So the problem is when I play for 2-4 hours my FPS drops. I thought it was a memory leak, but I fixed that and it improved a little bit. But I still have FPS drop. When I restart the FPS is back to normal. I have no idea to fix this. Pls help me. I found out that my gpu usage decreases a little.

Specs :
-gtx 1060 3gb
-I5 7400
- 2x8gb ddr4
-Idk what motherboard I have
-Idk what psu I have, but it powers 500W

Temps that high are pretty normal. Usage that high is normal.
Are you using any adapters to power your GPU, SATA to 6 pin or something?
I see that the power supply is a LiteOn. Was this a PC that was originally a prebuilt and you put a 1060 into?

I legit don’t know what’s my problems. I’ve been struggling with this problem for like 2 months already. I tried everything. I couldn’t find what’s my problem. I found out that I had multiple problems but they’re all fixed. But I still haven’t found the problem for my FPS drops. I will be so happy if you figure out what my problem is.

Oh it's fixed?
Ye I gave a DxDiag from my pc to someone and he said that I had to install the 442.74 Nvidia driver. So I did. But because of that I had problems with my temp and usage. Although the FPS was better, the temps were higher then they were. So I did multiple system recovery’s and it fixed finally after 5hours of struggling.
