I walk the same road as neo926!

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hey guys i have the same problem as Neo926's thread (for those of you who dont know, he has a problem with his pc where he has low fps and stutters i think)

anyways, i have had this problem since i built this computer.

along the way i have swapped video cards, swapped XP for Vista then back to XP

I have reformatted more times than i can count on my fingers.

I bought a more powerful psu for my system.


My setup is

AM2 X2 3800+
Gigabyte M61P-S3
2 GB Patriot Signature DDR2800
X1950XT Sapphire

on counter strike source, i am lucky to get over 45 fps in any given server with any given players. when i adjust my video settings to high and low, there is no change in fps, not one!!

All my games stutter, even age of empires 3 and star wars empire at war. also star wars galaxies, half life 2, day of defeat source, any game you name it!!

Where i feel my problem lies is the bios settings. this is my first build, and i dont know alot of the settings in the bios. i have CnQ disabled, I made sure my ram speed was right, but didnt check the timings since i no crap about em!


anyways, sorry to bother, but I really need help on this!! if anyone wants to do a remote assistance thing (where you take control of my pc wirelessly) just let me know, i am really desperate!! just email me or msn message me at solidzdawg@hotmail.com

thanks guys, And by the way, i saw all the support you gave to neo, That is by far the best i have seen! I am also registered at gamingforums.com
guru3d.com

and steampowered.com and nothing comes close to you guys!!

I had this problem myself back a little while. My Cpu was bottlenecking my GPU. I didn't have my CPU OCed at the time, but after I kicked it up to 2.5, all of the stuttering problems went away.
'bout time.

Sounds like you have the same problem I did.

Bump up your northbridge voltage...
Bump up your PCI-e voltage...
Increase PCI-e frequency to 110mhz...

I don't think you need to do all of them, so try one at a time.

Try overclocking your CPU? If that raises the fps, then you have a bottleneck.

i did Fykx suggestions, and increased pci e frequency to 104 i think. i forgot you said 110, ill try it now.

as for northbridge voltage, i dont know where i can find that, and how much to increase it too once i do find it. any more insight into that?

also how much should i increase pci e voltage? is there something i need to know so i dont fry anything?

Ok guys another update!

every thing is running a little tiny bit better, nothing great but better.

still when i get into gunfights my fps drops into the low 40's which isnt right i dont think given my specs.

i also made the pci e frequency 110. my cpu i put at 210

One question i have though, there is an option in my bios about cpu cycle ratio or somthing, its on auto right now, but should it be on 5x 7x 10x or something like that??

thanks guys!

ok so everything i have done so far, has raised my fps in some games...

in css its alittle more stable, but still drops to 40's which i dont like lol.

in fear it is horrible for some reason, never been worse.

for age 3 it has never been better, about a good 70 + fps with dips to 50 but oh well..

but the big thing is, is that all these games stutter!! it is so annoying, it doesnt matter if i get good fps or not, it stutters!

Solid, anything in your bios related to PEG link settings? I told Neo to change the PEG Link Mode to "faster", PEG Root Control to "Auto" and PEG Buffer Length to "short" but honestly Asus is the one that came up with the "PEG" so I'm not sure if these are included in the gigabyte bios.
