Why are my FPS dropping in WOW
Help me with my intermittent frame-rate drop problem?
My components are:
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_gdr.130801-1533)
Language: English (Regional Setting: English)
System Manufacturer: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
System Model: GA-78LMT-USB3
BIOS: Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG
Processor: AMD FX(tm)-4100 Quad-Core Processor (4 CPUs), ~3.6GHz
Memory: 8192MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 8190MB RAM
Card name: AMD Radeon HD 6670
Your video card is absolutely bottle-necking your cpu, what that means is your cpu cant perform to its fullest extent because of the gpu holding it back. However, a 6670 should be able to run WoW especially with 8gb's of RAM. Download CoreTemp ( http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/ ) and post your cpu and gpu temperatures. If overheating is the case, you might just need a thorough cleaning, if its serious overheating you might only need a new cooler ($10-$30). Let me know how it goes. Remember to choose best answer! -Cael
