    i dont have fraps installed

    im also running a 5400rpm drive so yea... kinda not really going to do alot of good is it when fraps which hogs cpu usage bogs down the hdd since i recently had a catastrophic HDD failure with multiple HDDs doing the click of death. lol

    point is im averaging 90fps on Caspian right now and cpu usage is at 75%

    Caspian Border 120 second time demo recorded by using a jeep around the map
    Frames, Time (ms), Min, Max, Avg
    12768, 120000, 8, 175, 106.400


    CPU usage at 4ghz

    why cant you believe it? ever think i have multiple profiles lol and that the one you see there is reserved for games and dosent have Admin rights lol.

    i mean if we want to insult the names used at log in why do we use aliases on TPU why not use are real names as are forum names ? ;)


    Also this is how you can tell DICE / EA's battlelog is full of shit when it ranks me as the most skilled played in the TPU platoon.

    Heya NFO! You and I had some good times with those CoD (2, 4, and WaW) and Source games over at A2G. :) I'm with a different group now called [-SoC-] (Soldiers of Chaos). I even used that same animated image you're talking about on our short-lived TF2 server that I had set up. :p A couple people from TPU here occasionally join up on our TeamSpeak at SoC too.

    The beta is about to end in a few hours here but definitely add me on Battlelog when the game comes out. My name will be TimSad. See ya on the Battlefield!

    Were you using the 5970 with the 9550? Thats some low FPS if so, like I said with my 5850's (should be slightly slower than your 5970) I was seeing 85 - 90 FPS average with my 1055t at 3.8ghz. The results you got from Sandy would be what I would have expected, like I said 110 - 120FPS average at most, not 150+. I know Sandy is great, but like I said before, there is no way I could see it doubling 85 fps with the same GPUs.

    We are discussing BF titles and performance with different CPU's. That is on topic, it doesn't have to be discussion about only in the game. People will come here with issues running it, and we will help them and discuss other things that give performance gains to the games we play.

    but the real problem is this

    log on with your steam ID
    launch Bf3
    crate account for Origin (why your using Steam mmmmmm )
    Get the problem if your in Steam account why do you have to use your ID for Origin would it not make sense for EA to not sell a Steam version and just get everyone to use Origin.Then have some site with inside info "Yeah they are saying it will be on Steam" .....Yet EA/Dice clearly said they will not sell it on Steam YOU NEED Origin to log in to battle log and play.I can not see them redoing the game EXE file this late in production just to suite a handful of user`s on Steam to play the game.

    Why would you bother with the hardware you have in your sig if you are not willing/game enough to OC a little. Seems like a waste of money to me. :rolleyes:

    You won't wreck shit by simply changing a cpu multiplier or increasing your nb freq. Its voltage and hence more heat that kills shit. You can OC a X6 processor up to at least 3.7ghz without any voltage increases.;)

    I am spewing, just got on to play some BF3 and the beta is closed. We didn't get the beta until 1030pm the next day because of time difference and yet it gets closed early on us. :(

    Some people don't know how easy it is to overclock these days.
    Hell, when I got back into gaming I thought you still had to use black magic and beseech the Dark Lord in order to overclock.
    It is so much easier now.

    Like for example, will the H60 cooler be a good buy for the 8-core bulldozer? If I go liquid, i want to cool both the cpu and gpu.

    Crazyeyes you CAN throw C4 a fairly fair distance (and same with ammo and health) but there is a technique to it (e.g. jump + forward or some shit) and I can't really find a good explanation as yet. Supposedly this was possible in BC2 as well but the key action was a little different? Anyone have more info? Here is a video where the guy is throwing C4 but I think it can go even farther than this...

    Reayth has no problem blowing shit up with C4. Saw him take out a tank with ease. I've blown myself up several times.

    Yeah BC2 felt outdated like right away; before I even tasted Caspian (e.g. real Battlefield).

    That said, a couple things in BF3 feel chintzy compared to BC2 most notably so far the tanks. They just seem less weighty and more like toys somehow. I can hit a dip in the terrain and spin around 180 degrees ffs like I'm in a ultralight Dune Buggy. The main gun doesn't feel and sound as big and badass as I think it should either; perhaps some unlocks will fix that? I also don't like the weird and kinda lame warning alarm sound; at first I though that was an engineer repairing me or something (which I soon figured it wasn't and wouldn't have made sense now anyway as it's a torch).

    dont get me wrong its not hard using C4 to blow up tanks ive blown up so 10-15 tanks with C4 its just even with the run jump method my soldier tends to just drop the C4 at his feet lol rather frustrating.

    Yea me too! I made sure I got a good dose of it last night but I doubt that will hold me over until release.

    WUT?

    Yeah I am going to have to practice. By the time I found out I could throw crates in BC2 I pretty much played Engie exclusively so I didn't bother learning. Here's a vid from same dude showing him throwing ammo crates in BF3:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxSohKiNJps

    Also, knifing sure is slow and awkward, at least at present. And twice I tried to get dudes who were prone and missed (more than one swipe too) and died by gunshots to my shins. Guess I gotta go prone first too?

    I casually walk up behind tanks, plant C4, run behind something and boom. I have destroyed at least 9 tanks with this method and unlike Crazy, I survived all of them but one.

    Real soldiers do not Frisbee toss high yield explosive putty around. While I am sure you could and some one has done in real life, situation that are resolved with "Us the C4 we brought Sgt." are precision demos. Just saying.

    I have no grip about the C4 girly throw as it will prevent spamming douchebags from using them like hand grenades. That and "Friendly fire OFF" no longer applies to you killing yourself <- that was a good move.

    Think about how that would be abused if you could throw C4 far enough to survive considering the kit using it has virtually infinite ammo.

    Good point I guess. Being able to toss health or ammo from cover is nice and not so badly "abusable" tho.

    Anyone have any comments on knifing? I guess I won't worry about it too much until I see how the final is.

    I'm tied for the 3rd best player? Win.... Must be the... 341 hours in Bad Company 2
    ... But ya dunno how you got first.. were the same level and basically score but I got there 3 hours faster then u.. which is a 1/4th roughly of your game time

    I like it. BC2 it was a legit primary weapon now its like it should be, a silent way to take out a lone enemy.
