Question 6700k sudden hiccup when running NFS HEAT at 2k


Oct 11, 2016
My system config is
2080super gaming oc
16gb ram
aorus Ad27qd(2k monitor)
intel600p for boot drive
trancend ssd 1tb for game drive.
When I play nfs heat, i found sudden hiccup in game in some places. But after sometimes of playing game, it is gone. First i think my processor is bottle necking but i saw in msi afterburner when this lag or hiccup happened processor is not at 100% or gpu is at average level like 95-99%. Though i also see in this game some of the places giving law FPS where gpu usages are 67-88%, i think some game mechanic problem going on there but these sudden lag i don't really understand what is going on. Do anyone having same issue? or i'm the one facing it. Please help if possible.


You forgot to mention the make and model of your motherboard the PSU and the cooler you're using to cool the K suffix processor part. Also, are you on the latest BIOS update for your motherboard while you've reinstalled the latest GPU drivers? Which version of Windows 10 are you working with?
