  1. The only 'science' I have applied, is my own eyes....and almost double the FPS performance across all my sims. Also...no more stutter...the pause, move, pause, move of the animation of the plane in flight over terrain. I'm truly not trying to convert anybody...just reported an amazing development on and the use of my system. For myself...from now until dust...I'll purchase a CPU with the native GHz that I would LIKE to own...as well as the Memory Mhz and GPU (whatever). I was astounded, and still am...with the largest smile on my face, with each firing up of my sims. Cheers!
  2. "To use overclocking to chase a benchmark, or a high frame rate, very often results in a very small return in exchange for a high degree of stress on the PC hardware." What Nick said....
  3. I totally concur...so will be getting the highest CPU Ghz/Thread Count I can afford, or wish to afford, and the same now for the other two bad boys...GPU and Memory. No more overclocking now, or into the future. All these years, where I thought I was garnering (for free...WHAT A LAUGH ON ME!!!!!) greater FPS than what running the CPU at manufacturer's rated speed, and in fact...was cutting nearly HALF of what my system could have offered me. I am so kicking myself right now! I'm getting just over 60 FPS peak in P3D and XP11. In MSFS at Ultra, 45-47. No complaints there! Nope...no more
  4. BTW, John....with how P3D v5.1 HF(3) is running...and having such a blast with it...(the visuals looks so good --->especially<--- nVidia Waterworks 2), that I am totally no longer stressing out over MSFS. I haven't flown it since the P3D new install, because I consider (with such great FPS performance and visuals...) P3D v5.1 HF(3) as my 'new flight simulator toy', LOLOLOLOL. That's how impressed I am...with it...and with L.M. A great running P3D v5.1 (latest HOTFIX version) is a beauteous sight, indeed (large smile!). Everything works...instrument panels work (and all th
  5. I'm using my Dell U3415W, which is 3440x1440, so almost a full 4K. That is what the latest v5.1 HF3 is rendering out to...with a range of 37-66 depending on the scenery below me, but with a usually mean average of 44/45. So dips to 37, peaks (FPS of 66) but normal hitting of 44/45. Since dropping down to my normal Intel and Crucial O.E.M. frequency speeds for both my CPU and Memory Modules, my system is really FPS kick-butt! Ain't touching another thing! If I even look, like I'm going to bring up my BIOS...slap my hand away! LOL.... I'm also running nVidia 457.30 and I also have confi
  6. I've been flying the last two days, in P3D v5.1 HF3, and am getting stunning performance. Having a blast...and as you say...E.A. looks really good now, and I notice that there is no more the death-haze everywhere...I've seen it build and abate. I have visibility of around 30 miles when the weather calls for it, and Damian said that you DO need to load in the Departure and Arrival airport codes, into their Flight Plan Filing mask...for that lets Active Sky be prepared for the Metars...and to bring them to realization. If you don't (at the moment) file a flight plan internally in P3D Active
  7. Right W2DR, quite easy to make a few BIOS clicks...but if you read my latest post, I am getting just INSANE FPS and smooth animation performance at O.E.M. rated BIOS settings. So...happy to just keep it all 'stock'!!!! This afternoon, I was running my i7-975 Extreme (4 core)/EVGA FTW 1070 8 Gig powering the latest P3D v5.1 HOTFIX, and was getting that high 46 FPS (with peak spikes to 62), I was posting about. I had E.A. on...had a flight plan in P3D Active Sky....and the clouds were just as good as MSFS. In fact, I really started comparing both ground textures at the FL's..and truly, wi
  8. There are legions of flight simmers who have and do. I was one of 'em. Most do it, for the sole purpose of 'squeezing' out as many FPS they can, when running 'x' sim. The 'great laugh' I have enjoyed this week, was seeing that I was getting the best FPS across all my sims, at rated O.E.M running frequencies for both items that I had overclocked, namely, the CPU and System RAM. So...it's been pretty insane, this past week....in MSFS where I was getting 18-27 FPS with an overclocked system, I am now getting with the same settings, the same nVidia driver, 35-40 mean average. With the lat
  9. Running totally stock GHz frequencies on CPU, GPU, and System Memory, and garnered 10 more FPS within P3D v5.1 HF, so no performance hinderance has been seen or noted. This was a result of the hotfix current release.
  10. I'm getting better FPS (mean average), now on P3D HF 5.1, than MSFS. This means for myself, no feature cockpit problems in Commercial and Business class. I NEVER have run in the '40's before this current version! Never.
