One of those classical problems.
When playing games FPS drops down to 3-5 for ~1s and then comes back up.
While that happens, HDD emits a 'crackling' noise.
I know it can be any number of things (slow HDD when accessing pagefile/spyware working the the background etc.etc.), just wondering if it's normal that it truly happens completely randomly as in, it doesn't matter how much action is happening on-screen?
Sometimes you can be standing still and this stutter still happens while there may be a ton of effects and action happening and it works just fine.
