Some of my games are lagging quite badly with GTX 680, especially Battlefield 3 and Saints Row 3.
I get like 30-40 fps in Battlefield 3 when playing in multiplayer. I am playing on ultra settings, but lowering them to high or medium doesn't really help, so it is kinda frustrating. I have seen that people get like 60 fps almost all the time so...
Graphics card: Gtx 680 4Gb vram
Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1055T Processor (6 CPUs), ~2.8GHz
System Model: GA-870A-UD3
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
So, thanks already for trying to help me.
PS: If you want to see something more, just ask me
well on a stock cooler I would stick with my low suggestion of ~3.3 and monitor the temperatures continuously while adding load.
Really what you want is to get a proper cooler, they need not be expensive, arctic freezer pro 7 is the cheapy of choice, but others are viable too.
With a good air cooler you may get to 4GHz or so, it depends on a lot of factors.
Temperature should stay under 62 (official max operating temp) or so full load. AMD CPU's obviously don't take the heat as well as intel (which some are speced to operate at up to 100C, like my i7-2720qm)
I have i7 CPU wich is pretty new and also 12GB of RAM and GTX 680 4Gb and having issues with recording using Bandicam. It is lagging much more than with my GTX 570 for some reason. Actually with GTX 570 it is almost smooth with lowest possible graphics in the game. I tried every setting in the game and Nvidia control panel but still unable to clear out what is going on. In the game itself enabling Vertical Sync helps a bit but has no effect when recording. I tested out these two video cards on the same computer and 570 brought up greater results. I do not really know what to do because I hoped GTX 680 will improve my gaming experience and recording as well but it is the other way around. Even GTX 680 shows up greater FPS results then GTX 570 but background in the game is lagging. Please advice if you have and suggestions.
