Small stutters and small freezes

  Thomas Christopher Davies 17:32 26 Aug 2018

Hey there,

for some time now I have this weird problem that I sometimes have short freezes. For instance when I type the cursor will just stop and for a second it will buffer my keyboardinput and just releases it when the freeze stops.

Same goes when playing, which is even far worse. When I play starcraft 2 a second of freeze is just unacceptable. I have literally no idea whats causing this. I tested my RAM with memtest, removed all harddrives except my M.2, tried with intel integrated graphics, tried different displays with different settings without success.

I use the latest Windows 10 Version. All drivers installed are from the manufacturers and windows is freshly installed

My setup is:

asrock z370 extreme4
Intel i7 8700k (not overclocked)
G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4-2300 DIMM CL16-18-18-38
be quiet pure power 10 600watt
MSI Geforce GTX 1080ti Twin Frozr
Main Harddrive is Samsung 960EVO 500gb

My last freeze even gave me the sound of USB disconnecting. I don't see any related errors or events in the event-manager of windows.

How can I track whats causing this down?

Could it possibly be the mainboard having some failure on hardwarelevel?

Cheers, Thomas
