FX9590 + R9 295X2 - Stuttering that lasts about 5 seconds every 30 seconds

So for the past 9 months now, my pc seems to do this thing where every 30-45 seconds while playing my game will stutter. Stutter I mean by nothing will be moving on the screen and I will continuously hear the last sound I heard before it happened over and over. I have no idea what to do. I have tried messing with the settings, unplugging everything, cleaning everything someone please help me. Should I upgrade, overclock, or is there something in the settings that is causing this?My drivers are up to date. Is there some program I should use to check something? I dont think its a heat problem. Here are my pc specs

You will have better response if you post your question in the correct forum > Drivers & Software

As you can read at the top of this page:

Re: Stuttering that lasts about 5 seconds every 30 seconds

As a gamer u need to keep track of your temperatures while gaming.

you can install MSI Afterburner, which monitors your GPU temps. you can also install another program which monitors my CPU temps.

Together, both programs will allow you  to see my GPU & CPU temps - ON SCREEN - WHILE GAMING.

Re: Stuttering that lasts about 5 seconds every 30 seconds

I just tried them and it didnt help unfortunately. Ive noticed that if something stutters like a game it only happens to the game not to my friends on discord or if my cursor is present. Its just the games and programs. Is there a program to run while playing my game to see what the problem is.
