I recently underclocked my video card by closing a couple of pixel pipelines, but then set it back to the original. Now, whenever i play games (CoD2 and WoW), EVERY 2 minutes, the fps suddently drops to 1 and goes back up after a few seconds, even when im facing a blank wall!! It's costing me my life in shooter games! :whistling: This has never happened before, and is NOT a big-cluster-of-people type of lag.

I used the Riva Tuner overclocking program to do this. Please help me! :blink:

Are they all at the same point or random?

This might be a malware issue (infected computer). I'm not strong in the ways of malware but that's what it sounds like. Can you hear a difference in your computer at those points (fans spinning down)?

No known fan issues atm, however I did install some new anti-malware software the day before the problems came up. I installed a HOSTS file to block ads, Windows Defender Beta, and an updated version of Zonealarm.
