  1. You should check within your task manager to see whether or not FSX is the culprit. FSX does not use multiple cores and it looks like there's a possibility that either an addon or an entirely other program causing the 100% cpu load. The program might be an fsx associated program, so if you are unable to find a specific program, try uninstalling add ons to see if you can find which might be causing a problem. And finally, do a fresh install as a last resort.
  2. I've never done this before so take my advice with a grain of salt. There are couple things I'd keep in mind, a lot of your aircraft profiles are in your "My Documents" folder depending on where you chose to save it. There's also some scattered throughout your directory, I think your scenery should be relatively safe though with just a simple copy and paste as your also copy and pasting the same scenery director. Honestly though, if you just take a night and just reinstall everything, I think you'll save yourself a bit of time debugging what didn't paste over properly. Link Here's a post on cloning software and hardware you can use. I'm sure there are cheaper software available if you google it.
  3. You're on the right track, Skylake doesn't look like it's going to net any significant performance gains, I've heard anything from what you said to as low as 2-3%, all rumors at this point. I think you're better off investing in some heavy duty water cooling and overclock the **** out of that i7. Seems like Skylakes gonna be a big emphasis on the iGPU, maybe a good time to replace my macbook for a light gaming. As for the all-in-ones, I would advise against it as a tech enthusiast, those things lock you into the hardware and often is impossible to upgrade. In addition, they mainly use mobile gpus which simply don't have the same horsepower as their desktop equivalents. I would run your build through reddit.com/r/buildapc just to see if you can save some money on some parts.
  4. I had a G3258 that a buddy of mine lent me for a while. I was able to OC the cpu to around 4.4ghz with the stock cooler, this was running the cpu with 1.250v. I've squeezed out 4.5ghz under 1.3v but crashes after an hour. I think my cpu was about average with the research I did on the web. Even with a water cooler, 4.8ghz running as high as 1.4v is pretty rare and can lead to a much shorter life for the cpu. I think 4.2ghz under a water cooled solution at 1.3v would be the assumption I would take up when purchasing and think of any increase in performance as just pure luck. With that being said, I can run the game max settings and anisotropic filter at around 25fps. That's with traffic at their default levels. I usually run with an i7-4770 and I find it much more reliable and obtain 30fps with the same settings. I know what they say about FSX being only able to run on one core. But I do think multi cores does help the game smooth things out. I run on a msi r7-260x OC, I just got myself a 970, so I'm excited to see if I get some fps bumps.
