Micro-stuttering/stuttering in all video games

Hello guys!

I have something I have no idea how to fix. In nearly all video games (an exception being the visual novels and such) I encounter this micro-stuttering issue. To see what I am talking about, I recorded a few days ago some gameplay on Assassin's Creed: Syndicate and there you can see exactly what I get while playing most video games (link below at the end of the topic). In the second I get stuttering, the fps suddenly drops a lot and after the stuttering it recovers back to where it was before. (for ex. in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, let's say 160, to 90, then back to 160 / just an example ) So it doesn't matter if I have V-Sync on or not. RAMs can't be the issue because some days ago I changed them (x2 4gb) with other RAMs (x2 4gb) (initially bought to have 16gb, but seeing the issue is still there, I took out the old ones). While having the new RAMs (put in different slots than the other ones), I have a LIL bit less micro-stuttering, but less FPS overall.

What else can I say? I tried a lot of stuff. Scanned for viruses, scanned for malware, defragged, scanned the HDDs, updated all drivers, scanned the old RAMs, cleaned PC for dust, made sure every cable is checked and put right and not loose and checked for Windows Updates.

I've run out of ideas, so I'm open to any suggestion. Looking forward to them, thanks guys!
