GPU Stuttering when gaming. (Also gpu usage drops instantly for a brief moment)

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hello guys!
I need help please, when i play games every 2-3 sec there is a short freeze, so i looked deeper into the problem, and i downloaded MSI with rivatuner to check usages live ingame.
So it seems as if, every time i have this freeze/stuttering the gpu usage drops from 99% to 3% or something like that for a sec.
Even when it drops from 99 instantly to 90% there is small lag, but the big ones when it drops to like 3-10%
it happens randomly, heres my rig info:
i5 3570k 4.5Ghz
16gb ram 1600mhz. (i have 2 different 1600mhz sticks, both run on same color of each kind, so the g.skill runs on blue, and corsair on black.
p8z77-V
Gtx 770 4gb
Corsair TX750

I have no idea what can this be, it just started couple of days ago, i thought its the psu (i have corsair 550W 6 years old psu) so i switched today to the tx750 and it still stutters.
Thanks ahead :s

(also forgot to say, all temps are normal, gpu max temp around 67c and cpu 51c at max).

CPU seems to be around 40-60% usage, it does not just drop without a reason or anything. looks like its not cpu related.

Is this a new game or one you've played for a while?

Did you recently update drivers?

Might the ram both have XMP? Could they differ enough to cause that performance issue?

Just to be clear, do you have 2 8GB sticks, or 2 different brands of 4GB sticks?

From the symptoms you describe, it sounds like either the RAM is maxed, the VRAM is maxed.

I have 2 different brands of 2x4gb sticks.
I have:
2x4gb kingston hyperx blu 1600mhz
2x4gb corsair vengeance red 1600 mhz

the kingston run together on blue ram slots, while corsair run on blackram slots.
on bios both run on xmp profile 1 1.5v
Its impossible tho that 16gb ram or 4gb vram would be maxed playing arma 3 or bf4.

Are the Cas and Ras timings the same? If not I would try to manual set without XMP and see if they do better.
