AMD Ryzen 7 Build Laggy, Help!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey all.

 

Back in January I upgraded from AMD FX to AMD Ryzen 7 2700 with 32GB DDR4. For the next 6 months, things have been great! But in recent weeks, I've found myself having to reboot once a week because my system was lagging in performance, especially with Lightroom. So I backed up everything, installed a fresh copy of Windows 10 and doubled my ram to 64. Still, same thing. I went in last night, put fresh thermal paste on my processor, and moved my sound card into another PCI Express slot, thinking that some of lag is coming off my GPU, figured I'd readjust for proper ventilation. But I'm not seeing much of a difference. For day to day work, I don't have to reboot. But when I stream or use Lightroom, I do.

 

Here's the specs of my system (full specs attached):

CPU
            AMD Ryzen 7    79 °C
            Summit Ridge 14nm Technology
RAM
            64.0GB Dual-Channel Unknown @ 1066MHz (15-15-15-36)
Motherboard
            Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd. X470 AORUS ULTRA GAMING-CF (AM4)    33 °C
Graphics
            K272HL (1920x1080@60Hz)
            4096MB ATI Radeon RX 560 Series (Gigabyte)    43 °C
Storage
            3726GB Seagate ST4000DM000-1F2168 (SATA )    31 °C
            5589GB TOSHIBA HDWE160 (SATA )    35 °C
            7452GB TOSHIBA HDWF180 (SATA )    36 °C
            447GB SATA SSD (SATA (SSD))    33 °C
            476GB SAMSUNG MZVLB512HAJQ-000L7 (Unknown (SSD))
Optical Drives
            PLDS BD-RE DH-8B2SH
Audio
            USB Audio Device

PSU

            Corsair CX650M

Cooler

            Corsair Hydro H60 (Push-Pull config)

Case

            Corsair 780T ( Front fans intake, two top fans exhaust)

 

After running Speccy, I noticed that the memory speed and timing doesn't add up. This is the memory that I have, G.SKILL Ripjaws V (https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-32gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232660?Item=N82E16820232660). And if that's where my lagging is, how do properly set this on my board?

 

Thanks in advance.

I'd highly recommend replacing that H60 with something better. Either a high end air cooler like the Noctua NH-D15, BeQuiet! Dark Rock Pro 4, or a 240mm+ AIO. (There are cheaper air coolers that'll suffice, however if you want best cooling + low noise, those would be your best options.

 

Your CPU is running fairly hot (I don't like letting mine go much past 72c) and could be part of it. (throttling maybe?)

 

Your RAM shouldn't be an issue as it's 3000MT/s CAS16, which is fine for Ryzen. If it's running at a slower speed, check your motherboard's manual for how to "overclock" it to the appropriate speed.

 

For now, maybe try increasing the fan speeds on your radiator, and make sure the pump speed is pretty high too.


Specs: CPU - Intel i7 8700K @ 5GHz | GPU - Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming | Motherboard - ASUS Strix Z370-G WIFI AC | RAM - XPG Gammix DDR4-3000MHz 32GB (2x16GB) | Main Drive - Samsung 850 Evo 500GB M.2 | Other Drives - 7TB/3 Drives | CPU Cooler - Corsair H100i Pro | Case - Fractal Design Define C Mini TG | Power Supply - EVGA G3 850W

Bro...

 

That was my next guess. I had this on my old build and Corsair replaced it when it was faulty. I was thinking about going with the H110, but I will look into the Noctua NH-D15, and the other items you suggested. I also thought that the temps were a bit too high as well. It usually fluxuates between 78 and 80.

 

Thanks for the insight!

download userbenchmark and benchmark your PC it will tell you if your components are running as they should, if it says performing below expectations on one of the components then you'll know what it is. it will test everything CPU  RAM GPU HDD SSD. Here is an example of just some of my components benchmarked with it.

So I did some tinkering here.

I went out and got the Corsair H100 Pro, and temps are around 75-76 for my CPU. I may go back and get the H115 sincte those have 140mm fans.

Thanks for the tip on this. I may look into upgrading my video card now.
