Ryzen 5 1600 & GTX 1060 Frame Drops and Stuttering.

SO, this all started back last Christmas. I had bought'n am RX480 from MSI. At first, the card was great, and performance was suitable. At that time, I had an FX 8320, Gigabyte Mobo, and 8GB of Adata Ram. Unfortunately, I began Noticing FPS drops and stuttering in games that should not be getting issues. Games such as CSGO and Doom. After narrowing down the possible issues. I determined that the issue was the GPU. I had it RMA'd and MSI returned me my money. With that I bought the same card (MSI Gaming X) In the form of a GTX 1060. Anyways, While my Fire-strike score doubled, (around 4300 to 8600) I still had noticeable stuttering and frame drops. OK, at this point, I knew I was going to upgrade to Ryzen, so I didn't worry too much about it. Moving on, I had bought'n a Ryzen 5 1600, an MSI B350 PC Mate Mobo, and 16BG of Corsair Vengeance LED RAM clocked at 2666mhz. I also bought a 120gb SSD from Kingston. I was very excited, as I do many things besides Gaming, such as editing, and scripting. Ok, when all the parts were in, we booted up. We ran fire-strike, and the score LOWERED from 8689 to 8243. At this point, I was a bit shocked. Since I was going to anyways, I decided to Factory Reset the PC and Move Windows to the SSD. I thought this would solve the issues. Nope! Even after a factory reset, the score on Fire-strike was still around 8300 or so. In game was even worse. Low frames everywhere, and massive amounts of stutter. I'm starting to get pretty frustrated as I am running out of Ideas. Thank's everyone. Just looking for some help.

    Maybe your power supply is bad. That's the one consistent thing across all of this. If your PSU can't push enough power to your GPU performance will suffer.

  2. First thing i would try is a fresh install of windows not a factory reset. Factory reset to me means a prebuilt computer, so if you factory reset the OS and them moved it to the new computer you now have two different motherboard drivers which can cause issues.

    Next what is the make and model of the PSU, did you move it over form the old system?

  3. You should use some sort of diagnostic tool to find the source of the problem. Lots of people use MSI after burner or FRAPS. I use GPU-Z and CPU-Z on a second monitor display. I found out that my GPU was overheating and throttling down to 500Mhz during heavy loads. You should try using them while running your benchmarks.

    Btw, I found out that the culprit was my case. It didn't have proper ventilation. When I took off the side panel, the temperature dropped by 20 degrees Celsius! Once I replaced the case the GPU no longer throttled.

    PSU is a 600W EVGA B+. I should have enough power. Unless the unit is defective.

    EVGA 600W B+. I've had it since December 2015 when I first bought my PC.
