Hey Guys. I recently finished building my new Rig, and I'm getting 250FPS and drops randomly to about 100-160. My friend has the same rig, but with an i7-4770k, and he's getting constant 300+. Thanks for everybody who helps :D

This could be caused if you have "Power management mode" in your NVIDIA 3D Settings set to Prefer maximum performance. Have you overclocked your cpu? That was another reason for me to random fps drops.
he's implying win8 may cause significant fps drops on some builds, compared to win7
the reason may not be so obvious, like:
windows power management - high performance.
unpark all cores.
video.cfg in /cfg - mat_queue_mode 2 instead of -1/0.
refresh rate max
prefer max power
single display performance
