While playing online games(BF3 or Rift), every 10-20 secondsish the entire screen just freezes up for a split second. This doesn't affect video's or voice communication. Everything just freezes up for a split second then goes back to normal. The actual FPS is great and looks fine but these studders/skips are driving me insane!! I recently upgraded my 1GB GTX 460 because of this issue and it has not helped. I tried recording a video to show the issue but the recorded video does not capture the freezes. My specs: CPU: Intel i5 2500k @ 4.3Ghz MB: ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 RAM: Patriot Sig 2x4 DDR3 1600 PSU: Antec 650w Earthwatts GPU: 2GB MSI GTX 670 SSD Patriot Torqx 2 64GB OS: Win 7 Pro 64 (licensed) Connection: 60Mbps x 5Mbps Here's what I've tried so far: Installed all the latest drivers for my GPU after removing the old ones in safe mode with Driver Sweeper. Also ensured the on-board video card is not being used by disabling it and uninstalling those drivers as well. Installed latest drivers/bios for Mobo. Removed overclock on CPU. Formatted & Installed Fresh Win 7 Pro 64bit + All windows updates. Swapped SATA cable between PSU and SSD. Installing the game on a different drive. Swapped RAM from slots 1&3 to 2&4 Turned VSYNC off & set my Nvidia settings for performance Tried running the game in low-render mode w/ everything cranked down(dx9) C: Windows\system32>sfc /scannow Beginning system scan. This process will take some time. Beginning verification phase of system scan. Verification 100% complete. Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations. Ran Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool: No Errors I'm starting to lose my mind - Any suggestions?
