Ok, so I've got a pretty old motherboard (gigabyte ga h55m s2) that about a month ago I upgraded the cpu from a i3 540 to a Xeon x3470 and got a new cooler for it. It works great but recently I began noticing that the fps was dropping in games and going back up. At first I thought that it was a problem with the gpu so I went into msi afterburner to check but everything seems to be working fine with the gpu then I noticed that the drop in cpu clock coincides exactly with when the fps started to drop. So I downloaded AIDA64 to stress test it and observed that it was not thermal throttling but saw that the temperature was going from about 70c under a full load and dropping to 45c over and over, which again happens to coincides exactly with when the cpu clocks down. I'm not that good with computers so I don't really know whats happening here.
