Lets say i play a game 10 minutes long, (Bad Company 2, Dead Space 2...) i have like 60 - 80 fps (Gtx 260) settings medium - high.
After this, i get below 10 fps, and it will continue like that, until i restart the game, after i restart it and launch the game right away, it's normal again for the next 10 minutes.
My Card gets maximum to 68-70 °C.
It's really annoying to play like that, if anyone has a solution, i'll really appreciate it.
Intel Quad Core Q9400 @ 2.79 Ghz
Win7 ultimate x64
4 GB 1066 Mhz DDR3
2x 2 TB HDD - Western Digital
GTX 260 Stock Clocks, yes i even overclocked it for 15 minutes to test if it helps, but no results.
well it was over time i think, it was like getting worse and worse,
i have a 850 W PSU
i play on 1680 x 1050 i tried 1024 x 768 but there its even worse what the..
could it be that nvidia has some bugs in their drivers with memory in the graphics cards ?
maybe i found the problem i don't know. but i didn't mention, i had some problems some a while ago, my bios and the sensors of my cpu being weired, they show for example 75 °C on idle and over 120 °C on load, but yeah i even asked some guys where i bought my pc from, they checked it with some hardware monitor laser directly into the chip, it showed there 55 °C, but then again, because the sensors are so inaccurate, bios thinks it's heating up, and its throttling it down ? and thats why i get performance issues?
its your temps. How much thermal did you apply? Check if the heatsink ain't loose. Did you OC it?
I did not OC it. it runs @ Stock speeds.
i checked and i can guarantee everything is ok in the case.
when i touch the heatsinks inside, it just feels warm but not overheating.
i have this pc since 2 years, and all the time these temperatures, don't you think it would say byebye with these temperatures for like a few months ..?
i think my temperatures are like 102 °C / 2 = 51 °C.
the cpu never applys #PROCHOT to shut itself down.
for example, i started my pc today, it was shutdown over night, and went directly into bios, and it said to me 90 °C.
maybe it shows me the double, of the actual temps?
and my fan speed is 1935 RPM.. speedfan doesen't work for me unfortunately, i would like to get it to 3000 rpm, noise is no problem for me, if anyone knows a good software to manage cpu fan speed i would appreciate it
hey again, thanks for all your answers,
but it isn't really the fan or heatsinks they're set i chcked them 3 times already.
but what i did now, i set the cpu that it can't go lower than 2,33 Ghz when it needs to throttle, it works i don't get any performance issues, and tested for 30 minutes, but im afraid the processor maybe needs the throttling, and my pc will just shut down, and won't boot or something?
1. I had so much dust on my fan, that gets all the new air in the case, i can't even explain how much there was..
I cleaned my Cpu Fan with really high compressed air.
and when i turned it on, on 100 % load on 1 minute, i had over 102 °C (when the problem was _not_ solved yet.)
now i have on 100 % load, after 30 minutes with prime95 ~ 57 °C
Cheers hope it helps you out too, people that have these problems
