Default CPU problem ? (fps drops)

Hello! First of all sorry for my english.

I have a huge problem which i didnt solved yet and its really anoying me. I builded my very first PC two days ago and my specs are :

CASE - NZXT Source SE 210H Black
PSU - XFX 650W Core Edition
CPU - Fx6300
GPU - MSI Radeon R9 270X Gaming 2G 2GB
RAM - Kingston HyperX Blu DDR3 PC12800/1600MHz CL10 8GB (KHX1600C10D3B1/8G)
SDD - Samsung evo 840 128GB

So my problem is that i get small framerate drops in every game ive tried so far, and those games are Battlefield 4 , Thief , Assassins Creed Black flag and Batman Arkham origins. Its not a massive framerate drop but its anoying and it doesnt matter if change graphics to HIGH or LOW framerates drops anyway (even at low). For example Battlefield 4 fps is on 70-80 but almost every 3-5 seconds drops fast to the 40-50 then goes up again and so on. And most of the time it drops when something happen on the screen for example big battles or explosions. I do understand that i dont have perfect PC but this should not be happening at low. Then Assassins creed Black flag , almost all the time fps is around 45 and sometimes goes up, probably because game is big and open field most of the time. And when it comes to Thief i framerate drops almost never , probably because games is almost every time in close quaters , but framerates does drop from smooth 60 fps to the very anoying 40 when in open area. Same happens with Batman Arkham origins. I know this is small fps drops , but belive me its very anoying when goes upp and down whole the time. I bough my pc so i can enjoy. NOT FAIR!

Now what i did to try to fix this?
Ive installed all the drivers and i do thinks they are up to date. GPU drivers are 14.10 version , newest.
Then ive tried to unpack my cpu cores. Then ive watched temperatures on HW monitor to see if its get to high.
CPU goes max at 45 C and GPU somewhere about 50C. And i dont have any program running while playing. I dont know what to do anymore , really. Im so sad that i cant fix my PC from the day i bought it.
I did ordered cooler master hyper 212 to see its that going to save me.

Do you think that my CPU cause this?
Do you think that HW Monitor showing wrong , that my cpu or gpu is actually hot ?

hope you guys can help me ! Thanks in advance!

I've explained this to you in the other thread already.

FPS drop will happen on any setting when the GPU gets tossed a heavy load AKA big explosions or massive field draw (big open areas). I gave you perfect examples of my own situations in the other thread while using a GTX 580 which is similar performance to that of a 270x/7870. That is with a CPU that is significantly better than your own so it isn't a heat or CPU related issue. You want solid FPS to stay above 50 or 60 then you need a better GPU to handle these heavy hitting games at 1080p.

Another thing to do is make sure you have any and all AA turned off.

I agree with PP Mguire. A better GPU will do the trick, and if possible try to get one that has at least 4GB of RAM on it.

+1 for a better GPU- I upgraded to a 290 from a 560ti and BF4 is amazingly better. BF4 still has some issues , but now I can tell it is not my PC that is causing them. So, you must drop the resolution your playing at or purchase a better GPU.
