I've run this rig for about 11 months now and have had no problems so far. However, I started up League of Legends the other day and was only getting about 30-40 fps with major drops every time a lot of particles were on screen. I've tried updating drivers, changing pcie slots. System restore etc. Fresh install of windows. etc. I found that its not only the case in League as well. I played overwatch today (normally run no problem) and it was only reaching about 50 fps (No vsync/ frame caps.) I know the game is playable at 50 fps. But with my specs I feel I should get highter than that.
I also ran Firewatch on ultra settings and was only getting about 20 or less fps.
I did try to look at resources used when playing and it looks like my CPU was at 100% and GPU was at about 40% (max) Utilization when playing overwatch.
Temperatures looked fine both for cpu and GPU (GPU didnt go over 70c)
Anyone have any other ideas etc? I'm at a loss
