FPS Drops after around 15 minutes of gaming (Laptop)

I've been playing CS:GO a large amount recently and each time I start the game with around 120+ FPS on the lowest settings, it then drops after 10-15 minutes down to 50-60 fps and after around 20-30 minutes it says at a constant 20-30 fps which is unplayable.

My specs are as follows:
8GB RAM
i5-3210M 2.50 GHz
NVIDIA GT 650M

  1. Why do you play on lowest settings? your specs are not bad,,and this might be a temperature problem,,download GPU-z to monitor your GPU temps while in-game,,,or download HWMonitor

    I play on the lowest settings because I play competitive and I want the best FPS possible to gain an advantage over the opposition, and I'll try them now, thank you! :)

    in GPU-z under sensor tab,,you can select "log to file" which will save your GPU temps while you are in-game,,you dont have to alt+tab anymore,,,and for your CPU,,run REAL TEMP s/w
  6. if you wanna see hardrive temps then use crystaldiskinfo

    Both the CPU and GPU are at around 86 celsius when the FPS drops

    Thats okay for the GPU,,,but your CPU is way too hot man!! Buy a cooling pad,,,this is totally temperature related

    So if I buy a laptop cooling stand that should fix the problem? Is there no software that can manage the CPU temp so it doesn't go high or is this not possible?
  10. But normally laptops do run hot,,,your CPU is not wayyyy too hot but certainly is not recommended
  11. yes,there are s/w for that,,just google a lil bit and laptop cooling pad may help you
