So just as the title states, my computer lags ever 4-7 minutes for about 20-45 seconds then comes back. This is only during game play(swtor). Had no problems at first, game worked fine. Lag started up so I adjusted settings down to minimum. Seems to work for about an hour or 2 then it came back. Ive updated, uninstalled, reinstalled drivers. Uninstalled and reinstalled audio drivers, found a conflict and that seemed to work for about an hour. Each time it works for a few hours and then it comes back. Installed CCC from ATI. Worked great after I installed it then started stuttering so I turned it off. Game ran smooth for about a day. Issue cam back. Ran malwarebytes, TDSSKiller, antivirus, etc. Everything came back clean. I first thought it was System Idle Process or a problem with it but I put Task Manager on my second screen and waited for the lag spike. Nothing jumped up. System Idle process jump in usage at the end of the lag spike so it's doing it's job I guess. I'm completely lost. It also will lag while playing Counter Strike Source but only once in a while and I have to kill CSS in order to regain functionality. I've tried searching and I can't find anything specific to my problems. Sounds goes choppy, FPS goes from around 95 to .5 for those few seconds. Help...
P.S.: Temp is fine. Computer has plenty of airflow. Running water cooled CPU, sits at 40oC fully loaded. Vid card sitting at 57oC.
