Computer isnt running as fast as I thought.
Soo idk what to do. Im not very computer tech. Recently my computers been popping up that my CPU is running at 65degrees and it keeps alt tabbing me out of the game. My FPS is games are dropping and I don't know why. I used to get like 100FPS in league of legends and now I barely cap out at 60. I've seen videos of people running LoL with the same graphics card and near the same specs at 150-300FPS. So idk >_< I also keep getting random black screens for 1-2seconds then it comes back on. Plus when I tab into certain places like Google Chrome half the screen will be black and ill have to drag my mouse over it for it to appear again. Any help would be appretiated :3. I can post specs if needed.

When asking how fast (approximately) a PC should be, or if temperatures are a problem it will often help listing the parts in the PC.

If you're running an in-game overlay, try not.

De-dustify.

Use MSI Afterburner to set the fans to about 60%.

Disable AMD Cool & Quiet in BIOS.

A quick google says your CPU may getting on the warmer side.

http://www.buildcomputers.net/cpu-temperature.html

Not sure how accurate that is. A few other sites confirm close to those numbers.

As Uberfiend says check for dust build up etc, especially around the CPU fan/heatsink.

I can't enter the BIO's to turn off anything. When I press the BIOs button it either starts it up or asks if I want to enter advanced mode or safe mode or start normally.

You need to spam either the [DELETE] or the [F2] key as soon as the power is switched on. Sounds like you are missing it because after the next option is the bit you are seeing.

Alright I got it turned off. Hopefully it wont keep overheating. Idk why my FPS is so low now though.

What OS are u running?

And yes 65*C or higher is too hot for AMD CPUs, even the FX. I would invest in a better heatsink+fan. Even something cheaply priced like Hyper TX3 would make a big difference over the stock AMD HSF.

Windows 7. It never used to get this hot but ever since I started playing DayZ its been going crazy with everything.

This was already mentioned (by UberFiend) but I think it's worth asking again … When's the last time you cleaned out the dust? Changed the thermal paste on your CPU?

OK, then … that's rules out dust accumulation … :P

Two months is almost new. Any warranty left on it? Cuz something's wrong.

Is this a Pre-Build OEM system, or a Custom Build?
RoyayGaming Mar 8 @ 8:41am 
Its custom. And theres probably just the factory warrenty left.
Bad-Motha Mar 8 @ 8:44am 
Can u clarify the make, model# and revision# of the Motherboard and how old it is?

I would also run some apps like Malwarebytes Free Edition and Spybot S&D and do a full scan to check for malicious software that could be taxing the CPU and just lowering the overall system performance, etc.
