System slow downs and CPU temps are inaccurate

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
My computer drops down to single digit FPS randomly sometimes hours into gaming sometimes minutes into gaming.

Recently got a new card an I know its not that card because I had the same thing before I changed my card, I hoped that the card would fix it, and while its not nearly as bad now it is still happening...

I use MSI afterburner to manage fan and temps on my GPU, all the temps stay sub 60c under full load.

I use HWinfo64 for my CPU temps... and within the last 24 hours the temps on my CPU have been extremely varied... ranging from 20c to 38c while Idling.

Could my cpu cooler be causing EXTREME system slow downs?

Should I replace my cpu and fan or just the fan?



If you can see in the image the temps jump by up instantly by 9c randomly and then drop back down to 20c... Which by the way is 50f and its 106f where I live so thats impossible...

The only possible problem could be the HDD or Ram. When thses slow downs happen does your GPU usage fluctuate and drop down?

I will run some tests and moniter the cpu usage and get back to you...

I seem to remember previously that the cpu didn't drop voltage or slow down for a second and remained exactly the same...

Then you could try disabling cool and quiet in the bios.

Try running p95 and check the load temps. Idle temps don't matter.

If your running on the stock cooler then you should. What exact mobo are you using? The vrms maybe getting too hot and causing your cpu to throttle.

First off, Its perfectly normal for a CPU to fluctuate a fair amount in temps even when idle.
Just like its normal to have one core running hotter than the others.

I would bet that whats happening is either an unstable overclock, or your CPU is actually for a variety of reasons.

The 8150 is hideously hot when its overclocked, so if you are running anything more than stock its a good idea to get something at least as good as a CoolerMaster Hyper 212+.

Lastly, ditch HWMonitor and use CoreTemp, RealTemp, or even Speccy, and compare the temps they report under idle to what you see in bios.
Its possible HWMon is just reporting wrong and you are overheating under load.
Especially considering I think AMD processors report Package temps rather than CPU temps.
