If you are still having issues
Please run 1 set in slots A2 & B2 and run cpu-z giving us a fresh scr shot of spd.
The way the specs read made it confusing.
You have 2 sets of 2x16 making 64gbs.

So if running cpu-z again with just 2 sticks for 32gb and cpu-z reports you have 64 installed that is 1 issue that will need to be solved. If it reads correct we all can move on trying to get to the main issue.

1 thing when you built the system did you have all 3 m.2's on the mobo when you installed windows?

hello sorry for the slow thread, im very busy at work lately. so i did this: Picture of CPUZ with the 2 RAM slots A2B2 here:

the HWinfo shots i put in a zip cause there are a few hope its fine:

Please note that all this pictures where made in idle, nothing but firefox and HWinfo or CPUZ running. I still did not do the adivced changes in BIOS. ill do them next and post pictures again?.

is it correct that the coreclock of around 4300MHz on every core all the time in idle is normal? i mean whitout OC, should it not be like 3500 isch?

and since i did not know if you guys could take a look at the MSI Logfiles i postet here a picture of it to claryfy my problem, see the very inconsistent frametime causing the stutters at 144FPS.

Check windows power plan.
Set to ryzen balanced.
Next change plan options
Scroll down to find processor power management and double click it.
Click on minimum processor power state
If at 100% set to 10-20% the click Ok and close.
Recheck what ghz is doing then.

This is how to get to where Crosslhs82x2 wrote, in order to "fix" the high idle frecuency (sorry is in Spanish but thats my system language). And yeah, 10-20% is good, I have it set on 5% but 10%~20% is also good.







Cheers

Graphics:
3071MB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (Gigabyte) (no OC, latest Driver installed)

2080TI with 3GB VRAM?


RAM:
64Gb (2x 2x8Gb) G Skill Trident Z Neo 3600 (F4-3600C16D-32GTZNC)

2x 2x8GB. That's 32GB of RAM. Not 64.

And don't listen to whoever said this was an entry lvl CPU for gaming. The 3950x is not that far away from the 9900k

hmh 3071MB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (Gigabyte) (no OC, latest Driver installed) thats wat speccy tells me, i guess its bugged then; CPUZ tells this story that makes more sense:

2x 2x16 GB is the correct thing, i fixed that, thx for pointing that out.

"And don't listen to whoever said this was an entry lvl CPU for gaming. The 3950x is not that far away from the 9900k" if not outperform it in some things i know but how can i make it work? atm it does not feel right :( have you seen my stutter pics form AFTERBURNER? its just wrong.

I will try that :D thx it should just reduce the idle frequency right? i have it on ultra performance not ryzen balanced. is that a possible issue?

PUBG is a poorly optimized game. How does it run in other software/games? Google "stop stuttering in PUBG", there are all kinds of tips that help. I dont play it myself but my son does and there was a few tips he followed that eliminated the stuttering he was having to a minimum.

And dont disable smt. That wont help except on temps which you posted that you dont have that issue.
