  1. Hello everyone, I'm writing this after two weeks of ripping my hair out of my head. I bought a Logitech C920 with the purpose of recording and streaming games and design tutorials. You know, something to keep me busy and stop procrastinating. It should be easy, right? Just plug it in and have fun. But apparently, the PC Gods punish me to the point of desperation. When I try to set-up my webcam in StreamlabsOBS or just OBS classic, the image stutters (the same thing in LogiCapture). Here's an example of my ongoing torture: Youtube Link. Here is how it behaves: in some settings, when I just preview the image in OBS there is just a minor stutter on the bottom of the screen (once every minute or so). When I press record the image stuttering gets a bit more frequent and when I open a game it stutters like crazy. While doing all this (obs recording and gaming) my CPU is at ~80 %, RAM at ~50% and GPU at ~50%. I will post my specifications at the end of my post. There are two programs in which the camera does not stutter: Camera Settings (from Logitech) and Logitech Gaming Software. But you can't record or stream in both programs, so it's useless. I've tried everything I could find on the internet, still no results. I did find however someone from which I could borrow a Logitech C922 Pro Streaming...AND IT DOES THE SAME THING ; _ ; So, I tried my luck with something new: Razer Kiyo. And guess what. Yes, same goddamn thing. The same, goddamn torture. Here's what I tried so far and some info: Yes, all the drivers are up to date. Yes, I did try all the USB ports (motherboard, case, monitor) Yes, Windows 10 is original and up to date. Opened StreamlabsOBS and OBS with Administrator, with and without compatibility mode on, same results. I've changed the PC power settings to High Performance and disabled Windows's option to "save energy" by turning off usb ports. I've manually set up the Image Device driver to be "USB Port" instead of the last Logitech or Razer driver. Reinstalled USB Port Drives. Blocked my antivirus from interfering with the webcam privacy restrictions. Turned the unnecessary Logitech background processes. Tried all the settings options for the camera (50hz,60gz, autofocus on/off, low light compensation on/off and so on) Talked with Windows Support. Talked with Razer Support. Posted in Logitech forum twice with no answer. Troubleshoot everything I could find to troubleshoot. Scanned PC for virus or broken files. CMD Scan. Nothing...nothing works. There is only one thing I need to specify that I've noticed: The stuttering of the image depends on the USB port I plug it to, USB3.0 is bad, USB3.1 and USB C is a bit better, but still stuttering. Here is my PC Build: Case, Motherboard, CPU, GPU, RAM, Samsung SSD 150 and Toshiba 1TB HDD, Power source. I don't know what else to do, where else to go. If you have any clue on what is going on, please give it a shot. I have run out of...everything O _ O Thanks for taking your time to read this, it means alot. Have a great day!

    thanks. I will! And by the look of your avatar and name, i want to mention that I entered last night in WoW and i was amazed. I've been playing this game for 10 years on low settings and now on ultra it's mindblowing. I have to level a character from 1 to 110 to see al the zones

    My first pc build

    It is done, the beast was born! Everything went well and it was a great experience. I was almost surreal, it took me almost 5h with the windows installation to get things done. The most difficult things were to put in the RAM (i know, but no matter how hard i pushed them they still didn't want to click, and i was afraid not to break anything. it worked in the end), placing the motherboard on the case and arranging the psu cables. I am verry happy of the build and the components and I would like to thank you all for your help, you guys shifted my own build in the right direction. And for that, I am gratefull. I will write this post in both of the posts I made regarding this build and tag you, because I don't want to miss anybody. Thank you @Mr alex , @deXxterlab97 , @Energycore and @Droidbot Here are some photos; Have a great day and see you arround!

    Choosing the right PSU

    Yes, I know. I will use a external one. Deal, so the SeaSonic S12ii 620 it is then, especially now that I've found it at 75$

    Choosing the right PSU

    The GPU specifications tell me that they recommend a 500w PSU, so the 620W PSU from Seasonic would do just fine. Damn @Aereldor knows his shit.

    Choosing the right PSU

    I'm going to buy it in Romania, I'm thinking of spending 100$ at max. For example, the Seasonic S12II-520 Bronze 520W costs ~60$

    Choosing the right PSU

    @vojta.pokorny good, I will take a look. I have no ideea why friends recomend me to get a 800W ;___; They also recomend +80 platinum or diamant rank. Later edit: took a look at your signature, a lot of info there. Thanks!

    Choosing the right PSU

    @Comic_Sans_MS ok, so the required W (watts) for my components is 357W (acording to the coolermaster calculator). And it's recomended to have more than the recomended, especially if I want to add aditional RAM or overclock.
  12. Hello guys, As my first gaming build is starting to "get in shape" (mostly with the help from you guys), I believe that next month I will be able to buy all the parts. But, there is still one component that gets me nervous and I still can't be confident enough to buy: the power source. I recieved some help from some of you guys and recieved tips on the powersource, but my build has changed a bit because I've found some good offers. I've calculated on different websites what power do i need, and the results are: Load Wattage:357 W; Recommended UPS rating:700 VA; Recommended PSU Wattage:407 W. Needles to say I don't quite understand 100% what those numbers represent. It was recomended to me by Aereldor the Seasonic S12II-620 Bronze PSU, but i think with the new build it's not enough. Here's the final build: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor ($329.99 @ SuperBiiz) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($27.88 @ OutletPC) Motherboard: Asus Z170-A ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($148.49 @ OutletPC) Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($93.99 @ Jet) Storage: ADATA Premier SP550 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($71.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($49.66 @ OutletPC) Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 8GB G1 Gaming Video Card ($399.99 @ B&H) Case: NZXT S340 - Designed by Razer ATX Mid Tower Case ($85.99 @ NCIX US) To this I would like to add that sometime in the future I would like to add an optical drive. The PC will have two monitors, gaming mouse and keyboard, i would oftenly use the USB ports. The pc will be used in the weekdays for ~5h, and in the weekends ~10h. Any help would be apreciated, thanks!

    @Droidbot @Aereldor what's the deal with cheap ssd? I read in many places that people recommend a cheap ssds, but i can't actually understand why people leave out brands like intel, kingston or samsung. Even on the website from where i buy my parts, the second most bought is ADATA Premier Pro SP550 240gb. Regarding ssds, the popular and trustworthy brands don't actually mean better parts?
