Random FPS Lag/Slowdown

I have been having this issue since I got pcsx2. At random times during ALL games, there will be a drop in fps with an audio lag, then 1-2 seconds later the game is back to running perfect. This has happened on all 3 games that I downloaded. It seems there is no consistency in the lag, it doesn't just happen at demanding parts like new content loads, it happens completely randomly.

I have tried enabling speedhacks, running in software mode with extra rendering threads, enabling v-sync, enabling MTVU, I thought it could be my laptop overheating and my CPU downclocking, but my temperatures on my CPU never reached over 60 degrees C and I read this is very safe and not overheating.

I'd also like to mention this only happens during emulation, not PC games. I have played the witcher 2, mass effect 2, saints row 4 and many other games for hours without any lag. It only occurs during pcsx2 emulation.

Is my computer just not fast enough to run PCSX2 optimally?
