Random 10-15 second FPS drop.

Go to solution Solved by Nena Trinity,

I think your problem is driver or malware related... :(

 

Edit:

*Did ya try to reset the CMOS?

Hello everyone. Let me start off by saying that I am new to the LinusTechTips forums, and I came here because I haven't been able to solve this issue anywhere else. I am also an active viewer of LinusTechTips on YouTube (Vessel trial expired).

 

The issue at hand is a random FPS drop in most games. My FPS will be fine and above 60, but suddenly at any given moment, even in a really basic scene, my FPS will drop down to about 20. The FPS drop lasts about 10-15 seconds. It can get really annoying especially when it messes me up in certain parts of a game.

 

Let me start off by saying that my temperatures are fine. My GPU temperatures go to 70 C max, and my CPU goes to 50-60 C max. This is all throughout the whole experience. Now, my GPU usage drops to 30%, in which it should usually be higher. Meanwhile, my CPU usage stays the same at around 60% (while playing GTA V).

 

I mine as well post my specs, so here they are:

 

GPU: ASUS Strix GTX 970 OC.

CPU: AMD FX-8320 @ 4.2GHz.

CPU Cooler: Zalman CNPS 10x Performa.

Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0.

RAM: 12GB DDR3 @ 1333 MHz.

PSU: Corsair RM750.

As for my Operating System, I've gone from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 thinking it would make a difference, and it didn't.

 

When I went to other places (such as reddit), some people said that my CPU could be a bottleneck. However, I would highly doubt it since the frame drops are really random. Most of the people that said that might have been a bit biased torwards Intel? (I have nothing against them).

 

With that being said, here's what I have tried (which didn't work):

  1. Turning off power options in my BIOS, Windows, and even nvidia control panel.

  2. Installing the newest drivers (even with DDU).

  3. Uninstalling nvidia audio drivers.

  4. Closing the nvidia streamer service.

  5. Reseating my GPU and RAM.

 

Moving on, there are some scenarios where I don't have this issue:

  • Any game in the Dolphin Emulator (I don't use any other emulators).
  • Resource-light games such as 2D games.
  • CS:GO or any other game based off the Source Engine.
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
  • The Witcher 3.

I've had this issue for about 9 months now. I built this computer about 10 months ago (February 2015). There was indeed a time period where I did not have this issue, but I am still very unclear about it. Any advice is appreciated.

i have the same damn problem

every game works fine and smooth for a min or 2

then that lag or slowdown appears that lasts for 5secs

 

these are mine conclusions which i tried ofc: 

 

-ur cpu is causing bottleneck or is bottlenecking ur gpu

-try new thermal paste

-get a better cooler

Ah yes, it's nice to see that someone else also has this problem. One thing worth mentioning was that I somehow got thermal paste on the pins of my CPU. I tried my best getting it off, and there was only a little bit in between the base of two pins. This happened when I first built my computer. I don't think that might be the problem alone as I haven't had the issue for at least a month.
May I ask, what specs do you have? Wondering if it's a problem with my CPU or GPU.

Dat AMD cpu iz yer problem

 

 

but seriously check what background apps are running.

 

Do a clean windows install and if this still happens, it's your hardware.

There's not really anything resource intensive running in the background. And I've already done a clean Windows install, didn't help.

Observe it for 30 minuets. Perhaps something is spiking occasionally, like a virus protection program scanning for changes.

Hmm you could disable Core Parking and see if that helps.

Also try running the game in high process priority.

I don't use virus protection software, just common sense.

 

I think your problem is driver or malware related... :(

*Did ya try to reset the CMOS?


There seems to be nothing taking up any GPU or CPU usage besides the game I'm playing. I've monitored my CPU and GPU stats while it occurs. Anyways, I haven't tried resetting my CMOS, how should I do it? Does that reset my CPU overclock?

I'm on Windows 10 which automatically disables Core Parking if I'm correct. I guess I could try setting the game to high process priority, but the games that don't have the FPS drop don't have this, besides CS:GO.

Well I have DDR3 so it might not be much of a problem. Also I do remember watching an LTT video where they test to see if ram changes the performance of your system. It doesn't. But I guess I could try overclocking my ram if there's nothing left to do.

Reset CMOS will reset ALL BIOS settings... :)

Yep, just did it. I wrote down my CPU overclock. I booted back up and re-entered my time settings in Windows. Now I have to test to see if that solved my issue.

CMOS reset solves many issues! :D

You are correct! I just played almost two hours of Dying Light and I didn't get the FPS drop at all! I wonder what BIOS option caused it.

 

Thanks everyone for replying. I think I already like the Linus Tech Tips forums. Happy new years!
