard: Asus P8P67 PRO
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Video: nvidia 9500 GT
  • Audio Card: Omega STriker 7.1
Windows 7 32bits ultimate.

However when i install a windows update the sound cracks for a few seconds, why this happens? i mean the processor is fast enough, why the bus still collapses?
