I had a problem with VLC audio hiccuping randomly, and while trying to determine if the CPU load anything to do with it using Microsoft Sysinternals CPUSTRES tool, I discovered the hiccups ceased when under medium to heavy load! My system has an AMD Phenom X6 and openhardwaremonitor showed CPU clocks as low as 800Mhz during normal operation, the hiccups occured while the CPU clock was throttled to a higher rate. When over half load, the CPU clocks stay at around 2GHz and no hiccups occur.

So, to make a long story short, I switched off AMD Cool 'N Quiet in the BIOS, which apparently limits CPU throttling to between 2.8GHz and 3.6GHz and have no problems since.

I can't rule out that this is a problem with my hardware setup and/or Windows 8.1, but worth giving a shot if everything else fails.

Cool. Looks like it could help a lot of people, definitely will use this if needed.
