Hi.
So my pc keeps randomly micro freezing in games, i've tried pretty much everything i know and it didn't fix the issue
what i tried :
  1. Reinstalling OS and manually installing chipset drivers \ direct x \ visuals c
  2. Reinstalling OS and letting windows download anything it needs
  3. Overclocking and turning off any useless feature in bios \ setting bios to default
  4. changing ram \ gpu \ mobo \psu (nothing helped)
  5. Optimizing windows \ power plans , hpet settings and so on.
  6. leaving everything on default (bios, ram and so on, even OS)
At this point i think my cpu is the reason.
Would appreciate any help and thank you.

Examples of what happens :

| SSD: Samsung 860 EVO 250gb (stuff) | samsung 970 evo plus 250gb (system) | samsung 970 pro 512gb (games and etc)

IT could be your CPU maybe, but micro freezes could mean the Storage you are using. you replaced the Ram / gpu / mobo and the psu? and still had the freezes ? Samsung Evo's have been known to be problematic. Have you been checking temperatures to see if they are sky rocketing?

They're not hitting 70 degrees and i tried games on 860 evo which is cold. Same problem : (

Im just wondering if there is maybe an Issue with the storage itself. Its worth a try. since youve changed everything else not sure why you arent open to trying something else.
I've tried switching storages as well.
The only part i haven't tried to switch is cpu. The weird thing about it is that my pc completes anta extreme ram test and 6-8 hours in prime95 without any issue

Worth a shot then if you believe its the CPU then try a different one and see if that fixes the problem. All the best.

does the evo plus is first boot ssd drive and on first sata port on board also i would use gpu-z rendering option to test gpu and check voltages and fans speed with temp on hwinfo sensor page when on test
i tried different gpu (used ddu to completely reinstall drivers) And now its just m2 ssds without sata one.

Very annoying that is. Looking at your videos, grasping at straws here, it seems freezes happen at or shortly after peripheral input. Are there any utilities/software for mouse/ keyboard or anything else you may have installed (not suspecting) after a clean OS install?

How much ram do you have?

Maybe try disable pagefile temporarily (or limit size) to see what happens.

Can ya run Userbench and link to results page please.

I havent installed any periphirals related software for my mouse or keyboard.
I got 16gb of ram, 3333mhz (not oced, just xmp) had same issue w 32 gb
Tried disabling page file, dont think it helps a lot but i'll def try it again.

Thermals/ clock speeds throughout look normal.

What would cause it to hang like that. It's like something is waiting on something. Doesn't look like it's cpu related but who knows.

What about that usb flash drive, has that always been plugged in?

Maybe try a single stick of ram. Performance would be lower yes but just to see.

How about a different Geforce driver?

also tried a different gpu driver (used ddu to make it clean)
And its same without usb flash.
Thermals are not hitting limits its for sure, at least aida monitoring or any other monitoring never showed anything above 80c
