Hi people. (this may be a long read)
I'm new to all this pc stuff so bare with.
Iv got an issue which has haunted me for months now and is really grinding me down.
I ended up buying 5 pcs all pretty much the same just with 1 different part each time, and each time Iv had micro stuttering without fps dropping.
Iv tried everything possible for someone new to pc gaming eg clean install, g sync on and off, all that stuff but the issue still persists.
Iv even had an electrician come over to look at the electrics in the house to see if that has anything to do with it.
I thought it may have been the ethernet cable so I went to wifi but still the same, i also tried a gtx 1080 ti, and an rtx 2080 ti and the issue is the same.
I use bfv, far cry 5, far cry new dawn, and gta v to test for the stuttering but it does appear in pretty much all the games iv tried.
I'm using a surge protection extension lead as I don't have enough outlets if that may be a cause.
But even when there's no gpu in the pc there's still a faint whining sound.
And if there are basic things to try then iv probably already tried it as that's all i can find on google lol

The main issue that started this was that I started to get coil whine in the game and then the game would freeze for a second whilst the audio was still going, BUT i wouldn't drop a single frame. And when the game froze for a second the coil whine stopped for that second then came back when the game started again. (this is still the main issue btw).
Also when the rooms quiet enough and I'm just browsing the internet or doing anything but gaming, when i move the mouse the pc has a very faint electrical buzz sound.

My current specs are:
i7 9700k 4.9ghz
Windows 10 64 bit
4TB HHD
1TB SSD
1TB M.2 SSD
32gb RAM
850w psu
RTX 2080 ti
H150i Pro
Maximus XI Code
(custom build prebuild)

X2 Dell S2417DG 144hz oc to 165hz 2560x1440

Please if someone could help I would be VERY grateful

Hi, what is the make and model of the PSU? If it's a cheap one that could be causing the problems.
Secondly, is everything plugged in properly inside the pc? There are no loose cables, right? Just give everything a push to ensure the cables are tightly secured.
Lastly, you say you've had 5 different PCs? And all with the same problem ... Is there a part or parts which you are keeping and have used in each of those 5? If so what is it?

The psu is corsair RM850x Gold
Everythings plugged in fully
Iv used the same graphics cards in each one, iv used both an asus rog strix rtx 2080 ti and a asus rog strix gtx 1080 ti in all of thm and the issue still happens. Also 1 of the pcs was custom watercooled with a zotac rtx 2080 ti and the issue still happened.
