Question Need help with Stuttering problem in games.


Jun 4, 2016
Issues with micro stuttering in all games regardless of graphic settings.
Hi there everyone!

I recently got a PC from NZXT and overall really love the design and cable management. However, I've ran into a problem whenever it comes to playing games on it. Usually during the time that I'm playing games I'll encounter a full halt micro stutter. I've used MSI Afterburner / RTSS to monitor the games and noticed the stutters happen in the same time when my fps goes from 141 to 140 or 138-139. Also want to mention that I have a G-sync monitor if that helps anything.

Things I have tried:

various set ups from the Blurbusters guide.

turning Vsync On and Off.

max performance mode for GPU.

setting FPS cap.

setting CPU power from 100% to 99%.

setting everything to default.

overclocking CPU.

enabling XMP profile.

setting exclusions for games in windows defender.

changing graphic settings in game.

All of these different things did not help solve the stutter and I'm willing to try anything to help solve this problem. I've spend countless hours searching from Reddit, TH, LTT and so on and nothing has helped so far.

I've ran everything needed for the thread including Dxdiag, Firestrike and Timespy and user benchmark.
