  1. Hello! A couple of months ago, I completed my first build. Intel - Core i5-8400 2.8 GHz 6-Core Processor Gigabyte - B360 AORUS Gaming 3 WIFI ATX LGA1151 Motherboard 16GB DDR4-2666 RAM Samsung - 860 Evo 250 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive Seagate - BarraCuda 1 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive Asus - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6 GB Dual Video Card Fractal Design - Meshify C Dark TG ATX Mid Tower Case EVGA - BQ 600 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply Asus - VG248QE 24.0" 1920x1080 144 Hz Monitor Logitech - G413 Carbon Wired Gaming Keyboard Logitech - G403 Prodigy Wired Optical Mouse When I am playing games (mostly Civilization 6 right now) I notice some problems during longer gaming sessions. Mostly I see a quite noticeable drop in framerate, to the point where it is making it difficult to continue playing. Usually, if I turn the machine off, give it a few seconds, then turn it back on, it is fine. I am using Hardware Monitor to check for temperatures, and they seem to be within tolerances, but my first impression is that I might be experiencing thermal throttling. I'm using the stock Intel fan, which I thought would be fine since I am not overclocking. Can anyone help me track down this issue? Thank you!
