got new mobo, wish me luck...tips to??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hey everyone here is my specs:

AMD Phenom II 1055T Six Core Processor 2.80ghz
-evga gtx 580 oc edition video card
-12gb ddr3 memory corsair 1333mhz
-windows 7 64 bit os
-cool master haf 922
-corsair 750w power supply with 80 plus
-22 inch benq led monitor

i just got the following
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16813131644

what i am a bit confused about is that since i am really into gaming and learning to overclock, i was looking at the mobo and there is a button that says oc (meaning overclock) if i press that how much speed will the cpu increase for example from 2.80ghz-3.3ghz? or is it better to do it from the bios?
secondly right now i have 12gb ddr3 corsair 1333mhz but do u think i should decrease it to 8gb-10gb?...i got 4 sticks 2 of them are 2gb and the other 2 are 4gb total of 12.

how can i show my fps when i am playin games...eg metro?
i know u can do it in crysis but that game is not really optimized and coded so i want to benchmark with metro..

lastly if i over clock for example from 2.80ghz-3.3ghz how many extra fps will i increase , i know i can go higher but i want to work my way up slowly..

thanks and other advice or tips would be appreciated

Hey Alvi,

download the software Fraps

from here you will be able to see your actual frames when you are playing.

thats a nice mobo

Most of the game has the option to Benachmark and adjust the settings according your specs, you will find the benchmark option inside the game.

Your FPS will increase significantly if you take out one of those 4GB DIMMs and run dual channel. Or better yet, buy new RAM. Why is this:
1. 3 DIMMS will not run triple channel. They won't run dual channel. They will run a mode called single channel/interleaved, which is much worse.
2. Your games will never use more than 8GB, many don't ever use more than 4GB
3. A new kit of RAM with adequate speed (i.e. 1600Mhz) and lower timings (much better on AMD) will perform much better.


I just realized you are running 2x4 + 2x2 which is in fact dual channel
But better memory with higher speed/lower timings can help with gaming performance, especially online gaming which needs as little latency for ping as possible.
Reducing your memory probably won't help, but it probably won't make anything wrose either because games are really not that RAM intensive.
