I thought about it but I tested it using the WDC software and it passed the tests.
To be honest I see no big fps difference between 1920x1080 and 1024x768 (which I do use, just preference). I don't know which games are single threaded, but I guess the games I'm playing aren't. I'm currently only playing CS GO (which has multi core rendering) and DayZ Standalone. CS GO is a CPU intensive game. I think it's same to DayZ. I also tried fifa 16 and it runs smooth on 60 fps, but when I tried to uncap fps I was getting stuttering there as well (maybe my fps was dropping, I didn't check the fps while playing it, I'll do check if you want to).
If I host a game on my pc and it's just me playing on it, I can say it's running fine. But after adding a few bots the stuttering starts again.
For example yesterday I was using "noclip" command in cs go, which basically makes you able to fly around the map. While flying I was getting massive stuttering even if my fps was at 300 the whole time. After stopped flying and just started walking around the game was way smoother and playable. Today when I tried that again I wasn't lagging anymore. After that I added a few bots and my fps went down a bit (from 300 to ~200) and the stuttering was massive already (since I'm using 144 hz monitor, anything below 144 hz should be unplayable, but 200 should be great, instead I was feeling like I'm playing on 60 fps). I was hosting the game and as I know hosting a game in my own PC makes cpu load even more.
When I added 9 bots in total I was getting ~100 fps, so the lag was justified, even though it felt like I was playing on 20-30 fps. The fps drop is normal, that's probably the best I can get with this CPU. My friend is getting 190-200 fps with his i5-4690 when adding 9 bots. It's the stuttering that's odd.
Also when I'm playing competitive which consists of 10 total players I get that stuttering feeling even if my fps is almost the same as when hosting a game and it's just me on the server.
There's a warmup before a game starts and every time a player joins the server I can feel the game stuttering more and more until it gets unplayable.
I'm just out of ideas and my warranty expires on 22 this month.. I just don't know what to do. They are testing it using benchmarks so if they see the fps is normal they'll say nothing is wrong with it.
By the way I upgraded to windows 10 and I don't get desktop lag anymore. Also the game feels a bit smoother but still not enough. Keyboard and sometimes wi-fi adapter are still disconnecting. Still can't change the voltage of the CPU, it won't boot if it's not set on auto. Also system compressed memory in task manager is sometimes using a few percents of cpu and sometimes a few hundred of mb from memoryEdited by mihai21ro - 6/1/16 at 9:25am
