Stutter/Lag when playing games and mouse cursor

Figured this is where this question belongs. I am having stuttering Issues while playing any game, occasionally my mouse does this laggy thing on the desktop but rarely, but when in game about 5 minutes into it the game starts acting like im having lag spikes, but it does it when playing non online games as well. Mainly Metro 2033 (most noticeable when a bomb goes off) and Counter Strike GO after 5 minutes or so.

When I originally had this problem I had used a program called ToolWiz which I would not recommend, it changes way to much and deleted things from windows. In any Case I reformatted my computer hoping it would solve the problem...It did not.

System Specs are as follows:
CPU: Phenom II x6 1090T
MOBO: GA-970-UD3
RAM: Corsair CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 4x4GB. Running at 1600Mhz . 1.55 volts
GPU: Gigabyte HD Radeon 7870 2GB Ghz Edition
PSU: Corsair something or other 700W
HArdDrive: Kingston Hyper X 3K 240GB SSD

Have a Hyper 212 on the CPU 4 great case fans. Idles temps are CPU: 29c 39c under load.... GPU 30c 47c under load

I used FRAPS when in CS GO to check FPS and normal I get about 120fps, WHen the glitching stuff started the fps never went below 90fps, so given for changes in enviroment, I would say FPS isnt an issue.

All drivers are updated. Going to run Memtest tonight, but doubt that I will see any issues.

  1. Okay so quick update. Im trying to get Memtest to boot from disc, but cant seem to get it to load at start up, (had similar problem when I installed fresh OS, had to do it inside OS)
    But was looking through BIOS settings, and saw some things that somehow got changed, switched it back into Ganged mode, and set Voltage on DRAM to 1.55 from 1.51. Didnt have an issue before with it this low but we will see, still trying to figure out how to get that darn memtest disc to load.
  2. Turn off cool n quiet in bios to stop your cpu frequency dropping, and anything else in bios that does anything like that. disable any overclocking if anything is overclocked. Start with that. your running 4x memory modules? sometimes that can cause a problem in some boards, and it may not show in memtest86+. you could try running just 2 modules and see what happens. the 970 boards dont have as much power supplied to the board as the 990 boards, that can be an issue if your oc'ing an x6 cpu.
  3. Cool and Quiet is off. Nothing is overclocked
  4. Turns out slot #4 on MOBO is going bad. swapped RAM out and tested that, then put old RAM back in testing slots 1 & 3, then 2&4, tested 2. 4 is bad. RMA MOBO
  5. I would not recommend
  6. Would not reccomend what?
