I get huge FPS drops I have a MSI twin frozr 2 GB GTX 770, 16 GB RAM DDR3 CL9, and AMD FX 8350 4.0 GhZ eightcore.
I get sudden drops for no apparent reason in all games, it drops from 60-100 FPS to 0-5 FPS for 20 seconds and goes back, it's not the temperature I tried fans 100% and it's not the drivers because I reinstalled them 4 times, this came with the PC it happen since I bought it, I need help

More about : huge fps drops

If its WatchDogs and/or BF4 then its a well known problem.

What max cpu and gpu temps are you getting?

Post your build.

It's not temps, I've tried setting fans at 100% and it still happens the GPU goes to 40-50 degrees and the CPU too (with 100% fans) and without 100% fans I get 60-70 GPU and 50-60 CPU, liquid refrigeration rocks :D  And it happens on battleffield 3, skyrim, planetside 2, watchdogs, and even in sniper elite v2, I'm pretty sure it's not the game's problem...

Oh, and BTW EVERYTHING that my PC has is this, I bought from here (It's a spanish web page but you can see the components and everything)

Can you download and run HWInfo - Sensors and post the readings for 12v, 5v and 3.3v just to check if your psu is working OK?

that's the full report

Must be an old motherboard - not much info

Re-seat the cpu cooler.

Raise the Sys Fan (vrm) speed

How much should I rise it? At how many RPM?

the motherboard might be throttling the voltage during the fps drops. its hard to tell without a graph but unless you have a beefy motherboard, the 83xx processors can throttle. the asrock only has a 4 + 1 powerphase, which isnt really good for such a power hungry processor

Ok, so I realised that I have not the latest BIOS avaliable, whoops, where can I download it? Asrock xtreme 4 AM3+

How? And at how many RPM do I set my CPU cooler?

it should be in bios somewhere, im not sure where. under cpu settings or fan control settings?

and just list everything in your build: cpu, cpu cooler if its not the one that came with the processor, motherboard, ram, storage devices, gpu, case, power supply. make sure you include the brand and some identifying stuff about it

i just found a section in the manufacturers website that has different bios versions:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/970%20Extreme4/?cat=Downlo...

make sure you read the "how to update" part.

choose the windows installer, the 3rd one from the top


It says windows 8, I'm using 7, should I still download it?

yea, i think the description tells the user what changed in the certain bios update. for example, the newest bios update took the water mark issue away (or maybe it was just saying it has the problem).

thats from 2013 though, so they arent manufacturing the board or making any more new bios changes anymore

How do I edit it? Hwinfo doesn't allow me to or at least I don't know how to...

With the motherboard bios - uefi.

Look in your motherboard manual.

Ok, I'll search, but how can it be a problem that the CPU reaches 50 degrees celsius? I think it won't work...

50c cpu temps at load? those are fine temps, but you can try and should try just in case.

i think the real problem here is that your motherboard cant give the processor enough power all the time, its a problem called voltage droop, or v-droop for short. what happens is during heavy load, the mobo is supplying a certain amount of voltage to the cpu. but it cant sustain that power output for a long time, because it has a 4+1 power phase and isnt made with as much quality as other motherboards. so the motherboard drops the voltage to a more manageable output for a short bit, then goes back up. however, dropping that voltage for the slit second drops the cpu core clock by alot, and in the middle of gaming will cause big fps drops and stutters

If your Vcore is raised it will raise your cpu temp.

Also if cpu coler fan is going slow.

Also if your cpu cooler is dirty or not seated on the cpu properly.

It ain't dirty I think, the computer has 2-3 weeks and it looks properly placed, (the case comes with a transparent part and I can see it) but, what's Vcore?

vcore is the voltage supplied to your cpu, rasing it can fix some stability issues but will raise the temperature of your cpu.

It is NOT the temperature, now what?

I didn't ask for the temp. I asked for Vcore.
