Ive been having bad frame drops in pretty much every game, and im a little unsure whats causing it. my PC can achieve high frame rates in every game, but its hard for it to stay there. some examples.
Minecraft: 500FPS normally and drops to 10-20
Fortnite: 300FPS drops to 20-30 Every couple seconds
CODMW: 120FPS freezes consistently
my current specs are:
GTX 1660 Super (asus Phoenix)
Intel i-5 9400F (6 thread; 3.8Ghz)
8GB 2400mhz DDR4
MSI h310 Pro m-2 motherboard
500W thermaltake Smart Series
all help is appreciated, just trying to get this solved.

Power throttling
Thermal throttling
Software throttling
Memory throttling

For it to drop so drastically, it's one or more of the above going on.
you think getting 16 gigs of 2666 will help? something tells me 8 gigs of 2400 isnt enough. my ram usage is usually above 7 tho when im playing so
