FPS drops

Hey,
Ever since a few days, my FPS went down considerably; I've been using Chris' Highframes for a good time now. I use a laptop plugged to a 144Hz monitor to play, and while I had no issue running the game at really high FPS I now notice my framerate going as low as 100, then jumping back to around 200-230, what I usually get. I didn't install any new softwares that might have caused that issue, ran an antivirus check (negative), cleaned the fans..

CPU: i7-3630QM @2.40GHz
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 670M
Windows 8, 16.0 Go of RAM

Any ideas are welcome!

Try using Comanglia's fps config, chris' one is pretty outdated afaik.

I'll try using Comanglia's, but I'm surprised that something that has been doing the job for a good amount of time just suddenly stopped working without a reason..

Windows 8 is really terrible to game on, consider getting windows 10 if anything.
If Comanglia's config doesn't work try reinstalling TF2 or refreshing your OS (should be able to do that without losing much data).
If that doesn't work, try looking at your task manager to see which processes are running. If you are using any software in the background while playing, an update to the software might have caused framerate issues in TF2. Try disabling the programs one by one to see which one is possibly causing an issue.
If that doesn't work, then there is probably a hardware issue which I can't help you fix.

Really how so ?

N3voAny ideas are welcome!

Get Dxtroy and cap your framerate to about 100 and try that if anything
I do a solid 33 fps even in cluttered situations with a laptop that is much more terrible than yours

My bad. I had windows 8 when it first came out and it was horrid for gaming at the time. Constant performance drops and lower performance than Windows 7 across the board, with lacking support for certain games. Looks like Microsoft has done their job and updated the OS to an acceptable standard performance wise.

Windows 8 has better performance than windows 10 and windows 7, although it is a bit weird to get used to. The main problem I have with windows 10 is that every update breaks something, and corrupts the os

How can a windows 10 update corrupt the entire OS??? What are you even talking about

the game has updated a lot in five years, even if it doesn't feel like it. commands that were relevant or behaved differently in chris' time no longer function the same way, perform the same action, or just totally break everything because of regressions.

windows 10 has been pretty notorious for pushing updates that completely break the system depending on the prior system configuration. microsoft has been really bad about bugtesting their shit before forcing it on every user

I have never heard of this happening until now, and it's never happened to me and I've been using Windows 10 since it came out...

Having managed around 300 or so Windows 10 installs through work, it's possible you've never run into it, but it sure as hell happens. Mainly with machines that were upgraded - I don't think I've ever seen it happen on a Windows 10 install that started as Win10.
