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

  • MortalCoil64

    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...

  • 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 =)

  • Patrick CA

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

  • 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.

  • Michael Lill

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

  • Enigmation

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

  • legavindary

    there was no next time.....

  • Blake Bauman

    Are these all for Skyrim Specail Edition?

  • HunterZ

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

  • 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

  • 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 :)

  • Nacho

    Excellent video! Thank you for the recommendations.

  • infected king

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

  • jolanpiep

    Subbed, quality content, keep it up!!!

  • 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

  • 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

  • And0ne35

    Keep up the great work fevir! Appreciate the updates!

  • Omar Almalouhi

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

  • Timon Zimmermann

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

  • MrBallPython

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

  • KP Productions

    Now this is Quality content

  • 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.

  • Liono liony

    So are any of these for non special edition?

  • 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.

  • Gorillaz 2-D

    I've installed BethINI and now just because of this,everytime that i try to play,i see a lot of advising red squares all over the map.

  • Random Maniac

    This is very well made! Thanks a lot :D


    Gracias XD 2018 y español

  • Gorillaz 2-D

    Does the BethINI really work? I was trying another program from Nexus mods that it is just like INI but it wasn't working i hope that this one works.

  • Randy Bolante

    Thanks for the video! Surprised that you just have a few thousand subscribers but you put up an excellent content!

  • Ng0d

    I only have 144hz in menus not while being in-game -_-

  • Marlo Matiga

    Enhance lighting fx mod can increase performance dramatically without degrading texture quality in fact it improves how the game looks, atleast for me.

  • Jezreel Villaruel

    thank you fellow dovahkiin

  • PamperedCucumber0100001 Hand「HQ」

    how about Artistic Skyrim Overhaul

  • Summit Lake Hornets

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

  • ZI the creator

    Sooooo basically in order to have all my cooler game changing mods be able to run well enough that my game does not crash i need to basically downgrade my graphics

  • taleana coppola

    When I use the bethini poor preset, it make the hair scalp textures and eyebrows on npcs and my player disappear. I heard that is was because of a certain configuration setting was too low. Does anyone know what setting it is in the ini?

  • MonsterMutt

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

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Sgt Nooodle

    BethINI didn't seem to properly identify my paths when I downloaded and ran it. Is it not compatible with NMM?

  • Death Hunter 102

    Sounds like minecraft music

  • 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

  • Goblin Slayer

    This video gave me 10 more FPS, thanks man, I needed that :)

  • UnboundPlace67

    Fyi, mods such as Bethesda Performance Textures and insigificant Object Remover do work with oldrim, so if you dont have sse you can still try out a majority of these mods even though the list was aimed for special edition

  • 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.

  • MuReece Angel

    Heck yeah dude you are awesome!

  • scottiemcnichols

    I wish you had elaborated more on using BETHini.

  • skyesfury

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

  • 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

  • Jose Dejesus

    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.

  • Fajar Rizqi Azheri

    did it work for skyrim original version??

  • 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

  • Unit4142

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

  • King Jerbear

    Great quality review. Thanks for sharing.

  • 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

  • Sandeep W

    on point and super helpful. Thank you!

  • AmazingGaming

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

  • SpoDEy

    You guys should try ASO (artistic skyrim overhaul). It alters the textures in a very pretty way while making the game easier to run. It has 3 different presets(I use the "paint" version and my game looks amazing)

  • INdie GamER

    thank you. i would really like if you make more videos like this.

  • 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)).

  • Levi Minnis

    You have a really high quality mic. It sounds perfect.

  • Sy Ali

    Great video but I think since you seem altruistic in this downgrading thing, you should have included the statement whether or not each should apply to the basic or the Legendary Edition as well. Some of the people here, including me for the least part is a little bit confused about that.

  • 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.
