I am facing occasional frame drops with GTX 680

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello guys
This problem started a while ago and wasn't present for about 6 months since I built the pc. games started to drop frames occasionally. I am mainly playing Battlefield 3. The frame rate drops to about 40 for 3-4 seconds then goes back to normal. I am running both the card and the cpu at stock clocks. I have tried other games just to make sure it's not from the game (NFS:MW and Crysis 2). I also monitored the card usage through GPU-Z, the clocks doesn't seem to drop by much less than 100 MHz. Games were running smoothly without frame drops before.

PC specs:
I5 3570k at stock speeds
Zalman CNPS 9900 Max
GTX 680 at stock speeds
Corsair Vengeance 16 GB 1600
Corsair Force GT 120GB
OCZ ZX850 W

Did you do any changes to your setup recently?

 

Which driver set are you on?

I have not changed anything. And I am on the latest driver. This occurred before this driver.

Go to nvidia control settings and set it to maximum performance for that game. That might fix it as it would run at max clock constantly and wouldn't drop.

I tried that and it's just the same. Should I try a fresh windows install?
