Help please. Is this an PSU issue?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Long story short (believe me, I could write books about this) past 6 months I've had weird mouse lag/behaviors etc. but other than that, my system is running fine... BUT, yesterday I finally was able to narrow the problem down, and it's weird AF.

1. Whenever my components use more power, like putting power options to high performance in windows and graphics card, the lag increases/more likely to happen.
2. I enabled XMP for ram, and the feeling changed aswell. For the better, and worse.
3. I moved/touched the power cable that is connected to my PSU while the PC is on, and the LAG became either 200x worse, or 10x better.. so this leads me to believe there is something wrong with the PSU.
4. Also related to 3, my fps decreases/increases whenever I play around with the cable, aswell as how loud the audio plays.
5. If I change colors/google some colors like green and hover the mouse over it, it starts freaking the hell out.
6. Also when something is loading/working, the lag can increase.

Other than that, my PC starts up fine, I can play games etc. there is no weird lines or anything on the display, I have no blue screen of deaths etc. it's basically just the mouse being inconsistent as hell is the problem.. it basically keeps going up and down and all over the place instead of naturally following my movements.

Specs:

I5-6600K // I5-3570k
MSI B150 Gaming M3 // MSI Z77A-G43
16gb Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 // Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8GB
ASUS ROG Strix 1070 // MSI GTX 960
EVGA SuperNova G2 650W / Corsair TX650
INTEL 520 // Samsung 850 EVO
BENQ XL2411Z // BENQ XL2411T

Reason for multiple parts for specs is because I've replaced so many parts and none of them has fixed the issuee. So the specs above is which parts I've tried replacing. Is there any way to test further? Yes I have tried 10 different mice/ all USB ports across 3 different motherboards. - I have also tried 3 different PSU cables. They all change the feeling/the way the lag feels, but none of them fixes it.

In that case... yes, it is the PSU. TX series is even getting pretty old.

I replaced the TX long time ago, my current setup is a month old Supernova G2. I wrote the TX in because I also had this problem when I had the TX.. actually it started back then and just stayed like this forever.

I also found out few things afterwards.. when I touch some places of the case cover, changes the mouse feeling aswell... also when I had my hand on top of the frontpanel (although that stopped when I moved the case cables through a different path).

And lastly, when I moved the fan cable more away from both the case cover and the motherboard, so it's now almost laying on top of the cpu heatsink... so I'm not sure if it's still a psu issue or not. This stuff is so damn weird.

edit: nvm I should learn to read...

Any chance you have the dongle plugged in for the use of an Xbox controller? If so this is the problem.

I would have killed myself if I messed up like that tongue.gif I have nothing that is wireless. (or anything special plugged in for that matter)

Just making sure I had a Windows update and experienced the same exact issue you are having. Time me a few days to figure out what was going wrong and it ended up being incompatibility with the dongle. With that said though could be something similar but with some other driver incompatibility. Have you attempted a clean install of Windows? Start as lean as possible with drivers and test to see.

All good my friend. And yes. Here's a more detailed post about what I have already tried: https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc/comments/4vahxk/mouse_lag_weird_jerky_behavior/?st=iro0d2cy&sh=45ff9463

And a 15 pages long post aswell about everything I've been through including three people that has the same problem: https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/950944/pc-components/mouse-input-lag-is-killing-me/1/

I've been battling with this for months, really driving me insane... but a driver incompatibility could also sound possible.. but then again, I've tried several clean installations with different mice plugged in. Aswell as tried an old mouse through a PS/2 adapter. So unless the same driver keeps installing, I don't know.

Also I'm pretty sure (abit hard to tell) that I've had this problem in windows installation menu, BIOS, safe mode etc. none of them helps with making the mouse feeling "normal" it's like once it's broken, it's broken forever.

PSU is still my main suspect one way or the other.. Also just by google an image like "green" and hovering my mouse over it, sensitivty and inconsistency doubles x10... not sure what the eff is going on.

Also when I go into device manager and play around with USB stuff in there, like power management etc. also freaks out. wackosmiley.gif
