    Occasional stutter - sometimes multiple in game

    Hi guys,
    I’ve recently built a PC and installed windows, all the correct drivers and also updated bios and the SSD firmware. All the temperatures and performance is spot on. The problem is, I seem to stutter at random points while playing any games, especially in loading screens. It isn’t really consistent but it does happen sometimes. The games I currently have installed is BF5, BO4, GTA 5 and Forza horizon 3. I have also played 3 consecutive games of BF5 without stutter, but then it will eventually stutter at some point again, sometimes just randomly and sometimes when explosions and a lot of stuff is going on. Black ops 4 seems the worse where 1 stutter can lead to multiple in intensive situations. My CPU stays at 4.6GHZ constantly playing games but never goes to 100% usage or even 80% in games for any core and I’m getting around 100-130FPS for all games I play and down to 70 when intensive and no stutter occurs. If I run a GPU benchmark and a stutter occurs the minimum FPS goes down to 30’s or 20’s.


    What I’ve tried:
    1. Enabling/disabling XMP
    2. Increasing the voltage in increments
    3. Switching to new display port and new monitor
    4. Updating Bios
    5. Clean re-install of nvidia drivers
    6. Reseating GPU and RAM
    7. Stress test - nothing goes over 70 degrees
    8. Memtestx86 with XMP enabled - no errors
    9. Checked that RAM voltage stays the same
    10. Reconnecting PSU cables

    The stutter isn’t that noticeable in forza besides when the game is just loading in but it still happens. Is there anything else I could try or look for in a stress test??? I’m really at a dead end

    Mobo - Asus Maximus hero XI
    CPU - 9700k
    RAM - Corsair vengeance RGB 3000mhz
    GPU - Asus 2080 STRIX
    PSU - Corsair HX850i
    OS drive - Samsung 970 m.s NVME
    Games drive - 1TB WD BLACK
    CPU cooler - Corsair h150i
    Case - Corsair 570x Case fans - 6x Corsair LL*

    Extra info: Cold boot causes PC to boot twice and then the third time only gets into windows. Other people having this with the same board as well, I resolved this by changing the dram frequency to 2933MHZ instead of 3000MHZ, which stopped it but not sure if it’s the right thing to do?
    I also had a 2070 which died and the pc still *had stutter before that so I believe it isn’t the graphics card

    All I can think of if not the VGA itself is that your in game settings are too high for the hard ware? I do not know what res you are playing nor the level of detail you have set so really guessing here.

    Could you please download ROG Realbench and run two consecutive runs of the benchmark and post back outcome.
    To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.

    I’ll definitely do this tomorrow, is this benchmarking software a lot better at finding the faults?

    Other benchmarking software seems to show stutters sometimes too but I cannot find what’s causing it.

    Disk usage, GPU usage and CPU usage is fine*
