FPS Increase per 100 MHz

Recommended Posts

Hi there,Well its the question I bet many of you have been asking ans so I spent my afternoon and evening trying to find an answer and came out with some results. To test this, if you haven't read my other thread, I ran three instances of FSXMark11 at each speed. It wasn't a vanilla install of FSX but it shouldn't matter because I was running against my own results. So here are my results:As you can see there isn't really that much of an increase at all with it been between around 4FPS for 800MHz, not very impressive. I didn't go up to 4.9 or 5 due to heat reasons but maybe I will try one day. The settings are the ones used for FSXMark11 and on top of that are 8xS AA, 2x Supersampling and 8x AF. I can't think of too much else to say, ask your questions and I will try my best to answer them.Enjoy,

20% overclock, 12% more FPSI think that using a complex A/C will scale almost 1:1 with CPU clocks. At least that's what I see here

maybe, i might try it again one day to use more of the CPU intensive systems on something like the NGX but then again, you would think that those features would take away from other features leaving you with the same scaling. Interesting never the less.

Try to do some more testing because that seems VERY off IMHO.

I have my RAM at 1333 MHz 7-7-7-21. I don't know how much I can overclock it if at all. Any Ideas?

Bump up the voltage to like 1.65 and go to DDR3@2000. Set timings to something like 9-10-9-28.

The problem is frame rate is not only affected by CPU clocks and indeed would vary between different hardware and software configurations to some degree.

Over-volting memory .15v is a good way to kill it in my experience.The lower volt kits are more susceptible to this.

Well, if I purchased RAM that says on the product page, 1.65V. Does this mean that I can't go above 1.65 without frying the RAM?

Not necessarily. I always question the sanity of people that over-volt RAM, though. RAM is all but guaranteed to fizzle before it should when over-volted much. Weigh that with next to no benefit in FSX.

You can probably overvolt the memory but you are very probably going to damage or destroy the CPU memory controller if you go too far. I think 1.58 volts is the Intel specified absolute maximum volts for Sandy Bridge.

I might try 1866 9-9-9-28 or something like that.

See how long your memory last .15v over. And actually, 1.65v is pushing it but OK.

Well if thats the case, I may not. I may try and see what I can do with 1.5V.
