AIDA64 causes stuttering in games (Asus ROG Strix Z390-F Gaming)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I hope this is the correct subforum.

 

So I bought an new PC a few days ago, and wanted to check temperatures and fan speeds.

Specs: i7 9700k, 2080 TI, 32 GB DDR4 RAM 3200 Mhz

Thats why I downloaded AIDA64 and a small Rainmeter Skin, to display it on my second screen.

Then while playing I had some stuttering / lags every 30 - 60 seconds.

When I closed AIDA64, the lags stopped.

I asked in reddit and some guy told me, that AIDA64 always stresses the CPU, and that the programm is not for monitoring.

And yea, I saw that, some cores always go to 80-90%d

I couldnt really believe it, so I decided I ask here :).

Is there a way to make AIDA64 just for monitoring, without stressing the CPU?

I didnt buy it yet, but I will if this is possible

Thanks, Maxy.

Do you have an Asus motherboard?

What you can try is to disable Embedded Controller (EC) support in AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Stability, and restart AIDA64 to apply the changes.  You will lose a few sensor readings that way, but it should help to get rid of the stuttering.
