Lag during gaming, RAM issue?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
This is kinda a mixed question, not sure if this is the best place for it.

I have inconsistant lag while plaing FEAR. It comes and goes at differnt spots
during the game. Seems to be more up and down movements with the mouse then left to right. Wierd eh?

I just installed new corsair ram, 3-4-4-8 steppings, have a new logiteck mx610 laser mouse and about a month ago installed a xfx 6600gt graphics card. Prior to putting these new components in I was running a 6600td vid card, a mixed gig of ram and a optical mouse, and playing the game with no lag. You would think with the better ram and vid card it wouldnt be an issue, but it is.

Would tightening the timings help this? Anyone else running this mouse for gaming? The graphics are better with the new vid card, but i backed off some of the settings to see if it helped, but it didn't.

Thanks
Tobias

You are using Corsair TWINX1024-3200C2, C2 stands for Cas Latency 2.

You should have it set at 2 for faster/lower Cas latency.

What are the default SPD timings on the ram? you can check it with CPu-z.

I recomend you set it to the Stock SPD and run your ram on a divider if your overclocking.

The default timings from Everest are 3-4-4-8. I was hoping
that I wouldn't have to mess around with it, but it looks like I have to.
Im just afriad that I will have to mess with the voltages and other adjustments
and screw something up. Im not overclocking my system. Because of my houses
heating system the ambient temp is higher then other houses when the heat is on. I idle around 37-40c and under load 48-50c. I know that temp is ok, but from experience, as soon as i overclock it jumps up. I have overclocked my system using the software overclock my ASUS board came with. 2.8Ghz is fast enough to run the games so why overclock. I want better performance so that is why i bought new ram, but it looks like I gotta adjust that.
Thanks

This sounds like a drivers issue. Have you checked for a different driver and used that? It may just be that your drivers are outdated, or causing conflict with the game.

That's what I was thinking too. Doesn't sound like a timing or other RAM issue.


My first thought was drivers. You switched video cards, did you clean off the old drivers? They could be causing conflict and thus, the lag.

Well I went from a Leadtek nVidia 6600td to a XFX nVidia 6600gt. When I first
installed the new card, my computer booted like nothing changed. Even tho they
are diff manufactures, its would still be nVidia drivers right? I did dl updated drivers for my new card and installed them, but didnt clean out the old drivers.
I didn't even think about driver conflicts. The conflict would show up in the device manager right?

Not really. You need to run Driver Cleaner and then install the fresh set of drivers.
Also, i find it helps to run DC more than once prior to fresh install.

Yep, use the latest forceware drivers from nvidia. Just clean out your old drivers and then re-install. Also, use DriverCleaner3 to remove any remnants prior to re-installing.
