Hello,
When I game at random points my peripherals that are connected to my motherboard via usb disable for a couple seconds then reconnects. I've been experiencing my keyboard, mouse, and wifi adapter cutting out (simultaneously) and I'm not sure what the problem could be. I have updated my drivers on my ports so I'm not sure what it could be.

Motherboard: asus rog strix b450-f
GPU: Asus rog strix 2060
CPU: Ryzen 5 3600x

Need some details on how those devices are connected. Each USB port on your machine has a limit on how much power it can supply to connected devices, and this is a little different between older USB2 ports and newer USB 3 ports. Normally there is NO problem with this if each port has only one device connected to it. But if you are using a USB HUB to connect many devices to one computer port, you MIGHT exceed the power limit and cause this symptom.

So tell us:
Are you using a Hub with these devcies on one port?
If yes, tell us ALL the devices connected to that Hub.
Which type of port is it using - USB2 or 3?
