    Hi all

    I have a Clevo laptop with a PM 2ghz, Ge7800GTX and 2gb RAM

    I'm playing wow on high gfx settings, and get a constant 60fps. However, at random intervals I get occasional 1-2min periods of sudden fps drop.. i'm talking 8-12fps. Obviously this is very annoying. I have tried to find out what might cause this problem but didnt manage.

    I have turned on my laptop fans full on.
    I have turned off my AV in case its running some scans.

    ANy idea what I can monitor to try find out whats happening in those mins where it slows down immensely? Thanks all

    Ok it seems i found something..

    I rand RivaTuner and MobMeter..

    CPU temp is constant 57-60.. on RivaTuner tho it shows that the GPU is at 71 when I start playing.. fps are good.. it starts rising slowly and when it hits 88, my fps slow down dramatically.. the GPU starts cooling down slowly till about 73-74 and then my FPS go back to normal, and the GPU starts heating up again.. and the cycle goes on

    so.. is it a question of overheating? Can i do anything about it?

    Laptops are hard to keep cool.. Just really cramped.

    My PC runs a lil hot with WoW too, I'm finding.. and I have 6 large fans.
    Not sure there is much to do, maybe lower settings.. ??

    build a platform for the laptop to sit on, to create more airflow under the case.
