I'm having an odd stuttering problem with two select games, NBA 2K12 and FIFA 12. The games will run smooth from the beginning and about 50-60% through the game they'll stutter for about 3 minutes and go back to running smooth again. Nothing drastic but noticeable and annoying compared to the smooth gameplay before the stutter problem.
I've tried tweaking settings, gave d3doverrider a try, ran all graphical settings from the Nvidia control panel instead of the games themselves and it still happens. Gave MSI's turbo mode a try and still the same issues.
These games aren't even that demanding as I run games like Mass Effect 3, SWTOR in 1080p, maxed and no issues like this arise. I thought maybe my antivirus is causing some issue but I put it in silent mode and it still happens and I'm slowly running out of ideas.
Any tips or advice on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
