Inconsistent FPS when playing my favorite game

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I play heroes of the storm.  I play it on High settings (there is an ultra setting that i stepped down to in finding a sweet spot)

 

I have a i7 4770k (not overclocked) - 32gb of ram - a gtx 1070ti - and running on a samsung ssd - and using a ultra wide 29 inch 1080p monitor with 60hz.

 

The problem i experience is I get lag spikes (frame rate not network) during the game.  I imagined with my hardware I shouldn't experience any lag spikes on 1080p 60fps.  I also have a comcast business class internet and i do not experience network interruptions.

 

I am wondering if my CPU is my bottleneck at this point.  If i reboot my machine before I start playing I tend to have better results, but I feel like I'm hitting a bottleneck somewhere or something isn't fully compatible with one another.

 

Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

I'd try DDU your GPU drivers and reinstall.

It could also just be that DDR3 is slow and can't feed the CPU fast enough, if you can you could attempt to OC your RAM.

Good suggestion to try DDU "Display Driver Uninstaller".  Run it in safe mode .. clean and restart back up in normal mode then install latest WHQL drivers.

 

Also your CPU is a huge bottleneck especially the fact its stock speed and not OCed.  Your 1070Ti won't play nice with your CPU.  Either upgrade CPU or overclock it to reduce the bottleneck and what not.

I haven't dived into OC too much.  Any suggestions on a safe OC levels and or cooling methods? i recently purchased a Cooler master cpu cooler but  my cpu temps max at 67 degrees Celsius .

I don't believe a DDU would solve it, heroes of the storm is a CPU bound title. It's probably something to do with patches they've implemented that hurt support for DDR3 CPU's, who knows. He might have background processes that cause it too, but it certainly wouldn't be a 1070ti that is limiting his performance here.

It's not any background processes, i've removed any undesired ones from startup and i've done fresh reboots right before i started playing and still had performance issues.

 

I just OC'ed my processor, we'll see how that does
