Random Reboots After Overclocking - Page 4

post #31 of 52
Things like tdp,how far the cpu nb frequency can be taken upto,the ht link and the overall plethora of settings it offers you to tweak with. Remember when overclocking you want to try keeping all settings to manual instead of auto. Just glad u followed our advice and got it to run fully stable. Always a pleasure to help. If you want to overclock further tell me il help you with that but first u need to monitor your cpu and core temps,use this software,it's called hwmonitor. Keep me posted!. Dude with regard to dragon age origins its your graphics card holding you back especially at your resolution. You might want to look in for a graphics card upgrade and stick with the processor you have.

If it hasnt been suggested, the PCIe bus needs to be locked at 100. higher settings can cause funky issues with video cards. also try looser ram timings or more ram voltage.

Also the 4850 is still decent, even for 1920x1080. Just dont use FSAA and aim for medium-high settings instead of just turning every detail setting to max.

What makes you point to the graphics card? I mean every since I began down this path people have been pointing at every component and saying: That HAS to be the problem!

My goal at present, is to achieve a steady forty frames per second in Dragon Age: Origins. In one of the most intensive areas I was oscillating between twenty five or so and thirty. After the overclock it\s generally thirty with almost instantaneous drops to twenty eight or twenty nine and back to thirty.

Problem is, I don't have a lot of money to throw at this problem. I figure I can afford to upgrade on thing, so I need to make absolutely sure it's the thing that will give me the greatest performance boost.

Dude if you're going full HD on games, i'd suggest you upgrade that card. It's fine for medium-spec gaming at that res but nothing beyond that. It's not the game, it's not the processor neither is it the mobo, Its the card plain and simple. If you're aim is forty frames, get a new card or lower your settings, dunno what other people have told you though. Your best bet is overclocking the card and not the processor. With my card, i'm barely in the mid 40's to early 50's at a res of 1366x768.

Depends on your budget. Also, how much RAM do you have?

4 gigabytes DDR2 800

Around a hundred and fifty- which I tend to doubt will trump what I already have. Obviously, the less expensive the better.

DDR2 memory would hold back some serious bandwith that would otherwise be utilised by games in a way to reduce stuttering

Don't be naive biggrin.gif. Here's something that would trump your current card by a mile - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102908

The GPU has DDR3 if that matters. How much of a performance boost would I get with that card?

Huge. There's quite a difference difference between DDR3 and DDR5 memory.
