  1. Everyone, thank you so much for the replies. I just got back from a trip (wouldn't call it a vacation). As soon as I got back I read through the replies. I tried most, but I got some new thermal paste as that is what seemed to be the problem. I haven't replaced it in 3 years. I just didn't think about it. Thank you so much for the replies, I can't believe I was this ignorant and the solution was this simple. I also cleaned my fans and heatsink which also helped a little. Also just another question, what is the ideal temp you would recommend for my CPU while in game? Again, thank you so much for the replies. Cheers to all!
  2. Thanks for the response, I have a couple questions as answers. I have 2 fans (3 with the cpu fan) inside my case, if the GPU is thermal throttling I can get a couple more. Just how would I know if my GPU is thermal throttling? My PSU is a Corsair CX750M. I would think I am getting enough voltage with my PSU. The only thing I've done to change my GPU settings is overclock it with MSI Afterburner. I followed this guide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1dGwFOdFLI I don't know if this affected the voltage, it might have. Is this information available in Afterburner, or how may I find it. Thanks for the response.
  3. here is a video example of my lag, heads up its bad quality (first time recording and using OBS). I just wanted to give everyone helping me a quick example of what is happening. Just keep an eye on the RivaTuner Stats and the FPS (top left and right). Look how inconsistent it is. My main point here is that I am still lagging with good specs.
  4. I would describe the lag is inconsistent, its not ping/internet related. My FPS dips heavily for no reason. Its random too. An example is when I'm in an area of the map that needs to render the least it would still drop. The GPU usage stays pretty low, I want to know if there is a way so my GPU would put more "power" into the game when I'm playing.
  5. LMAO, no... I'm from Boston and I'm in Boston. I can see why you would think that because of the name lmao. But I am using a hard drive. I will try putting a fan next to the hard drive. I checked for windows malware defender in the task manager, I didn't see it but I saw "Windows defender notification icon" and "Windows defender smartscreen". There is no windows update running in the background. I've been keeping an eye on MSI Afterburner as long as this problems persisted. The GPU usage stays always under 45% and the CPU can go high up to 80%. I've attached some screenshots. (First image is Afterburner while the game is running, second is when the game is not running) in game
  6. Before I get started on my problem, I am trying to get help with Fortnite mostly. All other games work fine. I am not sure what the problem is. I have tried changing multiple settings in Nvidia Control Panel and in windows it self for performance. Nothing has helped. All my game settings are low. I have reinstalled the game completely, I have reinstalled all Nvidia/GPU related drivers and softwares. Nothing has helped. I just recently got my GPU by the way (I was having the problem with my old GPU, GTX 950, so I figured why not upgrade) I upgraded thinking it would help. The problem still persists. I also have no idea if this is a bottleneck problem. I have tried overclocking my GPU. I am getting very frustrated over this problem, the game is unplayable for me. I would honestly appreciate it more than you would imagine if anyone could help me find a fix. PLEASE I'M DESPERATE! (Also thanks for your time and help in advance). Any info anyone needs, let me know I will provide. And again thank you. Specs: i7-4790k, EVGA Nvidia Geforce GTX 1660, 16 GB DDR3 RAM
