For the last few months or so i have had Fps drops in all games i play. i have had 3 different graphics cards and i experienced same FPS drops. Most games i play include dota2/diablo3/skyrim i seem to get a constant solid fps at 120 or 70 or 80 depending on what game and settings but nothing i seem to try has stopped these fps drops. In dota i can play for a few mins at 120 fps then my fps will divebomb to about 20-30 for around 10 seconds and then return to 120 fps. I have applied new paste and even fit a new fan but my temps seem to read find when these spikes happen and im out of ideas. i have changed power settings that other threads have suggested and reformatted and defrag countless times. this was taken from opening the game, playing for a few moments and experiencing a few fps drops then coming out of the game to take the screenshot.
