Low framerate here and there in my Games..... [Y570]

[ Edited ]

When I'm playing Red Orchestra 2 on my Lenovo Y570; the game will run perfectly smooth. The the framerate will drop below 30fps for a little while, then will go back to whatever it was at normally. 

 

Could this be because of over-heating of my GPU?

Did you already check the temperature while playing games?

I would not run my machine at CPU=82C.  I run coretemp on my machine and idle is 45C.  I don't like it to be up at 68C.

 

Maybe the CPU heatsink needs a bit of a vacuuming!

It's 82, when I playing games, but when it's in idle is about 40-55C

Would sending it in to Lenovo be a good idea?
