Sry for the messy post, i copy/pasted from notepad. My internet seems to work fine, a friend told me that it could be my hdd or psu. What i still don't understand is how did it broke over night, i played bf3 every night 2-3h with a friend and everything worked fine.

Check what's going on with task manager. Under options select Always on top. Resize it and move to a corner of the screen as best you can. Keep an eye on the processes and performance as you use the PC.

ok i played for 5 mins each and watched a video on twitch and these are the results. the only one that seems to consume more resources is chrome its usually consumed 60-65% of cpu before this issue. it would seem that i fixed the stuttering buzzing noise in the videos but the games are the same. P.S. in bf3 there is no buzzing noise.

chrome cpu 95% RAM 60%

bf3 cpu 100% RAM 61%

euro ttruck sim 2 cpu 53% RAM 59%

CPU is flat out when running bf3, is there something else showing?

what should i be looking for? i played bf3 for a long time on this pc without issues like this and it worked fine 30-40 fps, it alwayes drained my cpu.

Look for something that's using the resources, check the hard drive usage, something that might give a clue to what's happening.
