Lags, freezes in games and the browser


Good day. I see periodic slowdowns and freezes in games and even sometimes in the browser. At first I thought the video card was to blame, but this problem persists without it. I suspect memory controller but not sure about this. Help identify the cause. I tried to figure it out myself for a very long time, but I couldn't. Processor 10700k. Not overclocked.


Before this processor, I had 8700k and there were no problems. In the system, I changed only the processor to 10700k and, accordingly, the motherboard. I did not change everything else.
