Hello !
This is my very first post in a forum and I hope I can set an END to annoying micro stutters.
First of all my PC Build :

Windows 10 64bit 21H1
CPU: i9 9900K Intel CPU
GPU: AORUS RTX 2080 Ti XTREME 11G
RAM: 4x16GB G.Skill Trident Z RGB C14
MB: Z390 AORUS XTREME
SSD: Samsung 970 2TB Nvme M.2
HDD: Seagate 2TB (Not using it at all)
PSU: Thermaltake Toughpower iRGB Plus Titanium 1250W
Monitors : 2x ROG PG258Q, 240Hz and 144Hz on 1080p
Mouse: Logitech G903 + LGHub Software
Keyboard: Razer Ornata v2

I read other threads on Toms Hardware and have done the troubleshooting. But still no success, the fight still goes on !

Things I already tried:
  • Fresh Install with Windows Media Tool, USB
  • Uninstalled the bloat that comes with Windows fresh install
-installed latest Bios update
  • installed all new possible drivers by hand, offline
  • Checked it out on a new SSD, still stutters
-& Samsung NVMe drivers and Samsung Magican
  • slightly Overclocked CPU/ GPU to look if something changes and reverted
  • "Highest Performance" Settings (Powerplan, Nvidia, ingame)
  • emptystandbylist.exe
  • DDU and checked other Nvidia Drivers
  • Also did the "Full Control" trick with renaming GameBar Presence Writer (YT Vid)
  • Micro Stuttering Fix in Windows 10 (YT VID)
->Quick CPU for optmizing
->bcdedit /set useplatformclock no, bcdedit /set useplatformtick yes, bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes (reverted it bc it got worse)
-> MSI Mode and checked my GPU
-> Interrupt Affinity Tool set mask for GPU to the best CPU Cores possible
  • RAM Cache cleared
  • General System Responsiveness/ Input Lag Tweaks (Without Software)
  • Disables Gamebar and the Windows Game Mode
  • GSync/ VSync and the selectable options in the Nvidia Control Panel
  • Changed windows performance option to “Programs” instead of “Background Services”
  • GSync Technoligy disabled and set to highest Refreshrate, and checked the other way Around
  • Checked my DP cables, changed them to check, put in other ports and 1 Monitor at a time
  • Disabled HPET (High precision event timer)
  • sfc scan
  • disabled or turned off Unnecessary Background proccesses
  • uninstalled the nvme drivers (worked for some)
  • used a HDMI cable for the other monitor instead of DP, to check
There are so many things I tried and maybe missed to write down.

This march I suffered from microstutter and I somehow fixed it, by overclocking my Monitor to 241Hz . All I can say it didnt work this time.
Is there a programm that causes stutter ? Shouldnt it be Windows related ?
Its frustrating that nothing helps whatsoever...

If there are any questions to my system. Please hit me up.

My LatencyMon stats are below. They are too good to have stutters, measured them not a while ago yesterday.

Microstutter visualized in my Youtube Video:

I really looking forward to get help and finally fix this issue, it drives me crazy !
Thank you in advance !

CONCLUSION
_
Your system appears to be suitable for handling real-time audio and other tasks without dropouts.
LatencyMon has been analyzing your system for 0:10:03 (h🇲🇲ss) on all processors.

SYSTEM INFORMATION
_
Computer name: SENF-PC
OS version: Windows 10, 10.0, version 2009, build: 19043 (x64)
Hardware: Z390 AORUS XTREME, Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
CPU: GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-9900K CPU @ 3.60GHz
Logical processors: 16
Processor groups: 1
RAM: 65467 MB total


_
CPU SPEED
_
Reported CPU speed: 360 MHz

Note: reported execution times may be calculated based on a fixed reported CPU speed. Disable variable speed settings like Intel Speed Step and AMD Cool N Quiet in the BIOS setup for more accurate results.


_
MEASURED INTERRUPT TO USER PROCESS LATENCIES
_
The interrupt to process latency reflects the measured interval that a usermode process needed to respond to a hardware request from the moment the interrupt service routine started execution. This includes the scheduling and execution of a DPC routine, the signaling of an event and the waking up of a usermode thread from an idle wait state in response to that event.

Highest measured interrupt to process latency (µs): 140,40
Average measured interrupt to process latency (µs): 3,178549

Highest measured interrupt to DPC latency (µs): 102,40
Average measured interrupt to DPC latency (µs): 1,139836


_
REPORTED ISRs
_
Interrupt service routines are routines installed by the OS and device drivers that execute in response to a hardware interrupt signal.

Highest ISR routine execution time (µs): 211,482222
Driver with highest ISR routine execution time: dxgkrnl.sys - DirectX Graphics Kernel, Microsoft Corporation

Highest reported total ISR routine time (%): 0,036593
Driver with highest ISR total time: dxgkrnl.sys - DirectX Graphics Kernel, Microsoft Corporation

Total time spent in ISRs (%) 0,050432

ISR count (execution time <250 µs): 368918
ISR count (execution time 250-500 µs): 0
ISR count (execution time 500-1000 µs): 0
ISR count (execution time 1000-2000 µs): 0
ISR count (execution time 2000-4000 µs): 0
ISR count (execution time >=4000 µs): 0


_
REPORTED DPCs
_
DPC routines are part of the interrupt servicing dispatch mechanism and disable the possibility for a process to utilize the CPU while it is interrupted until the DPC has finished execution.

Highest DPC routine execution time (µs): 338,698889
Driver with highest DPC routine execution time: nvlddmkm.sys - NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 471.41 , NVIDIA Corporation

Highest reported total DPC routine time (%): 0,0270
Driver with highest DPC total execution time: nvlddmkm.sys - NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 471.41 , NVIDIA Corporation

Total time spent in DPCs (%) 0,042752

DPC count (execution time <250 µs): 551725
DPC count (execution time 250-500 µs): 0
DPC count (execution time 500-10000 µs): 16
DPC count (execution time 1000-2000 µs): 0
DPC count (execution time 2000-4000 µs): 0
DPC count (execution time >=4000 µs): 0


_
REPORTED HARD PAGEFAULTS
_
Hard pagefaults are events that get triggered by making use of virtual memory that is not resident in RAM but backed by a memory mapped file on disk. The process of resolving the hard pagefault requires reading in the memory from disk while the process is interrupted and blocked from execution.

NOTE: some processes were hit by hard pagefaults. If these were programs producing audio, they are likely to interrupt the audio stream resulting in dropouts, clicks and pops. Check the Processes tab to see which programs were hit.

Process with highest pagefault count: battle.net.exe

Total number of hard pagefaults 8772
Hard pagefault count of hardest hit process: 2621
Number of processes hit: 42
