Having some trouble with my new build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello!

 

A couple of months ago, I completed my first build. 

 

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!

Pay attention to your clock speed. If it drops down from where it's supposed to be set under a load like a stress test like aida64, yes you are thermal throttling.

Your issue could be a few things though. 

My guess is that it's because the monitor you're using doesn't have g-sync.

Try updating to the newest driver for your video card because Nvidia added freesync support but you have to have the newest update and it only works well with some monitors apparently so it's a toss.

If your monitor allows for it, after updating and restarting, follow the steps listed here to enable it. https://www.windowscentral.com/how-enable-freesync-display-nvidia-gpu
