Who wants to play with a newb? Level 5 but I'm learning... Played BF3 and BC2 so I'm not entirely new.

OCN server, there is one?

The human eye cannot detect anything faster than 60, why is 120 -144 necessary ? I understand why you might want 80, as you get some fluctuation depending on the situation but 120-144 is just punishing your rig for no discernible reason and why don't you have the option to overclock ? If it's a question of not knowing how, I'm certain if you posted a request for tips in the appropriate page, as this is an enthusiast forum, you would get numerous replies to help you out here.
Either way, if you're that tight for CPU performance, I can't see how closing Battlelog is really going to make enough of a difference to even bother.

this is a lie. the human eye can certainly distinguish between 60fps and 120fps. and it being necessary, go read the differences between gaming on a 120 or 144hz monitor and gaming on 60hz.

he didnt say he did not have the option to overclock. he said some people may not be able to overclock more than they already are. as far as closing battlelog, browsers can eat a lot of resources. imagine having 2 browsers open. its called getting every drop of performance you can.

If you're on the West coast in the USA, feel free to add me. (Jodiuh)

I'm no Dr, but I doubled my k/d ratio and SPM when I moved from 60hz/60fps to 120hz lightboost/120fps. It has easily been the coolest upgrade in all my years of gaming. I see enemies sooner, there is no blurring...I cannot express in words what a game changer it has been. But I'm SURE someone else will chime in with their lightboost experience soon to back up my claim.

I said some of us cannot OC further, meaning we are @ our chips thermal limits. Personally, I'm having a heck of a time getting my 4670K stable @ anything above 4.2 Ghz. I need 1.3 V for that, so I'm pretty sure that's where it will stay until 6/8 cores become more mainstream. Oh and Intel of course. AFAIK, even a 6/8 core AMD will perform worse than a modern Intel quad.

Closing Battlelog is just one of many tweaks that can be used to increase performance in this game. For those of us on high refresh rate monitors, adding a configuration file that limits max frames helps immensely. Doing those two things, closing services and programs, OCing RAM, running Windows 8, etc all help to give me the best experiences possible.

Edit: I see I got ninja'd by pc-ill!

I turned my refresh rate up to 120 from 100 on my monitor and turned off Battlelog after the game started. I didn't notice any difference, I still won MVP. biggrin.gif
I dunno...if you think it's helping you in some way, have fun and good luck but some of the best gamers I know are still playing on 60 Hz monitors. Although I don't see how it can hurt having it at 120. I think latency has a LOT more to do with how soon you're seeing your enemies than boosting your framerate but if you really believe it's making that much of a difference, I'm happy for you. thumb.gif

Your computer wouldn't do 120fps stable so obviously you won't see a difference between 100Hz and 120Hz (+ Lightboost because obviously that's what really makes the biggest difference).

I usually play BF 4 in 3-D although I my ASUS VG236H does not have lightboost. Still, I'm not sure it would make that much difference. Either you have a mind for tactics, good reflexes and you can play or you can't.

If you can't see more than 60 FPS, why did you have your monitor set to 100 hz? Are you getting 120 FPS 95% of the time?

As for Lightboost, a friend of mine put it this way...

"Going from 60 to 120 is like going from the moon to the stars. Going from 120 to 120 Lightboost is like going from the stars to the sun."

If you want an actual visual demo, look no further than this map...

http://www.testufo.com/#test=photo&photo=toronto-map.png&pps=960&pursuit=0&height=0

You can't read it can you? With Lighboost, the entire map is PERFECTLY readable.

And now BenQ has the Z monitors out that are even clearer!

I'm not sure why you feel the need to insinuate it's in my head or that I have no tactical skill...especially since your panel does not have lightboost.

The only thing you have to gain by disagreeing w/ me is the comfort in knowing that you have no reason to upgrade. You don't really wanna be THAT guy, do you?

Also, I see you have no mouse pad. I suppose those do nothing for you either? wink.gif

ANYWAYS...WHO'S PUMPED FOR NAVAL STRIKE?! Looks like we're finally getting some worthy DLC after the garbage that was China Rising and the recycled garbage that is Second Assault.

I guess ERGO Grip comes floating on the gun these days. Everytime I select it happens... lol
