It also happens to my A10-5800K + GTX 750 Ti, when the camera view is on the grass, the GPU usage drops to ~60% and CPU usage goes up to ~99%. It happens when I use HIGH System Spec or VERY HIGH System Spec

Lowering down to MEDIUM System Spec increases performance, GPU usage returns to ~99% and CPU usage is ~70%. If you manually set the graphic detail, I think it's the Object Quality that causes it.

There have been quite a few areas (all outdoor with dense foliage) that the CPU has struggled with and been completely maxed out 100%, another example of it is when you go outdoors to where there are lots of trains buried in the grass when your nanosuit has been blocked and you meet the aliens for the first time (I forget their name lol... just remembered the ceph). Changing through all medium to all high/very high makes no difference to the framerate and I'm using an R9 290 to deal with the graphics. I'm certain with more cores this issue would be sorted.

Yeah, that's it

There is a large open field with grass swaying and you need to hide behind wrecked trains because there is a tower with a long-range cannon

Firstly thanks for the info about object detail, gave me something else to play with during the following testing. thumb.gif

I have ran more Crysis 3 tests today with both my rigs, one is X58 platform with 6C/12T using only a single R9 290 (Xfire disabled) @ 1000MHz core clock, the other is the G3258 rig with single R9 290 @ same clocks.

The hex core rig was smooth as butter in the same areas where the G3258 rig struggled. The FPS was about 5-10fps quicker using the rig with more cores. The game for sure likes more cores in these areas where the dual struggles and clock for clock the hexa CPU is a lot slower.

Turning object detail down to medium did help the G3258 machine a little specifically in the area you mentioned but made little to no difference in other areas where the framerate was getting choppy. The gameplay experience was night and day between the two systems with regards to smooth framerates.

Hey guys, just registered to ask this question:

Did I get bad G3258 for OC or am I missing something?

Gigabyte GA-Z87M-D3H updated to f11b bios
Not sure the exact ram but its Corsair 1600
Zalman CNPS10X HSF

I need to do one more test but this is all I can get so far:

3.8 ghz at 1.15v. Temps are fine but at 3.9 ghz I cant boot into windows. I've raised voltage all the way up to 1.3v but still cant boot at 3.9 ghz.

I need to test if 3.8 ghz works at stock voltage, or whatever auto is, I guess thats not really stock?

Is it worth it to try a different G3258 or could it perhaps be my mobo that is limiting me? Or am I doing something else wrong?

Welcome!

Wow that's really odd, I haven't heard of a single chip that couldn't do 4GHz.
In your bios is there a way how to monitor your voltages to see if they''re running at the voltage you set?
And another thing is your Input or Eventual Voltage, what are they set to? I believe you might need to raise them slightly if they're too low, they can help you boot into Windows, and there's a couple more voltage settings including uncore.

I can point you to this guide, it's packed with information!

Sure.

I've got quite a few games to test and likely more, on my list currently there's:
League of Legends
TERA
Minecraft
Guild Wars 2 (More comprehensive)
ArcheAge

My other Borderlands 2 video uploaded awhile ago, I'll post it when I can.

thanks for the guide. I tried to follow some of it and was able to do a little better by using these settings:

VRIN: normal
VRIN override: 1.73
Vcore: 1.225
Ring: 1.125
Uncore Freq 39

This allowed me to get up to 4.4 ghz. I went to 4.5 with Vcore at 1.25v but then backed off to hopefully lower temps a tiny bit and have less fan noise. I think I'll go back to 4.5 ghz, its a nice number. smile.gif

Strangely, when I change my cpu fan from normal to silent in the bios, the temps dont go up at all but it is much quieter.

thanks for the help

Stock cooler, switching to the cooler I had on the Phenom II after I get my paste.

Thx for the new borderlands video smile.gif

About cooling when u get it on this pentium beast try to reach something like this cuz it's VERY easy with custom cooling, here some reference, we r on the club of performance/U$S so more MHZ without effort sounds quite cool to me.
