In game stuttering after overclocking

I just built a new pc and learned about overclocking so a few weeks after building it i had tried overclocking my ryzen 3 1200 cpu from 3100 ghz to 3800 ghz and the voltage from 1.0v to 1.3v , i ran a performance test and benchmark to see if it was stable and everything worked. Everything was working good for about two weeks or so then i started to get random stuttering in game. So i tried other games to see if it was just my internet connection or the game server but the stuttering would happen in every game i played.

In every game when the stuttering would happen my fps and ping were all fine, nothing would spike, it was just the game (or the computer itself) stuttering. The stuttering would occur about every 5-10 minutes more or less and it would only last about 5-10 seconds. I've tried finding fixes for it but so far i have found nothing that has helped so any input to fix this would be appreciated :) thank you for reading this, if you need more information to try and find a solution for this then just ask

  1. what performance test did you run? monitor CPU/GPU temperature and usage during game, could be high temp throttling.

  2. i did a stress test using prime 95, benchmark with cinebench. during game usage i think it gets up to 50 maybe 60 c but im not sure cause i havent monitored it yet. but touching the outside of the case its not hot at all, barely even warm, thats the cpu not the gpu, im not sure how that one is

  3. i should probably add that during the stress test the cpu got up to 100 c which i know isnt good...so i stopped it there, but during the benchmark it got up to 60-70 c i think

  4. I suggest you lower your OC Hz

  5. as of now i have everything reset to how it was before i OC it , and im still getting the stuttering in all games. right now my cpu is at 3100 ghz and the voltage is at 1.0v

    Use GPU-Z to monitor your GPU temp during game. Also hard drive usage/ram usage

  7. are there other programs to see hard drive and ram usage? sorry im still new to all this :(

  8. task manager > performance > resource monitor

  9. for disk which im assuming is the hard drive it goes from 0% to 3% , for memory which im guessing is ram is at 46%. im not in game right now though. i will check it all again when in game

  10. how much ram do you have? what is using those ram at idle?
    Reply to vapour
  11. i have 8 gb of ram , i had a game client open and youtube but i just closed it all and now just have this tab open. and the ram usage is now at 30%
