4930k vs CS:GO

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey,


Basically I got a pretty quick computer, that runs most things really well, but strangely CS:GO runs quite poor, anywhere between 60 to 300 fps (locked limit) but I realised I pretty much only play CS:GO, now my system is super stable and due to being water cooled it never really gets past 55 - 60c, but it don't run CS well, changing video settings seem to only have slightly voodoo effects to fps(IE they don't seem to change for the better or worst no matter what), and for the life of me I can't fiqure out why, I checked the cpu single threaded performance before I got my system last year and the 4930k wasn't bad, and I thought, hey 6 cores means it will be pretty future proof! but for the only game I play seriously its worst then my old computer that I gave to my dad.

so now I am thinking, if I turn off some of the cores would that allow me to over clock the remaining cores so I get better single threaded performance and maybe get cs:go min fps higher (hopefully always over the 144 mark).

some details that could be helpful for you guys are:

I run my system at 4.2 ghz with turbo mode turned off at the moment, but that was just part of a test, before it was on 3.6 with turbo for all 6 scores at 4.2 (so it basically runs the same now...ha)

I use windows 8.1, tried windows 7 but no performance advantage and I kinda like 8.1 now

my futuremark score isn't that bad so I doubt its something wrong with my system, but for ref 17557 in firestrike

I tried messing with cs:go launch settings IE -high, threads, noaafonts and jaz, they seemed to do nothing impressive so I just got -novid now.

I run the game in native res on my Benq xl2411T, have tried lower res, but kinda paranoid about causing input lag.

BF4 runs pretty amazing...Dayz runs pretty crappy, but I think that's just due to game programming.

as of today I disabled crossfire for cs:go in catalyst...made no difference to fps (I know cs uses only 3 threads really and I don't think it can use my gpu at all really)

so my questions are

1. is my fps to be expected with my system? (cs:go between 60 - 300, well 60 is if I bring up the scoreboardso I don't know if this is the fiqure I should mention, in firefights I have seen it at 80, but its super noticeable as aim is destroyed by the none fluid movement of being below monitor refresh rate)

2. would disabling 2 of the 6 cores or turning off HT help me overclock cpu at all and improve fps?

3. Anything you guys think that could help?

I run cs go at a solid 120fps locked. No dips. Maxed out at 1080p. You have another issue going on. Is your computer in "High Performance" mode? There are some power saving settings in your control panel.

Running latest Omega drivers?

Try disabling a R9 290 so you're running just one

nice and icey cold...but it is liquid cooled too.
Also I noticed an odd thing, in cs:go when I set my fps_max to anything, so say 128 it actually displays 124 or 125, so if I set it 60 it only displays 56? it never used to do that!
but I tried deleting and reinstalling cs...same performance

Maybe your CPU isn't getting enough vcore and it's acting funny with CS:GO

hmm I never actually messed with the vcore, but wouldn't my system lock up or hang during prime or bf4 if it was vcore?

That's not necessarily the major indicator of starving vcore the the cpu. Other things cause be going wrong. Like I was getting weird Cinebench 11.5 results. In RO2: Rising Storm things weren't registering and my character would intermittently respond incorrectly to my input commands.

Just add a little more vcore and see if things smooth out. Maybe a little more to your DRAM as well.
