Corsair Vengeance rgb pro 16GB 3200MHz
ASRock Z390Pro4

Hi all,

Please bare with me as I'm new to this forum and also PC building in general.

The Issue:
I've owned the 3060ti since late November and saw no issues until I added the new CPU then started seeing tearing and my FPS going from 400+ to 40 in an instant. Now it would make sense if I was playing graphicly intensive games but no, I play Valorant.
Just slowly moving my mouse on an X-axis causes my FPS to stager significantly and it has been driving me crazy. As I view my system stats my GPU load goes from 60-80% right down to 8-4% then climbs back up slowly just to do it again every time I do as I said.

What I've Done to Try and Solve the Problem:
I reverted my driver on my GPU back to 457.51 by wiping my GPU with an uninstaller and also I played around in MSI afterburner tweaking settings to see if anything would help.

Honestly any response to help would be amazing at this point because I'm at a dead end.

Thank you!

Could be a CPU bottleneck but that's not possible with the beast of a processor that you have. Are your components properly cooled ? Have you tested your card with benchmarks like 3DMark, UserBenchmark and GPU-Z ?

As I look into it more intensively this could be the issue as I tested other games and the pc is fine. I have a Corsair 240mm AIO and temps on the CPU never get above 55 and the GPU is always around 60-66.

I have the Base clock on the CPU and GPU as well.

Userbenchmark said my CPU and GPU were performing as intended not noting any issues.
