Low FPS & GPU Usage With GTX 970

Hi, I have a 970 and am getting about 10-15 fps in rocket league and PUBG. This only happened after I had to do a fresh install of windows due to extreme stuttering throughout the whole OS.

Specs:
ASUS Strix GTX 970
Intel i7 4770K
MSI Gaming 5 Motherboard

I've tried quite a few things and I'm not too sure where to go next, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

    1. the monitor is hooked to the gpu?

    2. do you monitor cpu temps while you play?

    Hi, my CPU temperature is about 95 degrees C when idle. that can't be good? And I have 3 monitors all connected to my GPU, the main monitor i play on is connected via HDMI.

    Thanks for your response.
  3. CPU @ 95C idle, something is very wrong there. A CPU that hot is throttling from the get go. What CPU cooler are you using and how old is it?

    Hi, I have a Cooler Master Nepton 240M and I think is hitting about 3 years old. I just noticed that the light on the pump that goes onto the CPU no longer lights up as it used to when i bought it. When I crank my fan speed up there's no difference in CPU temp so I think the pump has broken so the water doesn't actually flow to carry the heat away.

    Do you think this is the most likely cause of my problems? Thanks
  5. @Cioby, watch your language.
  6. I censored myself. Whatever.

    That doesn't cut it around here, just don't do it in the first place.

    Could very well be your problem. Even with a run of the mill cooler your idle temps should only be a few degrees above room temperature. 95c is way off.

    If the light is supposed to indicate activity *and you verified all fan and pump connections are solid* then it probably failed. Looking on the bright side, exchanging the cooler means cleaning the CPU and a nice new layer of thermal paste, either pre-applied on the cooler or from your own application.

    EDIT: connections check

    Thanks for all your help, ordered a new CPU cooler already, hoping it fixes these ridiculous temps!

    BTW, if idle temps are that high, I would not try to use the system at all until the new cooler is in place.
