The Best Skyrim PERFORMANCE & FPS Increasing Mods - 2017

Today I'll be going a list of the best Skyrim mods to help improve your game performance and FPS in game. This list of Skyrim mods are mainly directed at the Special Edition version of Skyrim even though these mods will either work or have versions for the original version.

As far as performance and FPS increase mods go.. usually you are going to be stuck with removing stuff or downgrading.. I tried to avoid the Skyrim mods that do weird cartoon effects or just unplayable (for me) quality- because of this I stayed on mods that either optimize or change things you usually won't notice.

Make me seem relevant:


Skyrim Special Edition Mod list for Increased Performance and FPS:

Simply Optimized Textures for SSE

Project Optimized Textures Skyrim Special Edition

Bethesda Performance Textures

Insignificant Object Remover

Less Grass and Such

Revamped Exterior Fog

Interior and Dungeon Fog Remover

Remove Interior Fog v2

Remove Clouds

No More Radial Blur

Frame Rate Stutter Fix - Steady

    It's criminal how you don't have more subscribers. Maybe try really lewd thumbnails to draw people in? I bet they'll stay for the good content

  • VDMW Moldis

    Thanks to this guide, my skyrim no longer runs with an arrow to its knee

  • Tomtenisse Powercool

    7:20 min into this video and just now i'm like "wait, why am I watching this? I don't play skyrim" super entertaining.

  • Ben H.

    By far, one of the better underrated mod reviewers. Thanks again!

  • Maddash141

    man I have found that after skyrim Remastered came out its almost impossible to find a video that will give you a list of regular skyrim fps mods...

  • Adam Jones

    The thing I hate about skyrim is the cap at 60fps. You can't go over otherwise the physics will be royally fucked. I hope Bethesda make a new engine in the future instead of just upgrading an old one.

  • Patrick CA

    This is quality content :). You are now on my Senpai list.

  • Blake Bauman

    Are these all for Skyrim Specail Edition?

  • The Panacea

    I wanted to ask you something. Any chance you could cover my mod? It is called The Great Realism Overhaul and is huge gameplay overhaul that changes almost everything about the game to make it more realistic and challenging, from the combat to the crafting to the perks to the economy. It is still a work in progress, so DLCs have not been done yet, but it will come someday. I hope you would check it out as i have worked really hard at this mod for a year now and people that are playing it, really seem to like it, but not alot of people know that it exists. I was hoping you could do a showcase of it in one of your videos. Either way thanks =)

  • Mark Lemus

    had to do this when I was running this in VR. The opening wagon scene is something I will never forget, to lean over and see the wooden wheel spinning was amazing.

  • legavindary

    there was no next time.....

  • Enigmation

    Can't believe I only found your channel now. Quality vid!

  • Martín Sanchis

    I noticed that some mods in the description are for Skyrim Special EditionThose mods work with the normal Skyrim?btw, this is a pretty good video

  • Jack Eaton

    Why did u stop making videos? I’m sure u have a good reason, but Man U made some quality content on here, sad to see u go

  • jolanpiep

    Subbed, quality content, keep it up!!!

  • Michael Lill

    just tried adding the Project Optimized Textures Skyrim Special Edition. the mod no longer exists?... help?

  • And0ne35

    Keep up the great work fevir! Appreciate the updates!

  • Karlyah Dreloth

    So I got a better machine a while ago, but this is one of the most informative videos on the topic that I've ever seen. The 'me few months back' would love this.So straight to the point and oddly soothing.Since running Skyrim on a calculator can be complicated (especially deadly for newbies & common pc users) -Huge thanks for saving many headaches :)

  • infected king

    Thank you bro i can now play it with more fps performance thanks very much.

  • HunterZ

    This honestly helped me so much! Thank you for making this video omg! <3 Subbed!Keep making content man! :D

  • Gennaro

    I'm so happy I found your channel man you're honestly my new favorite mod reviewer i wish you had a bigger catalogue of videos up I already binge watched them all ! Awesome work hope to see more from you soon man

  • Timon Zimmermann

    Could you please link Vindsvepts channel in the description if you use his music. I hope this does not sound rude.

  • Nacho

    Excellent video! Thank you for the recommendations.

  • Liono liony

    So are any of these for non special edition?

  • KP Productions

    Now this is Quality content

  • MrBallPython

    If your going to do mods for SSE put that in the description instead of the original one its misleading.

  • chris walls

    I wish people would mention in the header that it's special edition. I've clicked on a lot of videos this past week that where special edition. They are two different games.

  • Omar Almalouhi

    I find it criminal that most of those mods arent availble for standered skyrim

  • Wardeni

    I don't know, I have a GTX 1060 with 6Gb of VRAM, a 6-core processor and an SSD hard disc. Yet Skyrim still kinda runs like crap. It's an old game and I'm barely getting 70 fps on a brand new rig. doesn't make sense that witcher 3 runs twice as well.


