I helped a friend with something similar recently, his cpu was holding him back and his gaming "surged" is the best way I can describe this. Fraps was saying he had 45-50fps, but the min frame rates were single digits trying to feed his gpu. we poped a new cpu in and his surging went away. I would lean towards something like this, your 4100 should be powerful enough to feed it, but maybe hitting thermal, down clocking any number of things could take a decent cpu and make it perform like this.
