Hello, so i have my laptop for like 3 months now and it kind of irritates me that it freezes for second or two, especially when gaming.
My specs:
Model - Acer Nitro AN515-52
CPU - Intel Core i7-8750H 2.2GHz
GPU - NVIDIA GTX 1050Ti (Integrated - Intel UHD Graphics 630)
RAM - 8 GB
HDD - 1 TB
SSD - 128 GB
I'm attaching photo of Nitro Sense where you can see moments of freeze when i'm gaming as it might help to fix the problem.

    While gaming have Task Manager running in the background to monitor the RAM, HDD, and CPU usage. After youve noticed several of these spikes in game back out to the Task Manager and review the usage for each component.

    If any component is reaching or exceeding 99% usage it's possible that's your bottleneck. It could be a few things but it's no sense in guessing if you can try this.

    Aside; consider using the 'CoolBoost' feature in the top-right corner there while gaming. It ups the fan speed and may give you a little performance headroom.

    With any inquiries please include your model or SNID # - Detection Tool

    So i did what you said and i guess it's the HDD that's the problem?
    Because at the moment of freeze HDD spiked to 100% 
    Any tips for fixing this problem apart from CoolBoost?

    I have the same problem on the AN512-42... especially when I'm surfing in google chrome and switching tabs it sometimes lagging for 1-3 seconds, can't click anything on the browser in this time.... Also I don't find the nitro sense app for the AN512-42.
