Ryzen 7 2700X lag spikes in Battlefield 4- How to fix??

My old rig was a i7-860.  I had updated the graphics card to a Nvidia GTX 1070Ti.   The computer played BF4 as it did before except for higher frame rates.  No lag spikes.  I decided to update the rest of my system.  Here are the specs

CPU- Ryzen 7 2700X

MD - MSI X370 Gaming Plus

Memory - 16GB 3000MHz DDR4

Graphics card - Nvidia GTX 1070Ti  (same as before)

Since the upgrade I get tremendous lag spikes while playing Battlefield 4.  While playing I am monitoring FPS.  I generally run about 200 FPS in Ultra graphics mode, but I will get random lag spikes and the frame rate will drop as low as 20 FPS.  Not drop 20FPS.  I mean dropping from 200FPS to 20 FPS.

Other than that the computer runs perfectly.

Can someone help me figure out what is going wrong?
