4930k @ 4.5, FSX still low frames!

Recommended Posts

Afternoon Gentlemen,

 

I am pulling my hair out now with this system,

 

I have recently upgraded my system with a 4930K @4.5ghz which came as a bundle overclocked from 3XS.

 

the system spec is this

 

CPU: 4930K hex core @ 4.5Ghz

Mobo: P9X79 LE

GPU: GTX660Ti 2GB

Memory: 16GB Corsair Vengence 1600Mhz

PSU: Corsair 650W Modular

SSD: 64GB for Windows

HDD: 1TB Sata with 8GB SSD hybrid

OS: W7

Fully updated FSX

 

Add-ons

 

REX

ActiveSky

PMDG 737

MyTraffic X

 

I find that in EGLL, I regularly struggle with a super unsmooth frame rate of less that 15 in some cases.

Am I being optimistic expecting more than this?

Also when flying at cruising altitude over these cities, i occasionally drop to single figures.

 

This system is built specifically with fsx in mind, everything was brand new except the graphics card which i have owned and used for just under 12 months.

 

Any specific help would be appreciated to point me in the right direction.

any additional info required I will reply ASAP

 

Regards,

 

Manxmann

What fps are you getting ? You should post if you are using any scenery / aircrafts / weather addons make things a lot easier.

 

How many cores is that Chip ? well it may not be relevant but just asking. 

 

 Is your FSX.cfg tweaked with BP and AF ?

The Chip is a 6 core.

 

I am using Ultimate Terrain X and Ground Environment but no specifific airport or location sceneries.

 

In normal flight away from huge cities or airports I get average about 27 fps but can get no higher than 18 at active RW at EGLL and is unflyable from there.

 

I have attempted with the BP and AF tweak but results were marginal. however, I may not be carrying it out correctly, dont think the 6 physical cores help which trying to work out Affinity mask.

What about scenery settings in FSX ?

 

try Affinitymask=60 (quad) i get better performance. also try locking fps at 30 in fsx

Just an FYI you might consider adding more CPU voltage and north bridge voltage I had the same issue with my fx-8350. frames were lower at 4.5ghz then they were at 4.0ghz turned out my overclock was stable enough to not crash but not stable enough to run fsx well.

yikes FSX works well on an  OC'ed 4.0 on an intel chip like this powerful one you have , I am using the FX 6300 at 3.0 Ghz (under clocked )  and FSX is fine. Not saying that I am getting tremendous performance but she runs great on max settings.

 

BTW is your system crashing at that clock speed then yes I would agree to

z06z33

 

about checking the voltage and stuff in the BIOS.

I will look into this, I dont know off the top of my head but i think my CPU runs in the 1.3v range, whether this is too low?

 

it does run other games easily tho?  would this indicate that voltages are not the issue?

will give those settings a try,

 

im quite high on the scenery settings, but have tried backing them off too but with little improvement also.

 

thanks for your responses.

Be careful of keeping the Water to Max , getting to high 1.x , your CPU should pull through even on high settings.

 

What about REX and Active sky

Don't forget the highmemfix=1 and for now leave the other tweaks out.

 

Have you set up nvidia inspector!?

 

Google "setting up FSX and how to tune it" lengthy but should help optimally run your sim.

Most games aren't as CPU intensive as FSX. Try running prime95 to check your overclocks stability if it runs without errors for an hour your overclock is fine and something else is causing your low frames. As for CPU voltage idk what Intel's run at I'd look at some stuff on toms hardware. Also when raising voltage keep an eye on your temps and don't over volt the CPU.

After doing a bit more reading i think i am going to restart my tweak of the .cfg

 

one thing that may have been a mistake is my .cfg had TEXTURE_BANDWIDTH_MULTI when, since reading, i believe should be TEXTURE_BANDWIDTH_MULT.

 

thanks for everyones help  and will let you know how i get on with this next adventure haha.

afternoon,

 

below is my .cfg file which has been remodded.  sitting at egll, no traffic and it sits at 30, but does drop below when taking off.  

 

is anyone able to give me feedback on the file and whether it is correct?

 

regards,

 

Manxmann

So you're running dx10?

 

Is the scenery payware? If you run payware scenery and NGX or another complex addon you're unlikely to achieve 30fps on the ground.

 

In your first post you wrote only had 15 fps. What do you get now on average?

i feel that 15 fps in dx10 is fine,i have a 3770k 4,5 and a overclocked gtx 780

and a 500 gb samsung evo ssd,i get about 13-20 fps in heavy airports most in UK and USA

why they are so heavy i dont know,in oslo 2.0 i get 25-30 on ground in stansted from uk2000 15 fps,stange right?

we have to face that some aiports are good with fps others dont.

I've always run this at UNLIMITED for best results.  This is also true for me in P3DV2.  Change your Fiber Frame Fraction to maybe 20 or so as well else you may be prone to blurry textures.  I have a SB-E chip at 4.43Ghz so your CPU should do quite well as I know mine does.
