I7 4790K low FPS

Recommended Posts

I recently installed my new GTX1070 & I7 4790K and I am a little disappointed that I haven't seen a massive improvement.  I definitely think the graphics are a lot crisper and sharp however my FPS only seems to be about 6 FPS more in places like New York and Seattle which always taxed my old setup.  I've noticed that looking on task manager thread 1 seems to be maxed out and the other 7 seem to register hardly anything.  Should I add the affinity mask CFG tweak maybe?

Sorry, but there isn't enough detail here to even take a guess...

You installed your new GTX and i7 4790K... into what?  An existing system (did you swap out the new CPU and GPU) with what previous components installed?  Or was this a totally fresh from the ground up build?

If you install a new Mainboard or a new CPU, you HAVE TO install Windows again!

I installed my 1070 and I7 4790K onto an existing Z87M-Plus and also added some new RAM.  Various forums state that there is no need to reinstall windows and all other programs I have run fine.

Slowly getting there... so your Z87 held a i5 4xxx or i7 4xxx CPU?  If so did you make sure the BIOS is ready for your 4790K?  Also, I would uninstall the chipset drivers as well as the video drivers, reboot, then reinstall the chipset drivers (that include your 4790K), reboot, then install the video drivers that came with your GTX 1070.  Reboot then install whatever version of video drivers you wish to try.
