System specs:
CPU: AMD FX-4100 quad core (4046.61MHz)
GPU: AMD Radeon Black edition overclocked (1001MHz)
Motherboard: MSI 760GM-P23(FX) (MS-7641)
RAM: ddr3 4gb

Hello, i just have a problem wit my pc, when ever i play games i get good fps (30-60+) for 10+ seconds, then bad FPS (5-15) for 3 seconds( sometimes more), then it goes back to normal.

This happens on games like;
Team Fortress 2
ARMA 2 (DayZ Mod)
Skyrim
Borderlands 2
GTA IV
Saints Row: the third
Sleeping dogs
Garrys Mod

Can anyone explain why this is?

If more info is needed just ask and i will post

Many thanks, Alex Edit reason: Title glitched out

Have you any unessasary applications running in the background? What AV client do you have? uninstall or close any stuff you don't need. Also be sure you have latest drivers for your GPU.

have you disable your cool and quite option in bios..?
usually this is the main cause of that problem..

well, then what is your power supply?


also try to disable your indexing option..

Get the HWMonitor from cpuid and monitor the temps.

Sounds like either the CPU or GPU are underclocking themselves at times... likely due to heat. If either are maxing out at >85C - this is the issue.

206C on the CPU?!?

I read that as the software isn't getting an accurate reading on the CPU temp - intel has a 105C operating limit (I'd assume AMD has similar limit, I just don't know it offhand) AND as the likely culprit for your slowdows... your PC is underclocking the CPU in order to prevent it from igniting and burning down your house.

First try cleaning the CPU heatsink (if full of dust), if this doesn't help try removing and reapplying new thermal compound between the heatsink and CPU.

Ok thanks.

One little tip: Do not buy ready made PCs :(
