FPS drops in ice maps - TF2
In certain maps like Viaduct my FPS drops suffers constant, which does not happen when I play using Windows.
Not sure what the cause of the lag, but it only happens on ice maps.
I'm using the proprietary drivers from AMD.

Computer specification:

AMD Phenom II x4 965 3.4GHz
Ram Corsair 8GB (2x 4GB)
ATI Radeon 6670 Core Edition - 2GB

Sorry for my english.
English is not my native language.

Could be related to Cool and Quiet.

Well, I'm not the best person to talk about this but in my case it was related to the video drivers.
I had similar problems on Windows too when Cool 'n quiet was enabled or the performance mode was put to Balance on the nvidia control panel.

On Linux, a hand full of things can fix this, be it changing the cpu scaling, changing the video driver to be always at PERFORMANCE mode, disabling Cool and Quiet on the BIOS etc.

I looked for someone who has had the same problem I'm having with the drivers from AMD. But I had no success in finding anything similar here.
I did not want to go back to Windows just to play.
