Question Games getting stutters/microstutters (after overclocking?)

Hello!

This may be unrelated to overclocking, the only other thing I can think of that could cause this is my power supply.

I have a decent knowledge of computers
. Around 2 weeks ago I decided to overclock my MSI ARMOR 1070, I decided to revert the overclock as I wasn't comfortable with overclocking (It wasn't a heavy overclock by any means). A few days after doing this however, I have noticed small stutters in games. It happens for about a frame or two, the amount of stutters in games varies. In Rainbow Six Siege the game stutters every few minutes for around the first 15 - 20 minutes of playing then from what I can tell, the stutters go away. When I noticed this I tried some of my other games and the stutters also vary. In Fortnite, the stutters happen for the first around 10 - 15 minutes then go away for the most part. In Ghost Recon Wildlands there are no stutters from what I can see. In GTA V there are also no stutters.

When I first overclocked I increased the core clock by around 90 in MSI Afterburner and I forgot the memory because I deleted the profile because when I tried to open my games they wouldn't open . I found this strange as MSI Kombustor wouldn't crash and I wouldn't see any artifacts.

(Sidenote: I built this PC last December and has been performing fine until around a week ago or since I tried overclocking about 2 weeks ago.)

My Specifications
MSI Tomahawk B450
Ryzen 5 2600
MSI ARMOR 1070
Corsair MP300 M.2 Drive
16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3000mhz
CX450 PSU

Thank you for any help!

Make sure that any overclocking applications in Windows aren't open in the background. If you used a program to overclock that opens automatically on boot it could be applying an overclocked profile that you are unaware of.
