Why is OBS making my game so laggy

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

For some reason whenever i record or just open obs without recording it likes to destroy my nice gaming laptop with a good cpu in it the hell? I've recorded before and never had a problem lag free but now its lagging 

1. No its not a memory problem

2. No its not that it gets "laggier" over time as people like to say in my other posts

MSI GF 63 THIN 9SC

GTX 1650 MAX Q

i7 9750H <------- piece of crap cpu that clocks down for no god dam reason when gaming

8gb ram 2667 mhz (ddr3 ddr4 i dont really know does not show

More then likely the way it recorded before may have changed or you are just running out of ram. 8 GB really isnt much to begin with. 9750h is DDR4.

"Sigh" I've already said its not a memory problem as i never had this not to long ago probably a few months ago it was recording fine.

It’s the 8GB of RAM and a mediocre I7. 
 

Over a few months, new updates for programs have come out which will cause higher ram usage. 
 

Hell, 8GB is for $300 builds. You can get a 16gb for around $60.

Just because you say its not w memory problem doesnt mean its not :P 8 GB is not that much ram, Windows alone can take a few Gigs, the game can take a few Gigs, if you start recording it can take the rest and eventually overflow and cause issues when it runs out. 

 

Again you have to look through things that may have changed. This type of behavior does not usually just happen without a sudden change in the settings or the program itself, among other potential changes.

Why is it "mediocre"

It’s being thermal throttled, which is reducing performance massively.

in his previous post, it's actually running above base clock, his "clocks down" is his chip not running at turbo speed

which is a single core speed, not all core speed

 

also, if you wanna record you could use geforce experience instead of obs

and if that's causing issue then it's something else wrong with your machine

like maybe the game isnt running on your dGPU


Things I need help with:

Spoiler

 

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Open up the resource monitor screen either by simply typing it in the windows taskbar, or through your task manager in the bottom left corner of the screen. Does it show free space ram space you have left being swallowed up by "standby" memory? Preferably, you'll want to keep the standby memory at a minimum with a constant refresh every five minutes or so, much like mines below (I have 32 gbs of ram).

It's not a piece of crap CPU. It's actually an extremely good CPU as far as laptops go. It's poor cooling that's causing your CPU to thermal throttle the clocks. And it's for good reason. 

 

I'm going to ask the obvious question here because I don't see if mentioned in your OP. Have you reinstalled OBS?

So you're telling me that clown msi decided to put 1 fan on a computer to cool a gpu and cpu who has that small of a brain i get it is supposed to be thin but really?

Laptops aren't the easiest to keep cool regardless of how many fans its got, and I wouldn't be surprised if its dusty as all hell with it not having a dust filter. I wouldn't be trying to run any demanding application on a laptop that will stress it out and produce heat. And you should still get another 8 gbs of ram like everyone is trying to tell you. If you were just web surfing or using adobe acrobat or Microsoft Office, you would be perfectly fine with 8 gbs of ram, but its really not optimal for applications like OBS Studio.
