    High end build, stuttering in every game

    Hello, this is my build:

    • i5-6600k
    • MSI GTX 1060 6G
    • Samsung SSD 850 evo 250gb
    • WD Caviar Blue 1TB
    • G.Skill Ripjaws V 3200 DDR4 (XMP profile)
    • Dual monitor: Zowie XL2411 144hz + BenQ GW2260 60Hz

    I get stuttering in the following titles:

    • Rocket League: every time a new player join a match the game freeze, also when V-Sync is on I get random lag from 144 to 130 and then the game continue to run smoothly.
    • GTA V: random stuttering Online and fps drops, V-Sync on.
    • PUBG: random stuttering, V-Sync off.
    • Rust: stuttering when loading chunks with fps drops.
    • Ark: as Rust.
    • Total War Warhammer: random stuttering in the strategic map, V-Sync on.

    What I've done till now:

    • Tried every graphic settings.
    • All kind of Windows 10 optimizations like Performance mode, Xbox game mode off, disabled unnecessary services and tasks, no antivirus (Windows Defender on only).
    • Hard drive defragmentation.
    • Nvidia control panel optimizations for every game like Thread optimization, tried several v-sync modes, etc.
    • All drivers are updated.
    • No pending Windows updates.
    • Temps are fine, GPU and CPU never go above 65C.
    • Shadowplay overlay off.
    • Playing with one monitor at once.
    • Moved games from HDD to SSD.
    • Tried different version of GPU drivers.
    • Disabled the page on the HDD and fixed its size on the SSD with the reccommended value.
    • Memtest for both RAM stick at once (8 pass each no errors).

    What I've not tried yet is to reinstall the OS... benchmarks and performance in game are ok and in line with every other user... do you have any suggestions? Could it be network related? How can I analyze the stuttering?

    PS: I'm testing with Latencymon and doing some screenshot of gpu and cpu usage

    It looks like you've tried everything I would have done, pretty thorough. But you might need expert help. If you ask me, a reinstall might be worth it, works wonders sometimes. If it won't take a lot of your time and effort then I would say go for it. By the time someone more experienced responds you would probably be done anyway.

    Voltage limit:

    During those down spikes I get in game stuttering with no fps drops, the cpu never hit 100% usage.

    - When a player joins a match in Rocket League the game freeze but there's not down spikes for GPU usage and I get fps drops. The CPU never hits 100% usage.

    - This is a video showing how GTA V stuttering looks like, this is from an offline session with V-Sync On, when it occurs the fps drop:

    To be perfectly honest the games you listen aren't exactly the best optimised games out there tbh, Think its more down to poor game optimisation more than anything

    None of my friends are experiencing any stuttering with the game, even on low end builds

    @Devlin1888: I would beg to differ. GTAV is pretty well optimized on PC if you ask me, I run it at 4K with a stable FPS that approaches 60, with nearly all settings maxed. Runs smooth as butter, no lag. And that's without overclocking the CPU/GPU, and with no mods. Offline and online performance are roughly the same. Even on GTA4 I still get 90 to 100 FPS outside with everything maxed at 4K, with patch v1.0.4.0 and no mods, that game is a perfect example of a badly optimized PC port. I wouldn't exactly called a GTX 1080 a low end GPU, it's a bit better than what OP has. He really shouldn't be getting this kind of lag.

    I plat GTAV Online all the time & my specs are: FX6350, 2X8GB 1866Mhz DDR3 RAM & a GTX 1050 Ti.
    My bottleneck calculation is 3% only & GTAV works smooth with no stutter all the time.

    My older setup was: FX4350, 2X8GB 1866Mhz DDR3 RAM & a XFX 380 & my bottleneck was 8% & my GTAV stuttered & crashed all the time & rockstar support could not help with any of its optimizing tips.

    I used the Bottleneck calculator to look at your percentage & it says 8%.

    So I think even though the bottleneck calculator says 8% is good & should work perfect I am not so sure as I would want my percentage to be under 5% bottleneck.

    Of course don't quote me on this as my information may not be the cause.



    Update for you:

    i7 4850 & GTX 1060 - will give you 1% Bottleneck, perfect for GTAV

    And then what's wrong with my build? How can I analyze which cause the stuttering in game?

    I've got stuttering online on Rocket League, V-Sync off, when the fps drops the GPU usage spikes to ~0, CPU never hits 100% during a match and Latencymon reported the CPU throttling problem, before I updated Intel lan drivers

    Keep testing with Latencymon:

    EDIT: during Heaven benchmark:

    the score is ok but during the benchmark there was a lag spikes with a GPU usage drop as well
