Solved Having massive fps drops + DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION windows 10

May 22, 2018 at 18:53:59
Specs: Windows 10
Lately I have been experiencing really bad fps drops and my computer has been crashing. I recently built my computer and haven't had any issues with it since I installed a new update a few days ago.

Specs
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600
CPU Cooler: Wraith spire cooler
GPU: Gigabyte GeForceĀ® GTX 1060 G1 Gaming 6G
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-AB350-Gaming 3
Hard Drive: WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive
Power supply: corsair cx650

The lag spikes seem to only happen when I try to load up a game on CS:GO; I usually run cs at 300fps but it has been dropping to around 50 and even lower.

Can you check for me if HPET(high precision event timer is turned on?)

it should be disabled by default on windows 10

turning it on for me gave massive frame drops when moving the mouse, i had to turn it on for GPUPI - benchmark

Have you checked your CPU & GPU temps? Scanned for viruses & malware? Managed your startup apps?

Sounds like you need to update/install drivers. If you put the minidump up somewhere, I'll see if I can't find the specific driver causing the BSOD.

also have you done any memory overclocking? because it could just be driver corruption due to a memory overclock
