    Trying to pin down a strange performance issue.

    So I tested with all stock and still got the issues. The closer to stock, it seems the more I see of hitching and stuff. I may have pinned something down actually. Along the way of messing with all this I actually also found an option in the overclocking menu that would let me limit the...

    Should I limit PBO settings at all if cooler/etc keeps up?

    I'm not. That's part of why I kept the original post so simple and didn't go into all that. I realize what the defaults are and it took a lot of time and effort to find what I consider the perfect balance, even if it is slightly below the stock boost.

    That's fine. I get where you're coming from. Just, atm I basically am setting them to not be limiting anything until I'm given some sort of reason to do so.

    Should I limit PBO settings at all if cooler/etc keeps up?

    I tried to look over it, but it's three pages of discussing a wildly unrelated issue, so I struggled to find anything relevant mixed in there. What I can say is that -- at least at the more limited frequency I'm using and lowered voltage and all -- my CPU is definitely not running into any...

    Should I limit PBO settings at all if cooler/etc keeps up?

    Well, I actually have a boost limit set to -250 (I found that the AMD Overclocking section has an option to change it to negative whereas the normal PBO settings do not for some reason.) That keeps it under the point of the voltage curve where the voltage shoots up fast, thus keeping heat...

    Trying to pin down a strange performance issue.

    Yeah, I did do that already. It's more like a suspect some bad design or something that just plain doesn't work right in this specific setup somehow though. For example, since turning off swap seemed to make a difference both in performance and actual in-game visuals (namely that texture...

    Should I limit PBO settings at all if cooler/etc keeps up?

    So I just wanted to make a quick check. Is there any reason I should limit any of the PBO settings as long as the cooler and everything is keeping up? To explain more specifically, basically I have a pretty good third party cooler and my CPU is underclocked just a little (5600X with max boost...

    Trying to pin down a strange performance issue.

    I don't really have enough money even to buy a PSU to return. It's also risky that something could go wrong in regards to the return process and I could get stuck with the cost and no return (rare, I know, but still, the possibility is non-zero.) I guess at some point I really do need to buy a...

    Trying to pin down a strange performance issue.

    Well, I don't know for sure about just a brand as a whole so specifically doing such a thing, but FWIW, the RAM I am using right now is indeed Mushkin. I don't think you can look at brand only even in this though -- especially since Mushkin doesn't make the actual chips (off the top of my head...

    Trying to pin down a strange performance issue.

    That is just about as unhelpful and inappropriate as a response as it gets. To be perfectly frank, it's borderline actual trolling and I was tempted to outright report it. Besides, to answer you more directly, I don't like the direction Intel is going anyway. AMD has been striking a better...

    Trying to pin down a strange performance issue.

    So far with no swap files I've only ever gotten a crash once in the most extreme situation ever (two things that have basically zero optimizations and generally not so great design running at the same time) and things are indeed generally running better. Empyrion had an interesting issue where...

    Trying to pin down a strange performance issue.

    Ok, ngl, it didn't occur to me to check the chipset given that on a board like this that shouldn't be an issue. I'll take a look at that. Thanks. EDIT: Seems FClock is running at 1800MHz. None of the temperature sensors available in HWInfo are high enough to be a problem. Chipset is only...

    Trying to pin down a strange performance issue.

    I did specify it wasn't just the one game, just that that one was the one I saw it in the most. It's definitely not less than 15 FPS though. They're describing a far more extreme issue than what I'm seeing that is for one game specifically, not something that is in many. As for "more concise"...

    Trying to pin down a strange performance issue.

    I just recently did a system upgrade. Basically all major components. CPU, motherboard, RAM, and GPU. Even tossed in a new PCI-E M.2 SSD for good measure. For the most part the hardware should be able to handle pretty much anything with reasonable quality settings, but I'm having issues with...

    Is it perhaps possible to write fixed frequencies and voltages to the videocard's firmware?

    I see. When I considered AMD vs nVidia that was one aspect it never occurred to me to consider. I don't like it when anything is too locked down, be it a video card or a smartphone or just whatever. It's always good for people to have the ability to exert more control over their devices (just...
