Top spec gaming PC stuttering

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

 

I have the following spec PC;

 

- Intel i5 10600K 

- Gigabyte 2070 Super Graphics card

- MSI Z490 Tomahawk Motherboard

- 32GB DDR4 3200 Mhz

- Intel SSD Drive(s)

- 215 Mbps internet connection

- MSI 144Mhz monitor

 

Machine runs great until I run Call of Duty Warzone.  I should be able to run this game and max settings without issue, but I constantly get stuttering.   I have been thorugh every video I can find and adjusted Wndows/Motherboard/CPU and GPU settings galore.  I have tried with OC and without OC on both the video card and the CPU.  I have set everything is COD to off or minimum. Change the app priority to Normal and tried High. Made sure every non-essential program is stopped.

 

- GPU temp run no more than 60c

- GPU is running like 20%

- CPU temp maxes out 65c to 70c

- CPU runs around 70% to 80% max

I have attached an image of the stats while in game. 

 

I am at a loss becasue the game is almost unplayable due to the stuttering usually happiong as you go into an engagement or something along those line. 

 

Any ideas would be greatly appreaciated and it is massively dissapointing thinking you have bought one of the best CPU's and everyhing is good quality but you cannto get a smooth gaming experience.  

 

Thanks in advance.

Open a command prompt and type ping 8.8.8.8 -t and see if any packets get dropped. Comcast and other ISPs have been dropping the ball and i've had 10% packet loss since April. Even after getting tech multiple times they simply said its from the extra load and sucks to be me. Point is that game gets stuttery with packetloss SOMETIMES. If you aren't then we can look into software stuff.

Here are the results of a few hours gameplay.  All looks fine to me.  In fact looks pretty good, no?

Not to be rude

But it's really not.

Thanks for coming back.  No offence taken.  

 

- Will give the reinstall a try

- xmp already enabled. 

- Cannot find docp on the MSI motherboard.

- Have tried settig the power on the GPU to max. But difficult to determine max power.

It's the same as xmp ;)

I had an issue like this that took so long to fix. Ultimately, it was a messed up GFX driver causing excessive interrupts, and only in a specific game. 

As @TofuHaroto said, DDU the drivers. Open device manager, enable hidden devices from the menu, and make sure all trace of GFX cards of any kind are gone (besides Microsoft Basic). Also, if it's not too inconvenient, power off and physically remove the GFX card. Then remove all power to the system by removing the power cord, and make sure all NVRAM is wiped by removing the RTC battery from the motherboard. Then hold down the PC power/reset switch for 10s. 
Replace the battery, plug in the GFX card, then the power cord, and boot up to BIOS/UEFI to configure XMP and other settings you want. Reboot to windows and install the latest GFX drivers, but only the drivers and physx, not Geforce Experience etc.

Ddu is a software 

Called display driver uninstaller, manually doing it will cause more problems.

Yes, I am aware what DDU is, that's why I said to use it (first) as you suggested. ;) Not knowing the history of the system, I suggested removing any hidden GFX devices as a precaution to make sure of as fresh a start as possible without a Windows re-install.

Hi all,

 

Thought I would post the solution here.  After checking everything over 2 weeks.


- Every fix you can find on the net (and the ones above)

- Tested different power supply

- Tested RAM

- Put in old 1060 3GB video card
- Changed CPU cooler from water to air

- Changed every GPU and CPU bios and OS setting 

 

Finally - tried using a M.2 NVMe SSD instead of my Pioneer 1TB SDD - and the problem was solved.  I dont know if it is the windows install or the drive itself.  I beleive that some cheaper drivers poffload cache to the CPU as they dont have it onboard.  We will never know. 

 

Now with every in Call of Duty set at MAX the CPU doesnt even touch 60% - and the game is as smooth as silk.  

 

Thanks to the lads above for their help. :)

witth windows10, if you install drivers before it's fully updated, and then windows update and cover certain drivers, all kinds of weird shit can happen. I had to install win 10...twice on the first day 😆

I was just coming back to update the post.  i bought a samsung evo 970 plus 500gb m.2 nvme - used the samsung clone tool.  worked like a dream.  but to my dissapointment the issue was still there. this meant the issue was windows and not the drive after all.  i reinstalled windows in the neww samsung drive.  problem solved.  :)

The way windows 10 works with driver is so wonky at times.

 

I'm surprised it was caused by the SSD, perhaps the game is just constantly asking for new data from the SSD some bottleneck happens
