Yup exactly what I noticed. I currently think the cause is ethernet/ISP lines picking up the interference and I have some evidence to support that but need to test further.
only when you turn off the vents, the mouse starts to move a little differently, but for a while and then again how it was, but it started on me on the old pc where I didn’t change anything

Mientras juego y tengo Google Chrome abierto, el problema se agrava cuando el navegador está cerrado, cuando transmito en Twitch parece que llegué 2 segundos tarde, pero cuando probé la PC de un amigo con el juego, abrí Chrome y Estaba transmitiendo en contracción sentí tan suave y perfecto que no quería dejar de jugar xD

I don’t understand how it’s possible. A new PC doesn’t help, new devices too, a monitor, in another apartment, the same thing, how can it be inexplicable nonsense, the feeling that the PC is sick

I have asked in Facebook communities about the problem but it seems that in my country nobody has the problem or they are too stupid to realize that they are late or only happens to me because of the people I know nearby nobody seems to have the problem

Same, it makes no sense. Same ISP when you moved?
like Yes, but I was in another city for 100 km, and if there was an Internet problem it would be solved by simply disconnecting, this is complete nonsense what is happening

United States. We have good electrical regulations here, and it seems to me like most folks I encounter with this problem are located in places where infrastructure is definitely worst. Even still I have spoken to 3 from the UK, 4 from Canada, 2 more from the US, 1 from Denmark etc. So I am not sure what kind of scenario causes this issue to be apparent but my guess would be some crazy groundloop/grounding issues being the case. Not sure how and there are things that can rule this out like an isolation transformer however I have yet to try.

Can you tell me a bit about your problems guys.

I have the same problem as you, the input lag increases considerably with time in the games but in windows I do not perceive it much, in the bios yes and much like in the games, any configuration that modifies in windows, nvidia panel or in the Bios improves the sensation but for a few minutes, I don't know why but I deactivated the Windows firewall and it felt better that you were born but for a few minutes and it was like before, I have also tried deactivating the turbo intel, c-states, all the options that I have seen on the internet that could improve the sensation but it works the same as before, it is again as bad as ever



test different power cables, different hdmi and display port and the same with 3 different monitors, test all the electrical outlets of my house I have even tested in 4 different houses with equal results, as you said you may damage some part of the components or I dont know. I noticed my problem when I was playing rainbow six and after playing a few minutes I was feeling that they killed me a lot and that my mouse felt weird, but I said in my mind that maybe it was psychological, my game monitor did not look as fluid as some Sometimes the menu of the game was slow compared to the people who stream the game of them is fluid and I saw mine and it was slow until I googled and saw your publication and I knew I had another problem. Unfortunately I can't call an electrician to check my connections since it's my grandparents' house and I don't think he likes to check the house xd. the other would be to buy the ups online to see if it improves the sensation as you put the sensation improved but not quite. This is the one I want to buy but I don't know if it works

sorry for my english, I'm doing my best
xd

this happens to my game
This should not happen without the problem, my friends tell me that it does not happen
that's just the menu, the gameplay is worse, I'm trying to make 2 videos where the difference of the softness of the mouse is shown when I don't have the problem and when I have it

Yup looks exactly like what I have seen. Nice job getting video of it, I can totally relate to having game menus lag a ton like that. Can you share your post in the other thread on OCN, hoping to focus all the documenting of this over there. Both your videos look exactly like my <Mod Edit>. Have you tried messing with physical stuff? Ferrites on cables, seperating all cables from eachother etc? Thanks for chiming in here!

any news?
Some news, no solutions though. At this point the only way were gonna figure this out is by pooling info and discussing this. If we can get in touch with folks that know how electrical data signals, and interference can affect those signals we might get somewhere.

I've tried separating the wires and it's the same. I have not tried placing more ferrites since my mouse comes with 1, my hearing aid too. The cables that do not bring ferrites are the power supply cable, the keyboard and the HDMI

Hello ,
i thought i should give some updates since i want to resolve this for as many people as possible .
firstly make sure you are not running your hardware on crazy high temp , if you are feeling like your input kag increases with time then it might me your gpu and cpu running too hot .

for me it wasnt , the problem was strange since some days was fine and most other days super inconsistant and pretty much exactly what OP derscribed . the way i tested it was getting a log cable and using the different outlets in my house , most of them were faulty ( somehow ) and there was 2-3 good ones in the house , if you moved places and rooms and your problem is still there , there is still a chance that those places were broken as well , maybe invest in a furman mx10 to see if it changes things or not , also it probably wont make it normal 100% it will just make it less noticable .
