    So since yesterday, i've been noticing my printer would pause every now and then out of no where in middle of prints, It will pause for a second or so and then continue printing, after a while it will do something similar again and continue printing.

    Although it hasn't caused any issues with my prints, but if someone can give me an idea what's causing this generally to be safe. If its an electrical issue i definitely would like to know before anything bad happens.

    Thanks

    How are you printing?
    OctoPrint handling it or are you doing something else?

    If printing via USB I'd suspect communications lagging.

    Yeah octoprint, I’m actually not even sure how to run it with usb. If it’s possible please let me know.

    Post them here so we can review them if you want. Make sure you get logs that include a pause :)

    Are you doing timelapse, and/or viewing the video stream from multiple places?

    Could be a Gcode file that's particularly "heavy" too
