So I started to have this problem where every couple minutes my watts (power) would go down, my gpu usage would go down, my temps would go down, but my cpu usage would go up. When this happens I will get terrible fps but then it will fix. Does anyone know what could be causing this problem?

First of all - welcome to BC !


The immediate reaction to your description of your problem is your power supply is the root of the problem, it sounds like the output voltages are fluctuating which they are not supposed to do.


Difficult to be give more than the most generic answer without more details on your computer. Make and model at least, main specifications if you built it yourself.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !

If it's a process that's causing a bottleneck, the task manager could help find the culprit.  Close down all un-needed programs, it maybe caused by something running in the background (ie Skype).
