AMD PHENOM II 1090T 3.2GHZ Running FRAPS? - Page 2

Even if it is 5400RPM it doesnt matter, I use a 1TB Western Digital "Green" drive and it does just fine for Fraps. Full size 1920x1080 videos end up recording around 66MB/s, and WD Greens are able to write at 80MB/s or so. There isnt a need for 7200RPM as a recording drive. You could always use the 500GB 7200RPM as your main OS drive, since that would help with boot times as well as game loading times, then use the 2TB as a media drive and fraps drive.

Also; You can have fraps installed on your main drive with all your other programs, you just have to tell fraps to save to that hard drive.

Every 4GB of footage Fraps makes a new video file, this is why the frame spike happens every so often while recording. The faster the drive, the less noticeable/present this frame spike is. that doesn't always mean 7200 RPM but a 7200 RPM drive should help a bit... I think?

Checked the CPU usage when fraps was recording, only around 50% average, and physical memory averaged only 35%, pretty sure this is a HDD issue now
Thanks guys smile.gif

when i use to record wit fraps i notived once i hit record it would drop FPS like madd.. what i did to fix it was, Look at how much FPS you get when just playing the game, then adjust fraps in the options to your selected frame rate, it may have to be lower then what you have with out fraps running.. it worked for me.. hope it helps

I've recently bought a new PC setup and tried to record World Of Warcraft with Fraps on it. Everything seems to run fine at around 30 fps with fraps running at full quality, but then every 6-15 seconds I get a lagg spike which drops my fps down to about 5.
I was just wondering if it could be anything to do with my CPU, or if any of you could reccommend what it might be? My setup is as follows:
ASUS M4A87TD EVO MOTHERBOARD
AMD PHENOM II 1090T 3.2GHZ
CORSAIR VENGEANCE 2X4GB DDR3
CAVIAR GREEN 2TB 64MB 7200 SAT
XFX HD6870 1GB GDDR5 GPU
NOVATECH POWERSTATION 600W MODULE
But yeah it runs WoW fine w/o the fraps, but I want to record some gameplay ofc, so any suggestions at all please guys? I know I only have 1 HDD to write to, and Fraps reccommends 2, but it shouldn't be that much of a problem should it?
(nothing has been overclocked on PC, and turning WoW gfx settings down don't change a thing)
Once again, sorry if it's in the wrong thread
Thanks smile.gif

cause what it hink happens with the lagg spike is.. that fraps wants to keep it running at lets say 60fps if you have it selected, and if your pc drops below the 60 i think itwas it would cause that lagg spike, i fixed it by playin around with fraps settings for how my fps it uses while recording'
