Need help with latencymon and dpc again...

Hey there,
I received my new thinkpad and im not certain if i do the dpc tests correctly. I installed latencymon and ran it without any other apps active. I get a result of around 160us (i ran it for about 20 minutes). Occasionally i did get higher results though (up to 700us). but this happend only two times in about 20 runs. Is this something to be concerned about?

Now, im not sure if i was supposed to have my daw running alongside. If i do, things get weired. Latencymon still shows good results but my daw playback is full of dropouts on very low latency settings. But this is only with latencymon and the daw running. As soon as i stop the latencymon test, my playback is smooth - even at 8 samples.

Does this sound like the machine is ok? Sorry im such a noob with all this...

Yup, you're okay.
Please include the specific model of ThinkPad so others can benefit from your experience.
