SHouldn't i get better FPS ?? - Page 4

post #31 of 35
Thread Starter 
Forget it , it says 36 in core temp 0.99.1 ..

It also says the revision of the cpu is E0 . Is that a good one ? I see 920 users say the D0 revisions if i well remember are very good .

And another thing , which chipset/motherboard do you recommend for overclocking on 775 ? It seems my motherboard really doesn't let me pass 3.4 Ghz ..

idles arent important unless u idle at like 70c. you're really impatient are you? dont double post. there's an edit button. it's just forum etiquette.


920 d0...sigh

920 is not the same as your cpu. u cant compare steppings of one cpu to another. it doesnt work that wya. it;s like comparing apples to oranges.

In Mafia II i get pretty much the same performance , no matter what settings i use .

So , at 1280x1024 with all at low i get ~26-27
and at 1800x1440 With all high (including Physx) i get ~24-26

It doesn't seem right to me . Any help please ?

Yes, you can get a Quad-core. You CPU is not only a Dual-core, but one that has 3 times less cache than a E8xxx. You can overclock all you can, but you will never even have the same performance of a lower clocked E8xxx chip.

E0 revision on 45nm Intel Dual and Quad-Cores is better (Core 2 Duo an Core 2 Quad line, Core i7 is whole different thing). It's actually the last revision some of the CPU's got. They tend to overclock better than C1.

If you get a Q6600, try getting the G0, as it uses far less power.

If you want to overclock you should get a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P or something similar, but that is beyond the point with your current CPU, you are not going anywhere with it. Get a Quad Core first. Overclock it. Don't worry about a new 775 board, spend your money on the Quad. Then upgrade platform in a few months.

GTAIV I think you're kinda just out of luck w/that CPU.

Mafia 2 ... there's a chance you can get it to run well ... most of the time. If you do some searching around the webs, there's a way to remove the files needed for Cloth PhysX (cloth physX runs on the CPU unless you have a dedicated gpu for physX, and it's a heavy burden). Find the guide to removing them and do what it says. I know you have physX set to off in the game, but I think that setting is buggy. It's worth trying to remove the cloth physX files just to see if it helps

In truth, you've stumbled upon a couple of 'worst-case scenarios' when it comes to CPU BN effect on your rig. Although BFBC2 is also likely to run poorly I'm afraid. Your cpu is really way overpowered for that gpu, so you're just not going to get the most out of it in a lot of scenarios.

If you can find a decent deal on like a q9400 and OC the heck out of it, you'll be a lot better off. Even an e8400 at 4.0GHz (most of them do 4.0 easy) would be a major improvement.