    Gracias XD 2018 y español

  • Jezreel Villaruel

    thank you fellow dovahkiin

  • Tony D

    Windows 10 has a V-RAM cap of 4gb total for DX9Windows 10 has a feature called "Memory Compression" designed to reduce how often it has to hit the page file. This will cause Skyrim to stutter and stall when it triggers. To disable this open an administrator powershell prompt and run the commandDisable-MMAgent -MemoryCompression to Re-enable it is Enable-MMAgent -MemoryCompression and to view its current status you wantGet-MMAgent.This fixed my horrible FPS dropping with stuttering.I have 200+ mods I understand I'm not going to run at 60 FPS non-stop but the stuttering from 60 ish to 30 and sometimes 20 is just unplayable imo when just moving the camera around outdoors.Some people seem to not have issues running 300+ mods which was odd to me that I was getting such horrible performance especially having a I7 6700 32gb of ram a 500gb Nvme SSD and a GTX 1070 (laptop) even with proper master file cleaning, load order, non conflicting mods and bash patch.Hope this helps anyone that comes across it.

  • Kinxzy

    not sure what happend but i used bethini all i changed was removing music and it told me it would auto change 2 settings and now the game doesnt want to run lol

  • Random Maniac

    This is very well made! Thanks a lot :D

  • Death Hunter 102

    Sounds like minecraft music

  • MonsterMutt

    for the remove cloud mod, it works for regular skyrim, but you will have to install it manually.

  • Christian Puga

    Are some of these mods compatible with COT (Climates of Tamriel?)Regardless, this video was helpfully informative. I'm running roughly around 50-60 mods, some of which are "heavy" and I was desperately looking for some mods which improve performance. Glad I found you & this video.(Make no mistake though, yes I know there are people who run with over a hundred mods (how tf)).

  • MuReece Angel

    Heck yeah dude you are awesome!

  • Summit Lake Hornets

    I have two words for you ....................... THANK YOU

  • RichardJR Cecilio

    haysss... almost all are for Skyrim Special Edition only. Is it possible to use SSE Mods in the original old version of Skyrim?

  • is not possible

    half of these are for special edition, why would someone play special edition if they cant even run original skyrim?

  • Spicy-Pepper

    Really helpfull video, very clear and precise. I did enjoy the "calm, chill out" atmosphere you put in your video. I haven't test those I've downloaded yet, put I can't see how it wont work for me and help me having a better experience in-game. So thank you man.Thanks for your good work man, and thanks to the mod authors.

  • Sandeep W

    on point and super helpful. Thank you!

  • George Allen

    I think I DO prefer what it looks like without clouds, fog, and lots of clutter. I prefer the "clean pastel fantasy" look to the "grey-grime realistic" look. Thanks for the video!

  • Akash Kumar

    Hi thanks for the video. I wanted to ask a question about BethINI. I wanna try it out but I've made some changes to the game directly after accessing the INI files so I don't know if using this mod will override those settings or adjust to them.If anyone can answer I'd be thankful.

  • Unit4142

    Outstanding. A lot of these mods should really help me out, thanks for all your research.

  • Teaze

    Thanks for helping me man! The Simply Optimized Texture Pack helped me alot, I have a GT 720, that can run special edition but at a framerate a bit under 30 FPS

  • Evgeniy Karmanovskiy

    I don't know. This would've been fantastic video if at least half of mods were for normal skyrim. I use only one of these mods because its the only one that's not special edition

  • General Feldsalat

    Nice video, but im only having problems with fps in Riften for example... In cities in general, its just skyrims crappy engine, pretty heavily modded...

  • Dontrell Durant

    Are any of these fixes for just plain Skyrim?Not the Special Edition?Because I don't have that one.I have the legendary edition, but not the special edition.


    damn it its for sse T-T

  • That_Fox Gamer113

    does it have to be in SSE i mean come on man

  • Caleb Able

    Are any of these mods actually featured in Bethesda mods?

  • Osiris Paradox

    anyone know if i convert the skyrim ones if they'll work for SE?

  • legenda.

    What’s the song in the beginning?

  • Skyrim PT BR

    Background song please!

  • LukeWalk1

    0:14 And other times its just the engine is just a piece of crap and a horrible effort at trying to fix the damn gamebryo engine. STOP IT BGS! Give us that new engine that TES deserves.Edit: Also the suggestions are excellent! Keep up the good work!

  • Ric DG

    Are "Skyrim performance plus" or "Low resolution particles" separate mods? Cause I can't seem to find the link for them in the description

  • skyesfury

    I didn't know about the 30/60 FPS nonsense. That explains soooooo much about the stutters I was getting in Oldrim.

  • Tommy Kung

    Please don't stop making videos. Even it's not about Skyrim I'm okay. I just want to listen to your relaxing and comforting sound !

  • Azwrath Frost

    Reducing the texture size of Texture BSA in the data folder. and downloading performances texture pack will reduce VRAM usage speed up loading screens.

  • Falchion

    hmmm no tutorial...just bla bla bla...

  • Abyss Will

    I used to play skyrim with a lot of mods, now Im stuck with a Intel HD Graphics 4200, i dont even know if it will run skyrim but Im gonna try, my question is: Is there any vercion less demamnding for shit computers??

  • Symon

    One tip: Turn off grass sway animation.I usually turn it off because is breaks my immersion but it also helps with performance and thats something you wont miss

  • DJ Sickey

    Dude this is top quality vid... Problem could be that Gopher and MxR mods started this business before you ? You deserve all subs they have, and even more...

  • AmazingGaming

    Wait, Is this for Vanilla Skyrim? or the Special edition?

  • Stasian Atanasov

    should have said its skyrim se not skyrim

  • day one

    wow thanks I managed to configure with beth ini to get 30 extra fps
