If it's possible have you tried on a different HDD or OS?

Are you running the game with DX10 or DX11?
Anyway, update all your DirectX files and see if it solves the problem.
If not, try to run the game at DX9, at least for diagnostic purpose.

My guess is on the CPU temperature. Those are too high for a Phenom II from what I've seen many others say. From that video, it looks like it may be throttling?

Try it without msi afterburner on?
post #25 of 38
@speednugget i tried it with and without msi afterburner, but got the same result. after alot of testing, i have found that running on the Drivers 266.66 is exactly the same as before. after about half a game of battlefield, it will start to lag every 10-15 seconds for a short spike. it's not as bad as the video portrays, but it's still relatively unplayable. i don't think the dx11 is a problem, as css runs in dx9, but i will try running bc2 in dx9/10. as for the processor, it does get pretty hot under load. after about 10 minutes in BC2, the program i was using (CPUID HWmonitor) said that the heat got to 65 C at the highest. it may get even hotter over time, but thats the hottest it was when the lag spikes started. i have not tried running on a diff OS/HDD, but i do have two hard drives, so that is possible. however, it is time consuming, and if that is not a valid cause then i would rather not. as for the CPU temp, is there any way to cool it off without buying a new heatsink/fan? i have a decent one on there, but the thing is almost touching my RAM and a different fan may not be an option (unless i use water cooling, but i'm a noob to this and not sure how it works, and i'm also out of money >.<) is there any sofware or an option in the BIOS that will let me choose fan speeds/ other ways to reduce the heat? and would an overheating CPU cause these problems? thanks ahead of time for any help or responses.

EDIT running BC2 in a lower DXversion did nothing.

Are you using the stock AMD heatsink+fan?
Such a fan is usually 4-pin PWM and is plugged into a CPU specific fan header on the motherboard. As such, the BIOS+Easy Tune 6 (when they are setup correctly, of course) should be controlling the fan speed according to the temp reading of the CPU. Double check PC Health Status within BIOS.

If you cannot upgrade the cooler and fan, perhaps you can reapply the thermal paste.

Your CPU is at stock speed 2.8GHz and it is hard to imagine it can overheat under gaming. Perhaps the cooler is not installed properly? Anyway, AMD does list the max temp for your CPU as 62C. So, if it reaches 65C, thermal throttling will take place.

BTW, do you have good case airflow?

I upgraded the Fan about 4 months ago, and i had to apply thermal paste while installing. however, i never run ET6 because it creates audio problems, so i have not way of monitoring my cpu fan speeds. the airflow in my case is pretty good, the space around the processor/cpufan is pretty big, and below the gfx card is also alot of empty space. i am in cali right now, and the temp in my room is 80-90 F. so, is there anyway to monitor my fan speeds? unfortunately, i lost the case for this new fan, and i have almost no idea which one it is (pathetic, i know) but if there is anyway to use some software to adjust it, i'm all ears.

Speedfan should tell you temps and fan speeds and make stuff adjustable. Make sure cool and quiet stuff is turned off for CPU fan speed in the bios also

in source games, if the cpu throttles from not enough load ( C1E ) render thread will be hindered drastically.

will do.

also, i changed the gfx card fan speeds so it runs at 65 C at the hottest, and still getting the same problems.
