Maybe it's your monitor.
Hello, I've been struggling with consistent stutter through out the last 1.5 years and with 3 totally different PC builds. Stutters occur in all games more or less. The stuttering makes PUBG almost unplayable even though I have stable 140fps~ all of the time.
I7-7700k with Corsair H115i
Gigabyte GTX 1070Ti
Corsair Vengenace DDR4 2x8GB 3200Mhz
Samsung EVO 960 NVMe M.2 500GB
Things I tried :
Reinstalling Windows multiple times and multiple versions (Win7, Win 10 1607, Win10 1703, 1709)
Trying various versions of Nvidia's drivers (at the moment using the newest ones)
Letting Windows 10 automatically install device drivers
Installing all drivers from Asus's page
Overclocking CPU/Overclocking GPU
Using different Nvidia settings
Enabling high-performance plan mode in Windows 10
Trying different monitors, keyboards and mice
Trying different internet providers
Tried disabling various Windows 10 services
Disabled Windows 10 updates and Windows defender
I'm using 144 hz monitor and have stable 100/100 internet with no ping spikes. I have stable fps about 100+ in all the games I play. I don't have FPS spikes or thermal issues. CPU, GPU, memory are properly stress tested and working properly.
I'm using Windows 10 1607 version because on newer versions the stuttering is even worse.
I've pretty much ran out of ideas on what to do.
I've read something about this issue being because of Nvidia's new drivers, but I can't install older drivers than 388.13, because I'm using gtx 1070ti and it just won't let me install older drivers because of system compatibility check, which comes out negative if I try to do that.
