 Hi,


I own a E1-570G. I bought a new set of ram : HyperX Impact So-dimm DDR3L 1600MHz 8GB (4gb x2)
The problem is that i noticed that the performance of my pc got a lot worse.
My fps dropped to 30 fps from a 120 fps ( in league of legends)
I'm sure that my nvidia geforce 720m is active when i play...but i can't explain the drop of fps

    on nvidia control panel under Power management mode, choose Maximum Performance.

    be sure that nVidia is working when playing LoL.

    A "quick" thing to try...unplug the new ram module and check if LoL FPS returns to pre ram increase.

    if so, can be a bad ram module.

    So, I just tried and the fps was around 40 dropping to 30. What do you think is the problem?

    CPU not throttling

    some nVidia settings (like Performance settings)

    Windows power options
