Both in game and just UI as soon as i start the pc it's stuttering with audio stutter as well. Every week or so there will be a day or two when it works perfectly, then the next day back to stuttering. Black screens are also common. PC will freeze for a few seconds then go black for a few then back.

I tried switching my one ram stick to the other slot and my pc didn't post, so i put it back and then my pc worked perfectly for a couple days then started stuttering again. I suspect the ram my be the issue but not sure.

I've monitored temps, all fine, usage is fine EXCEPT for something i just noticed today.
When my pc stutters the "3D" under gpu usage spikes.
One thing that will consistantly make it stutter is opening an application that requires admin permission. The screen it goes to and the sound cause audio and visual stutter and "3D" gpu usage always spikes to 100%

Also everything works fine in safe mode

Cpu: Ryzen 7 1700
Gpu: gtx 1060 6gb
motherboard: asrock ab350m-HDV
Ram: Patriot 8GB Viper 4 DDR4 PC4-19200 2400MHz
PSU: Corsair CX750M

HWINFO Results included
I also ran MEMTEST and got no errors

All help is apreciated

Yeppoon, QLD, Australia.
at least with audio stuttering, I find the most common reason is background processes.
probably why it's all good in Safe Mode.

so you could try turning off whatever you don't need from msconfig, like AV software and see if it helps.
