I just run mount and blade napoleonic wars and i was shocked this card cant hold stable 120 fps, it even drops to 80"s very often when a lot is going on. Its not acceptable for me in this game as i could run it previously maxed out on 10y old PC. I run it with msi afterburner and i saw that when the card drops below 100 it sometimes utilize 71% of power and when it has 150 fps it utilize 100% power, its retarded, how to switch it off to make it work at 100% all the time?
 
What is your full pc spec? What is the individual core usage (not total cpu usage) when these drops happen? Sounds typical of a cpu being maxed out or a game that can only use 1 or 2 cores is maxing out those cores while the others are doing nothing.

Mount and blade engine is old. As far as I can remember it uses only one core of your cpu. So if the battle is very big your cpu will bottleneck. You need cpu with very good single thread performance.

If you set unlimited bodies setting during sieges it will crash eventually.

You can try to disable power efficiency setting in nvidia settings. But I dont think the problem here is your gpu.
