Question / Help Recording lag without encoder overload

I have a gtx 1070 and thought it would easily support recording gamplays with nvenc, but even with good game performance and no obs overload warnings, my recording has a lot of lag.
I am capturing gameplays on an external hard drive as recommended, I believe he is able to easily write the recording files since it is 3.0.
Thanks to those who help.

View -> Stats will provide extra info about performance.

You should also try running OBS as administrator to raise its GPU priority, which can affect NVENC encoding.
