I've recently been having this issue with my desktop PC. When I'm playing games, or watching videos, every now and then I hear a buzzing noise from my headphones and the video/game freezes for a split second, then resumes normally. It's very short, and it happens without any pattern.
Here are my specs:
- Processor: Intel Core i7 3770K @ 3.50 GHz
- Memory: 8 GB DDR3
- Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670
- OS: Windows 7 64-bit
At first, I thought this might be an issue with my GPU overheating. I have been running temperature monitoring, and it never goes over 70C when I run games at highest settings. I have tested by reducing graphic settings, and it still happened when GPU was running at a steady 40C-50C. And then it started happening when I was watching movies (GPU at 30C), which has me thinking that it might not be related to GPU.
I have been checking my CPU temperatures and they seem fine as well. Hovering between 30C and 40C.
Besides temperature, I don't know what else could be causing this. Does anyone have any experience with this issue?
Any help would be appreciated.
