Hi!

I have a problem, ultimately when I record with OBS (any game), I have these peaks FPS (without loss of frames in OBS and XSplit). Previously not happened to me, this is about 2 or 3 months going on.
This happens approximately every 1:50 minutes for ~5 seconds since start recording.

When I record with Mirillis Action (AVI file) this does not happen, when I record with XSplit or OBS (MP4 file - x264) happens.

My PC

  • CPU: OctalCore AMD FX-8350, 4119 MHz (20.5 x 201)
  • GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7850
  • RAM: 8GB (Kingston HyperX KHX1600C9D3 x 2)
  • MB: Asus M5A78L-M LX Plus
  • PSU: Cooler Master Extreme 2 725W

Problem Found

The problem is the CPU temperature, I have monitored the CPU temperature when these FPS spikes happens. When the temperature reaches 74°C (I know this shucks) the system reduces the CPU Operating Frequency (this increases the percentage of use by OBS or XSplit) and causes FPS spikes.

The solution was to change the thermal paste, with plans to get WATERCOOLING.

I hope this helps future cases.


Greetings.
