Hey guys, I am stuck in a little bit of problem, hope I can get some help here =P
So about 2.5 months ago I purchased a new pc which had the same problem as I will mention.
When playing games, by games I mean games like CS:GO, BF:BC2, TF2 and even old games: Populous the beginning & Red Alert 2, I get sudden fps drops, also my router gets f***ed up when this new PC is connected to it, the internet randomly disconnects for the entire house, but with my PC offline it doesn't happen.
So I complained to the store and after some discussion they decided to replace my GTX card with a better one and also asked to send them my PC for them to check, after a week they said the results didn't show any errors, so I got my PC back and the cpu cooler was somehow broken, nevertheless they replaced the whole computer as they didn't want the motherboard for example to have cracks in it.
My newer PC arrived last Thursday and unfortunately it still has the same problem, still the same fps drops and the internet disconnects.
I called them and they said that they checked my newer PC for 2 straights days, played games on it, tried everything and there were no FPS drops at all, nothing.
They said that I might have installed something that causes my FPS to drop and about the internet they said it's a problem with the router although I replaced it while my PC was replaced.
They also said that my screen might input too much power into the PC or something but I call bullbleep on this one because I tried another different screen.
By FPS drops I mean that I play on 200+ fps and the computer freezes for 1-5 seconds and then resumes like nothing happened at all, maybe I should have named it 'game freezes', I don't know.
It usually happens on CS:GO when I shoot someone, round ends\starts, I defuse the bomb, but not always.
and as for RTS games, it just randomly happens.
They said non of this happened at their store.
I had a 8 year old PC before that never had those kinds of problems, ever.
Everything about the new pc:
- Intel core i5 4570 / 1150 Tray
- Arctic Freezer 7 pro rev 2
- Gigabyte GA-H81M-D2V retail
- NZXT Phantom 410 black
- FSP Raider 650W A.PFC 80+ silver
- DDR 3 8G/1600 Hynix
- MSI GTX 770 2GB which was replaced with Gigabyte GTX770 GV-N770OC-2GD
- Samsung SSD 120 GB SATA3
- DVDRW LG GH2-NS70
- WD 2TB SATA3 64MB
- SyncMaster 2053bw (1680x1050) (I own this screen for about 3-4 years)
P.S Forgot to mention that I run windows 7 64bit.
And that I called the ISP provider (while my PC is gone and present, before the newer pc) and the technicians who came (both at different times) didn't notice any problems, they said that a PC might have a corrupt net connection and it makes the router crash and restart, from where I got my PC they claimed they didn't experience such a problem.
I hope I'll get some help here, thanks!!
