post #11 of 41
Thread Starter 
lol ok so if its not a driver issue then it must be a cpu bottleneck casue no matter how high i put graphics in bf3 i get 70-90 fps average if thats the case would i be better off with one 7890 overclocked? is there anything i can do i really wanted 120 fps ....

Yeah, the Armored kill maps are the best ones for testing as they also load up more vRAM. Close Quarters was rubbish for this, I still think the regular game is the best part of it all thumb.gif

Wow really? That's crazy! I've never heard of a 2500k bottlenecking..
I assume you have SP1 installed, have you tried going back to defaults on the CPU overclock and GPU's (if they are) to see how it runs then. It may just be some setting that BF3 doesn't like.

yeah BF3 multiplayer is CPU hungry. your athlon ii x4 is a huge bottleneck for BF3 multiplayer. you need a core i5 2500k at 4.5 Ghz to max out the usage in HD 7950 CF in BF3 multiplayer.
