How can I maintain good FPS while using default Power Saver plan

I recently bought a new CPU, and I wanted to keep it in good shape, ie keeping the temperature on it low, and thus have the fan for it be so noisy. Using the default power saver power plan in the control panel keeps the temperature below 20*C consistently while playing video games, but doing this also results in the frame rate being super inconsistent, I can get anywhere between 30 50fps but it's incredibly bouncy between those numbers. Is it at all possible to get 60 fps while still having a low temperature, with the power plan?

Can't see how the specs are a contributing factor for this but never the less here they are:

    The cpu will only start taking damage when it hits 75 c so no need to do this power saving stuff just let it go full power.

    I just get worried that it's a new CPU and Fan yet it still makes a fair amount of noise. Maybe I should just invest in a new cooling system, a quieter one :L... Do you have any suggestions on what I could do to reduce the noise? Power saving does this but maybe there is another way. .-.

    Are you using the stock cooler it came with?

    Yes I am, I've heard that if you don't overclock the CPU (Which I haven't) then they should be good, but otherwise you should get a better one
  5. Your CPU will long outlast its usefulness even if you just leave it alone. CPU lifespans are in decades. Your FX CPU is already 5 years old and starting to struggle in some things, so keeping it alive for decades longer is kindof pointless.

    If you want it quieter, adjust the fan speed profile in BIOS.

    The stock cooler is quite loud so I'd suggest getting a better one you can force it to stay at a lower rpm in the bios but getting a better cooler like the cryorg h7 or hyper 212 is the better option.
  7. ^ Both are streets ahead of the boxed cooler and quite cheap, a more than sound investment in any system.

    Okay, thanks, I'll probably do that with my next paycheck, one last question though, will adjust the fan rpm in the bios mess with the temperature? I've never done it before so I don't really know what I should be looking at to make sure I don't make my PC go pop.

    Its usually under temprature control and instead of auto you set it stuck at lets say 70%. However if you are getting a new one soon anywys don't bother messing with it and just let the cpu go full power.
