So i have been annoyed by an issue recently which is sudden lag spikes (that last from 0.1 second to maximally 1 second) Ive also seen that my cores arent greyed out (not parked i guess)
(There are 3 dips ingame that are also able to be seen on this pic above)
But the weird thing is, i get 100+ fps straight but when a bit of action comes around (aka: me being supposed to shoot an enemy) it spikes to 0fps for the time mentioned above (theres no set time it always differs a bit) Ive attached a screenshot of the CPU's in resource monitor so you guys maybe are able to recognize this issue.
CPU : Amd Phenom X6 II Black Edition 1100T GPU : Sapphire R9 280X 3gb RAM : 8gb Corsair Vengeance DDR3 Dual Channel (DRAM Freq: 534.4MHZ) Unganged

More aboutcpu dips playing person shooter
What game? Slow ram mixed with what is now a pretty weak CPU with a strongish gpu....
Although CPU drops are odd. Could be power. What is CPU and mobo?
Game is Ballistic Overkill, pretty simple shooter but as i said i usually get 140fps+ straight.
Cap it to 60fps (or whatever monitor refresh rate is)
I'm.also thinking that ram is hurting. 1066mhz is woefully slow and will hurt under intensive CPU load
