You’ve come to the right place; Prima Games will show you how to quickly cap your FPS in CS:GO
How to Limit FPS in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
There are two ways for this to be done. The first method is prior to the launch of CS:GO on your PC. You need to right-click the CS:GO from your Steam Library, then go to the Properties, and find Launch options within that Properties menu in the General Section. Check the screenshot below:

In that field, paste the following command:
+fps_max X +cl_showfps 1 +net_graph 1
“X” is the FPS (Frames-per-Second) value that you want to put as the limit. Below 60 is not recommended. You should aim to have the FPS match the Hz (Refresh Rate) of your monitor. These are usually 60, 75, 120, 144, or 240, depending on the make and model (Google it by googling the make and model). If your hardware cannot accomplish this limit that you’ve set and maintain the FPS at a desired level, try reducing the graphics settings, including the resolution.
cl_showfps 1 is the command that allows you to see your FPS in the corner of the screen. The
net_graph 1 command allows you to see that, and some other network shenanigans.
An alternate way of capping your FPS is to open your console and type in
fps_max followed by the value you want to put.
