Hey, I'm asking about this problem for a friend as he hasn't been able to find any solution to this and it's been going on for some time now, he's getting really fed up of it.
He gets random lag spikes for 2 seconds when his PC basically bleeps a brick, it happens way more often when in a voice chat such as Discord or TeamSpeak.
When playing a game it rarely happens, it's the same result for any game, not really depending on how hard his PC is working for said game, this is when he is in voice too, if he is in voice and playing a game then it happens much less.
If he closes voice althogether he has no issues at all, maybe very rarely, he said he didn't notice anything at all with voice closed.
I don't really have any idea myself what this would be, it seems to be an issue with his PC as the same thing happens with all voice software, but at the same time I don't have any idea what that would be to cause this issue.
As for his PC, it's all fairly new parts, the GPU is new, 1050 6GB, he has water cooling. He thinks that the issue started before he got a new GPU, but he doesn't remember exactly when or have any idea of what might have caused it to start happening.

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.
