Hey guys, ever since 6 month ago my PC started to have fps drops in every single game I play among them are: Minecraft, scrolls, battlefield 3, warthunder. I used to max them all especially BF3 and it ran on ultra without issues. I have no idea why that is happening and will gladly hear you guys out.

NOTE: Half a year ago I got a "fixed" GPU after sending it to ASUS but it kept making a rattling noise as fan seem to touch the metal below it. I fixed it by pulling the GPU a bit with a wire. Additionally there is a weird buzzing noise coming out of the pc.



CPU:Intel core i7 2600k

GPU: Asus gtx 570 direct CUII

RAM: 12GB  Patriot 1333EL series 

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3  


The whole system is almost 4 years old, never changed and always was cleaned off dust.

What part of the PC can cause the FPS drops in every game?


I tried: re-installing windows, changing gpu drivers, cleaning dust.



Thank you for help in advance, Alexander.

Check your current display settings and write them down if you need to.


I would say you probably have a driver issue.  Download Display driver uninstaller version download the newest nvidia driver for your system. But Don't install the nvidia driver yet.


Run the uninstaller and choose uninstall current and previous drivers and restart the computer.


After it boots back up you will have to change your display settings to match your current ones.(that you wrote down)


And then run the installer for newest nvidia drivers. 


Check and make sure you have downloaded the optional windows updates (specifically direct x.)


Restart after all the updates and installs


In the Nvidia game panel let it scan for new games and choose each one and let it scan for optimal settings.

And run your games through the nvidia game panel.


If the game your playing locks up or you have any graphic issues turn the slider settings down towards performance settings.


My son was having issues with his games locking up until I turned the performance down a bit for some of his games.


Let us know how it works out for you.

Looking at those specs your Video card would be the mayor bottleneck FPS wise. Depends on the game tough. Have you checked temperatures while playing? I usually use HWMonitor for checking temps.
