I did set it up in the Nvidia control panel, but not the monitor. Sounds like this could be the problem.
Interesting, they were set to large so I have switched it over to medium. Thanks for the input! I will update if I have any future issues.
@Ace - I am using a DP
@Rin - I am using the same DP cable that I had with my 1080P monitors and haven't had an issue with resolution changing since buying them about 1.5 years ago.
Lately, the custom scaling is also going back to default as well. I set it to 175% to make everything larger, and will constantly have to change this back as well. I am assuming they are correlated as the scaling is also found on the resolution page.
So pretty much I'd have to match the max refresh rate on the new monitor to avoid tearing?
I have freesync monitors at this current point, so I haven't seen screen tearing for the most part.
I thought the exact same about the resolution. I’m assuming there would be black bars on almost every game.
Which one were you considering? I’m weighing a lot of different ones.
I definitely wanted to sway this way after further researching the two and comparing them. I didn't realize that I would also have to get a new motherboard to match, and the 2700x also comes with a cooler as well so I saved a few dollars going that route. I don't know if I would even notice a difference on the current monitors as they are 60Hz. Upgrading gets expensive real fast loll!
I appreciate the comment, and totally agree. I am hoping that the additional cores will help to start, and then when I get $600 together, I'll upgrade the GPU as well and have a monster rig.
Well, issue is back and worse...
GPU got to about 130F and CPU got to about 110F.
I just ran the Heaven benchmark testing and was doing 15-20FPS.
Well this is odd, re-installed my drivers and now I am getting the results I expected...
Just a bug with the last driver update?
This was actually the results after just turning on my pc for the first time today.
Interesting, I will have to look that up.
I'll update this with CPU/GPU usage when I get the chance, although I am almost positive the last time I saw the CPU usage, it was at like 30%.
The only game I currently play across the 3 monitors is Witcher 3 currently.
That is good to know. My system is only for gaming.
It is completely random, even when PUBG was incredibly un-optimized. A good example(when un-optimized) is every now and then, when I would be in a relatively close shoot out with someone, my FPS would drop so bad, that the screen froze. It sometimes would hold the same frame for 5-10 seconds. It was as soon as the muzzle flash went off. The new optimized test server has been much better, but yesterday it was the same type of issue but only with a frame drop. I was playing squads and we were in a small town. A fire fight happened and my FPS dropped to about 10 for 20 seconds or so, down from the consistent 60 I have been seeing. It will also do this randomly when looting small towns too.
Same thing went for Rocket League. Sometimes I'll go 10+ games without a stutter. And then other times it will be a severe drop with every demolition.
I do have Freesync enabled as I have Samsung Freesync monitors. I have checked the RAM usage through control panel while playing PUBG. It is a constistent 8GB. I have 2x8GB G.Skill Ripjaws V 2400.
Here is what I have tried/what I have found...
-Have you run a tool like MSI afterburner and witnessed any anomalies in the data when the freezes occur?
I have used MSI Afterburner, but haven't been able to pull it up quick enough to see if anything is spiking. I'll play tonight and try to have my afterburner on my other monitor so I can clearly see changes whent he stuttering occurs.
-Does the problem still occur when you drop your OC?
The standard OC from the BIOS has been the most stable. Subtle changes using afterburner has resulted in worse performance.
-Do you have your BIOS and/or GPU drivers up to date?
BIOS and drivers are up to date.
-Have you run GPU intensive benchmarking and witnessed it during that?
I have used the Heaven benchmarking. I ran it for about an hour and frames/temps were pretty consistent. No stuttering was seen.
-How about CPU intensive benchmarking?
I have not done this. Is there a preferred benchmarking test?
-Try taking a stick of RAM out and playing. Problem still there?
I will try this as I never see over 8GB being used.
-Replace it and try the other stick?
Will try this after the previous test.
-Do you have an alternative GPU you could try, even if it is old?
I do not.
Main games: Witcher 3, Pubg (I now play the test server which is 1000x better optemized), Rocket League
Witcher 3 is pretty consistent, PUBG still has it's moments where it can go up to 20 seconds of choppy, and even Rocket League sometimes stutters like crazy during demolitions.
Do you have a preferred stress testing program? I do believe I have vsync enabled. VRAM should be set to 4GB, but I'll have to check.
Thanks for the feedback gorkti.
Current set up is triple monitor, 27" 1080P, 60Hz. Most games I only use the single monitor.
The problem that I have is occasional stuttering and FPS drops. Sometimes it's held for 3-5 seconds (depending on the game). I have tried overclocking with mixed results. Typically the stuttering would get worse. Is there a preferred guide to follow?
Edit: I'm currently using the standard overclock setting in the Bios
I also have a triple 27" 1080P set up. I don't use it very often, but that is one of the big reasons I want to upgrade both CPU and GPU in the future. Let me know if you need any other specs.
I do have 16GB's already. I was planning on going the GTX route in the future, the price is just holding me back from upgrading so quickly.
Once again, I appreciate the feedback. Since I have a little mic that mounts to my monitor, and I preferred to have headphones without a mic, I went with the HD598. Thanks!
Slkipp, thank you for all the suggestions. Doing my research right now on them all.
I have the Xonar DB sound card.
I've actually had problems directly out of the box with the mic, followed all tutorials I could find online. I had my mic cable plug directly into it, and it never worked. I bought this little mic from best buy for $40 that clips to the monitor.
Thanks for all the responses. Glad to hear it is not just me with these issues. Hopefully when the game is fully released, it will actually be optemized.
I have the RX 580. I can't use all 3 on some games, and Rocket League is a game I play a lot. If I use all 3, I start to get severe motion sickness.
This was the answer I was looking for. I was just curious as to why, but that makes sense. Thank you.
I might be confused with this response, but the Witcher 3, when set to 1920x1080, will boot the same image on all three screens. So all three screens are being utilized.
Thanks Ahryi. The one benefit that I have is a pretty solid EQ program for the sound card. I can set quite a few different things including individual speaker volume w/in the headset (although I haven't played too much with it).
I do agree though, I debated on going with the new wireless A50's instead of the mixamp to remove the wire mess. Based on the fact that the price tag doesn't match the quality that they should be, I am happy that I didn't go this route.
I ended up going with the Asus Xonar DG. I did putz with the EQ on the program that comes with the Xonar DG and I am definitely much more satisfied. One of the games I was having difficulty with hearing where shots were coming from was on Battlegrounds. I wanted to deafen/minimize certain ranges and one of the EQ settings more than helped with that. I will have to look up DSP as I am not 100% sure what that is.
Overall though, the sound card was a great improvement though and I can't argue much with the $35 tag attached to it.
@Given, Overall, my goal was to get the A40 quality to what I would expect out of $200 headphones. I did buy the sound card, and I was able to get it hooked up through the mixamp and it sounds much better overall. However, I am not sure if it is the mixamp, or the headphones that are the limiting factor.
@Evil, Thanks for the feedback. I should have done my research prior to purchasing the mixamp.
Thanks for the feedback from both of you. Originally, I planned on the one monitor but 1.5 months later I couldn't help but purchase the other two.
Thank you, I appreciate the response!
Interesting, wonder if it might be due to creating the install from my mac. I'll give a windows computer a go and report back.
Awesome, thank you to all that responded!
Thanks for the response! Why do you recommend a screen 25 inches or less? Is the Samsung a bit overkill?
Thanks! What is the reasoning behind the Radeon video card vs. the GTX 1060? Completely new to this so just me not knowing.
