Ever since I installed my new 2500K, I have been getting these monstrous 20-30 second pauses in Windows 7 every 1-2 times I use my machine. It typically only happens once during the entire time my system is running, but it's annoying enough to bother me.
I'm thinking it could be either:
A) Unstable OC (unlikely since it's 100% stable the rest of the time)
B) C300 firmware (0006)
C) AVG Virus Scan
D) SB Idle Bug?
As I said, A seems unlike to me as it's 100% stable through about 3 hours of Prime95 and 50 runs of IBT at max stress. Plus, the system doesn't BSOD, it just hangs for about 20-30 seconds and then everything comes back to life. Oddly enough, the mouse still moves around! It's just that nothing can be clicked.
B seems like a possibility, but an unlikely one as I have had months of perfect usage on this SSD on my 1055T before I made the switch
C seems like a likely scenario. I hadn't noticed it anytime before, but just yesterday, I noticed that the SECOND my system came back from hanging, the "AVG Scan has started" pop up appeared on my taskbar. Makes me wonder if AVG changed something in their scan to make it go all nutty or if it's conflicting with something else...?
D doesn't seem right because I was under the impression the SB Idle Bug cause BSOD's when sitting at the desktop idle.
So what do you guys suggest I do?
