Infuriating mouse freezing with SLIGHT load

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey all, my gaming/audio production rig specs as follows
i7 5820K 4.0GHZ
16gb ddr4 ram
MSI X99 Gaming 7S
R9 290x 4 gb
I game with a Corsair K70 lux rgb and a logitech G600. I have a really annoying problem that really gets in the way of so many things. Very often, even with very minimal resource load, my G600 will randomly freeze( mouse cursor, everything) when i move it or click something. sometimes for 2-3 seconds at a time. but how often it happens it the random part. sometimes that will happen every 10 seconds sometimes once in 5 minutes, sometimes every 5 seconds. Not only in gaming but also in my audio DAW. I will be dragging something and after i click and drag the mouse freezes, and when it unfreezes i am way off from where I want to be. To test another mouse, I plugged into my gamign rig, my little microsoft Sculpt Mobile mouse i use with my laptop. And it also froze when gaming, albeit for shorter periods of time ( 1/2 to 1 second instead of 3 seconds with G600, sometimes no freezing just chopping). meanwhile, I get 60+, even 100+ fps in all games I play, and in my audio DAW, my biggest project is only using 40-50% of cpu/ram. Anyone know what could be a problem? I was temped to get a different mouse, perhaps the corsair equivalent, Scimitar. But if I am getting similar problems with another mouse around the house, maybe It's not the mouse

bad usb port probably - I was going to say cable on the mouse itself until you said two different mice do it - which generally means usb port is RIP

I tried already all other usb 3.0 ports. I just realized that this is the third problem ive had with usb peripherals. the first two were fixed by using usb 2.0 (which uses diffferent drivers) instead of usb 3 port.
I have 8x usb 3 ports and 2x usb 2. My audio interface had dropouts in usb 3, plugged into usb 2 and it hasnt had problems for a year. My K70 was freezing in usb 3, plugged into a usb 2 hub plugged into my last usb 2.0 port, no problems since. I just plugged my mouse into that same usb 2.0 hub, and will let you know results. maybe its the "ASMedia usb 3.0 controller" driver that runs usb 3 ports

3rd party USB Controllers can cause all sorts of grief and if you're running Windows 10 it's not needed

are there MOBOs that use first party for usb controller? ASUS? also what do you mean if im running windows 10 its not needed. im using windows 10
EDIT: just looked up most popular ASUS mobos as well, and they all use ASMedia for usb 3 as well

Windows 10 supports USB 3.0/3.1 natively. I don't think USB 3.0 Controllers are necessary although I could be wrong. What I was meaning by third party was non-Microsoft controllers. As you'll know, they come as a part of the operating system and USB ports obviously wouldn't work without them. Windows Update might be automatically installing those ASUS USB controllers, which could be a pain

Edit: The only Windows version(s) that require a USB 3.0 controller is Windows 7 (and earlier) due to it not supporting them natively. They'll simply run as USB 2.0 ports without the controller. Windows 8 introduced native USB 3 support, I believe.
