So basically, a few days ago I had a stable 250 fps, now when i locked it on 250 its barely 170. So I have to lock it on 125.
Anyone knows why this would've happen? I tried yitch3 config, didnt make any difference, same with changing to a lower resolution/settings. Nothing seems to work. I reinstalled everything as well.
Thank you!

Maybe your graphic card or your CPU are overheated, and you need to clean them.

If not, you may have an additionnal application (maybe a virus) running that use your CPU. If so, I encourage you to format your PC, then reinstall.

Sorry if I can't help you much better.... and good luck.

Hi, sorry for late answer. No, its not solved yet. I reinstalled my whole computer and it was fine for a few days, but now its back. And even worser, now its around 100 fps instead. And its literally unplayable, since I have a 144hz monitor and ye, you cant do shit with 100 fps.

Nothing seems to work, it works perfectly fine on my older computer with waaay worser components.

U have spare parts to put in and try to find the problem out? For example, it could be a faulty GPU or CPU is just overheating a lot. Run CPU Z, check your temps, also MSi afterburner to check GPU's temps. If nothing comes out of the temps, try replacing each part and checking if the problem persists. If the problem still persists, try main components on a new mobo or simply checking thermal paste on ur cpu (if you game regularly, this should be replaced every 3 months). Also check your voltage settings on BIOS. GL

Altough i don't need a forum to back my info up, even the paste guides say u should do it every 6 month. I do it between 3 and 6. Always good temps on the cpu and it's nice and fresh

"Quality thermal interface material shouldn't dry out, but if you notice that your temperatures are rising it wouldn't be a bad idea to take apart and clean you system, including a thermal compound refresh"

legit never heard of something so stupid, 3 months? lmao my 2500k @4.5ghz ran cool with the same arctic silver thermal paste for 3 YEARS at low temps

you know the thermal paste doesnt just work perfect straight away? you actually have to give it time till it works at optimum performance...


" it will take a up to 200 hours and several thermal cycles to achieve maximum particle to particle thermal conduction and for the heatsink to CPU interface to reach maximum conductivity. (This period will be longer in a system without a fan on the heatsink or with a low speed fan on the heatsink.) On systems measuring actual internal core temperatures via the CPU's internal diode, the measured temperature will often drop 2C to 5C over this "break-in" period. This break-in will occur during the normal use of the computer as long as the computer is turned off from time to time and the interface is allowed to cool to room temperature. Once the break-in is complete, the computer can be left on if desired. "

stop spreading bullshit, you almost never have to replace your thermal paste unless you remove the heat sink or you fucked up your inital application of the paste, in most cases when you have high temps it will be more likely to be a dust build up or a blocked radiator, "good" paste can last for years.

if your thermal paste is dry after 3 months then id suggest buying real thermal paste.
