Hi, I recently built this P.C. and have been experiencing delay/lag/bottlenecking or whichever technical term needed. This is my first build so I am not too tech savvy. Would you please assist me in determining the root of my problem? Here are some of the issues I have experienced:
1) Jerking mouse movements ( almost like 1-2 second delayed movements) with no CPU spikes.
2) Random CPU spikes which also leads to jerking mouse movements when I am browsing the web or playing games such as Left 4 Dead 2 or Borderlands.
These issues come and go. According to Speedfan 4.40, the idle temperatures are as follows:
Core 0: 37C
Core 1: 35C
The temperatures remain the same during the spikes.
Any insight to what may be the reason behind the bottlenecking or lag spikes, would be much appreciated.
