hi there,

my friends has a dfi 875-p and a intel 640 all running stock speeds, home built, recentlly, the cpu is idling at 41%,his frame rates in source have dropped from 150+ to 60 dropping to the 20's, we thought maybe spyware so we reinstalled xp, still happened, we thought maybe a hacker, so we dis connected the internet cabel, still happened, yesterday, i remembered about i had the same problem, and turned out the cpu liked the thermal throttling high, so he turned it up, nothing, turned it off, and it was all fine, he gone away from it yesterday, turned it on 2day, its started doing it again, he checked the bios, thermal throttling is still turned off, have you got ay ideas? we really dont know now,

check to see what your page file is set at mabey [email protected]
control panel
performance settings
pagefile : ## MB

(your max should be about 1.5 times your physical ram)
(your initial should be about the same as your physical ram)

i dunno if that will helm but it should relieve some stress off your cpu if you have 1Gb or more of ram
