Question Brand New High end gaming PC 3080 dropping frames only on specific games (LOL/SC2). Running tougher games perfectly.

Jan 3, 2022
Got a new Prebuilt gaming PC. Everything is running smoothly for the most part. Relatively tough games like Overwatch run like butter with no issues, yet so far 2 specific games (League of Legends and Starcraft 2) are getting small Microstutters/FPS drops. The FPS drops only for a fraction of a second, and it’s non consistent. Sometimes the FPS won’t drop for a full minute or 2, other times it will drop 4 or 5 times in a single minute.
I’ve tried a ton of different potential fixes and haven’t made any progress. This strikes me as a very strange problem as it’s only specific games, and they are games that this PC should breeze through without breaking a sweat.

This is the PC
Motherboard: ASRock X570M Pro4
CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X
GPU: gigabyte brand Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080
Memory: 2x G.Skill F4-3600C18-8GTZRX
Harddrive: seagate firecuda 520 ssd zp1000gm30002 (1TB)
PSU: toughpower gf1 850w

Things I’ve tried.
  1. Multiple Graphics drivers
  2. Checked network/internet for packet loss, network is functioning properly.
  3. All temperatures are low CPU GPU Motherboard all very low temps, I am liquid cooling and have a case with plenty of air flow.
  4. Re-installed, uninstalled multiple times.
  5. G-sync, antialiasing, FPS caps, windowed mode, fullscreen mode, tested every different combination you could think of.
  6. Firewall settings not getting in the way.
  7. Disabled windows Game bar/DVR nonsense
  8. No bloatware or background processes to interfere.
  9. Set Graphics preference to game for ‘High Priority’ as well as in task manager details priority.
