fps randomly drops from 100+ to 30-40 on a high end system?

Exactly what the title says. Lets say for instance im in a game of battlefield 4 and im playing for a min and then my fps randomly drops to 30-40 fps, lagging for a few seconds and then jumps straight back up too 100 again? I just bought the card, motherboard, cpu and psu so its all brand new ive tried cleaning it though and i still get the problem i also have disabled the silent and something i dont remember that amd cpu's have. PLEASE HELP! :) My Specs btw: GPU: GeForce GTX 970 (zotac) CPU: AMD FX(tm)-8350 Eight-Core Processor RAM 8.00 GB Res i play 1920 x 1080, 60Hz OS: Win 7 home premium

Mobo UEFI or BIOS?

If you mean have i updated my BIOS then no should i?

  rdave13 00:02 21 Dec 2014

No. I meant is the mobo UEFI running in legacy mode to accommodate Windows 7? You mentioned everything is new including the mobo. Does the mobo have BIOS or UEFI?

My mobo is a Asus M5A78L-M USB3 im preety sure its BIOS?

I dont know but i think it might be the cpu fan speed maybe not going fast enough?

doubt 30-40 fps would be lagging you playing online if so i would be looking at your ping rate

  axum117 01:12 21 Dec 2014

I have turned up my gpu fans speed and the drop still happens but id say it isnt as bad and happens less frequently and less noticeable

  axum117 01:33 21 Dec 2014

And im playing online yea but now when it drops to 30-40 it dosnt lag as much but is still spitty and jittery

Also it dosnt follow a pattern it will randomly drop then shoot back up, and it does it on multiple games on and offline
