I bought an Intel i7 8700k with the main reason being to stream on twitch. It was going good for awhile, but then I added a second monitor and I had major stuttering while streaming. I found out that the problem was caused by the second monitor being plugged into the motherboard. I plugged it into the GPU and I was able to stream again. It seems like lately I have been getting pretty bad fps again when streaming Fortnite. I just recently got a 144hz monitor that i've been using with my old 60hz monitor. I heard that this could be a problem, but I have tested it and it doesn't seem to be causing this. The fps problems were happening even before I got the new monitor. I just want to be able to actually get 144 fps while streaming. I play on 1440 by 1080 stretched. When I'm not streaming i get 144 fps and that's where i have it capped. The lowest it usually will ever get is 80 but never below 60. When I stream, though, I struggle to stay over 100 fps just in the lobby. Once I am gliding down in the game it will go to 40 fps. If there is nothing too much happening i can stay above 100 fps. I have a gtx 1070 and 8gb of ram. One time on stream labs obs my cpu usage went to 35% and I think that is too high. I really would appreciate it if someone could take time to help me solve this problem because I don't want to give up streaming. Also, my stream settings are at x264 3000 bit rate fast or faster preset. When I try to lower these settings i still have problems. From what I've seen online, I should be able to stream with those settings. Anyways, please help me figure this out. Thank you.
