I've had an Asus Strix GL704GM for 4 years and I'm currently experiencing performance issues.
From what I understand, the computer uses the Armoury Crate software to control the CPU and GPU usage as well as the cooling system.
There are 3 settings (silent, balanced and turbo, names might not be accurate as my system is not set to english) and I'm using the first one most of the time, as long as I don't play games that recquire higher performances.
My issue is that whenever I'm using any other setting (balanced or turbo), the performance will indeed increase for about 5 minutes but I will then have heavy FPS drops for a few seconds every 30 seconds or so.
It is very annoying and makes it even worse to play on balanced or turbo than in silent mode, the average constant FPS is lower but at least I don't experience the heavy drops.
Has anyone else experienced this ? Does anyone have an idea on what could be causing it ? How to find out ? How to fix it ? Any help is welcome
