weird windows lag/freeze

Hey,

so I came across this strange issue recently; every now and then, around three or 4 times a day my PC would "freeze" its very noticeable when listening to music as it sounds like a scratched CD that can't play part of song and gets stuck repeating small chunk.

I am running 4.7ghz 4770k + oc'd 970 but my hx860i should handle that easily.

I ran prime for 8 hours overnight(fair to say room got hot :P) without errors or bsod.

ran kombustor for 2 hours no problems.

ran p95 on 7 threads and tried to replicate the issue, and nothing.

I did install new RAM, 2 dimms were used but I've ran 5hours of memtest with no fails.


Any ideas?

Have you tried saving your settings and reverting to stock? Just to see if there is a difference, I know OP says that your PC is stable, but you never know.

NEVER use Kombuster or anything of the Furmark sort. They damage the hardware and draw an immense amount of power that is far more than you card would ever pull. It'll easily and happily draw another 50watts or more compared to other benchmarks.

Stick with 3dmark or Unigene benchmarks for the GPU and Cinebench or OCCT for the CPU.

and bad driver installs could cause the OS the stutter/freeze. Could be a bad GPU driver install. that would be the first one i would look into

I know but thats exactly why I used it over occt, I wanted to test maximum extreme conditions and if I break it in the process then thats my bad, ran at 70C and around 108% powerdraw all the time so doubt I damaged any caps, mosftets of vrams. but normally would run occt to test psu and cpu.

All drivers are fine, haven't made any changes in at least few months.

lol :P

but srsly, I found that in most cases it occured when I opened a new tab in chrome while having spotify or youtube.

so far I know its not hardware or drivers and will look into software side of things, starting with changing browser and see how that turns out. I limit most processes I never use + monitor useless junk on startup so that shouldn't be an issue.

Run stock settings. No overclocks at all. If that doesn't fix it then I suspect flash is effed.

It might be DPC latency - try running latencymon.

Hmmm it appears you might be right, any clues on how to fix this? atm am using asus xonar dgx with the 3rd part drivers since I had issues with asus's drivers, like countless others.

any help appreciated

Using the unified drivers? I had constant issues with DPC latency with these. I even tried the low latency option on install but it didn't fix it.

I had to go back to the original drivers to fix it.

Sometimes SATA drivers can cause this issue and I think I fixed an instance of this by uninstalling both and installing them back in different orders.. I know it's a mess.

I seemed to have constant issues with Xonar drivers.
