Hi guys. Ok so I went from a computer with the following specs:

FX-8320 8-core (running at stock - 3.5ghz)

NVIDIA gtx560ti twin frozr oc

8GB DDr3 (1600mhz cl9)

an old 500gb seagate disk for OS + programs

500w cheap psu


to this "beast" of a computer, and now I experience lower FPS in CS:GO than ever before.. Previously I had 200+fps stable (150+ in deathmatch with 32 players), now I experience 150fps+ stable (100+ in deathmatch with 32 players). Boy what a disappointment:


Graphics Card:

XFX Radeon HD 7970 3GB (running at 1000MHz GPU clock and 1475MHz memory clock.. OCed in AMD Vision Engine Control CEnterr with Graphics OverDrive). 

AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History:

Newest beta driver (Before: The previous beta driver)

Operating System:

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit - updated.

Issue Details:

Low FPS in Counter Strike Global Offensive at 1024x resolution and low settings (AA settings on tho).

Motherboard or System Make & Model:

Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z

Power Supply:

Silver Power SP-650W

Display Device(s) and Connection(s) Used:

Samsung 2233RZ 120hz (DVI)

Applications and Games:

CS:GO is the only game I have installed, besides the low FPS in CSGO everything seems normal.  

CPU Details:

AMD FX-8350 8-core 4.0GHz (Got a stable 4.6GHz overclock) with water cooling.

Motherboard BIOS Version:

Latest BIOS version available from ASUS.

System Memory Type & Amount:

Kingston DDR3 HyperX Beast 16GB (2x8GB 2400MHz CL11. Running at 1600MHz tho)

Additional Hardware:

Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB SSD for OS and main programs/games + 3TB seagate for storage.

Additional Details:

Clean Windows install on completely new hardware. All drivers are up to date. No viruses/spyware Etc. No hardware checks have been done tho.

Besides the dissapointing FPS in CS:GO, everything runs as normal - the computer is extremely fast in whatever I do. 


What should I do?
