    I've recently purchased a JTAG so I am new to all of this, so pardon my ignorance. I've been trying to play some backups and I've noticed drops in framerate every now and then. It's not that big of a deal but rather an annoyance. Is there anyway to fix this?

    Are you playing them on DVD/External USB or Internal HDD?

    Odd.
    Have you set the fanspeeds higher?
    JTAGs usually run hotter then normal consoles so extra cooling from the fans can't hurt.
    Infact it prolongs the life of the console.

    Could just be the game. Lots of games seem to have framerate drops as the devs just don't seem to care and will happily sacrifice it for pretty explosions.

    Should try something like Bayonetta or one of the Call of Duty games or anything that is known to have a good stable framerate.

    I hardly notice frame rate drops.
    Maybe OP had his CPU/GPU temps running hot.
    That's know to cause destabilization in the chips.

    My fan seems to be permanently set to full speed. One of the games I get a lot of fps lag on is Brutal Legend. I'm starting to think it may just be a laggy game.

    Yeah best thing to do is pick up a game that has a more or less constant 60FPS. If the framerate drops in those games then you know youve got an issue somewhere. Otherise, its just game related.

    Brutal Legend does lag in places on Retail as i have the game.

    Best games to try that should run smooth as silk are:

    Burnout Paradise
    COD MW / MW2 / Black Opss
    Devil May Cry 4
    Forza 2, 3 or 4
    Ridge Racer 6
    RAGE
    Rayman Origins
    Streetfighter 4
    Virtua Tennis Series
    Ninja Gaiden 2


    There is probably a load more, but any of the above games are more or less locked to 60fps and should tell you where your problem lies (if you have one)
