I can play GTA IV flawlessly with maxed settings. lol The only game I've seen a small problem was Arkham City during the Penguin battle, and I've seen a couple of people with 2500k's and 470's say the same thing.

trust me its stable even at 4Ghz, i have this cpu for 4 years now. in 4 diffrent motherboards i know it inside out tongue.gif:P
overal in wow my fps is 50~100 fps, but a big fight in a battleground or something and im down to 25fps, i use the auto settings from wow,
my gpu usage in bf3 is 99% but in wow in a battleground its using like 35%
edit: even 1on1 in warsong gulch is 30% usage not low fps but it isnt using the card at its potential -.- il post a screen tommorow


@above what resolution with gta4 and car intensity and stuff (the sliders)
and what fps you get? i mean 45 fps or less isnt smooth to me. and not drop below that 45

Thanks in advance,

Freezing is usually a lack of Dram Voltage, especially if your tightening. It's also not uncommon to require more than manufactures specified voltage on the AMD platform as they rate Dram Voltage for Intel which uses less. This would apply even for stock timings and freq. Usually an additional .05 to .1v will do the trick for stock.

I have a question regarding Gigabytes note on their site, they say that "For optimum performance, if only one PCI Express graphics card is to be installed, be sure to install it in the PCIEX16_1 slot", in the future if I will upgrade my GPU than I would have to install it in PCIEX16_2 due to the case space limitations (taking in mind that newer GPUS are lengthier from their predecessors), does it really make any difference in performance?

I'm running Cata @ 1080p on ultra with AF16x and AA x4. No major dips in BG's.
But as you say, my GPU is not always fully used, but WoW always has been very CPU intensive.
Also, make sure you use the command:
processAffinityMask "15"
That should help, a bit at least.

@Frietpan I mostly did PVP and Raid healing, I would have been totally disgusted with anything less than around the mid 50's constantly.

I think your running a bunch of CPU intensive "Add-on's". Wow with just a few light or no addon's is a total joke. My brother had this problem back in cata. He was running Carbonite, AH, DPS metter(full data logging on), Healbot, Custom UI overlay and every other "raiding essential" he felt he "needed". At the lowest of low settings he would pull 15-20 FPS durring raid's and BG's with high latency.

He could have also chose to lighten the addon load and play at high video settings with some eye candy on and still get very playable FPS by my picky standerds. He was running a core2duo OC'ed and a AMD 65XX GPU(I think on the GPU part...) My 2 cents.

Haven't played in a while, The car intensity is over half I remember right, and it stays in the 40's IIRC. That's at 1920x1080.

Anyone know if the CM V6 GT will fit on the UD3? I have some G. Skill Ripjaws in channels 1 and 2 in the ram slots. Just ordered this monster and realized that it might not fit. mad.gif

They should fit. ripjaws aren't as tall as Flares I use.

I'm having issues tuning any kind of voltage will cause the UD7 to either no boot, Or I 'll get in to windows and the Screen go's black after a couple minutes idle, and the GPU's fan go's up.

it's only doing it when I adjust voltage on the board.

It won't have any problems BECAUSE your sticks should be in the 1 and 3 slots. On the UD3 the socket layout is 4/3/2/1 not 1/2/3/4.
