What wrong with my pc

Hello,

 

I've posted multiple posts about this problem but I am still not sure what to do?

I am going to explain whats wrong:

I have built a gamepc myself. I built this to play heavy games. Like BTF1, but also new games like Battlefront II and Red Dead Redemption II. I am going to list all my parts below:

- 8 Gigabytes of RAM 2400MHZ (another 8 GB is coming.(Hopefully tomorrow))

- I5 7600K 3,8 GHZ (A lot of people told me this is a bottleneck for my GTX 1080)

- KFA2 GTX 1080 EXOC (I don't know why it says EXOC but it's not Overclocked)

- Asus Strix Z270H

- WD Blue 500GB SSD

- 650W PSU Coolermaster

I think I got all the parts now....?

 

What is the problem?

Well I am getting  (for a GTX 1080) Really low FPS in games like BTF1 or Paladins. Actually all games are not getting the FPS they should have. As I mentioned In all my other posts. I don't know what this causes. I really want to know what's the problem. I game at 1920x1080. Both my CPU and GPU are at a 100% usage(This isn't normal right?). I reinstalled my GPU drivers multiple times. I also reset my windows once (with keeping all my files).

 

Things I didn't try:

- Adding a additional RAM stick (I ordered on Amazon it should be delivered  by tomorrow)

- Reinstalling using DDU and Windows in Safemode

- Overclocking my CPU and RAM (I am not sure how to do this. And I think it's not good for the parts)

 

I already have a I7 7700k on the eye. But I don't want to buy/replace something that isn't causing the problem.

I don't care what it costs me or what to do I just want to fix this problem. (Please do not post things like: start over)

 

If someone knows what the problem is or how to fix this... PLEASE TELL ME!

I really want to just game at the FPS the 1080 should easily get! (on ULTRA settings)

 

If you want to contact met on Discord please don't hesitate!

I also have some photo's below here ↓ This is while playing GHOST RECON: WILDLANDS

(When the graph lowers I am out of the game than my CPU and GPU aren't at 100%)

Did you already try reinstalling windows to eliminate any software issue?

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...
 

Spoiler

 

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

I did a reset with keeping my files. I didn't do a full reinstall of windows yet.

 

BTW: what do you mean by CPUs bottleneck refresh rate
GPUs bottleneck Resolution?

Maybe dumb question: Do you have anything running in the background?

 

For overclocking RAM enable XMP mode in the BIOS

I would definitely clean up with DDU and reinstall the latest drivers.. 

 

the 100% CPU - is that all the when running a game? It will hit 100 some times but it shouldn't be pegged at 100 the entire time. You're setup now should be able to run everything pretty well, but the CPU and 8GB of ram could be part of your problem.

Look in task manager if the games are using the 100% or other programs are making it full

Should try a complete reinstall to eliminate that as an issue

Otherwise drop games to the lowest settings and see what happens.

Likely doesn't matter much if he has a single stick of RAM.

Yeah I'm not sure what to say on this one, since your not thermal throttling. I have a laptop with a i7-6700HQ, and a 960m and 8GB of RAM and it runs BF1 just fine. I would do a fresh windows install (btw a Ethernet cable will give you better download speeds than wireless just so you know if your not already using one)

I have mostly running discord and spotify in the background. But this should be possible right?

Ingame its between 90-100% usage

That's the funny bit Changing from high to ultra or medium only changes with about 5-10 FPS

I would suggest just to see if it any kind of malware etc When you're playing games open task manager and look real quick. 

What is your idle usage?

If you can do a reinstall I would reinstall Windows. Start over.

I'll try that but I hope that causes the problem. Cause If it still hits above the 90% both CPU & GPU something else is wrong and I am really curious about what it is

How much ram usage do you have in game? To see if it's bottlenecking

Sadly for you, there is nothing to be done. It's pretty obvious from the screenshots and behaviour that your CPU is bottleneckign the 1080 quite severely. And that's normal. The 7600K is quite weak for a 1080 and is well known to bottleneck it. Hence why people stopped buying those a while back.

This may sound weird but this is actually really good for me. I finally am sure now the CPU is bottlenecking my 1080. I am going to buy the I7 7700k.
