MSI 980ti microstutters in open world games.

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,


Im opening this thread here although is not flight sim directly related, but the problem i have also affects both P3D and X-Plane.
I don't know if this is is the right place to put this, i ask moderators to move, if it's not.


I recently upgraded my Card from a GTX 970 to a 980Ti and i started to have problems with some games, i got microstutters like small freezes from
time to time that causes a little FPS drop of 4/5 FPS's, enough to ruin the game immersion.
From my intensive testing, this is only happening in open world games, example: Euro Truck Simulator 2, Arma 3, Robocraft, Spintires, etc. Other games
like Insurgency, Chivalry, CS, etc run well, even benchmarks like 3D Mark run without problems and with good scores.

My Specs:

i7 4970k
Asus Z97-E
Cooler master seidon v2
16 GB GSkill 2400Mhz (4 dimms)
SSD Crucial MX100 500GB Sata (operating System)
SSD Crucial MX200 500GB M.2
2 HDD 1TB and 2TB (no games installed here)
Corsair RM850x

What tried so far in terms of software and iron without success:

Clean Install of all Operating Systems, Windows 7, 8.1, 10 (all x64).
Several NVIDiA drivers, tried 3/4 different always using DDU.
No AV's, no Firewalls installed, MalwareBytes shows a clean computer.
CristalDisk shows all healthy Disk's.
MemTest86 shows no errors on rAM.
All kinds of combinations with the dimm's, removing ram, adding ram, changing slots, etc.
Overclok, underclok, im going to smash this computer clock, default setting's in both CPU and GPU (temps are always good for both)
Bios update.
System drivers update.
Windows update.
Tried both PCI-e Slots on mobo.
Removing all disk's except the one that as the operating system.
Smear myself in oil and play naked.

Im runnig out of ideas and getting a little desperated, need some fresh ideias and expertise.

Thank you

Try to clear CMOS memory and another reflash bios...usually a good step if things start to act weird
