This will help run oblivion faster...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
heys guys, i just found on a bunch of other boards that people are having trouble running Oblivion on their comps when they overclock. i just found out today that it runs extremely better when you revert to your original settings. I know all of you are like "!!!Noeezzzzz!!!", but if you set some number on your CPU-Z profile higher than playing games that you got the CPU for....you have problems. My system runs at a constant 50 FPS which amazed me.... (medium is the autochoice for me). My stuff only cost like 500 bucks for everything cept hard drive for mine, off tigerdirect.com....So before you go out and spend your money on a video card....try reverting, might save you some money you can put
into something else, like, a jesus shaped piece of toast or something....

Not sure if I believe that one, unless their oc's are not stable. I've noticed myself that if your just a smidge too high on your oc, whether it's cpu or vid card, that performance can actually drop. I think alot of people don't stress test their oc's enough, to be really rock solid, 100% slammin on it cpu usage for days kind of stable. Some people absolutely max out their cpu or vid card oc, to the point where they can play a game for a couple hours, no artifacts although one tiny clock notch up causes a crash. But maybe stress test would fail after 12hrs, and they call it good since they can use it for awhile with no problems. To me, that's not stable. Stable to me is running prime95 + folding + whatever else I do usually on my rig, for 2 or 3 days or more and not getting a single prime error.

I just don't buy that a game would play worse on an oc'd rig, if that rig was actually proven to be stably oc'd. On an unstable oc'd rig, pushed a hair farther than it should have been, then ya I could believe it.
