Wierd Crysis issues, definatly processor related

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay, here's the dilemma:

I have an ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2, 8gb ram [overkill I know] Vista x64, ASUS Maximus Formula MB with stock BIOS [cause they have lower temps and still support my processor] and an Intel dual core processor E2140 stock speed at 1.6 GHz clocked at 2.62 [until I save up $300 for the new quadcore intel finally released].

Now, I've played crysis a LONG way through the storyline, and I'm currently at the part on the aircraft carrier fighting the big quadruped thing. I've played the game on high settings with motion blur off and getting seamless gameplay up until now. One processor core bottoms out and the other is at like 17% and my FPS dives into the floor [like < 1FPS at times]. until I get my new processor, is overclocking my dual core to 3 GHz a solution [I was also planning on dropping my multiplier from 8 to like 6 and upping my FSB when I hit 3 GHz]? I've so far I've pushed it to 2.8, but no farther [just a tad afraid xD ]

any comments / criticism? good idea / bad idea?

thanks,

No AA set, right? Crysis patched, which drivers, X2 not running hot, increased the fanspeed yet?

OC'ing the X2 will benefit your gameplay more than oc'ing that cute little proc.

Some accidental change on the nVidia control panel perhaps?
