Insane amount of issues with playing games on decent gaming rig.

My issues are with just about every game. No game uses my PC near its full potential. On BF4 I get like barely 60s on low with stutters, on BF3 it does the same thing, on BFBC2 it does the same on ultra, or whatever the highest is. I get 30s on DayZ SA, or on the mod, I get bad frames on GTA IV, Nether stutters, and AC4 doesn't even get 30s on lowest.

My Specs:
Processor: AMD FX-6350 (stock cpu cooler, but it doesn't get hot)
Video Card(s); SLI 650 Ti Boosts 2GB
PSU: 650 Watt Gold Modular Rosewill
Case: CoolerMaster Storm Scout
RAM: 2 Sticks of 1333 4GB Patriot RAM, and 2 sticks of 1600 4GB GSkill Ripjaw RAM I believe, but my mobo clocks it at 600, when I oc my ram it crashes without starting up my OS
Motherboard: ASRock 990FX Extreme4
Hard Drive: Green 500GB Western Digital
OS: Windows 8

It has decent cooling nothing gets past 60C, and most of the time it doesn't even use my gpus, but it usually likes to use a lot of my cpu, but it still doesn't make it past 60C

I really want to figure this out. It should be able to play most games on ultra, and I've looked up a lot of stuff trying to fix it, but I just have the weirdest of issues.

I would advice checking for DPC latency.
Also the motherboard is correct in saying 666MHz ram (It's DDR - Double Data Rate - so you double the number to 1333MHz)

http://gyazo.com/2c01e5802c3d9ca6bce814c6fd6b904c That's what showed up when I checked for DPC latency, I looked it up, and I tried disabling devices in device manager, and nothing changed, every now and again there was a spike though. What exactly does that mean?

Use LatencyMon to see what's causing it.

That's what I got after that, it says it's okay.


I would run it for longer than half a minute. I would run it for 5 minutes. And after 5 minutes screenshot the drivers tab.

The stuttering could be caused by driver issues and SLI. Check for driver updates for your card setup.

Also about the RAM you have installed. Is this 2X2Gb Patriot and 2X2Gb Gskill? If so, try taking the Patriots out and running with just the faster Gskill. Currently, as mentioned above, you are running at a lower speed than the Gskill is capable of hitting.

It's odd you saying it doesnt even use my GPU's. Could you run a benchmark in any of the games you listed and show the results screen?

I've kind of come to the solution that I don't have a big enough power supply because pretty much every game does it, and I'm just not getting any usage from the cards, like I will get 30% from each if I use both and if I use one I get 98%. It would only make sense if I was bottlenecked or if I didn't have enough power to use them both at 98%.
