Upgraded PC to stream and game on same PC and I still get constant stutter.

Here is rough specs.

CPU - Core i5 8600k
MB ASROCK z390 EXTREME4
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB VRAM
16GB Dual Core 2666
500 GB Samsung SSD
2TB HDD

I recently upgraded my MOBO CPU and Ram (looking to do ram again potentially to something more around 4khz.

Either way though, when I started fresh with the build there was basically no problems streaming and gaming fortnite at 144fps constantly. Now however as soon as i open streamlabs the game is basically unplayable in comparison.

NOTE: my frames stay constant at 144 but the stutter makes it feel like less than 30 FPS.

I've overclocked CPU to 4.5 up to 5ghz with no change at all.

I play LOWEST graphics. Fortnite still chews between 30-50CPU usage. streamlabs generally uses around 15-20%

No issues with TEMPS I can confirm this through both HWMonitor, MSI afterburner and A-Tuning for Asrock mobos.

I guess the simple question is, is the i5 8600k just not strong enough to output 720p stream and not stutter in game (even when it says frames are 144). Or is there some setting or firmware or software thats messing things up. As I said it initially seemed to be working pretty darn good to be honest and got worse over the course of 2 weeks.

Anyhow Ill leave it here and see what we have to say, thanks in advance.

Your PSU is not gold plated. It is referred to as Gold Rated. lmfao.

You guys may have stumbled upon the issue. Gold is a soft metal; maybe your PSU has started to melt OP

Hi,

What encoder are you using for your streams?

I use Streamlabs.

However I stumbled upon at least a temporary fix.

Followed these steps and now streaming and gaming is fine no hiccups.
