I've recently build a new computer but while playing games like battlefield 3 and tf2 I can get random framedrops.

For example, the first time I start battlefield 3 up after launching my pc I get nice a framerate of about 50-60, than after about 20 minutes I start to get framedrops to about 1-5 fps which are gone after 10 seconds. This happens about every 2 minutes and cause me to die, and lag behind. It doesn't matter if I have my setting on high or low, I get the very same result.

I've tried installing diffrent drivers for my graphics card (both normal and Beta drivers) and installing the latest drivers for all the other components.

I'm running a 1-month old windows 8 pro x64 installation.

Here are my specs:

AMD FX-8150 Black Edition
MSI R7850 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC
Asrock 970 Extreme4
Corsair Vengeance 2x4Gb DDR3
Cooler Master GX 750W
Windows 8 Pro (build 9200)

Bios temps:

CPU: 50.00 °C
M/B: 38.00 °C

Vcore: +1.320
12.00V +12.196
5.00v +5.112
3.30v +3.232


Any help would be amazing,
thanks

What type of video card do you have? Is it built-in to the motherboard? That may be the problem.

I'd get a better video card if you are using the built-in one.

Uhm, the videocard is not in-built, the whole thing is a custom build.
I have a MSI R7850 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC (=Radeon HD 7850)

What are you temps and voltages when in Windows?

Download and install HWMonitor, run the program and screenshot the full screen with you system sat idle at the desktop, then leaving HWMonitor running start up a game and run it for 5 minutes or so. Then exit the game and screenshot HWMonitor again.

Post the two screenshots in a reply here.

Your temps all look ok. There is limited voltage information with nothing about the +12v rails etc.

The only possible concern may the the AVCC / 3VCC which should be 3.3v as far as I know. They are both showing a fairly high amount of fluctuations and only just stay within limits which isn't a good sign in my opinion.
