post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello,
few weeks ago, I noticed that my pc have FPS drops, like from 120 to 14 etc. and I was wondering what woud be the problem, at the first I updated drivers, created OS optimizations and and even reinstalling OS didnt helped out. Any advice?

What games? By the way I see your CPU is set to clock down to 1.4ghz during low use, try disabling power saving features like core c6 state and c1e.

In BIOS/OS configuration everything is disabled on powersave. At the first, i thought the main issue is bottlenecking, but when I compared power of CPU and GPU all was ~ equal.

  • Crysis 3
  • League of Legends

Your CPU is still, downclocking unless that's an old reading, 1.4ghz is the standard underclock for c6 on 8320/8350's.

If you're getting that level of FPS drop in a game like league of legends though it implies something is wrong.

Try checking CPU/GPU usage with msi afterburner, use SeaTools to check your hard drive, I'm going to guess you already tested CPU/GPU stability.

I was just assuming the 1.4 reading was because he took the screen shot while not under load.

check if your clocks are fluctuating while ingame if temps aren't throttling you then see if your bios has an APM option in the power saving features, disable it I know some boards don't have it like the gigabyte ud3. I used to have fluctuating while under load and it wasn't throttling, APM was the cause, because it tries to save power when underload.
I'd get very annoying fps drops in video games as if it was throttling, disabled then no more hiccups.

I also know others have said that CnQ can cause throttling, but from what I've read, it will only throttle IF you hit your temp max which is 70c on core. Temps don't seem to be your issues though nor was it mine so I've kept it on.

Well you got some balls there. A FX-8320 on an ASRock 960GM/U3S3 FX, which is not a good idea. That AsRock is a unheatsinked 3+1 power phase. The mobo will throttle that 8320 no matter what you do. I would get a better mobo.

EDIT
The major problem is the mobo.

This x 10, the motherboard is only rated for 95 watt FX chips.
Your motherboard is going into survival mode.

agreed dixson, but he shouldn't have too many problems running it at stock, he just should never EVER OC.
Also Im not sure if the mobo is causing the frame drops, which from what it sounds came out of nowhere, unless something has gone bad but not completely kill the system.

Yes the problem is with mobo BIOS setings, reconfigured and the fps run smooth and stable, even catzilla score is now fine around 11k.
About mobo, I will use it for few months, then ill upgrade it to sabertooth or fatal1ty till then i will not oc, works pretty fine without it.

Thnx all for help! smile.gif
