Microstutter after ram upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi first post ever

Still cant tell if its ram or the cpu but there are microstutter about every five minutes after loading an area in game, doesnt matter if the game takes less or high ram, but when i take out the new 1x4gb ram stick it runs with no problems. i think it could relate to ram timing but am not sure

 

Also dont mind the cpu bottleneck in the video below its just for that game, same thing happens even on games with 50-60% cpu usage

 

Things i've tried :

Driver update using DDU

Changing CAS latency

Updated bios

Looking at the YT video, your issue is you're CPU bottlenecked. You should never hit 100% usage while gaming. This is a classic sign of a CPU bottleneck.

You are not pushing details to max out the GPU and the CPU can only push 60FPS.. what is the issue? 1050Ti is a perfect match.

If you want more details like Ultra + some bells and whistles then a RX 580 will deliver it with the same CPU at 60hz.

 

If this is after a ram upgrade then it's a memory problem.

CPU usage has a direct correlation to memory so if his memory is a problem it can cause higher load due to congestion and judging by how it does not peg to 100% it is a congestion issue.

How this is happening i do not know.

Like i said Happens on most games with less cpu usage as well

1x4gb ram stick it runs with no problems

Can you list what the mobo is and the memory kit specifically? from that userbenchmark we can tell the memory is underperforming and could be down clocking to JEDEC... have you tried to run in single channel?

 

Your HDD can always be an issue due to latest games like to do plenty of random write/read on disk even with assets loaded on memory, this is usually fine if the HDD is idlying and only has to deal with it or if using SSD.

But when you're working with HDD for OS and the program it is not that hard to bottleneck by actual storage which causes those micro-freezes as well, you could try a secondary drive... by preference put OS on SSD and move game and pagefile to HDD, or similar... but being honest your main issue is more than likely coming from your memory kit.

 

If you have any means to test a different kit that'd be perfect to ensure troubleshooting that's not a bad dimm on the motherboard or something.

Asus H61M-C motherboard 

1x Kingston KVR16N11S8 / 4gb 1600 MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL11 DIMM 240-Pin, 1.5 V 
1x Kingston 4GB DDR3 1600MHz CL10 DIMM HyperX Red FURY Series 1.5 V

 

i did notice playing game that hogs below 4gb runs smooth but once i open opera or chrome or any other program that lets it exceed to 6 or 5 gb gets me some microstuttering while playing

 

Maybe its an issue with ram cas freq. timings?

Try giving your ram and cpu a bit more voltage, not loads just a little. you have fallen victim of using 2 different stick of RAM and thinking plugging them in will make them work together. You can make them work together but it often requires giving them some voltage in my experience. If you're watching netflix in your browser that will create micro stutters btw, not sure why it does this but it does and its mega annoying.
