I've tried many things so far to try and fix this issue, anytime OBS is open (both studio and classic) my FPS goes from 200+ to 20fps. Even if its not recording/streaming and preview is off. The only thing that I found fixed it for a short time was setting the encoder to Nvidia NVENC which no longer works.

    If its not recording/streaming and preview is off then it's impact should be close to zero.
    Open up task manager and check what is occupying your CPU time.
