hi everyone i can play games like black ops and gta4 at 60+ FPS but flight simulator x runs at about 15-40 i did play with the setting and took off the frame limiter and im guessing i might need to do some overclocking to get it running fast so heres my setup
Yes! That would do a terrific job of cooling! Much better than air cooled heatsinks. Just make sure that you use the proper recommended coolant, and not tap water. Tap water contains minerals which will get deposited on the cooling tubes thereby lowering the cooling efficiency (heat transfer). If you need to dilute the coolant per instructions if necessary, use distilled water.
SB runs pretty cool so unless your room is a sauna even a cheap air cooler is good enough to cool the cpu before you hit the multiplier wall. You can look a lot on this forum the cm 212+ is suggested. Even higher end air coolers cost less and perform as well as the h70. Take the NH D14 for instance. http://www.futurelooks.com/corsair-hydro-series-h70-hig...
ok thanks well im getting the nzxt phantom case very soon as soon as the shop has it ile set it up and let you know how it goes with the OCing (have fun with black ops god mode on zombies is wicked XD)
why would it lagg then? i cant figure it out.thanks
Set the GPU to default settings. Then set the game settings to default settings. Give it a try. You have plenty of RAM (8 GBs).
I have an i7-920 and a GTX-275 (not as good as your GPU) and COD and Flight Sim. run great. FS requires only a 1 GHz processor per their specs. Therefore, it is not your hardware, but some settings probably on the game.
