FPS in Borderlands 2 scrolling from 32 to 55 every few seconds.

It will be at 55... then in a second scroll through to 32, then back up to 55, and so on. I never had problems with this game, and typically had quite high FPS (but dropped a bit during combat).
My computer:

Intel i5 3570K
Biostar TZ77XE3 Motherboard
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti FTW Signature2 2GB GPU
Samsung Green 8GB RAM
Rosewill Hive 550W PSU

Thank you.

  1. Take off VSink.
  2. Couple of things to try:
    -Disable in-game vsync, and enable adaptive vsync in your nvidia global settings.
    -turn physx down or off and see if it helps.

    I'll check now.
  4. Alright, I changed VSync and all, and it does the same scrolling thing except it goes up to 92 or high and does it even during combat.
  5. Try turning the video setings down as far as they go. that could narrow it down to the GPU or CPU

    I turned them all down, and it started at about 120... then scrolled to 80, then back up, and eventually started going from 80-40, and combat was pretty choppy. Even turning quickly made it drop to 40-30 FPS.

    Watch your CPU usage as you play. if its maxing itself out then its a CPU issue not a GPU issue. im pritty sure its CPU, though.

    What program would you suggest for CPU OSD? I tried getting HW to work and I couldn't.
  9. If it's something as simple as CPU usage, you can use the task manager.
  10. Alright, so my CPU usage was usually around 60-70% the whole time, but my GPU would go from 60% to 10% and it would fluctuate up and down. It seemed by be in sync with he framerate shifting. Anyone know what this means?
  11. Did you check your power saving options?
    if nothing else call EVGA
