Hi guys,

This is my first post:)

I've been playing WoT for half a year now and quite recently my FPS became very low on the lowest settings (was~120, now it is ~40). I am using my dedicated video card (Nvidia GT 840M),  and have Game DVR turned off. Please help as I don't know what to do.

P.S. All my other games are running perfectly (lol I mean as before), including CSGO which is running at ~100-120 FPS on the highest settings.

Best regards,

Probably dust in your CPU cooler.

 

I would guess CS:GO isn't as taxing on the CPU as WoT so you aren't hitting the thermal throttling.  WoT is very CPU intensive even for a game of it's age.

Overheating would be my guess too.

If you think it is cooling.... Download CPUID, well that's what I use, run WoT see what the max temp climbs to. 

I clean my laptop every couple of months, never looks to dusty, but after temp runs lower and WoT faster. Only problem is the 15 or so screws to strip out so you can get to fan, heat exchanger.

Presume it's a laptop with the 840M GPU.

Good luck

...or just pick up the frames and put them back inside the screen?  :P
