asiandood Posted May 30, 2022 Share Posted May 30, 2022 Hi All, Specs: CPU: Ryzen 9 3900x @4.20GHz GPU: MSI RTX 2070 Super 8 GB RAM: 64GB @3200Mhz Storage: 1TB Blue WD SSD @450 rw/s speed Power Supply: Thermaltake 1200w Platinum Plus rating (because I intended to buy a RTX 3090 when they released) OS: Windows 10 Home Playing on 8k random generated map. I am the host of a 6 person friend group that play fairly often and while they seem to have great performance throughout the game I am getting 15-20 fps through most of it. But with my resource monitors on I am noticing my GPU, CPU, and RAM never go beyond 30% utilization. I have seen multiple threads of people being told it is a bottleneck issue at some part in their computer, but I specifically built this pc to handle servers of games like this or ARK. I turned "power management" in nvidia control panel to "maximum performance" for 7 DTD, but still never breach the 30% usage, while at least getting boosted to 30-40fps. My PC also stays cool enough to the point where my GPU fans don't even bother spinning, hardly ever going over 60 degrees Celsius. I'll get a lag spike and look over to my GPU and see the fans aren't spinning and my GPU utilization is under 20% sometimes during spikes. My home is typically kept at a 65 degrees Fahrenheit and my pc has 9 fans (4 intake, 5 exhaust) and AIO 360mm radiator liquid cooling which are 3 of the intake fans. Is there anything else I could check? I've tested my GPU across other games and it will run as hard as it needs to to get to 60fps with much more demanding games, and even at 4k. Benchmarked it across many games and at userbenchmark.com and got over 100% in everything but desktop (98%). I've hosted valheim for the same 6 players at 60fps 4k with absolutely no problems. An additional question I have is, would running a dedicated server off my pc be a viable solution? I've seen the game run 60fps+ no problem when I'm not the host, but for some reason as soon as I'm the host I am hitting walls. I will still technically be the host but maybe the server will start to actually use my CPU and RAM properly instead of capping itself while hosting regularly in game? Any help is greatly appreciated! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
