Well, Tried like every single driver that is available and I dont think its an issue caused due to the driver. More like something with CPU Power Managment or smth like that. Always when drops are incoming the CPU gets freakin loud and after the FPS drop its quiet. Every 20-60 s i have those FPS drops. Temperatur is always like 50-60 °C when I play games.

Can you capture a graph of the gpu and cpu(all cores) activity when this is happening?

I take it you mean the CPU fan, under thermal management control, becomes very loud.  If that's the case, it would seem you're running into thermal throttling.  Assuming that guess is correct, you'll want to check airflow in the case, and the heatsink mount.

Make sure that "600W" PSU is providing 12v at 12.000v or above under load.

This ist absolut typical for thermal throtteling!

Your Program dont logging the Thermal peaks!

Your CPU Fan cant cool you CPU, basically the temp from 60° is very to high with a good Cooler. My FX-8150 runs whit 6x4GHz at 1,45V an the CPU is everytime not over 55° whit a BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro C1 Air Cooler.

Good Temp whit no OC ist between 45-50° max under full load, whit Boxed Cooler.

Remove your Cooler and look if it fit korrekt. Remove the Thermal Pad and Use Thermal grease.

Pls dont say that where not the Problem, THIS ist the only Problem!

There is a know issue with bulldozer CPUs and certain motherboards. A BIOS update might help. Do you have the latest BIOS for your motherboard? You need the AGESA 1.2.7.1 CPU Microcode or later.

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 810 @ 3120MHz | RAM: Kingmax 2x2GB DDR2 800 @ 833MHz| MoBo: MSI K9A2 CF v1.0 (BIOS: 1.D)| GPU: Asus HD 6850 1024MB (DirectCu) @ 835/1135MHz | Display: L24FHD | PSU: PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 Quad | OS: MS Windows 3.11 Pro x64

This process of going to a forum, asking questions, and then acting on the responces you get works better if you actually do act on them... just saying. 

You can forget about the power supply... that's not an issue here.  You're getting hit with thermal throttling which is slowing your system down in order to produce less heat in the first place.  If a bios update doesn't fix it, and there's no way to adjust thermal profiles to avoid throttling, then you need better airflow and/or a better heatsink in order to dissipate heat more effectively.

It just CANT be thermal throttling. I just installed a fan for my housing and after I did that my pc got WAY quieter and WAY cooler but now I had an issue that the power of my pc went down. I even had lags without Xsplit in League of Legends + the heat of the PC when i installed new FAN was like CPU - max 49 °C, PSU max 57 °C and GPU max 35 °C
