7th Gen PC Glitches

I've been having this problem ever since I built my 7th gen PC. Once the issues begins it doesn't go away until restart.

I have not been able to identify what exactly makes it happen. Sometimes it happens in csgo, browsing the web, watching Netflix, and even just idling.

Here is a video of this issue in CSGO with net_graph up so you can watch the VAR spikes and the FPS drops that happen with each video/audio glitch.

  3. Hmm, whenever I encounter issues like this I have a checklist (when you feel that the system is fixed, you can stop):

    Run CCleaner and do the Registry fix (if issue persists, continue)
    Roll-back ANY overclock (RAM, GPU, CPU, etc).
    Switch the RAM to different slots. Try different variations (different RAM, different slot, etc)
    Clean install of Windows. Watch Youtube videos or Netflix or whatever triggers the issue for an hour or until you get the problem to arise again.
    8 times out of 10 its the board. File for an RMA
    Still not fixed? Post back here.

    Thanks for the response

    I'll try some RAM Variations.

    The only overclocking I have done on the board is switching it from auto to XMP for my ram.
    (Can we call that overclocking?)

    I was having this issue using ASUS ROG Maximus IX Hero; when I switched to the ASUS Prime the issue did not show up for about 10 hours of uses (Which is longer then ever before on the ASUS ROG Maximus IX Hero board) but the problem still persists. I also did a windows 10 full reformat yesterday and I still have this issue.
  5. PSU is also a poor choice for high quality components.

    That IS quite unusual. I would back the RAM off (just for now)/turn off XMP. That is weird that it was working fine for 10 hours and started on a new board. If none of the suggested fixes work, I would reluctantly reinstall the OS. If you have a different storage system (a different SSD or HDD), try one of those. 99% sure its down to the OS, storage, RAM, or board.

    If it STILL persists, run the computer WITHOUT your GPU (use the onboard graphics) and see if youtube improves. Have this run for the day. We can narrow it down for SURE then!

    Cheers!

    That is also true. By chance, if you can swap this unit out, that could help!

    I put my parts in a PSU calculator and the recommended wattage was 403 W

    Yeah it's not about the sheer wattage, it's about consistent power delivery.
    Slightly inconsistent power delivery can cause those minor hiccups.
    I see it often in regular Corsair CX(no M) PSUs, but it's not that dissimilar from what's happening here.

    It's important enough that we keep track of them as to whether they're good or not.
    You'd want one from tier 1 or 2 for a system like yours:

    Alright, ill purchase a T1 PSU and let you know how that goes for me.

    As i'm surfing the web shopping for a PSU my computer just starts glitching out like in the video. My computer hasn't been on longer than 15 minutes...how does this happen. This sounds like a PSU issue?
  11. I've just installed my EVGA SuperNOVA 850 T2; hope this fixes my issue.

    Hey James,

    I purchased and installed my EVGA SuperNOVA 850 T2 this did not fix my issue its still happening.

    The only part in this computer that has not been replaced at this point is my CPU.

    I've tried 3 separate SSD; 2 Motherboards; 2 graphics cards; 3 PSU's; water cooling and air cooling; 2 different 2x 8g rams. Nothing seems to work...
    I've reinstalled windows multiple times. I'm at a loss at this point.

    If you have any more ideas i'm open to listen.

    Thanks
  13. Hmm... maybe... try Overclocking your CPU and also try underclocking your CPU.

    Or turn off any OCs you have running on the motherboard.

    OR go into the BIOS and force your motherboard to run all your stuff at stock settings (turn off auto OCing settings, manually put in what the CPU/ram is supposed to run at.

    Hi James,

    Everything is running at stock settings right now on my PC.

    I found a post that sounds exactly like my issue: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2574437/sound-audio-video-stutters-lags-glitches-moving-mouse.html

    The answer is apparently in task manager; turn off "Intel Technology Access Service"

    I will try that today.

    Thanks
