I have a really weird lagspike when i play any games

it would be fine the first 1-2 hours of game play then it will start to lag spike every so often.

i turned off the wireless zero connection already and it shouldnt be the wireless adapter overheating since i opened up my tower and have a huge fan blowing on it

can anyone help this retard?

ps: i have no clue what so ever about computer specs and stuff like that i just usually follow what ever instruction provided to me

lag spikes are caused by heat (video and/or processor) and network issues. If your playing online games over wireless, I would suggest trying to user a wired connection instead and see if that helps.

what games are you playing?
