don't you have any fps drops within fraps while recording ?
Because i had some issues with fraps, not even mentioning the massive uncompressed files...
While i was recording my gameplay with fraps, my fps rate sometimes droped from 60 to like 30 and sometimes even worse to like 15 fps...
I just couldn't record constant 60 fps with fraps, even tho my pc is a beast.
I couldn't figure it out so i deleted fraps and i'm using now OBS tho.

So as you can imagine there is no way that my pc couldn't handle it. I have no idea why there were any fps drops within the recording at all...
Well either way, it is what it is.
