Sound lag causes issues with PC

  Wraybo 20:25 10 Jun 2018

After upgrading my CPU to a i57500 from an i36300(i think) I have come into a lot of issues with my audio randomly having a lag spike and then causing problems in spotify and lots of other stuff such as games. When it happens, it makes spotify pause the song that is playing and say it can't play the song anymore, nor any other song. Fortnite Battle Royale will either crash, lose all sound from the game or just lag a lot. Overwatch will either crash or spike a ton. And most games on steam will crash or lag as well, this means it is difficult to have fun playing videogames as they crash or lag every 10 mins or so. This also randomly stops sound aswell when watching youtube videos etc. Please help as it is getting rather annoying.
