Most of my opinions on this are from what people have posted in this thread (kinda long) - http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1689589

PS - You'll probably get a lot more answers if you look and ask around about this (Z77+water cooling) in the water cooling section.

Thanks for the link. Damn...seems like maybe I should have gone with a SB.

NP! Despite Ivy running warmer, it still gives off less heat giving you better internal temps, so I wouldn't have any regrets about not going Sandy. Sure, you probably won't hit 5.0, you don't need to get that high to equal SB 5.0. You made the right choice imo smile.gif

PS Temperature ≠ Heat

I set the cpu fan in "automatic" mode with level 9 at 60°celsius, it's ok ??
The power fan (rear outtake) doesn't appear in the bios, it's full on ?
Apart from that, my only problem is to run my ddr3 ocz 1600 cl7 on specs....when i set 1600 Mhz pc doesn't boot and i had to reboot few times before being able to change in bios....how can i load default setting if i have serious problem to enter bios ??
Thanks !!

Has anyone had any luck with BF3 and the latest update of MVP? I still get stuttering and overall worse gameplay from having it installed.

Really ?
BF3 is the one game where I really found MVP to help. Can you post the resolution and settings you are using?
For me its butter smooth at 1920x1080 everything enabled + ultra, FXAA only, in game vsync enabled, and VirtuMVP D-mode with Virtual vsync. I get no tearing and can definitely see a big improvement in responsiveness (60hz monitor with 2ms response time by the way). My on screen FPS with virtu is in the 80-120 range (I have FPS target set to 120 to prevent over exertion on the card as well). Crysis 2 was pretty good too with virtual vsync, but has a lower 50-80 on screen FPS, still no tearing or stuttering. I tried it in CS:GO (not officially supported) and get microstutter there with VirtVSync (no tearing though tongue.gif). I think its a promising technology, but needs more refining on the software side particularly. Would like to see more games supported for Hyperformance.

The stuttering is normal. When Virtual VSYNC detects a corrupt frame or predicts it, it just replaces it with the last good frame. That is the stuttering explained.

 

It isn't really stuttering.

 

I suggest you enable vsync instead and lock it to 60FPS, and use hyperformance to have a little boost to compensate.

 

I would say it's exactly doing what it's supposed to do ;)

 

I found Virtual VSync extremely useful watching movies in Windows Media Player or VLC Media Player. It removed the excessive tearing.

I have a Thermalright HR-05 chipset cooler that I used on my last build. Should I just install it or have most people gotten the most out of their CPU's without aftermarket cooling of the chipset?

I suggest you get a fan to blow on the MOSFET heatsinks. Or buy the Thermalright MOSFET heatsinks. But having a fan blowing on the mosfets will help a lot.

Virtu Vsync does NOT do prediction, you are confusing its function with hyperformance, and should not create any stutter that wasn't already there. Its job is solely to:
Quote:
Making sure the last fully rendered frame is shown, without tying the CPU, display and input down to 60 Hz (or the refresh rate of your display) and increasing responsiveness.
. This means it will let the CPU, input devices and GPU work to their full potential (removing the 60FPS cap of vsync).

Also, this isnt really meant for videos, if you are getting tearing there you need better decoders / players (try media player classic's built in stuff with D3D fullscreen)
