I don't know if it's something to do with overheating of my CPU or GPU, or even a problem with my network adapter
I will be playing far cry 3 max settings, and every now and then my game will start lagging like it's just stuttering, it replays the same noise. When I alt tab out my curse jumps every now and then of course there is no noise so i cannot hear the audio lag during this.
I worked out that by disconnecting from the network it fixes it, and remains fixed even if i reconnect straight away. This happens mostly while playing far cry but it has happened whilst streaming videos.
Any ideas anyone? I do not want to cause any long term damage to my system so I want to get it sorted asap.
