Is My Phenom II x6 1045t bottlenecking my 560 ti?

My main question is, is my Phenom II x6 1045t @ 2.7 GHz bottlenecking my Zotac GTX 560 Ti OC. I see people running their games maxed out with completely stable FPS, mine IS maxed out, but it lags sometimes when there seems to be heavy processes going on. I can't overclock this CPU because it's an OEM build from HP. Specifically the HPE-410f. (Don't worry, I got a new Corsair 700 watt PSU)

Thanks!

Normally it shouldn't... The 1045T should be able to handle a 560Ti. The 1045T isn't that great in games though! How much average FPS are you getting on games and which games are you playing?

Well, i play BF3 on the default clock 2.8 with my HD 6950 and no problem at all, the game has been clearly depending on GPU not CPU so you should be fine even @ Ultra and get a solid 35-40 FPS.

Edit: I'm OCing my GPU, try to OC yours a little bit higher.

He said he wont be able to overclock! :)

@ hell_storm2004
OCing the GPU doesn't matter if it's in an OEM or Customized built PC.
As you're only OCing via software which is done pretty easy with eyes closed.

I tried overclocking it from 850 to 950 mhz, raised the voltage from 1000 to 1025 mV and the Piece of *** blue screened. The temps are fine and I get great airflow with all my extra fans. Excude my language, but i'm reading clocks of well over 1 ghz or at 1 ghz on here. It's too late to take it back now, so I just have to suck it up I guess. It's alright for what I'm trying to do. Even though this junk artifacts all the time.

(That's mostly a rant, I appologize. I just tested for artifacts on ATITool, and it blue screens. It makes me really angry.)

What resolution are you playing at?

I max OC my GPU to 920/925 MHZ with 1400 memory clock, your voltage is too low. i set the voltage to 1149 mv, try this voltage and you should be stable.

I play Battlefield at 1440x900 at 75Hz, every other game at 1680x1050 at 60Hz

Nah, it's alright, I'm scared to raise my voltage any more than it already is, my card is running at 45C idle. 67C max load. That's too warm idle in my opinion, so I don't want to raise it any more. I'm also scared of completely destroying the card, because I do NOT have another $250 lying around.

Sorry, i forgot that you own a GTX 560Ti not HD 6950.

Yes your current voltage seems to be alright, you should get more (about 980 MHz) at this voltage. Try to lower shader & memory clock lower bit if you're OCing them.

Also, GTX 560ti is superb @ 1680 x 1050, you can max out the game at this res. No need to lower your resolution.

Actually it does matter. OEM machines have cheap boards and cheap power supplies.

Your just asking to blow power regulation circuits and overload PSU's by OCing an OEM machine.

@ Falcon
We are not talking about OCing the machine. The GPU OC is independent from the MOBO, has got it's own PCP and the OP has 700W PSU.

Please guys, read first.

hey,
i have a 1045t running with a new hd 7850..
-idle is 45c, but that's according to bios.
-i just installed AC freezer7 and no noticeable temp changes
-i also have lags in performance w/ d3 esp
-im not happy with the temp range, but ive heard the bios can be wrong on my board
