Since a few weeks ago I've been experiencing severe performance issues on Windows and possibly on Linux.
My self-built system contains:
- CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4570 CPU @ 3.20GHz (Stock Cooler)
- Mobo: MSI B85-G41 PC Moate(MS-7850)
- RAM: 8GB, 2 Sticks, Kingston KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX
- GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series
- Drives: 120GB SSD and 2TB HDD
PSU: Some random 600W PSU from the Computer store where I got my Parts
The way I determined that my PC has performance issues, is that audio playback is severely impaired and games that should run with no issues are partially unplayable.
When I play audio via my browser or Deezer (an audio streaming app) I get stuttering at random intervals.
Some games that previously ran with no issues have extreme lag. A game that I recently acquired and that according to the developer runs on lower spec hardware then my system has.
I have reinstalled Windows on my main drive, but the second drive containing one partition with Windows data and one partition with Linux data was left untouched. The issue still persists, and I have no idea where this issue came from or why I still have it.
The issue happens on no load, CPU, RAM, GPU, storage and Ethernet are all not really used. Checking hardware didn't result in anything except my CPU temperature being 90° C. I'll check on that. I didn't install anything new. Probably Linux means that Linux has performance issues, but it's more of a gut feeling then anything I actually experienced.
