  1. I am seeing improvement in minimum frame rates in heavily populated areas with a lot of plane traffic. To be transparent I still have FPS issues with one plane the A2A Connie. It is only on take off and landing but even that is better on the new system. (I don't know why that plane has always given me so many FPS issues.) Planes like the default Carenado Bonanza runs like a dream in all situations such as never dipping below 40 FPS over KSEA in heavy cloud cover and rain. I run max everything except Shadows on high and the following Scenery Object settings: Scenery Complexity: Max Autogen draw distance: Max Autogen vegetation density: Very high Autogen building density: Off
  2. I have a 9700k clocked at 5.0Ghz on all cores. I upgraded from an i7-4770k clocked to 4.4Ghz. I didn't do any head to head benchmarks but my system has never ran so well. I went with the Gigabyte Z390 Ultra.
  3. I have tweaked a little more and got the voltage down to 1.360 and the temp down to 78c MAX at 5.0Ghz all cores no AVX offset. This is running Prime95 for 35 minutes without AVX instructions. No HT because the i7 9700k doesn't have HT. Ambient Temp is 70 Fahrenheit. Motherboard : Gigabyte Z390 Ultra So getting better.
  4. Interested in seeing what you can do Rob. I just received my 9700k. I just started testing my over-clock and I think I may have got a below average CPU. So far I am at 5.0GHZ on all cores but having to use 1.375v to get there. The temps are not bad with a max of 81c using an EVGA CLC 280.
  5. I can highly recommend a 1440p 34" Ultra wide Monitor. The extra screen area on the sides make a big difference.
  6. Rob, If you really must have the new 9900K right now the only place to get them is Overclockers UK. https://www.overclockers.co.uk/pc-components/processors/intel I thought about getting one from here but with the exchange rate it is too expensive.

    What altitude where you flying? Might want to check your pressurization. 🙂

    P3D V5

    I agree. i would hate to think how much it would cost me to replace all of my add-ons. V4.3 is running fine. Although I am waiting on the new I9 9900K to upgrade.

    Waiting for the 'Bus?

    This means the A330 is right around the corner.

    What do you guys think of Air Hauler 2?

    I have been using AH and AH2 for sometime. I currently have a cargo company that I have been using for several years now. Let just say I have a stable of A319 and 787. 🙂 All my planes are paid off and I am sitting on $52 million in cash. Here are some tips starting out.... 1. Buy insurance for your aircraft. One bad landing can set you back. (AI cannot use insurance, but I still insure the plane because if you can catch the damage before it gets low enough to trigger the AI doing the automatic repair it can save your company.) 2. Select pilots that have high airman-ship. Particularly high scores in landing. 3. Don't be afraid to lease large aircraft. Two large aircraft with good crews can make you a ton of money. 4. Don't expand too fast. 5. Watch the marketplace for used aircraft when you have the cash to purchase with insurance. This can save you a lot of money. Also the cost of insurance is based on the purchase price of the aircraft. Cheaper the initial price of the aircraft cheaper the insurance.

    Multi-Monitor FPS drop?

    There are several things you can check. I have fought this issue in the past and the following have helped me solve the FPS drop. 1. Make sure you are not running overclocking software for your GPU. Even if it is just for fan control. 2. Turn off vertical sync. 3. Any frame rate limiting software. Here are some helpful links https://www.prepar3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6314&t=126883&start=60 https://www.prepar3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=129530

    Viscount - Legends of Flight

    The A2A Constellation and PDMG DC-6B are my two favorite planes. Trust me with the automated FE it will not be too complex for you. Both are outstanding planes. I am currently trying to decide if I want to purchase the PMDG 777 or 747 or the QW787. I have never liked having to program FMS and prefer my Garmin 750. Decisions decisions.

    Viscount - Legends of Flight

    I will be honest. I have bought many bargain planes including many Just Flight planes including the Viscount. Nothing wrong with the planes but they are showing their age. It will work in Prepar3d v4 but you may see anomalies with textures and some systems. I now days stick with Prepar3d V4 native planes only.
  14. Bios updates may impact over-clocking. This may be a double whammy.
  15. Fixed the issue. I had installed a few add-ons and didn't start the simulator to allow the shaders and files to update before I tried to run PTA. After letting Prepar3d v4.1 run I was able to successfully connect with PTA.
