two days ago i replaced my old athlon 64 x2 4200+ with a 6000+ @ 3.1Ghz. From that point on my games are experiencing laging periods each 10 seconds or so, with fps droping down to 3-5. And im not talking about some graphic heavy games, im talking about league of legends, which was running prefectly great with my old 4200+. Could anyone tell me what the problem might be? HWmonitor is telling me the core temps were hitting 63c while i was playing and they run at 40-44c while idle. Is this too much?
This happened to me when i upgraded my pc. I had the exact same problem. The fix i found was the OS. I was using Windows xp and apparently my new cpu (Athlon ii x3 450) wasnt running too well with it. I upgraded my OS to Windows 7 and games then ran great. You can try a newer os to see if that helps. I also notice the temps on your processor are a little high. High temps could also possibly be the problem. so, try leaving the case open or do anything to help the airflow in your computer, maybe even getting a new heatsink or case. Hope this helps
Well, I,m currently running Windows 7, and i don't suppose upgrading to Windows 8 would help . My case is opened, and i don't actually have a good heatsink on it, some asus cheap cooler atm. But my question is could these temeratures be responsible for such hard lags for a game simple as LoL? I mean i know temps around 65c aren't that great, but still... i even tried to reduce ingame graphics to low, and it still happens.
Fps drops down to 3-5 and it stays like this for about 10 seconds, then it gets back to 45-50 again for 10 seconds and the cycle repeats. I played daksiders 2, same scenario.
Could formatting and reinstalling windows help solve this problem? Or is it really about temperatures?
In case this helps, i run xfx hd radeon 5670 1gb ddr3 ram passive cooling, asus M3N78-EH mobo, 4 gb of ram. But like I said, I had all of this with my old 4200+ and never had any problems, i played Skyrim on very high settings with this with a resolution of 1920x1080.
Is it possible that the OS has problems with the new cpu dropping in on it so i have to re-write it ?
Temps are way high for that cpu , what cooler you using ? Maybe clean off the old paste and try doing it over ?
The stock cooler is not great to start with but your temps are high even for a stock cooler , should be 28-35 idle and below 60 stressed ,though mine ran in the 60's when all cores were stressed @100% running WCG B O I N C , had to turn it down to 70% on the cores with the stock cooler .
Try changing the paste , see if it helps
