The game I am playing is Elsword. This game worked fine with nearly no lag at all back then when I first custom built this computer. But then I remember some BSOD happened and I ended up having to reinstall Windows and now Elsword is lagging like crazy when I play. However, for games like League Of Legends, I have constant FPS and only on rare occasions I would experience lag.
On League it would sometimes freeze (maybe for around 3 seconds) when I die.
Whenever mobs spawn I lag to 1-3 FPS, but when I die in the game I get around 20-25 FPS. When idle, constant 40 fps (because thats the limit the game sets when idle inm villages)
Here is GPU-Z, Speedfan temps, Catalyst, task manager, and MSI afterburner.
http://puu.sh/sR8D3.png The one thing I think is strange is Catalyst, on Activity there is 0% (sometimes it goes to 23% or some sort of random number), and on power there is constant 0%.
Here is MSI afterburner again when I play the game and then go idle: http://puu.sh/sR8T9.png
So during the game, the GPU usage goes pretty high and even after I go idle it stays high but I still have the 40 fps (limited so 40 is max) in game.
I also performed SMART on my SSD with SpeedFan and Speedfan says it has 100% fitness and 100% performance for detailed information.
Here is GPU-Z again, http://puu.sh/sR92m.png
The GPU load in the image is 0% and oftenly stays that way but it sometimes also changes to 2%, 5%, 7% and sometimes even 70%.
Yes I have disabled ULPS with MSI afterburner.
Yes I have tried updating to the latest AMD driver for my AMD R9 380, however I went back to the version that came in the disc (16.6) since updating it didn't help at all.
I have scanned for malware with Malwarebytez and scanned for viruses with AVG. I've also cleaned the registry and other junk with CCleaner.
I have not yet tried Stresstest because I am a bit nervous about purposing crashing the GPU especially when I'm not sure how to properly stresstest. If possible, I'd rather not at all.
I cannot try putting the GPU in another computer.
In Device Manager, under Display Adapters there is only AMD Radeon R9 380 Series listed. Nothing else.
These are my power options. http://puu.sh/sR9Ed.png
If possible, I would like to try out new possible solutions.. please help and educate me in the process.
I would also like to know if buying a new GPU will help me. And if so, I would like a recommendation. The only things I do is some 3D editting, watching videos and playing League, Elsword, and osu!
