Periodic lag/freezing and no max performance? - Page 10

post #91 of 152
Its his PSU. I suspect somehow power provided or received is inadequate. Thats what would cause spikes in game performance too, and he hasnt changed it in new pc, so its gotta be it

Actually v sync is off.
The PSU is Cougar CMX 700W v2, that is more than enough isn't it?
New mobo, no playing with bios, latest drivers etc etc.
Sometimes I experience lag while surfing internet, like when moving the mouse it feels like the PC stops for a sec then moves again, but part of the move didn't show up. IDK if you can get what I mean.
Also, sometimes when I type it feels like it's a pentium system as there's a weird lag but only sometimes. If I type the word " pentium " for example, the letters " pen " appear, then a momentary lag and " tium " appaears all at the same sec.
The two previous lags occur rarely so IDK.
Thanks for all the help.

my experience is either PSU or RAM ... have you tried to go to safe defaults in BIOS?

First of all, I apologize as I think this is in the wrong section, but I couldn't find a " help section " to post in, so please bear with me as this problem is driving me up the wall and this computer is like 3 days old only.
So I've built a new PC, specs :
CPU : Core i5 3450
Mobo : Gigabyte P61A-D3
GPU : GTX 560 Ti
RAM : 8 GB DDR3 RAM
HDD : 1 TB HDD
PSU : 700 Watts Cougar
So I've been experiencing a periodic lag, which I noticed both normally and in a game ( Crysis 2, which is the only game I've been playing since I got this ). The computer freezes for a sec, then goes on. Also it occured in Crysis 2 twice, once it froze for a sec or two then continuted, the other time the FPS dropped from constant 60 FPS to something like 45 FPS for a sec or two then returned to 60 FPS.
Also one time the computer totally froze and I had to do a reboot from the reset button.
I tried updating the GPU drivers to latest, same problem.
I think something is wrong and I'm not getting the max out of my PC, as it runs Crysis 2 on 50-60 FPS ( and sometimes drops to mid-late 40's ) only on 1280x1024 17'', V-sync on and hardcore settings ( and the benchmarks shows that it runs with better FPS on max settings and full HD, so I believe that indicates something is wrong ).
Thanks in advance and all help is appreciated.

What OS are you running? I had similar issues with WIN 8.

700 watt psu should be enough

It doesnt matter if 700w is enough, a faulty psu is a faulty psu, and it could very well induce the kind of instability you are experiencing

Ram has been changed, it isn't RAM.
Bluelighting, V sync is off like I mentioned in the previous post.
So a faulty PSU can actually cause such a weird problem? Like there are PSU's that fluctate for only a second?

I can go with a possible psu problem as I said before, but have you checked to see that all fans are working and have you checked the temp of your cpu to make sure your not overheating? just trying to offer some suggestions before you spend money on a psu and even after you possibly have the same problems. nothing worse then that.

yes psu could be the problem if its not supplying correct power to the gpu or cpu and it can happen.

have you checked to make sure the bios is updated maybe there is a new bios that will solve the issue ?

as well make sure that your power pins are fully plugged into your video card a loose plug could cause faulty power as well

I have an EVGA GTX 560 Ti and a zotac GTX 560 I did experience some of the same issues on 1 of my three computers with them and in the end the only that that solved it was the new drivers which were just recently released. but since you have updated those I cant think of anything else expect a voltage issue, either in the cards software or as the others have said a bad PSU.

make sure your on board video is turned off, make sure in bios your set to use the Pcie as initial display,
