Yeah that looks pretty cool !
Not sure if I should start my own thread about this.
I seem to get BSODs only when playing Close Quarters, specifically Donya Fortress. I have tried OP925 and don't get any issues. I spent 6+ hours playing this evening and yesterday as well, playing Conquest and Rush anywhere from 24-64 players and had zero issues.
Just now, just like last night, after playing about 30 minutes of Donya Fortess I got a BSOD. I thought maybe my vcore was low and pumped as high as 1.464v at 5.0Ghz and still got BSOD, but only on DF.
Is anyone else remotely having any sort of similar problems?
cpu just isnt 100% stable back the overclock back some and you wont get the BSOD sounds weird i know but same happens on BF3 and Shogun 2 for me i can push the clocks in many other titles but going higher than my 4.6 24/7 clock results in those 2 titles not playing nice.
I'll give it a shot for a few days and report back, I just don't understand how I can play for many consecutive hours on a variety of maps/players/settings, and only have BSODs on one map. I am absolutely dumbfounded.
I'll report back after tests.
Edit:Just to clarify, I run the settings in my System Specs for all the games I have installed: Crysis, Fallout:New Vegas, Black Mesa Source, Half-life 2, Resident Evil 4, Mechwarrior Online, Hawken, Diablo 3, Assassin's Creed 2, Left 4 Dead, and X: beyond the Frontier with no problems whatsoever, and all BF3 maps, except DF.
Edit 2: Backed down to 4.8Ghz at 1.45v and joined a CQ game of OP925 towards the end of a round and then Scrap Metal started. Got about 10 minutes into the map and BF3 froze, was able to Ctrl-Alt-Del and end the process but could not restart BF3, got a program not responding error. I rebooted and am going to try Conquest 64 and Rush to see what happens.
Since he's back, I thought it was amusing when I read this comment. Have always saved it as a gem in the back of my head lol!!
Did another weapon review, think last one I did was like 2 - 3 weeks ago, so it's been a while. Got a new headset/mic since then and figured out a few things to make it all sound better, and been working on commentary in other videos, so hopefully a bit less monotone, let me know what you guys think.
Didn't know it was 2XP this week. Got 30,000 in one round and ranked up. Nice surprise ! I'm getting to like Warfighter more now, but BF3 is by far the best game out there. I don't see anything catching up until BF4 is released. The open environment just makes it so much better then most shooters.
I really hope they decide to skip BF4 and do BFBC3. I miss those guys!
Well shit. I am still down. Rebuilding two water-cooled machines takes time, man.
And I wouldn't say they'd have to necessarily skip BF4 to do BC3.
I still love BF3 but I think I'm gonna look for something else for a while.
I could live with that too. BF4 is in the works I don't know about BFBC3. I still play BFBC2
about once a week too. It was the first game I ever went outside of being a Lonewolf.
Another great game. That is where I met Gunny , Ducky, Crazyeyes, Haru, Wrig and few others.
Wrig loved the Vietnam maps. Especially Operation Hastings I think it was.
Me and Ducky played the chopper maps a lot. YANKEE'S in Choppers That was just fer you my redneck friends.
Assassin's Creeds new one looks bad ass. I don't play 3rd persons hardly at all though so I'll be skipping it.
look at ram, not CPU.
Are you on Windows 8 by chance? I ask because as Dave suggested it might be RAM. BF3 has a nasty memory leak on Windows 8 for some people. I've been lucky so far.
DayZ Standalone.......ArmA 3 Community Alpha release.
maybe once these drop, we will have more TPU fun as a group again. I still remember in the early dayz of DayZ rolling with Erocker, Haru, Alex, Idaho, Phenom, and one other. now, it is usually haru, rocker, alex, and me but rarely so.
As much as people trash on ArmA II/III, i think/hope that ArmA III will be vastly improved and while it wont be the BF3 to us, it may be a good platform until BFBC3 same thing with DayZ.
What do you mean "you still remember". It was like a month ago.
no it was more like back in June/July era. back when we were still playing on Chernarus.
I'm voting pro-choice. This has got to stop.
It is sweet. Its all ive been playing as of late on Xbox.
Far cry 3 might be fun too. Waiting on reviews though.
I liked the Single Player on Farcry 2, but the MP sucked. I played the shit out of the Single player. It was cool how
you could just jump all over the map and do as you Pleased. I road the shit out of the bus. I've always liked Mass Transit though
Now thats funny I don't care what anyone says
I watched a Youtube on it today. I'm probably gonna get it. The titties are nice. Seriously though it looks cool. Just for the SP, won't expect shit out of the MP.
Getting like a 5 to 10 fps improvement with my 3570K at stock vs i7 870 at 4Ghz. Also, the CPU line in PerfOverlay is much smoother now and pretty well lined-up with GPU (though the GTX 480 may be a bit of a bottleneck now). Overclocked tests soon.
Also, as a nice surprise, the onboard Realtek audio is noticeably better over my X-Fi XtremeGamer. Everything is clearer, especially ambient noises (I noticed it immediately upon joining; heard birds chirping I did not recognize from before). Granted that card's over 5 years old but you still generally always hear "soundcard is better" (not just new soundcards are better). And it was certainly an improvement over my onboard when I bought it back in the Core 2 days.
I just bought Crysis Maximum Edition. The first ! I gave my first one away with a gamer I sold a few years ago.
I love this fucking game. It looks and runs so sweet with this gtx670, and my gtx460.
Runs good on Medium on the laptop too. I played Crysis 2 and still like this one more. Can play LAN games too.
Look pretty gay to me..
