Some games take over 10mins to start or wont start at all

hey long time since i been here (for some reason i cant log into my old account icebear/lusafis wish i could find a way to get back on !) anyway my problem i am having is a weird one and here comes the wall of text


So some games like Monster hunter world take over 15mins to startup (i counted) and a few other games take about 5 mins or wont even boot at all (but other games work just fine) so after a few tries i i found that by changing the timings of my RAM or just moving them to different slots from each other will fix the issue until i restart my pc again. i have tried default ram settings and it will work fine until i reboot. Overclocking is the same way as well, so i reinstalled windows and also tried different hard drives (uninstalling and reinstalling said games and moving to different hard drives and still no go. Now i went and bought a brand new set of RAM and it STILL does the same thing.


i also noticed that if steam does not auto boot and when i try to click it and does not load it will take 5 mins to finally start and than run really slow and even crash and this is when i know i need to reboot and mess with the timings again for my ram ( i have tried reinstalled steam and also to different hard drive and also with the clean install of windows)

My specs are


Ryzen 1700x


MSI x370 gaming pro carbon


32GB of Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4 3000mhz (my new set is Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 3000mhz)


Evga 1080Ti 


Windows is installed on its own SSD and i have 2 raid 0 spin drives for games and a samsung evo 960 nvme ssd for my main games i play.

So I just formatted all my hard drives and started from scratch again so reinstalled windows and also redownload steam and a few games (also downloaded uplay and assassins creed odyssey) and so far NO steam games will work now, they crash right when the splash screen starts or just sit with a black window (no error codes) and steam will freeze and will close and wont start back up until I reboot computer. Now the uplay store works just fine and I booted assassins creedy odyssey and that booted great as well (it was fine before all this as well).

I'm at a loss at this point since this is fresh new install and new install of steam and games with new ram (nothing is overclocked this is default settings).


I plan on buying a new mobo today to test that out. But it's weird since it's only steam related stuff that is not working.
