Hi everyone,

I really hope someone here can help me. I have recently added a Gigabyte RTX 3070 Vision OC to my system:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Corsair iCUE H150i RGB PRO XT 75 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Asus TUF GAMING B550M-PLUS Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18 Memory
Storage: Western Digital Blue SN550 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive
Storage: Samsung 870 QVO 2 TB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Storage: Western Digital Blue 2 TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 8 GB Vision OC Video Card
Case: Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic ATX Full Tower Case
Power Supply: Corsair RMx White (2018) 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply


I've started gaming with it and the performance has been all over the place. Sometimes it is fine, but sometimes I get massive frame rate drops and inconsistent frame rates.

Here is a log file monitoring hardware info from a session in Battlefield 1. I was playing at 1440p with settings on High.

I would really appreciate it if someone could take a look at these values and see if they can see where the issue might be.

'BF1 Log.xlsx' is colour coded. Green indicates good in-game performance, red indicates poor of fluctuating in-game performance, blue indicated as-expected cinematic performance and orange indicates poor cinematic performance. I have split the logs into selected CPU, GPU and Other metics.

As you can see in the log files, frame rates drop as low as 7 FPS and when they recover from there jump around massively.

Everything in the GPU metrics drops off a cliff, including power input. I also found it interesting to note the performance limit indicators, shown below:


Framerate [FPS]Performance Limit - Power [Yes/No]Performance Limit - Thermal [Yes/No]Performance Limit - Reliability Voltage [Yes/No]Performance Limit - Max Operating Voltage [Yes/No]Performance Limit - Utilization [Yes/No]

Please can someone suggest what the issue(s) might be?

Thank you!

I'm not sure how to open these logs, but I suggest monitoring your temperatures as thermal throttling may be at play. My friend deals with that as well with his 3000 series gpu. If it is the issue, then it'd be worth it making a custom fan curve and undervolting.

If the temperature is in the 90's then it's pr

Here is a nice tutorial which should help.

Thank you for the reply - I've never tried undervolting so thank you for linking that very detailed tutorial.

The log files just open in Excel, but I can tell you that thermal throttling definitely isn't the issue - the temps never got above the high 60s C.
