I currently have over 130GB of music and nothing lags when i play them. So it cant be that.

Are you sure they are all in your library?

i just deleted everything in my library and am currently re-importing them ill see what happens- its taking a long time becase of all my movies, also i after i changed the affinity so it only ran off one cpu core it worked slightly better, do you think it might not like the overclocking?

edit: well after it re-imported everything it works better than ever, although it put the album art from one of my albums for every single album
