    Poorly running PC, FPS lags, freezes, crashes.

    Hey guys, I'm wondering if anyone can help me sort out what's going on with my PC.

    Now my PC is no super computer, but it's decent. It can run BFV on high with no issues at all.
    I'm having all sorts of weird issues though, It's taking forever to boot up, games like DOTA2 have issues loading the map, it sometimes crashes and I have to restart the computer, FPS games get huge freezes.
    Yesterday I formatted my whole PC and reinstalled BFV, It was running awesome for about 5 maps but now it's gone back to being unplayable. I've downloaded Rammap and have cleared standby memory, I'm not running any extra processes in the background (Literally only have origin on this format.)
    I have similar issues with Rainbow 6 Siege and PUBG where my PC will lag when I fire at an enemy.
    I'm stumped!

    Here's a snip of my specs, I don't think there's anything in particular that is holding me back?
    Keen to hear from anyone else who knows of a fix or has had similar issues

    Reinstall chipset drivers if you havent for you PC, https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard...port-dl-driver
    also single channel ram almost half the performance of dual channel memory in some games looking at 50% in some

    Re-do your cables if something is not plugged in properly ( sata, psu etc)
    or your psu is pooped

    Sounds like its overheating, whats your cooling like? Are the fans clean? Have you reapplyed thermal paste to the HSF?

    FYI using a single stick of memory will be affecting performance, you need two to enable dual channel and gain the additional memory bandwidth.

    Is the OS installed to one of the SSD's? Likewise your games?

    Games and OS are on the SSD. I didn't know that about the RAM, I'll have a look into that though, thanks.

    I updated the chipset drivers and it seems to be running well, I don't have high hopes for it lasting but it's working well as of now

    Sounds like thermals to me. Download hwmonitor and have that running while you try to play some BFV or w/e.

    When it gets unplayable check your CPU and GPU temps.

    Check SMART data of your OS drive using HDSentinel or CrystalDisk. If you have read errors (causes delay/crash etc.) it could be a bad SATA cable.

    This sounds like drive or RAM errors. The last two could be drivers but the first two wouldn't be.

    The drives appear to be components you reused on your new build as well.

    Get this, $50, double your SSD storage, slight performance improvement and eliminate the older drives being the problem.

    Or this for a massive boost in performance that you'll hardly notice:

    $90 and your motherboard supports it.

    Those readings for ram and card don't look accurate to me. Try GPU-Z and CPU-Z instead of Speccy.
