Video card tweak to adjust default latency (Improve performance)
  Nate   (further information)
its a program to fix the latency given to various hardware by the motherboard. the higher the number you give to a hardware (e.g. a graphic card) the more priority it will have from the system. Does no harm if you won't start playing as a fool with it. Before use the program carefully read all the help and follow step by step instractions. Why use it? if you have sound glitch problems and no driver can fix try to give more priority to your sound card.
PCI latency tool is not specially for soundcard , as a matter of fact , u cant choose what latency u give. latency stands for delay (to boost ur graphic card etc.) with other words: refreshrate. this shoul be between 64(lowest) and 426(highest) ive put mine to 100 and my games run smoother than it was 264(standard)

Best practices for resolving LtcyCfgSvc issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with LtcyCfgSvc. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
