Could be (very high chance), but even if it isn't i'd change it....
Thermaltake is the most cut throat company when comes to profit/quality.
Also their customer support and warranty support is amazingly awful ...just never buy anything TT.

Nope if its PSU related... drivers can't solve that... simply put, your PSU might not be able to deliver as much power as the GPU needs, so it just clock's to lower speeds.

So do you think low fps cause power supply? Does it even run if the psu cant handle it? You know if you are sure the psu is causing it , i could buy one

The only way I to be sure is to check it physically, since I cant do that, how can I be sure?
As I said in the post above, the PSU is garbage anyway, even if the problem is not from him, you should change it.

Everyone should understand that, the parts inside computer doesn't just RUN or NOT.... they bleed out!
If you have crappy PSU (like yours), there is no steady delivery of proper voltage inside every part of you PC... which at first is not a problem since everything is running, but you have to understand:

  • Good PSU provides close to perfect voltages which leads to longer life to every component in your PC.
  • Good PSU has good protection systems in case the PSU itself fails or there is storm outside.
  • Good PSU will run quieter, longer, cooler.
  • Good PSU will use way much less electricity.
Summary: if you have 30-40$ PSU and 100$ PSU, the difference is 60-70$ but it will ALWAYS pay off greatly, and if it save you PC during Stormy weather it saves you couple the price you pay for it.

Its not the PSU problem..
Its Driver issue.

Use DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) and Install Old Nvidia 970 Driver.

Maybe your Computer have BitCoin Miner. Best is to Reformat it.

Try to Uninstall the Driver first.
Then Install old Driver https://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/114351/en-us

If it does not work..
  • Open a Game
  • Open Task Manager and Look at CPU Usage, GPU Usage. if it hitting 100% on both your PC contain bitcoin mining.
To fix it.
- Go Bios,
Enable Legacy Support on Boot.
Disable Secure Boot
Install a Fresh Windows 10.iso

It's most likely a driver. The PSU is garbage and shouldn't be paired with this GPU, but that's a separate problem and is very unlikely the cause of this problem, unless something indirect has happened such as the PSU damaging it.

It has something to do with Windows OS + Driver.
Because I had a similar problem on RX 580, but mine was the sound..I plug mine on another computer it work fine, only difference was windows 10 version. the other 1 was HTPC so windows update was disabled.. So i ended up reformatting my drive install new windows 10 and disabled that windows update and that annoying sounds crack went away..

I think you need to look for culprit. Task Manager and click Details Tab and sort them on CPU when you start to play again after you restart and find out what % CPU Usage those hogging your GPU.

or run (windows + r) and type taskschd.msc and click on Task Scheduler Library folder on left pane.
and look for any culprit there that start any application that start.
