Framerate drop off in Games

Hey guys I just built a new computer *specs below* and been having issues with framerate drop off in WoW, I usually run in high settings and originally was getting 90-100 fps, now I am getting maybe 40-50 and my video card fan scales up to 75-80 percent while I am playing. I have flashed bios to newest version from Asus, got the newest Catalyst drivers and just can't think of anything else to do to fix this issue...The only thing I think of off the top of my head was possibly with the lack of clearance from the video card to my psu in the case I have.... any ideas or thoughts on the matter would be appreciated thanks.

  1. You mention getting higher fps previously. Was this on this same system or a different one, i.e. prior to building the new one?
