not into overclocking, but considering
« on: June 14, 2018, 02:00:43 am »
not into overclocking, but considering.

DCS is really dropping my fps a bit,, and would consider maybe adjusting the cpu, or just gpu a bit if it is going to help a bit. I am used to a happy 50-60 fps, but see my drop to 20 fps in dcs at time. Though I don't see stutters and the graphics keep looking great, I see the fps numbers taking a hit!

anyone else with similar have any experiences?

I did try OC several times of over the years but never stayed with it almost 100% stock setting al these years.

so, see my computers specs, in my signature or profile.


maybe just tweak gpu?
DCS maybe just needs a bit more gpu? Maybe cpu?

I don't have aftermarket cooling.

Thanx   ;)

Hello Ram

Arguably GPU is where you get FPS gain / fail. CPU will only help with load of game. Again arguably. Also SSD helps. What I would do is take note of your current settings and then pick "high" in graphics settings. Try it and note FPS. Note the settings. Then "medium". Try it. Note the settings. Then take the differences and work from there. There are lots of youtubes out there that will help.

I have been gaming and an IT engineer since early 90s. If you get stuck please ask and I can try to help.

every time I bump up some clock or memory..... it crashes the computer....

mine runs good but fps drop to 16 once I a while near the carrier..
other times it is 60 fps...


I have been building computers since the 1980's. I did military computers and commercial.
 In engineering labs and services (service sucks). I know smaller steps are better.
 Just never really like the bad results.  I got.

plus, I can't afford to ruin any parts.

**sorry, on one hand I ask for help, on the other hand I give up...
I am very hesitant...


My Asus motherboard memory and cpu do not like bumping those up either. And the video card was not happy with a small increase.

I forgot to ask. What make of graphics card? I see your spec in sig that is is a GTX 1060 6GB. I had an EVGA branded card and they provided a utility to do OC on it.

ok,,,,

if I take more time to check the video card I could most likely bump it up, but it is very picky... Gigabyte video card, it is a Non-Factory overclocked model. Yes, I bump up the voltage. I don't have the number, I only did a small increment. I think like 50 mghz and MB for the clock and speed. And a few tenths of a volt for juice.
 It would not run. I was running Unique Heaven To test it..

I would like to run a program that lets you do a split screen to show the difference between stock and OC setting on the split screen video. But I don't have the split screen program.

Gigabyte has their own video card utility, like evga and others have theirs.

I tried some new settings:

with 3D mark  benchmarking
(through Steam, free version of 3DMark)

it increased about 50 on the score without OC the video.
