Ok so lately i have been using my computer and i play my games as always

but this weekend i have noticed that i have been getting a lot of frame drop in my games such as pay day 2.

Last weekend it was fine running every game at 60fps but this weekend it has all dropped down to about 30 fps and its annoying me and i really need help to fix it


Actions that i tried to fix it:

i have reinstalled latest

nivida graphics driver that worked for about 3 hours than it went from 60 to 30 again

i unistalled the graphics driver completely and reinstalled it but that didn't work

I have checked my temps with a temp monitor nothing was there nothing over heating 



my specs are:

CPU:  intel i5-4570 3.20ghz


GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660

motherboard: H81M-HD3

os; windows 7 64 bit Home premium

Hi there,


(Got same GPU) Please make sure you have no more programs running in the background, and watch your RAM usage, that is a good GPU and can handle

every single game I throw at it with ease (I'm talking real graphical games like Metro:LL) so it clearly isn't a GPU problem.


That's all I know, all the best :)

Have you ever cleaned your computer case of dust? Dust accumulation can destroy performance in games. The hardware will run at reduced performance to avoid getting hot. My experience with it is that the temperatures tend to stay the same, while your performance does drastically decrease over time.


Could it be that Payday 2 has some kind of memory leak? I doubt it, but as far as I know Payday 2 doesn't run on the Source Engine like Payday 1 did, so you can't be sure.
