[SOLVED] Borderlands 2 stuttering on sig rig but not on 3 other machines on same network...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
***Solved: Updated BIOS from 1.2 to 2.1 on the Extreme6 GB. No more stutter. Cleaned up some issues I was having in CS:GO as well.

Should have done this long ago but I usually follow the "isn't broke don't fix it" theme with BIOS.

Hard to tell what the real issue was but it was something at MOBO level, not software.***



So, this was a problem when I had a single GTX570 in my sig rig. I now have a GTX680 FTW and a 650 Ti for dedicated PhysX.. Sig rig specs are below. I'm running 1080p on a single monitor with a second monitor running off the 650 just showing a desktop, problem is still the same from GTX570 to GTX680.

Basically, the game runs completely smooth, but here and there will get terribly stuttery and framerates dip considerably (I can stand still, look back and forth with the mouse at certain areas and it's choppy across those areas, then it goes away after 5-10 seconds) and is smooth again. It seems to be areas where you're moving through to a newe expanse on the map.

My secondary machine runs it, completely maxed out including PhysX High, no choppy sections, with 3570K @ 4.0, GTX560 Ti SLI.
I have two other machines that run it maxed except Medium PhysX, same res, without the choppiness. One is all AMD (X6@4.0), the other is another 3570K with a 7850.

I've tried different NV drivers, no change. New LAN driver, no change. Pulled the Extreme6's bundled X-Fi card, no change. Lowering Video settings doesn't help either, it still stutters temporarily here and there.

Anyone have an idea? I'm almost wondering if it's somehow disk reading issues, except that I can boot off of another drive on the SATA2 controller in the same machine, which is on RAID instead of AHCI, and it has the same dang problem.

PS: I can run Crysis 3 and other games without a problem on sig rig.

Maybe try disabling hyperthreading for a quick test?
