My computer sucks, faith in gaming LOST!

post #1 of 68
Thread Starter 
I have made couple threads here about how bad my computer is working

My last conclusion now is just my CPU is just too bad to run games at high-ultra or even some on medium, and i don't mean new games. But some games like Most Wanted was bad, and some games work well like titanfall. My computer has costed 1,100e give or take. I can run World of Wacraft at high settings. I dont really want to spend more money on PC but im strongly thinking buying hole new motherboard and Intel processor. My experiance with this computer has been nightmare overall, had more than 6 Bsods in 1 day, my computer is temperature is way too high, even i have 4 extra coolers, and my ram usage is always over 50%. My rammap is using 35% unknown recourses alltime, reinstalled my windows but didnt help, no viruses.

I work as IT-expert / computer sience or what you call it in english, anyway im deffinetly not bad with computers, this isnt my first computer iv build but deffinetly will be the last! maybe il change my carrieer to be a chief or start repair cars smile.gif . If you had time to read this, i thank you! hope anyone else has experiance like this!

Always been Computer fanboy, maybe i should buy a console and play Call of Duty with bloody tears on my eyes

My specs:
- GIGABYTE GTX760 2GB GDDR5
- ZALMAN Z9 U3 3x120MM FAN CONTROL
- AMD FX-8320 8-CORE 3.5G 16M AM3+ 125W
- ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+
- Maxcube Arsenal 900W 80PLUS Silver ATX 2.3
- G.Skill Ripjaws X 8GB (2x4GB) 1600mhz
- Thermalright HR-02 Macho rev.a
- My harddrive isnt anything i should mention about, now when in typing this thread, im going to run harddrive check at home if its broken.

Your power supply seems really fishy. Maybe it is causing your problems?

Most Wanted is the worst optimised NFS for PC that ever existed. I am sorry to say but you are not going to get much out of that game at all, my system holds it at about 50 FPS on the newest update but even friends of mine who have the I7 4770k and a 770 are getting the same as me or 5-15 fps better.
EDIT: Also, I see a bad PSU?

Rather than getting completely mad at it, take it step by step and post up about each thing.
With a computer you are putting completely different parts from (typicall) completely different brands together.
Some problems show up on day 1, others a few days, weeks or months down the road.


1. Maybe try and post a S/s of Speccy showing us your temps?
2. When was the last time you did a fresh install of your OS?
3. Most wanted can't be played at Max settings on a 760.

God, i had 4yrs old cheapest chinese PSU on internet "750w", And everyone said upgrade ur PSU. So i bought that cause was on 50% discount like 4 weeks ago, there was a small difference. I don't see anything fishy with that PSU expect its chinese and it can blow up after some months of use. Its actualy pretty powerful for 50e PSU.

My CPU temps are too high to overclock, people had 40c even when gaming with stock cooler, im having 52-59c with that. GPU 60-72. Most wanted was just example, maybe i feel little better now, but there are many other games that perform bad, i actualy bought computer to play wow better. I'm having 45fps- with LOW setting in raids, thats actualy why i quited WOW, only game i can play perfectly is League and somewhat Diablo 3

Neo, can you explain me how that PSU is bad, i did research on internet before i bought it and it performed pretty well

I'm kinda confused how you could be an "IT-expert" and still buy a power-supply while willing knowing this.

That PSU was just so cheap, and my last PSU was nuclear bomb falling from sky, this one is just little highter altitude and falling slower. I bought it to see if my problem is in my PSU, nothing really changed.

Why would you get a psu that you know will fail at some point instead of getting something good in the first place?
The psu is a component where you DO NOT buy cheap ones.

There is nothing wrong with your cpu. It is great for running games. I run crysis 3 at very high 1080p with no AA and BF4 ultra 1080p with no AA. older games work 100's as well. Your air cooler could have a bad mount. Causing your temps to be too high. Also you could be throttling. FX has two different temps you need to look out for. "Socket" and "Package". CPU temps reported by AI suite are actually socket temps and are not the actual temperature of the die. FX has a maximum core "package" temp of 72C and ASUS boards tend to throttle at 70C "socket" temp. You should switch all power saving modes in the BIOS off. That way your CPU won't downclock when under light loads or idle. About RAM usage 8GB's should be enough. However with games like BF4 using 10GB's when at ultra detail you should think about maybe 16.

The thing is you should not rage and give up the second something goes wrong. There are many people out there who have made the FX CPU's work. There is nothing wrong with it. If you want the best tips and advice for your set up. Pop into the Vishera Owners club. Check in my sig. All the AMD FX veterans hang out there and we will be more than able to assist you. The reason why people are worried about your power supply is it is produced by a brand that we have never heard of. And for many of us that is where the first alarm bells start rining for us. It is of the UTMOST importance to not skimp on a power supply. Because if one goes bad it will most likely take youre whole system with it. Wattage is also NOT the most important fact! Rather take a smaller name brand high quality supply from brands such as Antec, CoolerMaster, Corsair or Seasonic and the likes. Because then you know that you are getting the best quality for your system. In PSU's usually quality>Output.
