Overclocking - FPS goes down? Why?
#1
I am using an intel i-7 and the Asus motherboard Turbo V software in Windows 7 64-bit.

When I change
BCLK Frequency from 131 to 151

my FPS in Dragon Age 8 actually goes down? anyone know why?

Edit: CPU-Z reads for the two configurations at load respectively
2954 Mhz
3318 Mhz

This question in wrong forum i think, perhaps your cpu throttle due heat limit. Please check your cpu temp.

Check your temperatures using CPU-id hardware monitor or speed fan. It may be an overheating issue or an unstable overclock. You tried stressing out that OC of yours? Use prime95 or other CPU torture tests for over 2hrs min or a whole day. If your PC doesnt go blue screen or have any errors, its stable.

20 runs of Linpack should be a quick way to check for instability. If it passes that, then do longer stability testing with Prime95, etc.

Needless to say, he needs to be monitoring the temps closely at the same time. Lotsa programs he case use - HWMonitor, CoreTemp, RealTemp, Speedfan, etc. Lol, I actually have all four of the above opened (and TMonitor, too) when I stress test. Laugh

its not good to run many programs when u stress test and also with linpack the temps will go high in just 1 sec

Asus software? My money's on that being the problem.

Alternatively, the system is clocking down under high temp and that's causing the FPS drop. It's the default setting for many motherboards, especially modern ones that rely on manufacturer-provided drivers that try to increase performance on the fly.

Definitely not a good idea to OC via software, better to do it in the bios. However I think its speedstep as I had that problem as well when I OC'ed also check power settings to make sure its high performance and not balanced, thats also another thing I have noticed.

Also I would check your temps as everyone else is suggesting as that is another possible problem.
