Would 667mhz 5-5-5-15 memory...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Bottleneck a system with a AMD Phenom 9600 @ 2.3ghz and a GTS 250 @ normal specs? I've tried to fix this system for a while now to get over 100 fps constantly in CS:S, and the system ranges from 50 - 151, mostly in the 50 - 90 range. The system is playing the game with the lowest settings possible, including the best rated FPS config. These results seem very low for this system's specs. This low fps isn't only experienced in CS:S, as it happens in other games, like L4D2, etc.

I have seen a person with a AMD +4000, Nvidia 6800GS, and 1 GB of ram play this game with over 100 fps constantly w/o any fps configs.

I would like to see a system like that do that.

When I was running 667 mhz memory my system was fine. A steady 70+ fps in games that were similar to it.

Don't take this the wrong way but - that single core 4000 + 6800 did not play CSS with 100 FPS constantly. It just didn't.

But on topic, you may want to check your system for the TLB bug as I think it was present on the 9600 batch of processors. If the 'fix' is enabled it could be hindering peformance. (there was some debate about it via BIOS/MS Windows). I think HardwareCanucks ahs a big write-up on and a solution. Supposedly a MS update (for XP and Vista) re-enabled the TLB bug in windows even when it was turned off in the BIOS.


EDIT: TheOcelot beat me on the system... but we're both right! And no your memory isn't the issue.

You won't need any more than 60 unless you use a CRT.

Thanks to the people within the thread who helped me, as I found a program to disable the TLB bug.

Before the TLB bug fix, I would get 257 fps in the stress test.

After the fix, I get 411 fps in the stress test.

I was wondering if 411 fps in the stress test was normal? As I use 800x600 and the lowest settings possible, with a fps config. And this rig will be using a CRT.

I was also wondering if 1.8 ghz on the NB is a bottleneck? I don't know too much info on the nb so no harsh comments please if I am wrong.

No, the 1.8Ghz is what the Phenom I's were running. I believe it's HT 2.0 (generally stock at 1.8). You would be fine anywhere from 1.6-2.2. 1.8 is more than enough bandwidth for what you have going.

Glad you figured out the TLB Bug deal. It wrecked a lot of systems without fixing the fix.

Thnkas to everyone for the TLB fix. I disabled it through a program, as disabiling it through the BIOS wasn't enough.

The FPS boosted from 257 to about 411 in the stress test.

Valve's OB update to CS:S has also improved the fps by a great amount.

The fps went from 411 to 630 in the stress test, as multi core rendering is supported in this update.

Thanks to everyone for this fix, as the rig is now receiving the real frames it should be getting. +Rep to all who helped.

The frames ingame basically six-quad-tri-pled.
