Can a motherboard cause this issue?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Motherboard : Asus Prime B350 PLUS

CPU : Ryzen 3 2200G

RAM : Corsair Vengeance DDR-2400

PSU : TX550M Gold

GPU : ROG STRIX GTX 1060 06G

Operating System : Windows 10 Build 1809 64 Bit

BIOS Version : 4207

 

All games i've played have very choppy frames in areas that have buildings or large objects and smooth non choppy frames in flat areas.

 

I've tried reinstalling windows down to an older version messing with driver settings, downgrading drivers, tested each component with burnintest (4 hours 100% load) + tested them all individually also tried another motherboard + no physical damage, no bad beep codes, cleared cmos + bios ram, reset settings back to default, tried sata cables and switched hard drives + ssd. 

 

Started one day when the ssd wouldn't boot and had to reinstall it then the issue popped up, a while later my power supply went faulty (was alot worse with that one then current one)

 

here's a video representation of how it was before, it is better now just not as bad.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

Ryzen needs fast RAM to get optimal performance. I'm not sure if this is the issue but when going with AMD ryzen builds 3000mhz RAM should be the minimum, or overclocked to that level.

Might sound pretty dumb, but have you enabled V-Sync?

 

EDIT: He has from the fps counter in the video

Vsync is completely off, also tried with it on, ram speed isn't the issue (on double channel) and same speed when i didn't have the issue so thats out.

 

fps counter is just locked to 60 fps with no vsync fyi.

I have 2400MHz single channel RAM with my ryzen PC and it doesn't do anything like this, so that's weird. As far as I know this doesn't seem to be a fps issue

Trying to figure out what could cause this, honestly when my power supply started failing i'm thinking it damaged my 2 motherboards i used with it to test, but there dosen't seem to be any visual damage or symptoms with them so its very strange.

From my understanding of the video, it does seem to be dipping to 55-60fps sometimes. Try turning the settings a notch down and enabling V-Sync and it should be much smoother.

If you get faster RAM you'll get better performance. Zen's Infinity Fabric design is directly related to CAS timings and clock speed

 

You don't have to get better RAM though.

Tried with v-sync enabled and settings down it's not a fps issue, and ram has nothing to do with it as i said in post i tried other motherboard which means different ram, processor and same issue.

I do know that, but in this case it's mostly fixed by just getting the fps to 60fps and higher then enabling VSync. DDR4 is pretty pricey nowadays too, so I can see if he doesn't want to spend a lot of time OCing RAM or spend a lot of money buying new RAM so he can play at ultra instead of high

I've tried fortnite on 120 fps + 60 fps + unlimited, e.t.c and it's all staying consistently high yet choppy in alot of areas.

 

Also the temperatures are solid (CPU 60c gaming, 40-50c idle (hot days), gpu is around 50-60c gaming and hard drives are also cool

That's weird. From the video I don't really see anything wrong other than the fps dipping a little bit (and therefore tearing a bit). Try watching the video on another device and it won't look too bad

Might be the monitors, let me triple check it and make 100% sure

 

Tried a tv as a display and same issue. not monitors.

 

Do you guys think that a failing power supply could damage my motherboard in a way to where there is no bad beeps, no visual damage, crashing or any type of symptom thats bad except choppy fps

had a power supply that started failing and i'm not sure if it damaged my motherboard as i haven't had any major issues with it except choppy frames in games with high fps

 

The motherboard has no visual damage, no random shutdowns or restarts and the beep codes say it's fine.

I would first check to see if there are many components "maxing" while hitting those frame rates. They're are a couple programs that will log the percent utilization of cpu, memory, gpu, or if it's thermal throttling. If any of the your components hit 100 percent utilization while hitting those frame rates, then whatever component that hits 100 percent might be the faulty part IF the components were damaged due to the psu. Hopefully, it should give a better idea.

Ok no it's not too slow, it's dual channel and before i had this issue was using the same ram, meaning ram is 100% not the issue, i'd have better fps with more speed but fps isn't the issue

Look at the software, Windows updates or drivers. If this has started suddenly, it's more likely software than hardware issue.

no, because if that damages anything you'll see it right away (assume that you don't bend it more and more, for example installing it in a case and put a heavy graphics card on it)


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

no, static damage is mostly overblown. some motherboards protect themselves against it more than others but I've seen people build pc's on a carpet with socks on. I would recommend picking up a static wrist band they're super cheap and give you peace of mind I use one all the time. Also it would not cause the issue you're referring to.

1) static electricity comes from non-conductive materials, not objects like a metal screwdriver.

 

2) if you touch the motherboard with a screwwdriver while it's on what is likely to happen is called a short, not static electricity damage.

Badd PSU- Highly unlikely. Your RAM - very likely.
