  1. Lately, when I've been playing games, I've noticed extreme framerate drops every couple of seconds from my usual 150 FPS to 0-20 FPS. No high CPU, RAM, or Disk usage, but I noticed this in my task manager.[​IMG]

    Not likely to be HDD - scale is to 100KB - HDD capability would scale to 100MB.

    What did you add to software just before problem started?

    Which games have problem? Is that all games?

    Get a utility which records history on temps and voltages and let that run in background while you play some 'problem' games... what are the ranges for these?

    I would suspect the GPU first - last cleaned? replaced thermal paste?

    CPU?...check and clean heatsink and all system fans... good videos on this on YouTube
