Default ICS home screen refresh constantly

I have ics and my home screen is constantly refreshing and it takes about 5 seconds for everything to pop-up. Same thing for my app tray. It didn't do this with GB. How can i fix this? Is there a ROM that i can use but still keep the blur stuff? I'd rather just stick with sick ROM if possible. I've tried resetting my phone daily but that isn't the problem. I posted pictures of my app tray and home screen.
Thanks in advance! !

Use apex launcher and set it to stay in memory under advanced

Is it similar to stock launcher?
Update: i like it but how can i fix the app drawer now? It still takes a while to come up.

Mess around with the settings within the app. Menu-apex settings. Try turning off transitions for example. Same thing helps if u disable transitions from developer options in normal settings

I tried Apex, didn't like the lag.

I am using NOVA instead. Looks the same as stock ICS launcher, yet buttery smooth.

For more tweaks on making ICS smoother, try these:

I'm not looking for thanks.

Check your free memory. This normally happens when your launcher gets thrown out to make space. Maybe get rid of some bloat.

Edit: Another option could be raising the memory limits to throw out apps earlier (hopefully not the launcher, lol, but apparently that gets kinda elevated treatment).

As of other launchers, I had the best experience with stock launcher, smoothest of the pack...

I get these every once in a awhile to. I think its due to the launcher needing more memory. It seems to happen when I am doing many things at once so I would assume its just running out of ram to use
