New ryzen system, Have a question

 Share

I just built a ITX system with ryzen.

It has a 1000w evga supernova psu

b450i Asus motherboard, 8gigs ddr4 ram

ryzen 1700x 120gb ssd and 1tb hdd

 

My question is well two questions, First question is it normal for the ryzen cpus to bounce around on the clock speed in taskmgr go from 3.5ghz to 3.1ghz.

My second question is 8gigs of ram enough for this system and could it be causing stuttering in games?

Yes, that is normal, a CPU is never running at full speed at all times. 

 

The only way to know is to run task manager while gaming and see how much RAM you use if you're near 100% you will know the answer.

 

Also..... a 1000W PSU?!?!?! Why hahahahaha?

1. uh yeah the 1700x has a base clock of 3 and it has built in ocing software that will turbo it up based on the cpu usage. 

if you want the ghz to stay more consistent you could try a manual oc

2. probaly not depends how much you have running in the background however if you are running single channel ram at below 2666mhz i would recommend getting another stick and ocing the memory timings

The 1000w psu was a left over from my sli system I parted out.

and I used 7.1gigs of ram of 8 and some games it hits 7.9gigs will that cause stuttering in games? cause every game I've been playing has had this issue, Bf1,bf5,bf4,pugb,ffxiv,division.

also runing a 1080ti ftw3 hybrid

It is dual channel ddr4 2400mhz also left from my old system I parted out. Should I get higher mhz ram and 16gigs?

just buy another stick of ram since its relatively cheap now 

you can get a decent 8g kit for 55-60 dollars

uh just get another 2x4 kit and manually oc the ram

lots of tutorials online on how to do this

Once your system runs out of Ram it will write to virtual memory that will be stored on the hard drive for the extra ram. This is very slow compared to actual ram and will cause all kinds of slowdowns and stuttering.

Alright, I will give the new ram a try. But if that isnt the fix what should I look at then?

bios update

cpu/gpu usage during gaming

temps

malware

repairing the games

clean install of windows removing all bloatware

make sure gpu/cpu aren't being undervolted for somereason

 

lots of things

Question 1, the cpus clock speeds bounce either because the ram compatibility or your PSU voltage on the rails could be well less stable 

Questions 2, yes 8gb isn't really enough try 16gb anything less you may get stuttering.
