If it is on Max FPS, then it may go up to, for example, 400 FPS, and some computers can't handle that, so it normally is better to limit your FPS.

no it doesn't work and this is why: when I put a cat on my computer keyboard he pooped on my keyboard but he broke my keyboard and then I got another keyboard for $50 and I know that didn't work so I put my cat on my monitor and it pooped all over my screen. His poop was so sticky.I can't clean the monitor and the poop went inside the button so I can't turn it on and off  and btw my cat is like 25 pounds. After that I got a monitor for like $100 (too expensive) and I tried to put anywhere I think of. Thoughs are a computer thing of course and guess what? yeah you guess it I have to buy thoughs things that got pooped on and destroyed.The total was $1000 and then I was poor after that but I got the money to make a living some how.Thats when I was started typing now. Your/other peoples (I think they're working for Eastonium) evil plan didn't work hahahahahaha and I don't want it to happen to you too :(

Ok so I tried the cat thing and you won't believe it! My fps shot from 0 to 100,000 in seconds.  Earlier today I saw this and thougt, "Dang how can I do this if I have no cats?"  This thought brought me to a decision to buy a cat... or 20.  So I went to the local petstore and said to the person working, "Would you know how many cats you guys have?"  The lady simply said, "We have 27 cats for sale and they're all ready for a new home."  I got excited just when I heard they had any at all and I imediatly said "I'll buy all of them, I am a cat breeder working in a lab to discover genetic traits on these pecific animals."  The lady there gladly help me put the cats into cages and helped me load them into the car.

As I was driving home, I wasn't sure if it was worth it. Because why believe everything you read on the internet right?  Then that's when I heard the cats making lots of comotion in the trunk.  I pulled over to find the cages all over the place, and one cat was out of it's cage.  So then I had to get the cat back into the cage and move some of the cats out of the trunk and into my back seat.  After that was all finished I continued my ride home.

When I got home I unloaded the cats, and brought them inside.  I gave all of them some milk to drink and while they where drinking I realized, and thought to myself, "These cats don't have names" So I simply named each one a letter of the alphabet because I had 27 cats.  I counted the cats only to notice I had 26 with me in the house, so I went back to my car to check if I left one in the car.  There was H just sitting in the drivers seat.  Poor thing looked so hungry, so I fed him some ritz crackers.  That's when I was ready to start playing minecraft and see the magic of these cats begin.

As I was turning on my PC my cats where swarming around me.  I decided to let them climb onto my computer desk and see if this conspiracy was true.  As one jumped up, my computer booted up faster than ever, it was unbelieveable.  Then another jumped up and as I was loggin on minecraft opend in less than a second and was already at the title screen.  I was so hyped and couldn't wait to see what my fps was going to be.  

I logged on to my favorite server and it ran so smoth my cats started to purr so orgasmicly I had to stop fapping that instant and start getting to minecraft.  As I was reaching for F3 one of my 27 cats decided to knock my keyboard on the ground and delayed my epic time to shine.  I picked up my keyboard and when I got up there were 20 cats on my desk.  Despite not being able to see the screen I pushed the cats out of the way and hit F3.  I looked in awe as I saw what had just happend.  My fps was rising rapidly and was already at 10,000.  It was increasing as the seconds gone by and finaly stopped at 100,000.  My dream had come true.

Do what I did and buy 27 cats, and your fps will be over 9,000.  100,000 actually,

-kgp1365152

P.S. for all of you who have maybe have a disease that makes you extremely gulible, or your just extremely guilible in general, I did not buy 27 cats and get to 100,000 fps.
