FPS Problems

Seems in the last period i started getting some WEIRD fps drops constantly, at that moment i was thinking that maybe it's a hdd issue since the hdd that i was running the game it had like 5 years of service and it started getting some nasty smart errors so i decided to make a small test.. i changed the drive on the PC and the game runned fine with 40-50fps constantly... now i changed the broken drive that i had and replaced it with something else and it runned fine for the first 5 minutes then suddenly it dropped to 20-25fps and it wont go up no matter what i do. And i`m starting to think that it might be something else.... like the CPU or the OS in general. So far i`m using a sensor monitoring software named aida64, maybe i`m reading the values wrong.. cos CPU is 54C but core#1 and core#2 when playing i get like 65-60C on both cores. That might be the problem for the sudden fps drop or it might be something else? :o

  1. In what game are you experiencing this sudden frame drop?
  2. Battlefield 3
  3. HDD cache issues? Not all HDD's are created equal in performance. Still, thats a big FPS drop to blame on the HDD...
  4. Well i cant figure out if the CPU is overheating or it might be the HDD/OS and beside i was using a 8MB cache HDD without any problem then all these problems started happening
  5. Did you do a complete reinstall of BF3, or just a mirror and repair? If you haven't tried a complete, fresh install of the game on the new HDD, it's worth a shot.
