Bottleneck Bashing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, I built my PC recently using some of the cheapest new parts I could get my hands on, including a ryzen 3 1200 and an RX 570. For upgradeablity on a mobo with only two dimms, I bought a one by 8 GB 3000MHz RAM. However, I am noticing some stuttering in games. There is a CPU bottleneck here, well depending on the game of course, but in siege and CS I am noticing a bit of stuttering (mostly in siege, interesting only on DirectX not vulcan). When I open MSI afterburner, I notice the CPU is pinned which is causing the stuttering and that the GPU fluctuates from 100% and a very low usage. I get better frames on Ultra, which is a classic sign of a CPU bottleneck. As I can't overclock it, would buying another of stick of the same RAM improve my performance and stop the stuttering (from FPS drops). Also CS is like 70% CPU and 50% GPU if that helps.

yes, a second dimm would help performance. Ryzen performance is sensitive to memory bandwidth, so a single channel config hurts a lot.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

depends on your performance target in the game. If you're not targeting super high refresh rates in CS:GO then your performance will be pretty greatly improved. However, rainbow 6 siege can utilize a lot of cores so you might still see some stutters in that game.

Yeah 60Hz 1080p is all I want. Do you know of any settings in the game that use CPU usage which I could help turn off to decrease fps drops?

unfortunately I don't know the exact ones but it's worth experimenting to see what works for you

I would try one more stick of ram, running in single channel mode instead of dual channel can hurt gaming performance a bit.
