Why does CS GO freeze periodically even though my CPU temps are not very high

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys, plz I need ur help.

 

I play CS GO on my Dell G3 3579 with these specs:

i7 8750H 

GTX 1050 ti (max-Q)

8 gb of ram (ddr 4 / 2666mhz/ single channel)

I undervolted the cpu by 0.130v

and I set the turbo boost short power max to 20w (it was 78w) and the turbo boost power max to 20w (it was 45w)

 

while playing on the lowest video settings except fo multicolor rendering set to enabled, my fps sits around 160-180 fps and every 70 seconds my fps drops to 1-2 fps for 20 secs even though my temps are not that high and they are on average 88-86 before the fps drops. I included a photo that shows the temps and they seem fine before dropping when the fps drops.

it's like my cpu is thermal throttling but it shouldn't be because the temps reached 90 degrees only once and I don't think it's gpu related because the temps sits around 70 and CS GO is more of a cpu game. 

so plz can u help me and suggest solutions. I could enable laptop saving mode in CS GO but it will lock 48 fps and I think my config is capable of more. 

 

Thank You.

well getting over 80c your cpu starts thermalthrottling. it seems like it. it can be bauce of you ram since it seems like it is only running at single channel. 

get another 8gb of 2666mhz laptop ram, that could fix it

The thing is: this wasn't a problem before, the fps was stable

i think the second it reaches 90C it throttles hard, and that's what you're seeing here.

buy a cooling pad.

yes, for fortnite too. but i don't play it much

for cs try limiting the fps (via the console (fps_max xyz)) to 60 or 100 and see if the issue remains. if there aren't any more fps drops its probably due to temps. a solution for now could be to set your fps to 120 or something, until you get the cooling pad

I tried another thing:

cs go does not have a setting for fps cap

so I set one of 80 fps in the launch options of cs in steam and it seems to become stable for now

I will test it more before confirming that it solved the problem
