View Full Version : Screen pausing issue?

So I'm overclocking my Strix z270f with a 7700k CPU. Right now running at 4.8GHz and rising. I am finding that when running RealBench, I will occasionally see the mouse and screen pause any movements. Fan still seems to be fluctuating at high and slightly high speeds showing something is happening behind the scenes. After 20 seconds or so it goes back to normal mouse movement. Test finishes with hash passed all thruout. Also with AIDA64 I see the same pausing but doesn't show any hardware failures. How should I interpret this? System overloaded so pausing or instability?

Should be noted when the pause ends, the Log Output windows scrolls thru a bunch of stuff really fast that it was apparently doing during what I consider a visual pause.

It just means the system is loaded so much that it struggles. It is normal.
