Maximus XI Apex EC Sensor Monitoring causing high DPC latency

Hi! I've recently bought a Maximus XI Apex. Everything it's fine, however when I run LatencyMon the program immediately registers spikes in latency caused by ACPI.sys. I reinstalled Windows and by means of process of elimination I discovered that enabling EC sensor monitoring in HWInfo64 is the cause of the spikes (I should have thought about that immediately because a warning popped up when I first opened the program). I've just read that it's a common issue with this kind of sensors. Isn't there any workaround? I'd like to keep on monitoring VRM temperature, CPU Current and CPU Power.

There's no other way how to access that EC sensor, that's due to its design.
