Low fps on a medium/high end build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I have been randomly having pretty low fps in most games here lately and am wondering if anyone has some suggestions on reasons behind it. After running a bench mark prob 10+ times just to check my hardware I can safely rule out hardware issues. I think it's probably just in the way I have some random settings configured. 


I have:

i7-6700k at stock 4.0mhz 

GTX 1080 founders edition (all on default settings) I messed with a ton of different settings configs with little to no fps changes in games. - Newest drivers

Corsair RM650x 650 watt PSU 

16g of ddr4 ram @ 2200 (Can't remember the exact make and model(but it was kinda cheap))

Gigabyte z170x gaming-GT Motherboard (Newest bios) - all drivers are up to date 

Asus ROG-PG248Q 144htz GSYNC gaming monitor - Someone told me this could be an issue

2 hard drives 

One being and SSD 250gb 

Other being a standard disc drive


All running on windows 10 on the latest update 


Also it helps to mention I stream to twitch and I project to a second pc using NDI from my main gaming pc to my streaming pc. When I'm using NDI I capture at 60 fps. Which may also affect performance I'm assuming since my gaming monitor is a 144htz monitor. But I honestly don't know. 


If anyone has some random thoughts or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.

Does the issue occur when your not projecting to your second PC?

Yes, But not as severely. I was wondering that to. People say that NDI is supposed to have little to know impact on performance. But it's basically the same as capturing a 144htz monitor on a 60htz cap card.

it's most likely a cpu bottleneck with all those things running on a 6700k on ddr2133 possibly with windows explorer doing random stuff in the background hogging up more cpu.
