You need more ram, take a walk at the bf3 thread. even people with 4gb of ram have ram problems in this game.
The least of your problems in BF3 will be the gpu.
That's interesting, I may reroute my upgrade path because of this. Thanks a lot

Up the ram alil and you'll be fine for now. I'm running a i5 2500k with a 6870 and 16 gigs (I know overkill was just so cheap at the moment I couldn't help myself tongue.gif ) But with my 6870 I play on a 23" 1080 monitor everything on ultra just fine no lag very decent frames.

My 6870 almost maxed BF3.. So i assume a 6850 will do the same. There was one or two maps that ran terrible.. But this is when i had a E8500! tongue.gif

Uh I see you upgraded matt, hows the new i5 going?
You already started trying to OC it?
Seeing more better gpu performance?

I put it all together last night! The highest stable OC so far is @ 4.3GHz on stock voltage.. a multiplier of 44 makes it not boot tongue.gif
Fair to say i already have found and used the CLR_CMOS jumper a few times so far.. rolleyes.gif

Temps don't pass 60c at the moment either!

EDIT: I'm about to test BF3.. My graphics card drivers are playing up right now

May 2012, AMD Catalyst 12.4 drivers, MSI Z77a-gd65 + i3570k processor
Multi-Monitor – single vs. multiple video cards.
This has been discussed in other forum posts but it hasn’t really received a lot of attention.

When using a dedicated graphics card in multi-monitor mode; it will draw significantly more power than using 2 video cards with only 1 monitor attached. This is true for AMD & Nvidia solutions. What happens is that when 2+ monitors are being driven by one card; it is running the gpu at a higher frequency and running the memory at FULL speed.

In my case, I have a Asus Radeon HD 6850 / 1gb DDR5 memory.

Radeon => 2 monitors (1920x1200 + 1280x1024)
At idle => GPU 300 mhz / RAM 1100 Mhz (overclocked).

Radeon => 1 monitor (1920x1200)
At idle => GPU 100 mhz/ Ram 150 Mhz

Radeon => monitor 1 (1920x1200) + Ivybridge integrated Graphics => monitor 2 (1280x1024)
At idle => GPU 100mhz/Ram 150 mhz.

Since the discrete graphics draws a lot more power than integrated; you can see a 25+ watt decrease in power usage. This has been documented in other forums as I said but I’ve never heard of it until now!
It has to do with the way the driver’s run to prevent multi-monitor vsync tearing/artifacts and AMD/Nvidia’s solution is just to keep the graphics cards at full speed.

You’ll find that this is less of a problem for low speed cards (ie: radeon 5450 hardly makes a difference since it’s the ram that seems to remain significantly powered a full speed in idle).

I first noted this as a problem as I’m trying to drop case temperatures and noted that the video cooler was hot to the touch at idle!

So… If you have a sandybridge/ivybridge core with IGP. You now have a reason to use both. I don’t bother using Virtu MVP technology as I find that is still buggy at this time. Instead, I have IGP graphics turned on in bios and have 1 monitored plugged into my ATI card and another one to the IGP via my motherboard.

You will definitely get to at least 4.5 Ghz soon.

Funny you should mention my board.. I got 4.3GHz last night on stock voltage, now tonight I was playing COW WAW Zombies and it crashed. So i ran IBT and it crashed.. I ran IBT with a multi of 40 and it's fine now..

The whole UEFI bios confuses me... Well i get the multiplier bit, but the voltage section confuses me. I don't understand what sort of voltage if safe to apply either.. Intel state 1.52 which I know is way too much and WILL kill my board + CPU.

Eh well, i'll look at it when i have time.. 4GHz is fine for now... Not really a bottleneck anymore! tongue.gif

I don't get this idle clocks thingy... I have NEVER seen mine drop down. Is it because I use Afterburner and it pretty keeps the clocks that I'm overclocked at?
