Yeah I disabled the USB in the BIOS and still get the issue. Weirdly, disabling it in the bios, two controllers still show under lspci but this time nothing under lsusb. [by Jimbwlah]

I just disabled HPET in my BIOS and I was surprised at how noticeable the improvement was, particularly in CPU bound games like BL2 and BF4. The difference in smoothness was definitely palpable, especially since I had HPET enabled for so long.
I had known about HPET for a long time, but I still left it enabled in the BIOS because I knew it wasn't being used by the OS.
