New gpu lag spikes to 0 fps

Hello I recently got mynew gpu and iv been playing games and watching youtube.
Every so often i get lag spikes to 0 fps from 90 fps. I realy bugs my because my video freezes even in youtube.
Specs: Intel I5 2310 2.9 ghz
Geforce GTX 760 2gb
8gb Ram
Windows 7

Ps: my cpu is running hot (77degrees Celcius, 170.6 degrees Fahrenheit) I am getting a new fan and put new thermal paste but that doesnt seem to help much. Is my fps like this because of cpu overheating?

great regards Jochem.

  1. what kind of GPU did you replace?
  2. Best answer
    its probably the CPU overheating and throttling down, bringing the GPU performance with it (for gaming that is), get the temps down and see if the problem persists. could also be updates needed or a bad driver.
