For some odd reason after fixing some Freezing and crashing issues with my computer, it's now been having an issue where If I open up two youtube videos, or open up a couple of programs, or execute a CMD function, etc etc, There's Audible stuttering in the youtube videos and visible lag occurrences for the first few moments of running any program.

Here's a look at the CPU when I've recreated an instance where it audibly lags. http://imgur.com/BhmFEQx So, from that point forward, I tried many, many methods of seeing what was wrong and trying to fix the issue. >Use Resource Monitor while re-creating lag spike to monitor for possible programs or services that might be creating the lag > Bitdefender quick scan and system scan >Check google chrome extensions for faulty exentsions >run windows memory diagnostic >use sfc/Scannow >Check manually for programs that might not be working right >Defragment drives >run CCleaner and fix all registry issues >Open up services and try toggling windows search and superfetch >Restart Windows management intrumentation >Update all drivers >try and find something in Perfmon/rel >Switch RAM Slots >Check all connections inside computer >switch hardrive SATA cables >check SLI connection >Check Video Cards >Check if Liquid cooling is secure >Uninstall and Re-install Chrome >Use Windows Troubleshooter and a few other things that I've forgotten by now. I'm at my wits end here, and I can't think of anything else to try, or what might possibly be causing these massive CPU spikes- all of the previously stated methods say that everything is absolutely a-okay when it's not. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
