MSI GD65 problem

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

since I got my new motherboard I am having this issue over and over again. The problem also effects the gameplay of Call of duty black ops.

It's like this:

when I boot up the computer, everything just works fine. But I always tend to let my computer go to sleep mode instead of turning it off, but when I do this and I start up CoD:BO I have continuous framedrops and my FPS wont go above 50. It's just unplayable. When I reboot my computer Black Ops just works fine again (90+ fps constantly).

The framedrops I'm describing ALWAYS occur during the first five seconds of each new game i start in call of duty, even when i start up the game after a clean reboot. After these 5 seconds the game plays perfectly normal.

Thought it was just the game but my brother has an i7 860 and his computer is slow as hell at the moment (too much bloatware) but whenever his games starts his system doesn't have any framedrops at all, it just plays really smooth from the first second.

So I started thinking that the only problem it could be is the power management of my CPU, since an i5 downclocks when it doesn't need the full 3.3Ghz. CPU-ID tells me that when i'm idling in windows it only works @ 1595Mhz and when it needs all the power it goes up to 3498 (or something like that). So i'm guessing, since Black Ops is a pretty CPU based game, that the "framedrops/lag" i'm having is caused by the CPU switching over from 1595Mhz to the full 3.3Ghz or more (turboboost)?

The only thing I don't get is when I wake up my system out of stand-by mode, CPUID tells me the clockspeed of my 2500k is 3498Mhz the whole time, even when idling @ windows and this is @ the same moment that CoD:BO is completely unplayable. Is it some kind of conflict within my CPU and with the turboboost function?

Maybe there is someone here who plays CoD:BO and has the same motherboard as I have and has an i5 sandy bridge cpu? Maybe he could give me the best bios settings?

I did not overclock my CPU yet, don't find it necessary yet.

I'm really getting messed up with this problem, and I know it's probably just some setting I have to adjust.

Thanks in advance for reading this huge post !

Turn off speed step CE1 and EIST and try if that helps.
Do a cold start before you change and see if it's related to the sleep mode.

Ok both disabled now but still no improvement.. Could this be a cpu error or just the mobo?

Tried a different realtek driver for your onboard soundcard?

installed latest audio driver and bios update. Neither helped.
even bigger problem now:

when I press "Sleep" in windows 7 it just gives me back the login screen instead of going to sleep :/ god damnit.
already loaded optimized defaults in BIOS...

EDIT: recovered windows, was some kind of problem with a windows update, is fixed now. PC goes to hibernate again.

problem is really simple i guess: if i can fix the fact that the 2500 doesn't stay at it's max clock for the whole time after waking up out of hibernation the problem with cod stuttering would probably also be fixed...

can atleast someone tell me this is rather a CPU, mobo or windows problem?

more than likely it's your hard drive. when you go into hibernate it stores most of the active memory into the hiberfil file. and this can be around 6-8 gigs of memory at times. that takes a few minutes to reload into memory. and while it's loading into memory your cpu is going to fluctuate between min and max speed. if your trying to play cod at the same time as this is happening then that's going to slow it down further , prolong the reload of memory and cause stuttering in cod as it's trying to load the map off the hdd at the same time.
