my spec is:
CPU: intel core 2 quad Q8400
mobo: asus p5g41t-m le
ram: 8gb ddr3 1066 Mhz kingston
Psu: Seventeam ST-420BKV 420 W
HDD: maxtor 6V160E0 160 gb sata\300
VGA: zotac ge force 550ti AMP with the latest release of the drivers
OS: win 7 64
so, in normal condition my sistem work great, i play to all new games with no problems, but since one month randomly when i start a game i have framerate below 15 fps
i have checked if there are active process on my sistem when i try to play, if HDD is loading or writing something else, but nothing.
my sistem temperature is:
35\40° cpu (idle) 45\50°(play)
35° vga (IDLE) 75\80°(PLAY)
45\46° HARD DISK
here in italy we have around 35° of ambiental temperature now
there are 2 strage thing:
when i have this problem, the VGA temperature is low, normally when i star a game, the vga go arond 70°C in one minute, but in this case the temperature remain around 35\40° and i dont sense the classic buzzing of the capacitor coming from ta VGA.
if simply reboot my sistem, the problem is not solved, but if i shut down it and i restart my computer after 1 minute, all start to run fine.
sorry for the bad english, and i really hope to have some tip or solution to this annoying problem.
My psu voltages are fine, around 12.9v on +12V and 4.9V on +5V
