Hello. So I'm dealing with this problem for so long so far that I've decided to get rid of it, but I can't find any solution. That's one of very few computer problems that I can't solve myself. Games are randomly freezing to me for a moment and I have no idea why. I have a recent Windows installation (like 1 week old) and it happened to me before and also after the new installation. I have a new hardware and I really don't remember whether it happened to my on an old one.
My specs are:
gpu: gtx 1060 6gb
power supply: aerokcas-600
ram: hyperx 2x 8gb (3000MHz CL15, no paging file on purpose coz of big ram, paging file doesn't help)
ssd: Intel SSD 530 Series 120GB (system disk)
hdd: some WD 1TB
motherboard: gigabyte z270 k3 gaming
I've done some testing that led me to tune down CPU from 4.6 to 4.2 because Prime95 did stop two workers after a bunch of minutes and now it went fluently with a 3 hours test. Furmark is fine too, temperatures are good.
Also I recorded how these freezes look like (with a task manager opened, not much you can see there but at least we can see that disk usage is not 100% when the freeze occurs).
The movie shows that when the freeze occurs, it starts from around 80fps after it.
And today I noticed a strange behavior. I have two displays, and when I play CS:GO I can't move my mouse cursor on the second display without leaving a game or at least launching menu. But when freeze occured I'm 90% sure that I saw a mouse cursor on a second display (I think it was moving but not sure), and it disappeared when freeze ended. Help me, please!
