Ill have to try to get this mems to up from 2400 then...
I bought a 2400Mhz CL10 ram two days ago just for that reason. Sadly i can only use it at 2133Mhz due Sandy limitation. Faster ram matters more and more, benchmarks really shows it, games also. I was amazed how Fallout 4 performance was effected.
High bandwidth helps in those CPU bottlencked scenes alot.
Not a big difference for me.
edit: mem from 2400 to 2933.
1. You have a hexa core capable of working 12 threads.
2. You have overclocked it beyond normal to 4.5ghz
3. You have a fury x, while the best amd can offer, it falls short compared to an overclocked gtx 980ti which was by digital foundry.
4. Wrong test. Try gta v, witcher 3, far cry 4...
Best test should be RoTTR, but i dont have it.:infinity:
Sure it does, CF works fine in that title for me, as completely unnecessary as it is.
I've also been playing with RAM speeds, I've done a 'basic' OC on my 1866MHz CL9 kit to 2400MHz CL11 and it seems to reduce FPS drops quite a bit in a few games. Basically, if your GPU(s) are already running at 100% all the time with no drops, so if you're already entirely GPU bound, it probably won't help. If you're getting drops for other reasons though, it's worth a shot for sure.
can confirm CF works, its a source engine game, why wouldnt it work.
That's interesting, I just tried it with v16.3 and it doesn't crash on start-up anymore!! I am 100% sure it crashed until at least 16.1.1, didn't check anymore after that because I didn't expect AMD to fix it even though I made a report, maybe they actually did!! Did you play the game on 16.1 or 16.2?
I wasn't talking about CF improving performance; in my case, the game crashed before it even reached the menu, unless I disabled CF globally. It seems it has been fixed now.
What are your clocks on your GPU?
Can you clock it down to 1050Mhz Core and 1400Mhz Memory (for the GPU) and let me know what score you get?
I get just about 8000 (between 7990 & 8010 with 16.3).
My RAM & CPU specs, well you know them, below my DP.
I have my GPU oc'ed through the vBios. I tried to downclock it with Afterburner but it wasn't working, the card worked at full frequency again
It even gave a slightly higher score this time :infinity:
Are you using a FreeSync monitor?
Depends on the game.
Fallout 4 is an extreme example in Intel CPUs but modest on AMD CPU using 980Ti (ofc no AMD dynamic VRAM tech ):
Lol maybe I should take the 1866mhz ram I bought for my friend for myself and give him my 1600mhz ;D ;D ;D ;D
Your results are incredible, i have 8600 points with my 280x at 1ghz core/ 1500mhz men
What frequencies have yours?
Can you send me your bios?
anyone helps me here my timing ddr3 8go
Dude,get in the computer Bios not in that windows Bios.
In the computer Bios try to put Dram timing @ 1866 (i dont know what setting in your MSI board).If it works you are lucky,if not buy another DDR3 RAM or another motherboard (because that B75 is not good for OC,imo).
You need to OC that i3 too.
my i3 not overclock :wanker: and in bios my ram is limit to 1600 mhz :bang: is possible with timing overclock to 1866 mhz
No. All you can do is try to tighten up the timings. Something like 9-9-9-24 instead of 11-11-11-28 you are using.
so i go down number. in bios command rate i have 1t-2t-3t what is that i am noob i never overclock
Leave command rate at 1T and try 9-9-9-24. If PC boots use MaxMEM and Aida64 to see if there is any improvements and stability issues.
OC ram can be really pain the ass.
