My last GTX 760 broke basically and since then I've had an upgraded GTX 760 (gigabyte) and I get fps lag in most games. Just running Cs:go I only get 30-40 fps. I used to get 200-300 before my other card went?

This card is supposed to be better or at least not worse. I've ran virus scans checked vsync not on etc. I've also had a new PSU in last week so it shouldn't be that either.

All drivers up to date, any ideas on what it could be?

Specs:
i7-2600k @3.8ghz
8GB RAM
Gigabyte GTX 760

Running at 1920x1080.


Thanks!

Also it might be worth mentioning I've tried changing the quality and can even then only get up to 70fps on CS:GO. Thanks

are your temps stable? what power supply did you recently install?

I installed an OCZ 750 watt psu. And I wouldn't say it's been bad browsing but it doesn't feel right if that makes sense things seem to take a little longer. Thanks

I did think my cpu might be choking it but with my previous graphics card supposedly the same spec doing far more fps. All the drivers are up to date and on some games such as Warz I'm getting points where I'm only getting 2-3 fps so something is obviously wrong. Thanks for any help.

CS go is an old game I think it's just not compatible, I will give you a simple experiment to try. Run newer game like bf4 or crysis, then see if you are getting low fps then it's your card, but if you have great fps 60-40 then it's is 100% cs go problem and you can't do anything or you could change you card If you want

try your old PSU again if you still have it and see if your fps go back to normal btw what brand psu did you buy? if it was a cheap one it quite possibly could be your new psu not supplying the video card enough power

Edit: just seen you mentioned ocz 750w and they are a decent psu so might not be that then just seems funny after changing your psu that you get the frame drops

I don't have the old psu any more as it was broken so I sent back and they replaced with a "better" brand in OCZ it was a budget psu before as it blew the night before a lan so was an emergency purchase. Is there any way to test if it is the PSU without having another PSU? Thanks

you could always try your psu in another computer and see if their performance drops from what they had

that ocz psu seems fine not to say that it cant be faulty either though

Problem is I don't have any friends locally with high end PC's, is there anything else that could cause this? The psu is only a week old so would hope that that wasn't the case especially since the last psu I had went after 2 months and this was a replacement.

Yes or at least I'm pretty sure lol, I'm not at the computer now as I'm at work but it came back from Novatech as I originally bought the card off them but I did check everything and it seemed fine as far as plugged in completely. I will check again when I get home but surely wouldn't that make the card not work all together rather than just have poor fps?

Thanks

the card will still work but because it hasnt got its full power supply it will severley drop itself which could explain why warz dropped to 1-3 fps. But you would think having it come back from a pc store they would know to connect both 8 pins lol

Haha yes one would hope, any other ideas of what it could be? I would like to think they also tested the PSU before they put it in for me but who knows! It's taken them long enough to sort it out anyway.

Damn! I will get in contact with them to see what they can do to test, I was hoping it would be something else as they take a min of 5 days to test and are getting increasingly infuriating to deal with. Thanks anyway

when you get home check to see if they connected your gpu with the proper 8 pin connectors that run straight from your psu to your video card and that they havent used the cheap 4 pin molex adapters and connected them that way

Yes they've used the 8 pin connectors as I doubled checked that all before I turned it on.

oh i see sorry i miss read the post my apologies. i guess the thing to do now is get it tested and see the results if the psu comes back fine next thing is quite possibly the video card is faulty

I think I will just get or at least try and get a refund from Novatech, over the past 2 months they've had it for 1 month of that time and still not sorted. I'd rather spend my money on a company that seemed to care if there equipment works, then again I might be wrong for thinking companies should put serious effort into fixing customers problems.

i mentioned earlier about checking your temps, the reason being is that alot of time heat is what makes a piece of hardware fail.. i also mentioned your cpu and asked how your browsing was because these two things can correlate with one another.. im not a professional by any means but have replaced many parts in a pc. recently i installed a new cpu i5 to an i7 and when i first booted computer it was soooo slow.. couldnt do anything, couldnt even get on chrome, and eventully computer would even cut itself off.. well i came to realize the problem was that i didnt have the fan mounted properly so my chip was overheating like a mother.. even if you havent replaced your cpu, if you get home and temps are sorta high for your chip, it might just be that its getting a little to hot under load and you need to apply more thermal paste. everything is working together and thats one thing that could POSSIBLY be causing your fps drops.. does your display ever loose signal randomly? or flicker to a black screen real fast? weird object around your screen borders?

No I havent yet had any flickering of the screen or cut out. I've got water cooling on my CPU which I will double check again that its all fitted properly.

im not to sure on the images you posted as i dont really understand alot of the different wattages but what i do know is that if your psu isnt supplying the required amps on the 12v rails you will have gpu problems

Yo just had a look at your voltage on your 760 and according to this chart you have not gone off the 2d/idle desktop mode voltage of 0.86 or whatever (my cards use 1.25)


I would use precisionx/afterburner to make sure the voltage is low running a game and if it is then try using sapphire trixx to boost it up.

You've got some abnormally high CPU core temps in one of those screenshots, above 90 degrees is when the CPU starts throttling

Reapply thermal paste and reduce your overclock if you have one already, otherwise getting a better CPU cooler could also be a nice idea

Yes it was indeed the cpu cooler that was the issue, the water cooling was no longer working so it is fixed.

If you're still getting low performance in games you could try uninstalling the Nvidia Drivers, boot into safe mode and use Driver Sweeper to clean it out and then do a "clean" installation of the latest driver (or whichever you fancy)

It's a very basic option but worth a try I guess :S

If that doesn't work then, I guess stress testing the PSU (by using a combination of furmark/kombustor+prime95 or something) would be a viable option as well to see if that's causing the problem

It's solved now it was the cpu over heating! I replaced it with a coolermaster 1 it goes up to around 60 on full so not too bad and idles around 35.
