Low fps: unknown reason

So as the title reads my pc has been suffering from low fps recently and I don't know why.

My specs are:

i5 8600k cooled by a kraken x62

gtx 1080

16gb ddr4 3000mhz

650w

 

I mostly play rainbow six siege and I used to have a stable 180-200 fps and now all of a sudden my fps has deterioted to 90-100 and I haven't changed any settings regarding clock speed or ratios on my cpu. What's even stranger is that my gpu is running at 100% and my cpu 60% under load. I highly doubt that there's a bottleneck either.

How could this be? If any more information is required I'll keep in touch.

 

thanks in advance

I built it this summer so not sure if it needs cleaning, however my 1tb hard drive that my games are on is almost full. could it be that? The temp is on average 55 on all cores

I don't think it's that. Check and see what's running at startup.

It's definately not that. I only have 5 things activated on startup. What's strange is that when I'm multitasking (gaming and working) my fps stays the same.

That's interesting. I don't know what it is then. Sorry!

Hmm, did you try running antivirus software?

it could be the HDD.  have you defragged it recently?  HDDS do need to have that done occasionally, its toxic for SSDs.  Windows normally schedules these things at times when you are not using your PC.  But if you shut it down regularly it may be unable.

I just ran a quick check with windows defender and it gave no results. Does defragging mean going into the command prompt sfc/scannow? I do recall doing that recetly but I could try again. The only change my pc has gone through is the quick add-up of video files on my hdd. 'vs been recording my gameplay and stored it on my hdd. Am I correct about the defrag and should I run one?

 

Thanks for the quick replies!

You can defrag your hard drive by opening This PC right click on your hard drive click properties. Go to Tools and click optimize. Then a window will open in that window again click optimize.

Thanks a lot! Does this take time? I'll try that before going to bed in that case and inform you tomorrow what the result is. Thanks a lot for the advice

It can sometimes take some time. You should probably leave it overnight,

it cannot be a defrag issue. If it was a defrag issue, then loading would just take more. I think you have miner software installed on your computer. you should install kaspersky free anti virus.

It could be possible but if you had miner software every game would be slower. The easiest way to check if you have mining software on your pc just go to task manager and look if there is anything that's using up a lot of your CPU.

I defragged my harddrive and it said "0% defragmented" or something. Unfortunately though I didn't have time to run any FPS tests today :(, but I'll keep my hopes up. I'll also check for mining software though I doubt there is any.

 

Sorry for late reply
