Hey everybody, I have recently finished a custom pc build which has been running smooth until bout a few weeks ago when I started to notice a drop in framerate while gaming and an increase in GPU temperature. Initially I assumed the problem was due to dust buildup over time so I immediately opened my case and proceeded to clean all the dust out, yet even after doing so I saw no difference. I am at a loss, I am experiencing stuttering while playing games like skyrim and counter strike global offensive and have gone from a steady 299 fps in counter strike to low 200s even dipping to mid 100s for a second. CPU temps have remained steady which leads me to think this is due to an issue with the gtx970. Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you for reading. smile.gif

What temperature on the graphics card? Is it throttling due to high temperature?

Check to see if the fans are actually spinning during use.

Atm it is running csgo at 55*c which isn't extremely hot but it was running at 40 previously. The fans apparently will not start until it hits 60 so I use msi afterburner to manually turn them on which usually brings the temp down to 35. I haven't witnessed any throttling of the card yet.

I wouldn't touch the fan settings as the default ones are fine. Yes, the fans start kicking in when you reach 60C.

Use msi afterburner and monitor the gpu clock speed and gpu usage. See if it drops when your fps suddenly dips for one second.
