Critical 39.3% 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.
Critical 40.8% GPU Encoder Overload
The encoder is skipping frames because of GPU overload. Read about troubleshooting tips in our GPU Overload Guide.
Warning Old Version (26.0.2)
You are running an old version of OBS Studio (26.0.2). Please update to version 28.0.2 by going to Help -> Check for updates in OBS or by downloading the latest installer from the downloads page and running it.
Warning Mismatched Refresh Rates
The version of Windows you are running has a limitation which causes performance issues in hardware accelerated applications (such as games) if multiple monitors with different refresh rates are present. Your system's monitors have 2 different refresh rates, so you are affected by this limitation.

To fix this issue, we recommend updating to the Windows 10 May 2020 Update. Follow these instructions if you're not sure how to update.

MSI G27C4 (1): 165Hz
(1): 144Hz
Warning Windows 10 1909 (EOL)
You are running Windows 10 1909, which has not been supported by Microsoft since May 2021. 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: 48000 Hz
Headset Earphone (HyperX Cloud Flight S Chat): 16000 Hz
Microphone (HyperX Cloud Flight S Chat): 44100 Hz
Speakers (HyperX Cloud Flight S Game): 48000 Hz
Warning Non-Standard Framerate
Framerates other than 30fps or 60fps may lead to playback issues like stuttering or screen tearing. Stick to either of these for better compatibility with video players. You can change your OBS frame rate in Settings -> Video.
Warning Multiple Game Capture
Multiple Game Capture sources are usually not needed, and can sometimes interfere with each other. You can use the same Game Capture for all your games! If you change games often, try out the hotkey mode, which lets you press a key to select your active game. If you play games in fullscreen, use 'Capture any fullscreen application' mode.
