FX8350 causing lag spikes in BF4??

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Right so my setup is:
FX8350 Not overclocked..
8gb 1600mhz
gtx660 2gb x2 (SLI)
750W PSU

When playing BF4 i settings at low. But still have huge lag spikes!

I Have done the whole unparking cores thing. But i notice Core #2 is maxing out playing the game always, they other 7 cores are just siting about 50%

I disabled 4 cores in bios and tried again and bam! the game runs smooth. All 4 cores runs about 90%

What does this mean is my chip fried? is my PSU not beefy enough?

PS im still using stock cooler if that means much

Could be that the 8350 is overheating with the stock cooler. Stock cooler isn't all that great. 8350 has no issues at all running BF4 at max settings.

I did think that. Also when i ran prime95 on it i was geting serious high temps. At the time i was only using core temp to read temps and was geting about 60-65C but i installed asus's cpu monitor and the temps were totaly diffrent. Its 20c higher on the asus program compared to core temp!!. I hope it didnt damage the chip.

And that is exactly why I always use multiple sources for reading temps.

If you can fit it, I highly recommend either a NH-D14 or Corsair h100i / cooler master seidon 240m. They can easily keep a 8350 cool and allow for a nice OC. If you're limited on space a 212 evo or corsair h80 can do the job too.

Almost anything is better than the stock cooler.

Your setup is almost identical to mine, except my CPU is OC'ed to 4.4GHz, I have 2133 9-11-11-31 memory, and I'm running a Hyper 212 Evo. I have big and inconsistent framerate drops in BF4, too. I'd be chugging along at 79FPS (vsync + frame limiter) and drop to the 40s for no apparent reason, regardless of detail level or the amount of action on screen. Never did nail down exactly where it was coming from. I ultimately just went back to BF3 for the better frame rate and more accurate netcode. If you find an answer, please let me know.

What kind of motherboard are you running? I'm on an Asus M5A99FX Pro R2.0. Part of me wonders if there's some weird and obscure driver issue that's causing this - most people don't seem to share the same problem. Then again, maybe it's just SLI. Disabling it has helped me in the past, but I haven't tried it recently.

What are you playing exactly when you notice this? Sure it's not just rubberbanding?

Nisrock, I am using the exact same mother board too, I only get these lag spikes in high demanding games like Crysis. its not actualy that bad on Crysis 3. I cant see it rubberbanding. I play COD4 and runs perfect.
starting to run out of idea's guys.

I cant understand why Core 2 always runs way ahead of the others. I have a feeling its my PSU not supporting the setup.

I have the same issue with an overclocked 8320 and a gtx 770. I have the h80i on my CPU so I have no heat issues at 4.5-4.7. I run into temp issues when I'm running 5.0.@1.5v or higher. Some games are meant to be played on AMD's parts perfectly, so why are there so many issues with the fx processors and games like bf4?

Do you also notice one of your cores is always a near 100% and the rest are way down??
