Thanks for your input.

In the post above yours, I mentioned I just got a new cooler.

Also, and I don’t know if it matters, but the mobo I purchased is a Gaming 4, not the Extreme 4.

I have to check my low % framerates but I think I am getting very decent rates on the old 3770K such that it might make the 9600k unnecessary at this point, as BF V is the most CPU intensive thing I do usually.

BTW, I have read a lot of your posts in the Z390 threads

I just wanted to circle back and thank everyone for their input.

I installed the 2133 memory and manually set it to the XMS settings, at 1.65V, also on the webpage.

It took a couple of times to boot to Windows but seems to be fine now.

I lowered my settings in Battlefield V and it’s running well. I lowered them less for the frame rates and more so I can see the enemies, apparently that’s what a lot of people do?

I don’t know, it’s a shame, IMO, that you have a game that is so visually stunning, but if you can have enough hardware to run it with so much detail, that you suffer getting killed constantly because not only are you not seeing the enemy, but that the enemy is often running so low detail that they can see through what you perceive to be solid objects and get killed.

And I don’t even know a thing about what other means others are doing, like mods, hacks, etc.

Anyway, my next step is to install the new CPU cooler. I’m running at 4.5 ghz, hottest it gets is 73C on one core, others are a couple degrees below that.

Other than bragging rights, does it make sense to run the clock higher? Would it actually improve the gaming experience, or is it just to say it’s running faster?

Again, thank you all, you’ve been a big help.

Depends on how it's running now.
If it's running 100% stock, yes overclocking will help.
If it's running z390 stock where MCE and more TDP is allowed by default, no overclocking won't get you as much as it would over stock.
BF5 is hard enough on the CPU to be able to max out 6 threads easily so overclocking at the very least will improve minimums as always. 4.5ghz isn't much for that CPU, should be able to OC to 4.7/4.8 without too much fuss. Or you could just enable MCE.
I had issues overclocking a 4790k with a 212 Evo without AVX, once you allow MCE I can imagine your thermals will be in the 80s when playing BF which isn't ideal.


And yeah, any competitive game you can think of is run on low settings to remove grass and improve framerate. Why on earth they picked that title for RTX is beyond me.

I think there’s some confusion, I’m not running the 9600k, it’s still in the box along with the mobo, I’m going to sell it and wait and see (Ryzen 3 and finances are driving this decision), so my comments were about the 3770K cpu.

Thank you.
