    Merry Christmas!
  2. Try increasing your temp to 1.350. I did an offset of 0.280 v. and I'm stable at 5.1 Ghz on all cores and never exceeds 70C.

    Orbx causing long pauses in v4.4

    I have the same issues with pauses going into KLAX or KSFO using Orbx SOCAL/ NOCAL but never noticed pauses before until I installed UTL. I have a separate monitor that monitors ProAtc/x, and the moment I see aircraft's refreshing in ProAtc/x window, is exactly when the sim pauses, roughly for about 5-10sec. In my case, UTL is the issue.

    PTA and Tomato Shade

    I also have a question about Tomatoeshade and hope someone can help. Currently, I have Envtex/Envshade/Envdir combined with PTA + ASP3dv4 sky textures and weather engine . I am also using Skyforce for everything else but their weather engines and sky textures. If I wanted to use Tomatoeshade, do I need to also get rid of Envtex/Envdir or can I use those in conjunction with tomatoeshade like I do PTA? Troy?
  7. I used the Rocket 88 to delid my 8700K. It was an easy process and now my CPU is happy at 5.1GHZ on all cores, and never passes 65 degrees on full load. You might want to consider these two products if you plan on delidding: 1) Permatex 82180 Ultra Black Max Oil Resistance 2) Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut Thermal Grease Paste Troy

    Newest Nvidia driver 398.82 issues

    So the other problem I had with 398.82 was that it was causing stutters in my other games as well such as FarCry 5, Battlefield 1 and CoD. I had two crashes in FarCry with that driver until I went back to an older one. So I'm optimistic with the newer fix

    Newest Nvidia driver 398.82 issues

    So going back to my original post, it appears a fix for stutters following a windows update is resolved with a newer driver 398.86. I'm about to try it and will report my findings. https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/geforce-398-86-hotfix-driver-download.html

    Did you mean 398.82, their latest driver? 398.36 is what I rolled back to and it what works perfect for me.

    Newest Nvidia driver 398.82 issues

    I resolved that pretty quickly, just by going back to the previous. 🤣

    Newest Nvidia driver 398.82 issues

    Haven't had many performance issues with this machine since I built it in January, or from following my normal procedures before flights. Been averaging between 50-75 fps with no noticeable stutters etc. I also use PTA, Skyforce and AsP3dv4 and from what I understand, clearing sharers is normal. Prior to installing last driver, it has worked well for me. UPDATE: I have since uninstall/reinstall older driver and all is back to normal.
