R u sure this is the problem, i dont want to have to buy new ram if its not the case. Also whats the recommended ram speed?

You need to sell your current ram to get 2x8GB (and perhaps higher speed), and your motherboard is literally the cheapest possible. Consider replacing it with a b250 or h270.

You call your system a "high end" system but it's got some serious budget parts in it.

I've recently noticed that my fps in games has been way lower than other people with pc's with the same specs.

 

PC SPECS:

CPU: i7 7700k 4.2ghz

GPU: Gigabyte GTX 1060 6gb

RAM: 1x16gb DDR4 2400mhz

MOTHERBOARD: GA-H110m-a

 

So far I've tried turning off game dvr, all drivers updated (gpu, bios), nvidia highlights off and more. I switched to a friends gtx 1060 6gb to test if the fps would be different, its the exact same. So im going to assume its not a gpu problem, but im not sure. In CS:GO i get around 150 fps on minimum settings compared to the same spec computers averaging almost 300 fps average on max settings and in Fortnite i cant even get over 200 fps. Please help, if you have any ideas please let me know.

Single channel ram, terrible VRMs leading to bad CPU frequencies, low ram speed, yeah this is a recipe for disaster.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Agreed. If you don't want to go through the hassle of selling your ram, you could just buy a 2nd duplicate memory module to give you dual channel.

Does the motherboard really affect performance?

oh yes indeed. How would there be 4 tiers if it didn't?

I stream and it goes down to nearly 60 fps, compared to my friend with the same specs and he can stream while staying constantly about 120 fps.

is your monitor over 60hz?

 

You should also be getting over 4.2ghz on a 7700k. The boost clock is 4.5. Its unlocked so you could overclock it further, if you have a decent cooler.

Ur mobo is ass for a 7700k.

Read this.

 

Where'd you get the idea to pair an H110 board with a 7700k?

 

Also what cooler

Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz  | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 |  PaliT GTX 1050Ti  |  8gb Kingston HyperX Fury @ 2933 Mhz  |  Corsair CX550m  |  1 TB WD Blue HDD


Inside some old case I found lying around.

He has an h110 board.

Get a better mobo, you can probably get better prices soon because of Intel's new gen being announced

I have a cooler master hyper evo 212 and whats wrong with a h110 board and a i7 7700k?

The exact reasons I outlined. The VRMs are weaksauce so power delivery is awful.

I say motherboard first. If anything you can get higher CPU frequency which helps a whole lot, but that ram will of course still hold you back so don't expect much performance gain from upgrading only one of the two. Hopefully the board I linked or one like it will produce a tangible result for you.

H110s were made for low end, low power chips. Think pentiums and locked i3's.

 

VRMs are responsible for delivering power to your cpu. Crap ones wont be able to deliver enough or overheat trying to do so leadig to low frequencies and instability. Worst case the board burns up.

Ok, looks like ill get a new motherboard before ram.

Would you say a z270 is good enough? or do you recommend a better one?

Just remember: B250 at least, with H270 a step up from that, and Z270 being best.

And remember not to get Z370, since the 300 series is only for 8th gen intel, unlike your 7th gen (unless you knew that already)

You have a K chip. Overclocking is only supported on Z270 chipsets.

 

You'll be wasting money on anything but a Z board.
