Random fps drops that look like a major frame skip every 3-5 seconds

I can't even remember when this issue started but it wasn't always like this, every couple seconds, fps would appear to drop to 56-57 fps after sitting at 60fps but on screen in looks like a huge frame skip. It happens when obs is just running by itself without a game on and when obs is running by itself it would never exceed 3% cpu usage. I don't understand the problem. I assume it's background processes so I've minimized or tried to at least, background processes but it doesn't do much. It's not as bad when I restart my pc and immediately jump into obs. It will only drop to 59 or 58fps every couple of seconds but it doesn't look like a big frame skip. Any fixes, I'm desperate
