  1. I wonder, how did you get to try such a large step from 1000 to 300000?! Did you have some tips about the possible range of the values? Thanks for the video.

    P3D running but CPU not running at max speed

    I think Ray had the older model or did not dig enough into it. CH gear set is still the most programmable, flexible and versatile joystick solution for any flight simulator. My Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog is gathering dust, unfortunately. Think about this: due to the number of buttons, hats and sophisticated programmability of CHM I stopped using TrackIR with P3D/XP. CH joysticks are so comfy in my hands, I just can't drop them for Thrustmaster's gems

    Thank you lol. The top Boeing2 VRI is there in the picture just to prove the concept of my hardware mess, so normally it's sitting somewhere on the floor when not used, I swap it with Airbus FCU. My head is level with the top frame of the monitor (30-inch), so the switches are well within reach. PS: and let my NHL19 playing there not mislead you regarding my advanced age. No, it's me playing it, not my grandkids yet )). My grand daughter just started flying last week with that stick first time, she's 8 soon.

    We'll see. This is what we got here, I grew suspicious of hardware over the years (does the image open up with the click?)

    Ok, ok, just positive vibes to you and your box. I know you'll solve this enigma sometime.

    And be it so, I don't really like profiling, Ray.

    P3D running but CPU not running at max speed

    Happened to me too many times due to o/c-locks, some unexplainable RAM incompatibility, BIOS drivers, you name it, etc.. The most weird and difficult problems occurred to some reason around running MSFS, P3D, BMS, DCS, WOFF totally ignoring different payware benchmarks as if scoffing at me.

    I'm not trolling, God forbid, just thinking that Ray's case requires a more decisive approach (pun not intended). And there's nothing to fear of in BIOS.

    Of course!! Thanks. PS: how about shuffling those boards in the box though? ))
  10. Lol, ShezA, you don't need to hold 60fps if you set your monitor to 30Hz. Just make sure your VSYNC is on in P3D then try slider to Unlimited. You'll see your system will churn out not more than around 30 fps and may well be more fluid.
  11. If your monitor supports 30Hz of course.

    I for one start pulling RAM sticks out one by one when I see some really weird behavior like in your case.

    Ray, you're a very experienced flight simmer, I'm really surprised how you haven't turned your BIOS and hardware inside out yet with this problem. Seriously.

    You might save a lot of time for yourself just doing #1 (setting BIOS to less ambitious values towards the default ones). Name your mobo (I know you mentioned it somewhere above) and I'll tell you how exactly to save your current settings, no matter how they frighten you into not doing that.
