Recently with my new built, I been experiencing a bit of periodic video lag when playing Hero of Newerth. It gives me video lag even in the lowest graphic setting and it is not a constant lag. I am running with this driver at default settings. Any information why this is happening?
Anything running in the background? You playing audio? You downloading anything?
Does it do this lag on any other games?
You said video lag - is this a video played during the game or is this gaming lag?
Are you overclocking the card?
If the obvious stuff is fine - whats the temp of the 4870? Run GPUz during the game and check the temps. A 4870 can run hot. Is the fan pretending to be a whole house vacuum cleaner? Do you set the fan to a higher speed because you need a whole house vacuum?
Temp - Around 50 Degree
Nothing running on background Nothing downloading or paying
Have not tested on other games since I don't play many graphic intense games
It lags when gaming but not exactly the kind caused by a slow spec since I was able to run this on a way poorer build without any problems
Fan is running on 30%, have not customized the speed
I am not overclocking the card
