Problem


Whenever I play Fortnite, I start stuttering/freezing and frame drops to at least 60 on high settings. max is 200fps. Average around 160.

Whenever I play BO4 i average around 90-110 on max settings. and have many frame drops which I dont know why. Its starting to get frustrating.

Budget reasons. Thinking I have a leeway clocking it to 3000. Which I don’t know how but I’ve read that I can. I’m still new to this stuff.

Yeah, that PSU isn't very good. Next Time you want to purchase some parts, I would get some advice because you bought a $500 GPU and a $350 CPU then bought a very poor PSU and mediocre RAM. IMO the issue is your PSU.
