Sudden screen freeze but mouse still responsive

Hey guys I'm experiencing sudden screen freezes when playing games an sometimes when my desktop is idle but most of the time I experience this when I'm playing.

Specs:

i5-4690k @ stock

Asus Z97-K

Samsung 750 Evo 250GB

WD Caviar black 2tb 7200rpm(newly bought since my last wd blue is in the brink of death)

MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X @ stock

Seasonic M12II 620W

 

I've currently had a clean install of windows earlier, I've also tried re-seating the gpu, drives, sfc scan, checked disk health( all are healthy), haven't done a virus scan though since i just came from a fresh clean install of windows. I am also currently running a 3 monitor setup with a VC239H, PG248Q and some old compaq monitor, one thing to note also is that when i turn off my old compaq monitor my pg248q screen flickers but when i turn of g-sync the flickering goes away.

When you say that your mouse is still responsive I am guessing it is outside the game, which would throw out extreme lag. When does it occur in the game? When you enter a new room? Randomly?

Try to open task manager the next time it happens, Ctrl+Shift+Esc, or you could have it running on another monitor the entire time. In order to view your Performance and if one of them is maxing out the problem will be with that component
