Getting microstutters/freezes while playing games =(

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've recently built this computer and am experiencing weird stuttering while playing games.

At first, I thought it might've been Realtek's sound driver causing the problem so I disabled it. However, that did not fix the stuttering.

What else could be the problem?

Is your DPC latency okay? See if it spikes during stutters.

The problem occurs at stock as well.

I've ran the program and the average time was around 100 micro seconds with a spike or two that reached a maximum of 211 micro seconds.

What can you tell me about those results?

My EVGA 580 does this too. When watching GPU usage it is stuttering. Haven't figured it out myself either.

Have you tried different driver versions?

Yes.. My problem just started randomly one day with no changes. Shortly thereafter I got a bad virus and formatted. After the format I started with the newest drivers. The problem was still there after a format. So I reverted back to the 266 driver that has had good success. Still there.

I'm going with a hardware problem.. but that would make sense because I'm having artifacts once in a while at stock settings. Of course the card was factory overclocked so add that to the equation.

It seems good so far. Did you test while you got stutters? Anything under 1000 micro seconds is good. My rig gets around 90-100 micro seconds.

Some drivers/hardware do not work well with other hardware combinations.

Did you make any changes to your bios? its strange but sometimes changes that seem completely unrelated can have a big effect that cause stuttering, for example for my old 965p-ds3 board turning on CIA or changing ram mult to anything other then auto made the dpc latency go through the roof

Maybe your memory isnt stable. I believe when my ram didnt have enough voltage it gave me stutters.

Alot of the DDR3 that runs at 1.5 volts is supposed to be 2t timings. If your running 1t, you need more than stock voltage.

You can give it more than 1.5. Try 1.6 on the ram. Its perfectly fine. If that doesnt fix your problem, may you have power supply issue.
