Windows 8 DPC Latency Solutions?

By Tyharo ·
I noticed a few weeks ago that my audio was popping so I did some investigating and found that my DPC latency was jumping. I just did a fresh install of Windows 8 and found that the DPC was lower but not by that much. I've tried looking for solutions to this problem and have only found one and that is to disable dynamic tick. Using latencymon I notice that my DPC shoots up from time to time but no as much as it did before I did a fresh install. Are there any solutions to this high DPC issue and is Microsoft working on fixing this issue at all?

I found a few websites that recommend disabling: Intel Speed step, Intel EIST, C1E, and the High Precision Event Timer.
I'am running an i7 and I use this computer for gaming (I use the intel i7 auto overclock that comes with Ivy bridge) and school work. Is it safe to disable these items?

Malwarebytes Pro website blocking is bugged with select hardware. I disabled the website blocking feature until its patched. I'm getting much lower DPC level (normal DPC).
