Encoder overload NVENC (new) while recording

Hi there,

I have a PC that should be more than capable of playing & recording and for some reason I get encoder overload whilst recording resulting in 1-2 second freezes in my recordings.

I have troubleshooted a few fixes listed in this forum and still cannot understand why it is overloading.

My Specs:
CPU - i9 10900k
GPU - GTX 3080
32gb Ram

I have attached the log for my last recording and hope someone can help with an idea of how I can improve the performance?

Any suggestions are appreciated!

With the exception of the refresh rate of 1 monitor (165FPS), your log looks OK. Have you always lagged frames with these settings or is it just starting? How full is your D drive?

Yeah I've had the overload for a while now.

D drive is around half full, plenty of space for the recordings to go. My D drive is just a standard internal HDD I have to capture recordings before I transfer to my 12tb external disk.

As an FYI, the next OBS release should improve performance when recording to a slower drive.
