I have windows 10 on a samsung 970 nvme ssd, and have another 240gb ssd and a almost full 2TB hard drive.

I have a problem where the pc works fine but then the longer it is on for i.e 2 hours, the more the lag starts to be prevelant. For example when I first turn on my pc there may be a freeze or microlag for less than a second and then it is fine for 30 minutes. However as time goes on for example 2 hours as previously stated I can be in a game such as League and the fps will randomly drop to 40 for a second or two and this will repeat more and more frequently as as the computer is on longer.

At first I thought this issue was related to a windows update or drivers and then to the game itself but then I noticed it was happening everywhere including windows explorer.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled my gpu drivers which is an ASUS ROG Strix 1070, I have even tried an R9 280X and the problem persisted (wihch uses HDMI rather than the GTX 1070 DisplayPort so I know its not that). I checked the CPU temps and they seemed fine but I changed the cooler just to be sure and same result.

Finally I decided to do a clean reinstall of windows 10 on the NVME drive and the problem persists. My thought now are that it can't even be the PSU because the NVME drive is connected to the motherboard through M.2 and if the PSU (or sata cables) were failing other components wouldn't work.

I've run many antivirus scans such as Windows security, IObit, Malwarebytes/ADWcleaner and nothing seems to be flagging.

I genuinely have no idea what it could be, can anyone offer some insight or help?

and make and model of the psu?
what the cpu/gpu temp after a few hours?
ram usage after a few hours?
PSU is Corsair CX 600M, CPU temps don't exceed 55 degrees C as I only play League of Legends mostly, I also said I changed the CPU cooler which didn't make a difference. The average RAM usage doesn't go up but I haven't noticed any spikes, though sometimes system hardware interrupts take 100% which is usually a driver issue but I've reinstalled all my drivers.

As for GPU temps they aren't going into 80 or anything that would throttle it, but I'm not sure exactly.

test psu on load using occt and see if it could handle test for about 10 min take note of voltage before test and on test to compare them .
The test configuration was the Power Supply Test, Mode: Large Data Set, Thread Count and Instruction Set: Auto and Logical Cores.

I ran the test for 10 minutes and 8 seconds, the resting CPU voltage was 1.23V, and 46 C, under load it was 1.25V and TMPIN0 which I assume was the temperature sensor pin read 77C.

GPU was 47C to 66C and voltage went from 0.82V to 0.87V.

test ok so run memtest 1 module at the time and where are the games files on on the hdd or the drevo .
League of Legends is installed on the M.2 NVME drive, and the memtest came back without errors. However I haven't had any lags today or yesterday so maybe the problem has solved itself. I will keep you posted tomorrow.
