He's not getting CPU bottlenecks.
Regardless having a cpu with higher ipc and core speed will push up fps even when the system isn't CPU bound.
Okay. So I'm now updated to F50a - the latest update for my BIOS.
It appears I may have made some progress. My RAM now reads as follows...
EDIT: My FPS hasn't changed and if anything, my graphics seem worse?!
EDIT EDIT: It appears my Cinebench scores are poorer too!
How's the score with xmp disabled?
With it disabled the score improves a little, but the RAM has reverted back to the 1066hz (or there abouts)...
FPS hasn't changed either, but my display seems much laggier than before. Previously I had a smooth image, now it's stuttering.
Could try a hard reset of the bios either with the jumper if the board has it or by removing the cmos battery.
Have you updated the chipset driver if not try this first.
I've updated the chipset driver, but don't see any noticeable changes.
Do you think my computer is just at its maximum ability? It's bizarre as neither the CPU, GPU or memory are working overly hard.
EDIT: I just changed the RAM settings to higher hz again and it didn't change anything.
If I'm reading that right in your last run your at 1066 and at the start of those thread your score was 769. I would say that's a good improvement.
If your game FPS hasn't improved though I don't know where the bottleneck is.
All you can do now is install MSI afterburner and log everything over a duration. That way you can see FPS and the clock speed of your GPU and CPU cores over a length of time.
Run a graphics test, Ash. Unigine Valley or Heaven (extreme preset). You should see GPU usage hit 100% in that. Grab the score.
As for RAM try 2666MHz and see if you get better results than with 2133MHz. Maybe the RAM, or the motherboard, or the CPU's IMC, doesn't like 3000MHz.
This was the first score after updating the BIOS drivers, bud.
How do I change it to 2666mhz? Manually in the BIOS?
Here is the results from the graphics benchmark.
So each stick of ram should be 2666 mhz?
EDIT: I tried to change it in BIOS, but I don't get a chance to input figures. Either disabled or 3000mhz.
Any further advice, Danny? Or anybody else for that matter.
Your Heaven run was on custom settings so I wasn't able to compare that graphics score with others using the Extreme Preset.
And you need to figure out a way to set a different speed for the RAM. Can't help you there.
CPU seemed fine.
Have you tried hitting f2 in the bios to show advance menu rather that the easy mode?
Still had no joy. I somehow managed to adjust it from 3000 (Auto) to 2666, but the HW64 showed it as this... Is this correct?
Cinebench showed a decline in performance.
Yep, that's 2666MHz. It reports as 1333 but being double data rate (DDR), that's 2666MHz effective.
Still no luck then I guess
May be a silly question, but is this a specific game? I have the ultimate rig and still can’t get above 60 frames in red dead 2 at 4K because of issues with their game...
