Is this able to damage my CPU?  

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
Hello.

I have PC problems or more specially mouse lag. More information about everything can be found here: https://www.reddit.com/r/pcmasterrace/comments/4x9ope/ive_been_trying_to_fix_this_everyday_for_over_6/?st=irrd91s2&sh=8c25f330

However my CPU temperatures are fine, the fps is also great and I'm able to run games at high quality without lagging. Aswell as stuff like prime95 and the usual stuff. I also don't have any sort of crashing and all. It's as mentioned, mouse related lag but it could be the PSU or motherboard.

So my question is if I decided to just ignore it and start playing games again, would it damage/shorten the life of my CPU/graphics card? Or what are the things they can get affected by?

Thanks.

They mentioned it might be a power grounding issue?

Do you use a UPS or anything to clean the power coming from the wall to the PC?

Have you hooked up the PC to any other house?

I use a power outlet extension that I have my PC and monitor plugged into. Other than that nothing.

I moved to this apartment 3 months ago and I've had the same problem both places. This all started happening after I plugged/unplugged USB mice all the time. So then after plugging in a mouse it just snapped and kept being like this. I thought the actual mouse was damaged, but same thing happened when I tried all the other mice.

quick question, have you reused anything between builds like sata cables, or molex>sata adapters of any kind? Any kind of power supply extensions or cd drives?

I've always used the SATA cables that came with the motherboards, so being three different motherboards I've used three different SATA cables.

No adapters used, everything is pretty straight forward a standard PC build. Also no cd drive. (Don't have a place for it in Fractal define s)

If you see anything feel free to point it out. (I've tried re-routing lots of cables since these pictures were taken, specially SATA ones and the audio cable.

That is a super weird one, has to be related to electricity given that you mentioned getting electrocuted at your desk.

You said you have changed houses, but I guess if you moved from an 50yr old house to another 50yr old house, they could both have old, dodgy wiring that is causing troubles.
Can you get a tool to measure the power consistency from the wall at your house? A surge protector isn't going to do much for you if the power is really inconsistent, in fact it will just slowly damage the surge protector and your PSU.

Someone mentioned a UPS, might be a good idea also, at least it will ensure that your computer is being delivered a pure, consistent form of energy.

-In this case, I would try thinking literally outside the box, or the pc case in this situation. Shut everything off, take the motherboard and all the components COMPLETELY out of the case and just rest the motherboard on the case box if you still have it. If you have to start it look at this video on how to "short" the pins (don't worry this is the exact thing the switch on your pc case does in order to turn it on)

-Also someone suggested trying linux, theres a way to try it "LIVE" without necessarily installing it to a hard drive.

What you do is you download the linux iso, for this example my favorite is linux mint cinnamon 64bit
https://www.linuxmint.com/edition.php?id=217

you then use a program like YUMI
http://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/

To mount the iso to boot from a USB flash drive, and boom, it boots from the USB but is a functional OS without touching anything on your hard drives unless you want it to.

-Also, I want a full list of every program you usually install after installing windows.

Tried any other extensions or wall sockets in the apartment?

Try latency checker just in case - it takes 2 minutes to install
Boot from usb as others have suggested
Move PC to a different place
Check to see if others are actually experiencing this or is it just you

I'm not sure from your description if you have the same symptoms as i had when i upgraded to Skylake. Erratic mouse behavior, stutter as if the pointer refreshes itself 10 times per second instead of 60 etc. Everything went back to normal when I installed motherboard and USB3 drivers from the driver disc and restarted the windows.

Have you installed your motherboard drivers ?
