Starting about a month or so ago, I was having problems involving my computer during games, or render session to start freezing and unfreezing over and over almost as if it was stuttering from performance issues, along with the freezing I was met with loud irritating audio freezes as well (literally unbearable to tolerate), upon looking further into it I found not a single problem with my thermals, hardware performance, or any other typical underlying problems that would be a clear giveaway. I had completely uninstalled windows and started new with a fresh install, it was running completely fine about two weeks or so in, and at the day of writing this up I immediately ran into the same issue again, restarted my computer, tried checking thermals, all to no change in results and no issues with my hardware. The only thing I can maybe pin this down to would be a problem that popped up back in February when I noticed my NVME drive had been hanging out of the socket (I have no clue for how long) leading to the drive essentially being entirely corrupted, and disallowing any writing to the drive along with a total refusal to acknowledge existence of certain files, and blocking access across the board to any files stored on that drive, I am unsure if that problem could have spread to me SSD drive, but I genuinely cannot imagine what else it could be.

Hardware:

Ryzen 7 8700x
RTX 3070
Asus ROG STRIX X470-F Gaming ATX
NZXT Kraken x63
4x Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB 8GB DDR4-3200mhz
Samsung 860 Evo 1 TB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Corsair RM (2019) 750 W 80+ Gold

Any assistance on the matter would be immensely appreciated.

follow this step by step in order (read till end):
  • Disconnect from internet
  • Uninstall gpu driver using DDU (clean and do not restart).
  • Uninstall all the processors (is a must, should be 16 on yours, also when it asks for restart, click on no and keep uninstalling all processors) on device manager like this:


  • Uninstall AMD Chipset Software in control panel (if there is none, skip it.)

  • restart the pc to bios, disable AMD fTPM and secure boot if it was turned on by default, save and exit, go to bios again, flash to the latest bios, then after updating bios go to bios again, then load default or optimized settings, disable CSM, enable Above 4G Decoding and Resizable bar option if you want to (these 2 options wont be available unless CSM is disabled), then save and exit.

  • boot up to windows and install the latest Chipset driver (should be ver 4.03.xx), then reboot. Try to take a look on power plan if amd ryzen balanced power plan is available, if it's not then its okay.

  • Install the latest nvidia driver , and then connect to internet.

    *do this all offline until reboot after installing chipset driver, also you may reboot to bios after all of this to set the XMP, and after setting the XMP to the fastest profile available, go to advanced dram timing, find RTT options. Change RTTNom to 7 (or 34 ohm), RTTWR to 3 (or 80 ohm), and RTTPark at 1 (or 240 ohm) then previous settings you did. Download needed files (highlighted word) before doing step 1, do the step in orders.

  • Run cmd as admin, then do chkdsk /x /f /r, after that do sfc /scannow.

  • And check windows update if there is any and install them (except optional update). Don't forget to turn on Hardware Accelerated GPU Scheduling (Nvidia GPUs only) in graphics settings and reboot.

  • Make sure the psu connected to the gpu is 1 pcie cable per 1 slot (use main cable, not the branches/split) like this:

Thanks a bunch, totally appreciate it, I am going to make sure to get back to you on this tomorrow morning!
