Going to keep this short...

Really Long story short, since 2017 I have owned 5 gaming PCs, two pre-built and three I built myself... Each PC stuttered, doesn't matter what game it is, it will stutter relentlessly, doesn't matter what resolution I play at or what graphics settings, it will stutter so bad that it's basically unplayable. I have also gone through countless amounts of monitors, cables, mice, and keyboards and nothing fixes it. After doing all that, I thought it had to be something like the electrics in my house causing it because let's face, five completely different PC's with the EXACT same stuttering issue? No way. So, I got a new PC yesterday, got a good UPS too just in case, set it all up, loaded up a game, and yep, unplayable stuttering in all games again. I won't lie, I am so close to putting my head through my monitor, this issue makes zero sense. My current and last PC are both very high-end yet can't even run something as basic as Minecraft with stuttering everywhere.


Now that I have told you the situation, I just want to hear your thoughts on it, let me know what you think and hopefully someone reads this that has had the same problem.... And before someone asks because they always do, yes I have the DisplayPort cable going into my GPU from my monitor and yes the drivers are up to date. I should also add that it being a component or software issue is completely out of the question considering all of the things I have tried over the years.



My current PC specs:
Intel Core i7-11700K
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070
Corsair Hydro H100x CPU Cooler
32GB DDR4 3200MHz
Asus PRIME Z590M-PLUS Motherboard
2TB Seagate Firecuda 510 M.2 PCIe

Try these step by step:
  • Disconnect from internet
  • Install Intel MEI (and restart if required) and update it.
  • Uninstall gpu driver using DDU (clean and do not restart).
  • Uninstall all the processors on device manager (should be 16 on yours) like this:
  • Restart the pc to bios, and update to the latest bios(download, extract the files and copy it to flashdrive, plug it on top rear usb slot then reboot to bios and flash the bios). Then go to bios again after update and load default or optimized settings.

  • boot up to windows and install the latest Chipset driver and IO Driver, reboot and connect to internet.

  • Install the latest nvidia driver.

    *do this all offline until reboot after installing chipset driver, also you may reboot to bios after all of this to set the XMP (and previous settings you did), make sure your ram is on slot 2 and 4 if its 2 sticks. Download needed files (highlighted word) before doing step 1.

  • And check windows update (and optional updates) if there is any. Also enable Hardware Accelerated Graphics Scheduling (available on the latest windows update)in graphics settings like this and reboot:

Make sure the psu connected to the gpu is 1 pcie cable per 1 slot (use main cable, not the branches/split) like this:
