Looks like everything is normal on the Process Explorer log.

 

I suppose if the power supply was marginal it could cause slowdowns.  Doesn't take long to change it out.

Well, so I replaced the PSU to my older but less used one, I was getting like a few FPS more maybe but that's it. So I have put my better one back.

I also made the pictures with cables and all plugged in/out. I have some cables left like VGA(Blue/2x), AC 97 and FDD, also 2x CPU cables(I have plugged the CPU 1), not sure if they should be plugged anywhere at all. Adding pictures below

The VGA1 cables are power for the graphics card.  On some units they need separate cables because they draw too much to take it from the MOBO.

 

The loose AC 97 cable is for Audio.  Often there are two and you just get to use one based on what your MOBO supports.

 

FDD looks like power for a floppy drive.

So everything looks good?

I've tried connecting both, they both work. So which one should I use? I've read it all there but quite not my case as here all works in both ways

No place on the video card to plug in some extra power?

Hi there I dont think so that you should install 64 bit window if your games are lagging try installing 32 bit.

No idea which CPU connector to use.  Expect they if they are the same connector that the voltages are the same on each so doesn't really matter.

As far as I know GTX 750 Ti doesn't need an extra power cable

And hello there, the main issue here is that I am getting a performance loss after reinstalling the Windows multiple of times, I've been always using 64 bit win. And as far as I know, for good computers, 64 bit win is better. Mine isn't that bad, I am(was) able to run most of newer/est games on med-high-ultra at 60FPS.(Some options off only)   So once again, just trying to figure out, how did I lose that 15-20% performance...

 

And yes, I guess they're the same in my case as I can't plug them both at the same time(got just 4 pins available at once), as I understood, some motherboards have 8 pins or so for extra power for a strong/overclocked CPU.

Hey, it's been a while. I kinda gave up on the performance drop, or either got used.

 

Anyway, I am having another issue now, that appeared a week ago or something. I noticed weird sounds going from my PC, especially while playing. So yesterday I checked my temperatures, all seemed fine(CPU goes to 60-70C as usual) but GPU, on a weaker game, used to be 50-60C, now it's 70-78C and I found out, that the noise goes from my GPU's fan. What's weird, that is all spinning like always have been. I also cleaned the dust very carefully, disassembled all the parts while cleaning(even applied new paste to the GPU and CPU a month ago), so yesterday while cleaning the dust, I checked there was still enough of thermal paste left on the GPU, imo. 

Any tips? Could it be broken or something? Maybe the vibration of the fan is causing something to make the noise, but yet I kinda moved the cables a bit, still the sound exists. Then I put my finger in the middle of the GPU's fan and pushed slightly, so it slowed down, as soon as I did it, the sound disappeared. Must be the fan?

Sounds like time to replace the GPU's fan.

Seem to be lots of replacement fans out there.  Are there two fans?  Is it a GTX 750?

Sorry.  Lost your reply.

 

Do you have the model number on the GPU?  Just search ebay and you will probably find several replacement fans.
