Ever since i updated to the newest GeForce 314.22 diver I have been getting low fps. On Cod4 i had my fps locked at 250 but now I only get 60 fps. This happend in al my games (WoT , BF3 , War Thunder etc.) My temperatur was also lower then before, from 75°c to 45°c.
The only way to fix it is by reinstalling the driver every time i turn on my pc.
I have tried other drivers but the same thing keeps happening.
I hope some one knows a fix to this, thank you

system specs:
-CPU I7 2600k @3.4ghz with turbo mode on

-GPU msi hawk gtx 560ti twin frozer III

my gpu is overclocked to 1030 mhz but this can't be the problem because it
works fine after reinstalling the driver

-RAM Corsair vengeance 2x8 gb 1600 mhz

-PSU Corsair GS600 600w

-MOBO Asrock z77 extreme4

I think it might be the fact that they introduced adaptive vsync, which caps your framerate at the monitor refresh rate, unless it goes below that. (http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/04/16/nvidia_adapti...)
Why are you so bothered about 60fps? Your monitor wouldn't have been able to display anything faster, and your graphics card will now be running cooler and on less power for the same experience.

Thanks. I know 60fps isnt that bad but im used to playing with high fps ,but in games like BF3 it drops even lower then 60fps.

I wouldn't expect the 560ti to run bf3 at 60fps constantly - is it just now you've noticed a major difference in frame rate in other games, you look more carefully at the bf3 frame rate? I have the 560ti and it doesn't play many games at 60fps unless I compromise on the settings, and bf3 is very demanding.

i found a fix. I turnd off adaptive vsync and the problem was gone.
this also lowerd my temps from max 80°c to max 72°c.
And on BF3 everything maxed out on an emty operation Riverside server I get 40-50 fps.
thanks for your help.

Did you set adaptive vsync of in the global settings? Don't know if it would be different using the application specific settings. Other than that I can't think of anything sorry :/

I don't really understand what you mean. I turned off adaptive vsync in the 3d settings tab in the nvidia control panel.

Go to Nvidia control panel and check under the 3D settings tab. If nothing else just roll back to a older driver which is common these days.

No more ideas? It is getting worse . from 300 fps to 90 fps ,and the 90 fps feels like its 10 fps

I found my problem, which is similar. GET RID OF EXPERIENCE. It totally messed up my drivers. And set it to low performance settings. Re install drivers after that.

In your game, set everything to low, just to be certain. (I had this problem on QuakeLive and it still helped)
