i have a recently built PC and for awhile now I've been experiencing lag spikes that freezes everything for about 1-2 seconds and goes back to normal.
when i get a lag spike I've notice the audio from my monitors speakers distort but not my headset. On most occasions my computer gets noticeably louder during these lag spikes. A few times it has black screened and come back on, as if the display port had been disconnected and reconnected, when this happened it crashed the game being played.

I have gone through device manager and updated every possible driver and even downloaded nvidea experience to get the drivers it provides.
I have also monitored temps and they have not even reached 60 when playing games on max settings.
I am not overclocking.
I am using wifi.
The issue occurs when playing games and browsing not sure if it happens while idle
Not sure if its related or coincidence but windows 10, my browser and the games that I've noticed the issue are all on my SSD not hard drive. I'm sure it sounds like its the SSD but I cant be sure as I've not seen any issues with it yet as the lag is the only problem i have with my computer
