i7-3770K (OC'd to 4.5GHz)
ASUS P8Z77-v DELUXE motherboard
ASUS GTX680 Direct-CUii TOP (stable, stress-tested OC of +52MHz on the GPU clock and +212MHz on the memory clock)
16GB Corsair Vengeance
Even with this computer build, I get frame skips of around half a second (lose ~30 frames or so) before the game recovers. This happens every 5-10 seconds.
I've went into the BIOS and reset the OC to stock, as well as used Precision-X and reverted the GPU OC to stock. Same issues.
Then I tried to disable in-game vsync and force it via the NVIDIA control panel. Same issue.
Any help would be appreciated!
