4.5ghz 1.39v BFBC2 Crash - Page 3

post #21 of 31
Thread Starter 
IBT completed 50 times at 4.5ghz 1.385v. However this setting caused crashes in BC2

I will try this setting with the new Realtek Driver, and uninstall EasyTune and Afterburner as suggested.

p.s i used the standard setting in IBT. should I be using maximum?

Has anyone suggested just running your chip at stock clocks/voltage and testing with BC2 for a hard lock?

I mean, we'd know immediately if it is actually an unstable CPU overclock or some other issue.

After updating the Realtek driver and uninstalling Afterburner and Easytune, normally I would have expected a crash but as yet no crashes 4.5 @ 1.385v.

I will try reinstalling after burner tomorrow to narrow it down

You can use Afterburner, just shut it down while you're gaming BC2. I was having this problem when I bought my 6950 and it was driving me mad! Just shut the Afterburner down (your clocks won't change, to be sure check GPU-Z or CCC) and after you're done with your gaming start it up again. Simple but annoying wink.gif

I have a Gigabyte board too and Easytune was my problem with BFBC2, it would crash every game about 6 minutes in. Screen would freeze no response from keyboard or mouse.

Right now I DO have msi afterburner installed (beta 5 version) and do not experience any of these crashes anymore, if you do with afterburner you can run it in stealth mode which makes it harder for punkbuster to kick you.



I have about 15 hours of recorded gameplay all using msi afterburner, I am 100% positive you can use it if you are using the beta 5 version and run it in stealth mode.

I run my 2500k at 1.224v while gaming in BFBC2, and it is fine now that easytune is gone, I pushed my CPU up all the way to 1.3G and was still BSOD in bfbc2.

Since you've uninstalled it now, you can push for lower vcore as well.

1.385 vcore seems a bit high for 4.5GHz.

Have you enabled PPL voltage and are using LLC in the bios for your OC?

This actually seems to be a AMD 6XXX problem. I ran AB with my old 5770 all day long playing BC2 while my new 6950 2GB would crash within 10min. I'm not surprised at all that your 560Ti can run AB while playing BC2.

i'm convinced its either EasyTune or Afterburner. I'm running 4.5ghz @ 1.360v all stable no crashes with the 2 uninstalled, while I was crashing at the same speed @ 1.395v

I will try now with the newest Afterburner. how do I run it in stealth mode?
