Hey guys! I've been having trouble with my computer since I upgraded from my terrible old setup with parts I couldn't even begin to name. I've played Overwatch at a high level and the strange part is on my old computer (windows 8.1) I had absolutely no input lag. The second I upgraded is when things went horribly wrong.

For my new PC I installed windows 10 and everything seemed fine at first, but the strange part was I kept having trouble posting if I tried to overclock my ram to its specs. The ram was approved for the board as well so I had no idea what was going on there. Eventually I bought new ram and tweaked it until it posted easily. So that problem was solved. However I noticed a couple things. There was about a 50% chance when i booted my computer it would have input lag and more screen tearing than normal (as well as FPS drops). So naturally I spent the next 2 years replacing every living part in that computer after I had spent a lot of money on it in the first place and ended up with two computers...

So fast forward to today, I now have two fully built computers that can basically play any modern game (with the exception of a graphics card but we'll get to that). I'm hoping you guys can give me some insight as to what might be causing the issue as I'm out of ideas and money. I'm not around my computer at the moment but I'll do my best to get all the correct info about my two computers:


"Old" Computer

OS: Windows 8.1 (tested with same results in windows 10)
Motherboard: Asus Z170-A(Bios version: 3504)
CPU: Intel I7-6700K
CPU FAN: Noctua NH-D15
MEMORY: GSKILL Ripjaws V 32GB (2x16gb) 3200mhz
HDD: 850 Evo SSD
GPU: AMD R9 390 (yes its a little outdated)
PSU: 1000w (can't remember the brand of this but I can check if needed)
MONITOR: Asus PG279Q


"New" Computer
OS: Windows 8.1 (tested with same results in windows 10)
Motherboard: Asus Maximus IX Hero (Bios Version: 1009)
CPU: Intel I7-7700K
CPU FAN: Nzxt Kraken x61
MEMORY: GSKILL Trident Z 16gb (2x8gb) 3866mhz
HDD: 950 Pro M.2
GPU: EVGA FTW3 1080 ti
PSU: EVGA Platinum 1000w
MONITOR: Asus PG279Q

I've heard of issues relating to the Asus z170, which i guess is why they have so many bios updates. But I haven't heard of anything relating to the Maximus IX hero but I'm a little suspicious it has the same problems. Though of course I could be wrong in blaming the motherboard...but its the only consistency between the two computers other than the face both are using GSKILL ram. Keeping in mind I've tried corsair ram with the "old" computer with similar results.

Any help would be appreciated! Let me know if you need more info about my computers and I'll try my best to provide it.


EDIT: I Should note that every time i fresh install Windows (8 or 10) I'm input lag free until I restart. And I do have updates disabled on my current windows 8. I've tried with and without with the same issue.

If you bought an EVGA PQ instead of a P2 return it its not all that good its also massive overkill by the way
Also have you tried downloading shut up windows 10 and turning all the telemetry garbage off?

Sorry for digging, but i have found something that's really working for me...

First of all do clean windows install, install drivers and stuff, then disable windows update. Just don't mess with ur OS with placebo fixes, some of them will just make ur windows performance wors...

Download TimerTool

https://vvvv.org/contribution/windows-system-timer-tool

Launch ur favourite game and check current, it should be 0,5 ms (best scenario) or 1 ms. Now if u have as example 0,4969 or 0,9899 i mean the value is not EXACTLY 0,5 ms or 1 ms you have something called "desync".

Now run CMD as Administrator and paste these commands:

bcdedit /set useplatformclock no
bcdedit /set useplatformtick yes
bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes

Now restart your pc, check current in TimerTool and after you launch your game it should be exactly 0,5 ms or 1 ms, if it is - you can test how it feels now. You can use TimerTool to force 0,5 ms to have better fps results, it's up to you.

For me it fixed hitreg issues, stuttering when enemies has been peeking, everything started to be super smooth and ofc input lag on my mouse was gone and movement was consistent as it should be.
