Hey there, it looks like your post could use more information-- for example, what games? What monitoring software are you using? What else are you doing while playing games? Good luck.

are you overclocking?

Whether you are or not, what kind of temperatures are you seeing?  Do you have enough airflow in your case? I see many folks not getting enough airflow when they build a computer..

Honestly I would ditch the stock cooler, they actually arent that great..maybe a Cryorig h7 or even a hyper212evo..

i get like 55 degrees overlocked to 3.75 im not seeing the 100% as much now it just feels like the performance gets worse when i overclock compared to stock 1.32v on the ryzen overclock app itself i have lots of air flow i always keep the side panel off  i use a corsair h60 liquid cooler

Just from what you've posted your memory is not the best.. I think you need 3200mhz memory or faster..I think you would see a dramatic improvement..  I run a 1080 also, but I'm also running a 1700 overclocked to 3.9ghz, using 3200mhz gskill memory.. I havent ran bf1, though I have ran star wars battlefront and I think they are relatively the same and mine does exceptionally well.

I think it might be your memory causing it..  How hot is your gpu getting?

But what did the memory run at?  You stated previously it was 2133mhz.. Did your friends memory post at 4000mhz or was it at 2133 also?   What Trident z kit is he using because if it posts at 4000mhz I'm going to buy the same kit myself..

I dont know that the memory frequency would resolve your problem, but I do know the faster memory makes a dramatic difference in performance.
