so i obviously use streamlabs obs for streaming.
My computer specs are the following:
CPU: Intel Core i7 4790K 4.0 GHz 8MB
RAM: Corsair 16GB DDR3 1600 Mhz VENGEANCE LP
GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1070 8GB Gaming X
Motherboard: MSI Z97-G45 Gaming
PSU: EVGA Supernova G2 650W
I never experienced these kind of issues before and i could play and stream in 1280x720 @ 60 FPS without any stuttering issues.
My CPU usage never go above 10% while streaming, it’s like my cpu is “dead”.
I have disabled all CPU throttling in bios and windows but the issue still persists along with the stuttering.
Note that my games do not stutter when i’m not streaming.
I can provide more information from SLOBS log if needed.
Thanks in advance!

I had a closer look in my Speccy and CPU-Z and saw that it said that my GPU was using link width x8 instead of x16 (v3) which made me think that maybe i had my graphics card in the wrong slot.
Which i had, so i moved it to the correct slot (the one closest to the CPU) and my PC's performance is waaay more stable now.
