Random Lag / FPS Loss

Go to solution Solved by ouroboros16,

It was the ******* riser cable! I removed it and plugged the GPU directly in the motherboard and all issues are gone. It's been one week now, lag-free.

 

This is the post that helped me out: https://www.reddit.com/r/pcmasterrace/comments/kyrwp2/solved_riser_cable_pcie_30_was_causing_stutters/

Hi. So I started having random lag/fps loss some 6 months back while browsing, youtube or playing games. I tried everything from taking the PC apart, cleaning everything to reinstalling windows. After this, on another forum I was suggested that this was an fTPM issue, but from whatever videos are there on the web, I'm not sure if my issue is the same. The lags last longer when I'm not playing games; during games this issue mostly starts when I go back to the game from pause menu (or any other menu) and I have to restart the game to fix this. For some games (mostly Betheda's - Skyrim and FO4), alt-tabbing fixes this.

 

My specs-

Ryzen 5 1600

Rog strix GTX 1660ti

16gb 3000 Hz RAM

500 gb SATA SSD

1 TB NVME

Corsair RMX 650

144 Hz AOC 24-inch monitor

Windows 10

 

Attaching a video from Arkham Knight to show you what I mean.

 

Anyone else experienced the same? Can this be a setting which is turned on/off?

 

PS - The lagging is not just in games, but also during normal windows operations.

Take a look at your task manager or something like MSI afterburner and tell us your CPU usage and temperature and GPU usage and temperature, when this happens.
This way, you can find out, which component is maxed out, you can see thermal problems like bad thermal contakt between CPU and cooler and maybe we find out, what causes this.

Did the game run smoothly before with the same settings and resolution?

My build:

CPU

Intel Core i7 9700 8x 3.00GHz So.1151

 

CPU cooler

be quiet! Shadow Rock Slim

 

Motherboard

MSI B360-A PRO Intel B360 So.1151 Dual Channel DDR4 ATX

 

RAM

16GB (4x 4096MB) HyperX FURY black DDR4-2666

 

GPU

8GB Gigabyte GeForce RTX2070 WindForce 2X 3xDP/HDMI

 

SSD

500GB Samsung 970 Evo Plus M.2 2280

 

Power Supply

HDD

4000GB WD Red WD40EFRX Intellipower 64MB 3.5" (8.9cm) SATA 6Gb/s

So took the attached screenshots from the Task Manager just as it happened.

Hmm, we can't see the CPU temperature, but so far I can't see anything bad.

I will install Afterburner and share CPU temps soon

 

EDIT: I installed Afterburner. The temps seem normal but I saw a spike in the GPU usage during the systems lags. See the usage info in the bottom right of the screen below:

Bump

 

After checking a couple of times more, GPU is hitting ~90% usage during the lags (both inside and outside of games). Please help!
