@OP update your video driver... also...6gb ram with windows 64 and wow 64 may not be enough to run at ultra settings...
Stop overclocking...it's bad...ALWAYS...
Also, check if your cpu is not overheating...this might be the problem
Have you disabled the integrated graphics in BIOS?
@op Ive noticed certain zones cap me @ 30 fps for no apparent reason with any settings, then I pass a border and boom 60 fps and I do enable Vsync, think its some optimization errors similar to D3 launch tbh.

Possible its because of my harddrive? Its a really old one. Guess i can check HDD-load while im playing with some software, any tip?
Also, i have WoW and Windows on the same harddrive if that matters. 7200rpm, its maybe 4 year old or something.

Do you always play in windowed mode?
Do you have this bad fps in fullscreen?

I'm not sure how to help, but I used to have something similar happen to me (given this was several years ago, but may be related). I used to have this problem where any time there was blue fog (like, walking through a forest and seeing the blue fog in the distance) my FPS would plummet into single digits. The weird thing was that I could have my view distance set to the max and the rest of the world was fine, but as soon as the blue fog showed up the game became unplayable. Unfortunately, I don't remember how I fixed it.
More things being seen means more of the cpu/gpu/ect being used...
Don't think anybody doesn't have this "problem".. but is it really a "problem?" I don't think so.
More everything usually involves a fps drop, unless you're going to run quad 690s..
Im not stupid, i know it requires more of your hardware with better view distance/better settings, but, read above, also that i have a i5 2500k at 4.5ghz should be enough. Especially when other ppl have better FPS with worse hardware. Its kinda obvious for me that something is wrong.
And again, im also talking about 5 man instances. Not only world. Raiding in a 25man guild so this will really be a problem later on i guess. I had almost no problem before MOP. So ya, something is wrong. For me it seems that it isnt WoW itself (but at the same time, it is), since as i said, others dont have this problem.

this is a kinda crazy, probably not right suggestion but i have seen it once. it is possible that your overclock has failed and reset to a extremely low base frequency. an inexperienced overclocker friend of mine set an unstable OC, it blue screened while he was away from the computer and he never noticed it when he went back to his computer(just started it up by pushing the button) and his i5 2500k was set to 1.6ghz in a safe mode. i come over and say obv your FPS sucks at 1.6ghz!! lol.
well might as well check it eh?
wish i could voice my opinion on someone elses opinionin this thread but alas i will pass. i just wish people would stop posting false information like wow uses more gpu then cpu.
