RE: AREA 51 R2 & USB Audio Device Issue

I'm using Windows 8.1 (64 Bits).

I've try 3 sound cards :

- Propellerhead Balance
- Focusrite Scarlett 2i2
- Roland TB-3 audio output

Drivers up to date of course, no problem with my old PC. I've try USB Strorage devices on the AREA 51 and it seem to be OK. Also no problem with the internal sound card (no EMI/EMF static). But I want to use an external sound card (better ASIO, Digital-to-Analog Converters) coz I'm a musician too.

When I move my mouse, each time the cursor move over an icon for example (or a window border), the sound dropping & crackling (it's numeric, and not static like a radio).

I'm wondering if the problems don't come from Windows 8.1 interface, because moving the mouse over the background doesn't affect the audio. Really strange (my old PC is on Windows 8.1 too).
Maybe the graphic card can cause this issue ? (I'm on 3-WAY SLI GTX 980).
