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.

Pretty much everything on Ultra with some AA and shadow settings turned down running at 1680X1050. I never enable VSYNC, to taxing for minimal if any percievable gain. Id rather have my frames drop and signal me to turn down settings than have something attempt to give me performance that just isnt there. Ill give it another go if they update again but its still to frustrating to get running right now.

I'm a bit confused on exactly what you are looking to get out of Virtu. Are you looking to reduce tearing, or just purely increase your FPS? Also I dont think you are fully grasping what vsync does, its not going to add 'fake' performance, its actually limiting your GPU's performance to 60/30FPS in order to ensure screen tearing doesnt occur. Give this article a read if you want to understand virtu better http://www.anandtech.com/show/5728/intel-z77-panther-point-chipset-and-motherboard-preview-asrock-asus-gigabyte-msi-ecs-and-biostar/2

I used twist ties to hold the fan to the video card, being careful not to ground anything obviously. Worked like a charm and is still working. Yes it is ghetto but i needed to get that 5804 graphics score in 3dmark to beat lilscrappy smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif
lol i was so upset when you beat me too. i got the score i did by a cold front as well.
id have to do a full custom loop in order to keep temps low enough to be stable any higher.
we will see when the 660Ti comes out if that's going to be your next card thumb.gif

are your motherboard heatsinks not doing the job well enough that you need aftermarket sinks?

I haven't OC'd my board yet (waiting on one last part for my water loop). I'm just trying to plan for the ability to get a max OC and once I have my loop in there I won't be able to install chipset heatsinks after the fact.

Yeah scrappy I will most likely get that card. Us mid range guys usually stick to what is affordable smile.gif On top of that im about 3k into this engine build. The engine is going into a 1st gen body style dodge neon(1995-99). Im not ricing it out with mods and going crazy with a spray bomb painting every inch of the interior. The whole car will look stock unless I get aftermarket rims next spring. The paint currently looks like garbage and it needs body work so thats gonna get done hopefully this fall after I have the motor running right. Im hoping when its said and done, it will be a 12 second daily driver lol. (12 on slicks and lots of boost).
It is just a kind of fun project I chose to do instead of buying a new car for more than 5 times what Im putting into the car.
It will get good gas mileage and be fast for a street car, thats all I want to accomplish.

I was under the impression that Virtu was supposed to essentially stabalize my average FPS, in turn, making for a more 'playable' experience. I was deifinatley not expecting miracles in terms of FPS boost, but Im getting the exact opposite, it ruins my experience by making the game unplayable. I do not have any tearing aside from the usual hiccup(I know Ive maxed out my VRAM but Im a graphics junkie biggrin.gif) so vsync isnt a deal breaker either. Im not trying to hate on Virtu because it is a brilliant concept and will certainly bridge the gap for people with medium spec rigs to get that next step in performance and those with power hungry rigs to help curb their power consumption. However, atleast for me, for whatever reason its not ready, and my rig isnt anything special either.

sweet hopefully we will have some good competition going soon thumb.gif
3k and you're still workin on the crank? bigeyedsmiley.png
i hope you've got other goodies for your bottom end lol
and you should leave the car completely stock it would be a great sleeper.
make those little reckless fast and furious pricks on the road crap their pants
when they get passed in the car mommy and daddy bought them.
i would still cleanup the look paint and body wise.
its not rice as long as you keep your car clean. kinda like some people's builds on here. doh.gif
reminds me of under glow every time i see some neon LEDs in a rig.
are you tuning it yourself too?

Yeah exactly. I have a ton of parts purchased for the motor that arent in it yet and a ton of parts for the car that I have not put on it yet. I just wanted to get the motor done first. The 3k is not just all in the bottom end. It will be a fun sleeper smile.gif. And I know exactly what you mean about some peoples builds on here.
Yes I am going to attempt to tune it myself. I do not have a dyno available but I will see how far I get without one.

Took awhile to figure out the new bios but I've finally OC my 3570 to 4.5ghz.
