Need some advice

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone, Happy New Year! I just got a 4790K for Christmas with a Z97 Pro 4 Motherboard, My Question is for P3D V3, Do you recommend Hyperthreading to be ON or OFF?

 

Thanks :)

On my 4790k I use hyperthreading on with Affinitymask 85.

With FSX, I used to tweak all the time, but with Prepar3d v3, just leave everything as it is - except of course for adjusting the settings in the in-game options. What GPU have you got? That makes more of a difference in P3D because it offloads more of the work to the graphics card. 

 

If you do want to adjust things - well you have an unlocked processor for overclocking. I have the same CPU and it's great for P3D - it has a boost to over 4 Ghz so I actually don't overclock for P3D - I used to go up to 4.6 Ghz on FSX. I use a mild OC on my GPU.

Search through this forum - there are quite a few long threads with pros & cons and some benchmark tests. You really need to make your own decision based upon your setup and type of flying.
