Ive been having this problem for the past few days. I will randomly get about half a second of freezing/frame drops and the game returns to normal. I have captured a screenshot of task manager when the frame drop happened. I have an EVGA overclocked version with OEM cooler.

Edit: I store my games on my HDD (D: )and software and windows on my M.2 SSD (C: )
I have also updated my drivers to 436.60 and the issue still persists.

I didnt have a reading on CPU Temp, but GPU temp was ~56c the whole time
RAM usage was nominal during the frame drop
SSD usage was nominal, but HDD usage spiked during the frame drop.

Thanks for the quick reply

full system spec? include make and model of the psu

cpu/gpu temp and usage during the game?
ram/hdd/sdd usage during the game?

malware scan?
Okay, new thing. I measured the time in between frame drops. Each frame drop is 5 mins apart (5 min 2 sec). But this time the gpu usage went to zero for more than a few seconds. Everything was super slow to load and eventually everything closed and showed a blank shaded desktop (Shaded like an application needed permissions, but no window popped up. Not even the taskbar was there and had to do a hard shutdown.

I really need help because this is starting to worry me now.
