GTX 1060 Ryzen 5 1600 Frame Drops & Screen Tearing

Ive had nothing but issues since ive built this pc. Started off with BSOD, fixed that. Then went to freezes, fixed that. But now, I can be playing (CSGO, Pubg, GTA, etc.) at first i would start up CS and only get 220 fps on high settings, but it would keep dropping to 170 or lower and it even hits 100 some times, dipping into the 90's. Idk whats causing the problem though. It started to get better when i turned my settings down now I hit 300 fps sometimes but it still has really bad fps drops into the 90s and it stays like that for a few seconds. Ive tried switching the game to my ssd and it still give me fps drops. Im switched out my ram, ive reinstalled drivers and windows so many times. Ive defragmented my ssd and hard drive. Idk what it could be. Ive checked temps idle for gpu/cpu and they are normal. 35-45 C both idle, and 45-55 C Ingame CSGO. But PUBG my gpu starts to rise in temps more, but thats normal because of the game. Ive unplugged and plugged back in the PCI cable to the GPU, ive cleaned the dust, ive done a lot. But still dont know what it is. Any comment is helpful as i will try it inorder to see if it fixes it.

  1. Keep the stock.cooler it's close enough to a 212 to not justify switching it.

    First off try and oc my memory, ryzen loves fast memory, and 2400 single channel is anything but.

    Next try ocing the CPU to say 3.7 and see if that helps. With csgo disabling hyperthreading (smt) will likely help performance.

  2. Yeah the first issue I see is the one stick of ram and at slow speeds. Ryzen is a ram speed freak. Ideally you want to run 2 dimms at the fastest speed possible (usually DDR4 3200mhz). My guess is ram is your reason for the frame drops. Getting another stick will double your bandwidth...if your build is new enough You could also return the one you have and get two DDR4 3200 sticks. This should solve your issues.

    Ive tried those exact settings, and it decreased my fps to 60-90 fps. Idk why

  4. Play with your bioses(update or downgrade). I suspect yours has the OC and slow down to 1400 bug

    Ive done that. Ive tried the previous BIOS too. Also, inside csgo, theres this thing when i type net_graph 1 it pops up my fps and all that, theres this thing called sv, but i notice it spikes when my fps drops, but sometimes it drops when it doesnt spike either. Idk if you play cs or not but ima look it up n see what it is.
