Any ideas My pre-built PC specs are below:

Processor (CPU) AMD FX-8350 Eight Core CPU (4.00-4.20GHz/8MB CACHE/AM3+)
Motherboard Gigabyte 970A-DS3P AM3+ (ATX, DDR3, USB 3.0, 6Gb/s)
Graphics Card 4GB NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 960
Power Supply CORSAIR 550W VS SERIES™ VS-550 POWER SUPPLY
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit w/SP1

Example of shet FPS is 205 fps on Overwatch on low in training however it would then drops to 35 FPS for a good amount of time.This is even with the resolution on 75 percent.

Another is CSGO on low running on 120 fps for idle 70 when walking and in random fights 35-25

Overall when ever your frames should drop to a normal amount in a game, like a close up fight, i would drop to something extremely choppy.

Feel Free to write if you believe you can help.

Yea. It does the frame drop things because the cpu starts to get pretty hot. So all at once it'll downclock and then the game doesn't like it. You probably just need new thermal compound or a new cooler.

sounds like your having overheating problems either with CPU or GPU, I would download and install HWINFO, and run it in sensors mode, then game until you experience your fps drop, exit game, and look at CPU and GPU temperature either one reading over 85C is a problem

Hi paladin Sorry for the late reply, I installed HWinfo and my CPU temp was 67.8 max and my GPU was 66 Max is this still considered high, or is it still another issue?

that cpu starts to throttle at ~60 degrees

so yea, either the cpu cooler is too weak or it is installed improperly or the fans failed

This is my current CPU cooler is this sufficient?
Corsair H55 Hydro Series High Performance CPU Cooler
Is this too weak? or is it maybe the fact that i haven't put a thermal compound on in once.
I think i know the answer.

"Any ideas My pre-built PC specs are below:"

It was pre built, but i have never personally done it, therefore it been 2-3 years, and now reading more many people say to reapply the thermal paste every two years.
