Hey guys I am new here and pls help me out with this issue...
My friend recently sold me his old but unused i5 2400 and I brought a Zebronics H61 mobo for it...I have a GTX 750ti with it,,I just want some basic games to run at 60fps in 1080p but The issue is...CPU is not constantly using the clock speed of 3.2ghz...it goes down to 1.5ghz and comes back to 3.2ghz randomly which is causing framedrops, shuttering and missing textures in GTA V...Temps are max 70c while during Prime95 and while it clocks to 1.5ghz, temps are down to 55c...But it comes back to 3.2ghz all of a sudden and I get 60fps again...Pls help me...I am attaching some screenshots to explain this in detail....Please forgive me if my English is bad...

In Prime95 does it drop in frequency? If not your issue is somewhere else, maybe HDD is too slow loading textures and cpu has nothing to do meanwhile and drops frequency.
Also Windows is installed on HDD or SSD? If it is HDD is the same HDD used for windows and games too?

Not CPU heatsink, VRM, it is very different, from what i see the VRM of your motherboard is very very weak.


This is VRM


This is your motherboard VRM




See that is almost nonexistent.

Also if you curious what is VRM here a little explanation: https://www.maketecheasier.com/what-is-vrm/
Bro...Its a new mobo...what could be the possible sollution ?? Actually, My CPU heatsink is very large and blocks all the tiny capacitors...never had this problem before when I used G41 with a C2Q..Pls help me...

Could it be a possible PSU problem or is it surely a VRM problem bro ?? Because my PSU says max usage shall not exceed by 200W continously..

Next time when you post in a forum for a solution to a problem post your entire build properly, yes 200W it is too low for your build, you need a 500-550W good quality unit (Seasonic focus, evga g2 or g3, Corsair RMx, RMi, HX, HXi, AX, AXi)

PSU Brand and model?
Borrowed a circle gaming 450watt power supply from a friend and tried stress testing...still the processor drops to 1.5ghz...I think its the VRM issue as you mentioned earlier bro...If thats the issue, I wont be able to change the mobo for a couple of years..I am on a very tight budget and I just brought this rig...but other users commented great gaming with this crap mobo...Thanks alot fpr helping me bro..
