Critical 94.4% CPU Encoder Overload
The encoder is skipping frames because of CPU overload. Read about General Performance and Encoding Issues.
Critical Wrong Color Format
Color Formats other than NV12 and P010 are primarily intended for recording, and are not recommended when streaming. Streaming may incur increased CPU usage due to color format conversion. You can change your Color Format in Settings -> Advanced.
Warning Old Version (27.2.3)
You are running an old version of OBS Studio (27.2.3). Please update to version 29.1.3 by going to Help -> Check for updates in OBS or by downloading the latest installer from the downloads page and running it.
Warning Windows 10 21H2 (EOL)
You are running Windows 10 21H2, which has not been supported by Microsoft since June 2023. We recommend updating to the latest Windows release to ensure continued security, functionality, and compatibility.
Warning Mismatched Sample Rates
At least one of your audio devices has a sample rate that doesn't match the rest. This can result in audio drift over time or sound distortion. Check your audio devices in Windows settings (both Playback and Recording) and ensure the Default Format (under Advanced) is consistent. 48000 Hz is recommended.
OBS Sample Rate: 44100 Hz
Mic In (Elgato Wave:3): 48000 Hz
Speakers (Sound BlasterX AE-5 Plus): 48000 Hz
Info 1.6% Rendering Lag
Your GPU is maxed out and OBS can't render scenes fast enough. Running a game without vertical sync or a frame rate limiter will frequently cause performance issues with OBS because your GPU will be maxed out. OBS requires a little GPU to render your scene.

Enable Vsync or set a reasonable frame rate limit that your GPU can handle without hitting 100% usage.

If that's not enough you may also need to turn down some of the video quality options in the game. If you are experiencing issues in general while using OBS, your GPU may be overloaded for the settings you are trying to use.

Please check our guide for ideas why this may be happening, and steps you can take to correct it: GPU Overload Issues.
