Hi, I am facing spikes n skips when i toggle the map while playing dota 2. otherwise the game runs smooth. it never happened when i had 2 gb ram and i3. now i have i5 -3450 @ 3.10Ghz 3.50Ghz. Giga byte motherboard H77-DS3H. with corsair xms 4gb ram. other games run smooth like dishonored.
I dont know what might be causing the issue . can any one help?
also note that i have a 460 watt cooler master PSU. also about the drivers . i havent installed the intel vga ones but only the nvidia ones for my GPU. and i dont have drivers ( SM bus controller and Universal Serial bus(USB) controller installed). i dont know if thats an issue aswell. please help
hmm, ok panning is either you're low on vram or your ram is having troubles.
How much vram did the 560 come with. Check if it's getting filled up completely (close to 100%). If yes, decrease your resolution.
As far as I can tell the XMS module you got (you gave a wrong serial by the way), is a 1.65V module. The fact that it's running tells me that the motherboard probably underclocked it and it's possibly running under spec. You'll need to go into BIOS and verify the settings. A better option is to actually get 1.5V memory module that doesn't require undervolting in order to work with your board.
lowering the res didnt solve the issue. I think i can play on full res cuz my specs can support it . it shudnt e an issue. i dont know what might be the exace issue. either something isnt compatible with the other or its a driver issue or somthing of the sort.
