Audio Dropouts

I'm at a loss as to why I keep getting audio dropouts during playback and recording. I'm using a pretty decent PC with Win 10 and the newest stable version of reaper. It comes without warning and happens without any plugins on any tracks. It recently dropped audio while recording with only one other track in the project. I do not get any spikes in CPU usage when this occurs. It just pauses for a moment and then resumes. I'm using Saffire Pro 40 firewire with the well established TI chipset. The computer is not connected to the internet, it is a standalone dedicated recording machine. I am at a complete loss. Also, just to make this a little longer, I'm not a genius when it comes to this PC recording stuff I've got more analog experience than PC DAW knowledge. Please help ya'll, it's annoying and embarrassing when I have to ask someone to stop and start over.
