I guess its your PSU.
Coolermaster just don't make good PSUs at all.

thanx sumukh for ur reply..btw i fixed the fps drop issue by cleaning up the dust that had gathered on my cpu fan....do u think dust on cpu fan was the reason behind this because once i cleaned up the cpu..the gaming performance has returned to normal as before with fps arnd 40

Maybe your CPU collected alot of Dust from surrounding.
But beware of your PSU.

I don't know.
But it is sure that it will blow one day :lol: 

CM should leave the PSU Market.
Only CM GX series is a little reliable but its still waste :)
