Hey! I found this site through google, hopefully someone here can help me fix my issue. Or tell me what to replace in my computer if something is broken.
I am not good at all with computers so if I missed any important info please let me know.
During the past month I have been experiencing a huge performance issue. Usually in the games I play I sit between 150-230 FPS. Often stable @ around 170.
Recently my FPS feels very random. Some days when I start my computer it starts off @ 200fps and then within 30 minutes it drops down to about 80 fps. Jumping between 40-130 fps. And usually becomes stable between 35-60 fps.. This includes screen tearing + very short screen freezes.
I have tried to clean my computer, removing all dust. Including removing the graphic card to clean it carefully. I did have quite a lot of dust however after removing it all I had no in game improvements. I ran different malware programs on my computer and it appears to be clean.
I have bought home thermal paste + Isopropanol 99, and the items I need in order to remove both CPU and GPU and add new thermal paste. However I feel like it might not be of any use. Since my temperatures seems more then fine based on what I understand is "fine". I will regardless try it and hope for a better outcome.
(CPU never goves above 40 degrees but GPU can sometimes peak on near 90, however I still have fps issues when the GPU is @ 60 degrees)
My computer is rather old now so maybe I need to replace something in the computer but I have no idea about what. I hopefully do not need to buy a completely new computer and that is why I made the thread here!
Processor: i7-4770K 3.5 GHz
Ram: 16 GB
Grafic card: Gtx780Ti
Here is a few video clips that might help someone assist me.. any details that I most likely missed just comment about it and I will add it asap.
All clips are from the same game, however I have fps drops in every game I play. The 2nd clip includes Open Hardware Monitor + Taskmanager - NOTE sometimes CPU goes 100% on taskmanager but it is super rare happens once or twice a day. Otherwise it is around 20%. GPU is usually running @ 30-70%.
(4min video just to show case how my fps usually goes, some days I can have 150+ fps for 2-3 hrs and other days I can sit on 50 fps from the moment I start my computer).
Skip to 2min 30 for FPS drops. "Go told my friends that using vsync / window mode / fulscreen etc could fix the issue so I tried it in that clip". However I have the FPS issue in every game.
(Short clip when I exp low but stable fps with Open hardware + Task Manager open) - this is not the worst state but still annoying, the worst is when I sit on stable 30 fps.
My GPU usually runs hotter this is just to show that I have fps issues even when it is no hot.
(This is how it looks when I use vsync on my 120 hz monitor, very unstable + a lot of screen tearing)
