Hello everyone , my gpu has been droping to 0 % while gaming causing freezes up to 3 secs , i cant figure out why , temps seem fine, disk usage seems also fine ,

ran windows memory diagnostic with no errors ,i also noticed that the no load limit and power limit go up and down , dont know if it supossed to do that


Bellow is my setup :

GPU :GTX 1080 OC 8GB Driver version (457.51)

CPU:i7 8700k 4.5 ghz

MB: ASUS Prime z370 p - BIOS Up to date

RAM: 2x8 GB Ripjaws

HDD: 1TB

SSD: Kingston 120 GB (OS on it) PSU: Cooler master 700 W Lite

i also have some screenshots of afterburner when the drops happen View: https://imgur.com/a/07uzUf7

When did this start happening? How long have you had the card working at these settings? I see Power & Temp limit are maxed out, but Core Voltage is stock? Core voltage should be increased for stability if you are going to OC the card. Have you tried reverting the card to stock to see if the problem goes away? If setting it back to stock and the issue goes away then you simply have a unstable OC.

Thank you for replying ,the 3 sec freezing started like 2 days ago , but it droping to 0 % its been hapenning for a while now , i used to have minor stuttering but since i use gsync with vsync on i thought it was vsync causing it , i tried going back to stock gpu settings but it still happens , the only thing i remember doing was using a program called large page util wich was supposed to minimize stuttering , but i dont see that causing this

Try running a userbenchmark https://www.userbenchmark.com/
This may reveal what components are performing poorly, depending on how much data you have in your SSD that could be the culprit
do you have XMP enabled on your RAM?

edit: from what I understand people do experience stuttering with large page util, if its still enabled you should try disabling it in the registry
