'Dropouts' on 6500

I am nit picking here but when tuning across the band I hear momentary ‘dropouts’ several seconds apart, sort of a very short duration ‘scratching’ sound, rather as I sometimes had on my Flex 5000.  I assume it is computer related, although I have a new installation of Win 8.1, 8Gb RAM, i5-2500K CPU @ 3.3GHz, and not too much else running in the background.  Monitoring the CPU usage it is generally around 8% normal receiving, increasing to around 20% as I tune the receiver.  Seems not to be affected by multiple slices.  Any ideas?
