Hi.

About three months, my GPU gave me a black screen for like 10 seconds, while i was playing Multiplayer Modern Warfare (2019) then returned to normal. That happened a couple times, then this weird stutter, frametime spike or my screen freeze for like a half second, happens randomly when im gaming. I did a fresh new Windows Install, trying to fix the issue, but when it was loading, the Windows logo screen seemed kinda weird (it was some kind off scanlines above the Windows logo) and im not sure that it has something to do with the video but im afraid it does. Im always up to date with the lastest drivers.

Anyway, ive been Testing on COD MW (2019), Hellblade, The Withcer 3 and COD BO Cold War at 140 fps locked on Rivatuner, to match the 144hz of my monitor, and VSYNC On inside the game settings with the same results. 1080p Medium settings all games, even with low settings i have the stutter issue.

- MOBO BIOS version is E7B22IMS.2B0
- Windows version is 19041.630.
- I have the lastest Nvidia Drivers 457.30 and did a fresh install using DDU.
- The PSU is Corsair RM750W 2019 version and its 2 months old.
- The refesh rate is 144 Hz 1920 x 1080 in game and also out the game.
- Im using the standar DP Cable that came with the monitor.

Honestly, ive been trying to find a solution in several forums and tried lots of thinga that nothing seems to help. Any help would be very apreciated.

My Specs:
  • CPU i5 8400
  • GPU MSI RTX 2060 Gaming Z
  • Mobo MSI B360 Gaming Plus
  • 2 x 8 gb 2666 Mhz HyperX Fury
  • SSD Samsung EVO 860 500 Gb
  • PSU Corsair RM 750 W 80+ Gold
  • Monitor AOC G2590PX 144hz 1ms

Beside obvious reinstallation of drivers, checking other components, temperatures, frequencies, latencies, i think your GPU might be bad.

This sounds like the stutter i got from having bitdefender installed - what software do you have running while gaming?

Im on the lastest drivers to this day, cpu temp is between 50° - 60° and GPU 68° - 70° while gaming. Any recommendation to corroborate is the bad gpu?

Nope, i dont have Bitdefender installed. I only have the default gaming launchers installed on (Steam, Blizzard, etc) but only open as the game requieres, Discord, Adobe Acrobat DC.

Run Resource Monitor and keep an eye on it whenever there is a stutter. Can use GPUZ to record a log of other things.

I have now installed GPUZ. What should i specifically record to the save sensor log?


How should i check it? Im kinda lost at that. Any advice?

Run a *long* CPU benchmark like cinebench R23, see results. Blow fan over VRM, repeat test.
If your CPU

You can also do this with a room fan and blow a friggin hurricane inside your PC to blindly check if some random component is overheating during gaming, and see if the stutter goes away (but this is a hell of a lot less scientific)

GpuZ logs all sensor listed, record it while running cinebench like @Mussels suggested. Dont forget to note the time when stutters occur during logging, it makes it easier when reviewing the log.

That's a pretty low power CPU, I really doubt the VRMs have anything to do with this.
