My system is clean of Spyware or any kind of malware
This was an issue I had a while back which I fixed by switching to HTML5 for youtube, but as of late even HTML5 wasn't enough.
Every time I open a new youtube video the video loads up either immediately or after a brief period of loading/black screen in the player and plays just fine but everything else in Chrome lags like crazy.

Meaning, you can't switch tabs, the cursor is stuck at whatever form it had when the thing started messing up, my whole computer is a lagfest until whatever is happening ends and things settle down.

Sometimes interacting with the player like seeking through the video also causes this strange lag.

What pisses me off is I know it's not my connection since the videos themselves work fine.
Also this seems to be more common on one of the two youtube accounts I use, which makes zero sense.

also god forbid I try to display asian characters on youtube videos
chrome lags like crazy until it finishes doing whatever it is doing and lags up my entire system.

Also I forgot to post my specs

i7 3820

there is no significant CPU activity when this lag occurs

Considering I stopped using firefox because of this exact same issue years ago, you're not helping.

I've always had problems with youtube across many computers and even tablets
they sometimes go away but they always come back

Maybe you should lay of the drugs and maybe that'll fix your problem.

Try turning off hardware acceleration.

Offtopic but I don't know why people get the quad core x79 cpus when they only have 4 cores and offer none of the benefits of z77/z87 chipsets.
Video games are fun but so is staying shape!

What chrome extensions do you have enabled/disabled? Would clearing browser cache and or cookies do anything?
I have built - Minus a few parts.
