Annoying system stutter/lag

Hello guys,

I am in need of your help, I upgraded my old system with pretty much everything new and now it has random points in time when it gets like one-half to one second of lag.. If i'm listening to music you can hear it go bzzzt for that period of time, same thing when watching movies or shows..

This was a fresh build, fresh install of Win7 Extreme x64..

tried to increase the CPU voltage to 1.3V still got lag..

Any ideas guys? thanks!

Parts include:

ASRock extrem3 Gen3 motherboard
Intel core i7 2600k
16gb ddr3 gskill
OCZ agility3 240gb ssd on sata3
3 WD 500gb hard drives on sata2
