I have nailed down FSX feeze-up's and CTD's

Recommended Posts

Just in case you don't cruise the MOBO/CPU etc forum... here is just one post about this. This post IS about FSX, and not truly about hardware...for it will affect your use and enjoyment of FSX if you follow this lead...:-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------I have totally nailed the CTD's/BSOD/ANIMATION FREEZE issue with some user's systems, including my own.I am now back to running my CPU at 4.0 GHz and have the SYTEM MEMORY back to stock as recommended by the manufacturer.If you, by ramping up your CPU, also have to ramp up your MEMORY MHz....then that is where you are having the above issues with FSX. The crashes and freezes are MEMORY related and not CPU related. Because I have an EXTREME CPU, I can merely ramp up the clock speed of each core and not have to ramp up the system speed (which also affects your memory speed...), but can leave MEMORY at stock MHz. I am running totally stable now, with all CPU O/C performance restored. I do complete flights and have no further instability/CTD's/BSOD/animation freezes.So folks...if you have either O/C'd your system memory, and/or your graphics card memory...ten-to-one that is where you are having issues. Either you have to take your CPU (if not an unlocked multiplier part) back to system stock, so you can run your system memory at manufacturer's MHz settings, or you will keep running the P.I.T.A. of FSX instability. It is any O/C of MEMORY (system and/or---- possibly graphics cards) that causes FSX to act with the above issues...and not running your CPU at around 4.0 GHz. If you have an unlocked CPU, you are breezing.... Ramp up your CPU, but keep MEMORY at stock values.Enjoy.....Mitch

Mitch, I really don't understand you.You already posted the thread called "FSX freezes NOT the fault of FSX...was my O/C " here and because everyone (included myself) appreciate your positive personality I didn't want to lock it and I moved it to the Hardware forum.Now, you reopen a new thread here with a copy of your last post there. :( What do you think people will speak about in this new thread ? Hardware, right?So we'll have the same discussion here and there...What do you expect us to do? To move it again to the Hardware forum?So we'll have twice the same discussion in the Hardware forum...ALL discussions in the Hardware forum are FS9/X related and people use this forum to get help buying, building, overclocking or repairing their FS computer so if I follow you we could have a copy of every single thread existing in the Hardware forum, here in the FSX forum because "this post IS about FSX, and not truly about hardware...for it will affect your use and enjoyment of FSX if you follow this lead..."So please... tell me what should I do now with this new post?? I'm really confused... :(

Overclocking IS about HARDWARE and SO this SHOULD be LOCKED or MOVED to THE hardware FORUM.

My previous (apparently unstable) OC was causing CTD's and G3D.dll errors with FSX. My current 4GHz OC has proved to be 12hr+ prime stable and so far zero CTD's wih FSX, not to mention Portal 2 where I was having serious CTD's as well.

Ok, David. Just totally delete this post. As you say...overkill. Mitch
Maybe also a ban for a month for being over enthusiastic? :(

David, I just noticed your hardware specs. Geez, you are almost at 5ghz!!! How does FSX run on your system and what addon scenery and extras are you able to run?Bob

I guess very good, much the same like everyone else's at 5Ghz.But, take a look here:https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0AuiXjW8fJyDrdC1KZm5fSlJYdnJBaXRRclFuU0U3WUE&hl=en&authkey=CMSSocoI#gid=0
