Hey guys,

I am currently running an i5 3570k @ 4.4ghz and getting around 25 - 30 FPS on the ground / low altitudes and well into the 40's in the air. My question is if I overclock to a higher GHz, will the performance increase? My PC Specs are as follows ...

 

i5 3570k @4.4 GHz currently sitting around 63 degrees celcius on 100% load.

EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost @ 1200 MHz

8 GB Corsair 1600 MHz RAM

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

600w CX600M Corsair Power Supply

 

I am using FSX Acceleration pack and the addons I run are REX+, PMDG 737NGX, Airbus X Extended, UTX, and some airport scenery addons. I am looking to pick up Ground Services X and I have heard that was pretty frame rate intensive so I wanted to make sure I could run it before I bought it. I do fly on VATSIM sometimes so the traffic sometimes lowers FPS as well.

My fsx.cfg is tweaked pretty well I would say so there isn't much improvement there. Also, would overclocking the ram add any improvement?

 

Thanks for any help,

Preston

It looks to me that you have a nicely tuned system...

 

Yes, overclocking the CPU further will give you more performance, but I cannot

believe that you would be able to clock much higher without heat or instability

problems... I would leave well enough alone.

 

Overclocking RAM is never a good idea IMHO.  Run it at its published specs, period.

If able to stay above 20 FPS low and slow in your PMDG NGX at a busy airport like EGLL, turn off your FPS counter and enjoy your flight! There is nothing visually different between 30 FPS or 60. Regards.
