Strictly a single 230W AC adapter during operation.
After receiving my 330W AC adapters, I noticed that the brick was cooler under load, but I still had the periodic stuttering. When playing CSGO, anytime I would press escape to access the menu, there would be a lengthy pause and stutter even though I was running the game at a ridiculous FPS on 1440p without much hardware stress. After some thought and frustration, I decided to disable G-Sync to my external monitor since I only ever experienced the stuttering during my sessions on the Dell monitor. After doing so, all of my issues were gone. Not sure how to rectify this situation with the monitor, but I'm sure there's some kind of conflict. I'm pretty busy at the moment, so I haven't been able to sit down and play with the configurations, so if anyone has any ideas, let me know!
The stuttering is likely due to moments when the game's framerate drops below the monitor's refresh rate, which activates G-Sync. Assuming you have a 1440p monitor with a 144 Hz refresh rate, use RivaTuner Statistics Server to cap CS:GO's framerate to 136, re-enable G-Sync, and see if it goes away.
I never thought about that... Pressing tab or escape causes a stutter in CSGO no matter the hardware configuration, thus causing G-Sync to enable. I should have remembered that. I guess I was having a hard time linking that together with other games I've played where I've had stuttering occur because those other titles rarely achieved 144+ FPS. It makes perfect sense when I look back on all the scenarios where the stuttering has occurred.
I wonder if I can globally limit all titles to 140 FPS.
Thanks for this tip! I'll try to confirm it when I get back to my desk.
Due to all the different engines etc a global limit would be tricky to enforce.
Which is why you have to do it on an application-by-application basis. RTSS makes it easy. All you have to do is point the program to the game's .exe file, set your framerate limit and any other settings, and you're good to go. I don't have a ton of games installed at the moment, but all of them I've tried have worked flawlessly.
Sounds like a decent solution.
Not even with Nvidia Inspector?
That's another way, I suppose. I've not tried it because RTSS does what I need.
