[SOLVED] Microstutters & Crashes | RTX 3060Ti - Please Help !

Hi, after I upgraded my GPU from a GTX 1070Ti to a RTX 3060Ti, my fps has been higher but I have also been suffering from stuttering and crashes in multiple games.

Here is my user benchmark: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/49680863

I also took a picture of CPU-Z and GPU-Z: https://prnt.sc/26ehjbh

Genshin for example, every 15 seconds my game microstutters for like half a second and it drives me insane.
other games include Fortnite and Super People which just crash randomly at random intervals after like 15-30 minutes plus micro stuttering sometimes. I'm running DX12, and DX11 seems to make things worse.
I have no idea what the issue is, I tried these things but none of these helped:
  • Updated both my Ryzen drivers and my GPU drivers on nvidia geforce experience, I also updated from the website but that didn't help either.
  • Changed to a different power plan.
  • Set games to high priority.
  • Checked if there's background tasks interfering.
  • Checked if anything is overheating, GPU is running at around 50 - 60 C when playing games.
  • Overclocked my GPU slightly to see if it gets rid of the issue, it didn't. (was having issues prior to overclock)
If anyone could help that would be greatly appreciated. From looking at the specs is it the ram??

Hey there,

Whilst I'm not suggesting the ram is the issue, you are hobbling your system with that slow 2400mhz ram. You are losing out on a ton of performance. Both in terms of general performance, but specifically gaming.

You really need to pop in a 2 x 8/2 x 16gb 3200mhz min. Preferably 3600mhz.

Hi hello!

Thanks. I just ordered some ram, it's 3600 mhz and will be coming tomorrow. I hope it fixes my issue as I feel as I got my GPU, it wanted to go VROOM but I feel like the ram was maybe slowing it down or something. I also have been getting better FPS in all my games, but it isn't a super amazing increase even overclocked.

I'm currently not overclocking the cpu and I don't even know how haha
Good. That will rule out the CPU being an issue.

You might look at a bios update for your mobo. This can sometimes resolve GPU issues. Do it just to rule that out too.

I'm presuming your playing these games online. Is your Internet up to scratch? Any issues there. High ping or low bandwidth can certainly cause stuttering too. Worth checking everything's okay there.
