    I've fixed the lag spikes! I cant tell you exactly what i did to fix these but ill tell you what i did...
    First i replugged all my gpu, cpu and hard drive cables as some may have been loose
    Then i went through device manager again and this time found 2 mice and 3 keyboards in there, i found the ones i was using and disabled the other ones.

    One of the things above fixed this problem and i think it may have been the duplicate mice and keyboards doing something.
    So give these a try and hopefully one will fix yours!
