Hey peeps,

So i have searched here and about everywhere else as to what might be causing this issue. I originally thought the issue was related to an outdated GPU but now that ive upgraded to a 1060 i am still having the same issues. The issues are as thus:

While playing any game, the frames will randomly drop, and then shoot back up again. Ill be playing fine at 120 frames, then suddenly as i load in a new area, or look at the wrong area, i suddenly get a frame drop which in the task manager looks like:

CPU: 30% MEMORY 50% DISK 2% NETWORK ~% GPU: 85% then drops to 0% then 30% then back to normal.

Is this a use of a HDD instead of an SSD, is it my CPU? Ram?

Specs:

evga 1060 6gb
amd 8350
16gb ddr3 ram
2 x 1tb hdd
asrock 970 extreme4

Please and thanks for the help, ive researched everywhere and cant get a straight answer.

It's not the cpu overheating (though check that too) it's the power delivery system for the cpu which was never intended to run a factory overclocked 8 core processor as it was designed before such a think existed

Alright so i know this will make me sound like a complete noob. But how does one, go ahead to uhh, undervolte, their processor without blowing up their pc?

Would purchasing a newer mobo for this cpu fix the issue too?
