A 4.4ghz 4790k

Hey guys,

Specs:

Specs:
PSU: Corsair RM 650W
OS: Windows 10
Motherboard: Gigabyte z97x Gaming 5
CPU: i7 4790k @ 4.4ghz
Memory: 16GB DDR3
Hard Drive: SSD w/ Windows + 500GB Western Digital Black
Video Card: GTX 1080 (same things happened with R9 390X)

I was wondering if my CPU being set up to 4.4ghz could be causing issues in my games (CS:GO in particular) even if temps are fine? Is there some other thing that could be messing with it?

I stutter some, I have times where my game gets super "ripply" or "choppy" as if I can see each individual frame. This happens whether I cap my FPS lower or set the max to 0 and let it fly up to the 400-500 hundreds.

It's happened on an R9 390x as well as this new GTX 1080.

I didn't actually do the OC stuff myself, but I've never had issues with it to my knowledge..never any crashes / blue screening. Anytime I've checked temps they've been fine (I haven't recently, but I did other times I tried to figure this out).

Any ideas?

  1. What is the CPU load at when the stuttering is happening?

    I will have to check on that. I've done a lot of monitoring in the past but I've since reformatted and everything else and lost the screenshots and forgotten the information.

    I go through stages where I can't take it anymore and try to find a solution and eventually give up lol. I thought maybe it was just the GPU but here we are with a 1080 and still getting it.
