Hi,

I build my own computer maybe 6 months ago and i have an issue :
95% of the time i'm in a game, i have some freezes.

I checked what happened with the task manager and here is what i noticed :
At each freeze i have a huge peak for the "Copy", "Copy 1,3,4", "Cuda", but not fore "Copy2,5" in GPU. Juste before i seem to have a decrease in "Graphics" and my GPU utilization and GPU memory go to 100%. I noticed also that in the same time, my ethernet goes very high (>500 kpbs).
This schema repeat itself every 25-30 sec approximately.

With OCCT i noticed also that my power imput seems to go up and my GPU power down (less sure about that).

I first though that the problem was my power unit (not sufficient ?), but when i play with my ethernet connection pluged off, its all ok. All ok in every charts too. Less utilization and heat too i think.

Here is my configuration:

Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS information.

PSU: make, model, wattage, age, condition (original, new, refurbished, used)?

Disk drive(s): make, model, capacity, how full?

Post directly here and not via a third party website.

[Note: It appeared to me that the website wanted to scan my pc and not simply provide the results of your pc's scan. I did not click anything and left the website.]


What games are you playing?

Look in Resource Monitor as well to learn more about what your system doing or trying to do when the problem occurs.

Process Explorer (Microsoft, free) may prove helpful as well.

Could be some program running in the background and trying to update, backup, or simply "phone home".

Thanks for the reply. I updated my computer configuration. It appeared that the website does not keep in memory the config yes.
PSU : Azza 650W (https://azza.gg/azza/products/power supplies/650W). It is a new one.
Disk drives are half full so no worries.

I don't play a lot, but currently SMITE (MOBA) and F1 2021.

I'll check these programs and do some tests today !

Thanks !

Hi !
I didn't found any malware or virus.
I maybe found 1 software that induces freezes while udating. Need to confirm it.

But anyway, is it not strange to have huge freezes, because of updates ? How is the computer not capable to support this ?
