I tried Skyrim, Spec Ops The Line, Orcs Must Die etc.
In Skyrim and Spec Ops The Line the games freezes every 3 to 5 seconds. I get the stuttering even with older games like Max Payne 2 and Psychonauts.
All of these games ran fine (without stuttering) a few months ago and I have not changed hardware.
NBA 2K12, The Walking Dead and Batman Arkham City the frequency of the lag is a lot less and mostly playable, strange considering Arkham City and Spec Ops The Line run on the same engine.
The drivers are up to date. I have lowered the graphics and the resolution to the lowest they go, still get the freezing every few seconds. One thing I have noticed is my CPU idles (the CPU load goes to 0%) during the freezing/stuttering.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've heard reports of this not being a good idea - static or something. I don't use a vacuum because some just have a little too much power and it has a wide nozzle so you can't really direct air flow well.
You can get compressed air for fairly cheap and they are also good for blowing the dust out of your keyboards too.
