Does it drop below 60? Lolno.

well you sir either have a magic computer, or are simply not correctly interpreting your system performance.

im tired of trying to convince you, the rest of the world agrees with me, im not arguing the point any further. as previously stated here and elsewhere, the competitive sc2 community shares the same views I have expressed here in an attempt to educate people about sc2 performance issues.

thousands of high level sc2 players have come to these conclusions after exhaustive research. your 3770k, unless it has magic powers, even on water, *can* get dunked in 2v2s ladder maxed armies. I have no way of saying whether its ever happened to you, im not saying it has. all im saying is running around telling people it never does and is (I quote)

its not a nonsense rumor, its a fact. facts can be researched, do it yourself. everyone else using your cpu to play sc2, with heavy overclocks, is still seeing FPS drops in late game maxed situations.

I really didn't want to get back into this, but u should realise you can drop frames and still maintain an average framerate over 60, with minimums @ 30 fps. but of course you don't understand that. youll just assume cause some FPS counter says your over 60 all day you know whats going on.

I don't know why people try to defend these positions when 2 minutes of googling will reveal an endless supply of info to back up one side of this discussion.

Play Dayz and run around Cherno or Electro for a bit. You will absolutely see a drop below 60 fps, maybe even into the 30's.thumb.gif

My Q6600 didn't even have framerate problems, it would dip a little bit, but certainly not much. I seriously can't see where this is coming from, other than some over the top benchmark "custom games".

To maintain the simplicity of this thread, and answer the question right to the point. Understand that the higher the CPU overclock, the higher your minimum framerate will be. This translates to higher FPS overall - since there will be a lot less FPS dips. It's just how it works. The higher your CPU clock, the more you are taking your GPU out of any type of bottleneck situation. Thus leaving mostly everything up to the GPU and of course as a result increasing your overall average framerate because of the workload being done.

Just run Heaven Benchmark, and keep your GPU clocks the same. Change your CPU clocks from say 4.5GHz to 5.0GHz and look at the differences in your score. thumb.gif
