    Am having DESPERATE trouble with my Asus A8V causing pops and clicks as soon as I do very much. I'm looking for a tool that monitors the activity on the PCI bus.... i.e. how busy it is when I'm running an arrangement. Protools has one but I cant find any simple utitlity on the net that will do this. Anyone point me in the right direction?

    Also has anyone had problems with clicks and pops by using RAID drives connected to the VIA RAID controller on the Asus a8v motherboard?

    Clicks and pops could also be clocking issues. We have a lot of ASUS MOBOs in our computers that we use on daily basis. We have never had a problem with them but of course our setup maybe somewhat different from yours so I can't say it could not be a problem. You could also have some background application running that is causing problems. We had one of our interns accidentally install a weather alert program and all of a sudden we started getting pops and clicks because this program was going on the net constantly to check the weather info and display it on the desktop. We got rid of the program and the pops and clicks were gone.

    This may or may not be what you are looking for

    Most PCI analyzers are designed to be used with a test card (hardware) as well as software and are usually pretty expensive.

    Best of luck!
