I have already disabled both my wireless card and my onboard nic both show the same.

Those aren't the only things that you can disable. There's a ton of things in device manager. Also check the drivers for your graphic cards. In the past I've read of those giving the same issues you are experiencing. The website is pretty straight forward with info. How long has this been happening? Did you do something to your PC before this started happening. That can be new hardware or upgrading drivers etc.

I have noticed it for a while I can't remember if it happened on Windows 7, but I just thought it was YouTube and everyone got it.

Try other video sites to see if you get a stutter. How are does your videos look locally on your PC? Have you tied different browsers since this has been happening [Chrome\Firefox\IE - etc]? You can also try HTML5 to view youtube videos if you want to test it out. -" https://www.youtube.com/html5 "- You will have to find the main cause or causes of latency.

Alright so I’ve ran more test for those wondering if the Hex cores are worth it for gaming. In this test I’ve overclocked my GTX 670 2GB 2-Way SLI to 966Mhz which boost up to 1241Mhz to take on the Star Swarm Stress Test. It was recently updated on Steam. So it’s a pretty decent GPU overclock. I’m comparing my X5660 @ 3.2Ghz-DDR3-1333Mhz and 4.6Ghz-DDR3-1600Mhz. The first two test were ran using only the Benchmark Tool\Stress Test and I did not run my personal tests. However, I did perform my Real Time Benchmarks along with the Star Swarm Benchmark Tool in the last test [4.6Ghz-1600Mhz].

3.2Ghz DDR3-1333Mhz Results:
The X5660 @ 3.2Ghz & overclocked GTX 670s with the Extreme Preset appears to playable. When there are a lot of things happening on the screen the game simply drops the frame rate sharply. You can be at 30-40fps and the next second you are rapidly dropping to 10fps; even worse 3 fps. It seemed like a slow motion scene in the Matrix. I was using the benchmark tool so I’m guessing the frame times were near the 180ms-200ms mark. This could simply be a performance issue with the GTX 670 2GB limitation and specs. This benchmark is definitely demanding and should bring most cards to their knees.

4.6Ghz DDR3-1600Mhz Results:
Now to lift any bottlenecking I’ve OC’d my CPU. Anyone running 3.8Ghz Hex-Core and higher should have no major bottlenecks. I also run my CPU overclocked to 4.6Ghz because it only requires 1.36vCore which is safe as it gets with higher overclocks. With all of that being said this Benchmark Tool does rely on a decently clocked Intel CPU or AMDs APU to even it up with better results. I’m comparing the Extreme - Follow @ 1920x1080 results. If you look at the comparisons above you’ll see some pretty interesting results. The most obviously being that the Extreme - Follow @ 1920x1080presets showed an increase of 13fps. From 26fps [3.2Ghz] to 39fps [4.6Ghz]. That’s actually really good. That’s a 50% increase! The frames per second aren’t the only tell-tale. If you take a look at the frames that were actually captured, you’ll a huge increase of around 50% as well. The CPU can keep up with the GPU which allows for more frames to be captured during the benchmark. Which means you’ll have a more pleasant experience while playing. The frame time was a very good as well [25.9ms]. The GTX 670 2GB reference still suffered from the extremely high Frame times. My highest was 140ms which knocked my frames down to 5fps. So as I said above anyone running 3.8Ghz or higher Hex-cores shouldn’t really have any bottleneck issues. With that being said this benchmark is rough on graphic cards. I personally prefer to post results from actual gameplay. However, this will do for now. Feel free to compare your GPU scores and CPU speed.

I've also posted some more Titanfall Beta gameplay on my Youtube page. Check it out. It's a pretty decent game.




I was on Twitter recently and notice a post from Asus. The post spoke about their “RealBench V2 Leaderboard”. I thought I’d give it a shot and compare it to the number 1 leader in the world. I did even better; I uploaded my score to Asus website. The number 1 ranked user is running an i7-3960X @ 5.3Ghz-DDR3-2400Mhz and a GTX 780 Ti. Here are the results and comparisons to my X5660.

i7-3930K @ 5.3Ghz-DDR3-2400Mhz + GTX 780 Ti = 111001 [+26%]
Xeon X5660 @ 4.8Ghz-DDR3-1670Mhz + GTX 670 2GB Reference 2-Way SLI = 87926 [0.0%]

Being that my Gaming Rig is dated [6 year platform], it’s only 26% slower than the i7-3930K highly overclocked with faster RAM and faster Overclocked GPUs. According to Realbench v2 if I were to upgrade my build to the X79 platform with a highly 5.3Ghz OC CPU, faster 2400Mhz RAM and a pair of highly clocked GPUs I would only gain 26% of performance. In my opinion this is definitely not worth the price of upgrading. I would come off cheaper by keeping my current platform, adding faster RAM and GPU better than the GTX 670 2GB reference models. I’ll be sure to upload my results whenever I upgrade my GPUs. As of right now being within 26% is good enough for me to keep supporting my current platform. I’m waiting to see what Haswell-E will bring in terms of performance.

Kana-Maru, have you ever had any stability issues with your 5660? My 5650 runs everything fine but every now and then it has boot problems with Windows 8.1. Windows will "auto repair" and the BIOS will revert back to stock speeds. I've had all the voltages set to auto, and LLC/vdroop set to the first step. I thought the vdroop might help but no.

Ram is set on 1600/1667 mhz. CPU I've had on 22 X 160/166. Most everything else is on auto or the lowest multiple available. What are your thoughts?

I apologize if I'm hijacking this thread again for tech support.

BTW love titanfall.

It's not problem at all man. Anyone can feel free to post their questions if they need help, want to brag or anything. I don't care. I don't mind helping either. Tech support is what I do most of the time anyways. Actually all of the time. thumb.gif Check out my latest Titanfall video I uploaded. I really liked the Beta a lot. It was much better than most generic shooters I play today.

To answer your question........no I haven't had any issues with my X5660 CPU while running at stock. You'll also want to leave your LLC\Vdroop set at Normal if that's a option for you.

Have you made sure your memory and other hardware components are working fine? You might want to stress test at stock settings to ensure nothing else could be causing issues. Try setting your RAM to1333Mhz and test it out. 1333

I'm sure there are. It'll just cost you around $90-$120 I bet.

To answer your question........no I haven't had any issues with my X5660 CPU while running at stock. You'll also want to leave your LLC\Vdroop set at Normal if that's a option for you. The CPU only needs 1.14v to operate with a full load and the peak should be no higher than 1.18v with Auto voltages.

Have you made sure your memory and other hardware components are working fine? You might want to stress test at stock settings to ensure nothing else could be causing issues. Try setting your RAM to1333Mhz and test it out. 1333

I should have clarified a little. I've had zero problems at stock speeds, just when I try to OC it I have it hang on windows boot every now and then. I only tried the vdroop while it was overclocked. The only reason I kept it overclocked was Assassin's Creed 4. It's the only thing I've noticed that needed a higher clock speed to run well. Finished that last night though. smile.gif Everything else runs great at stock. It's also running at 26C/.912V right now. Gotta love that!