  11. I did the full install...and then uninstalled all the Orbx GLOBAL, then reinstalled them. After that...did a VERIFY on all the rest. Got great performance on the first flight. In fact, the best performance from any P3D version...from RTM, to prior to this HOTFIX. Flew P3D 5.1 HF all this afternoon...had a blast!
  12. ...has to be in my books, the best update of most any sim! This one really brings fixes and performance that can be seen with your first flight. Kudos to LM! E.A. still needs some work, but many of the reported bugs have been squashed, and most are reporting 5-10 more FPS at the same settings. Add me to that list. Went from 35 to 45 FPS at such places as Friday Harbor and KORS. This was a great fix-release! The E.A. clouds now look like clouds, but, I also noticed an increase in RAM usage. I guess, that E.A. was not rendering (as we all know.) so now it eats up a bit more RAM. Fo
  13. My overclocks never overheated either...but I have seen just fabulous performance with all my sims, since setting all (CPU and System Memory) to their O.E.M. default GHz speeds. Keeping now at default.
  14. I am absolutely STUNNED this afternoon, folks... I just dropped out of P3D v5.1...with no loss of FPS of any kind...but the only reported loss, is animation stutter. Too bad, I had not done this, or thought to do this, years ago! Any and all animation stutter, micro, or pretty announced,...was in fact, due to an overclocked system. I'm still in disbelief... P3D v5.1 is running so smooth....no jerk, no micro stutter....and full right, all the way! I do NOT need to replace my present CPU, or GPU. I needed to drop my system to rated, CPU and Memory speeds that ar
  15. Just ended my 'non system overclock' MSFS flight...WOW! Now, will be running every flight sim I own...to test out how they will deliver with no overclock! Yep, am I excited at this revelation! Wow....:) Now (slapping hands together...), onto P3D v4.5, 5.1, XP11 and AS2! Let's see what they reveal....non overclocked! Later....
  16. The back ground story: My CPU is a i7-975 Extreme four core model. Its native Ghz is at 3.73 GHz. For years...well, pretty much ever since I purchased and installed it, I had over-clocked this CPU to run at 4.4 Ghz. I also boosted my memory two classifications in speed, (I can't remember now...but I did...) so...both CPU and System Memory was over-clocked. Ok...operated my system like that for the sole purpose of harvesting as many FPS I could, over every flight sim I owned. For years... For about a year...I have been having some issues with after shut
  17. Right...you could always do that. For myself...I fire up MSFS for what is to date good about it...and for what is not, or lacking, I also fire up P3D and XP11. So...no baby out with the bathwater...I enjoy all three for what they can offer, as I type this...
  18. Well, the present 'word' is that I again, have MSFS running like a top, on my current i-7 975 Extreme (four core)/EVGA FTW GTX 1070 (8GB)/12 GB's System RAM/Alienware 11B BIOS/ (over-clock RAM, over-clock CPU, CPU running in (8 core HyperThread) Running MSFS at full default Ultra, but with HDR10 set to '0' (turned off) in the User.cfg and with the above suggested set-up of the nVidia driver mask, am getting a very good (on average) FPS readout of 32-35, with no FPS limiting. That's about the top end FPS performance for my mentioned system, but you only need to maintain 30 fps to k
  19. They reside under the MSFS default presets...go to WEATHER....click on where you see for instance, LIVE WEATHER, and you can scroll down them. They are great! Really amps up the immersion...especially RAIN, where you climb out between the layers of scud at around 6,000 feet..and the cloudscape is just stunning!
  20. ...and what is that? The Weather Preset Pro.... ...that's what! I just picked it up...and the WOW-Factor on the RAIN preset was worth the cost of the entire purchase. All of the pre-sets give so much added value immersion, and that you can be coming onto final, and decide..."hey...how would this be under rain, or rain 'n blow, or the white stuff....drop the menu...select...and you are there... I didn't even know, (in MSFS) that if it rains enough while on the tarmac....PUDDLES of water start forming. (Big smile, that you can't see....)!
  21. Between this, my 2nd forced full install, I am having the best post RTM experience in total with my present set up. The 'wow' factor is back! If you set up your nVidia driver to exactly as this chap recommends...the FORCE will be with you, Luke....
  22. When I installed for the 2nd time...I also got the choice of my listed drives. I re(2)installed again to the drive I did the original RTM. Also...wanted to mention, that whatever that added 10.18 GB download was....has really notched up the performance--->. Ultra Setting visuals and FPS! I had three (3) downloads the one required content, then the latest 1.14 GB patch #6, and then this out-of-nowhere 10.18 GB update, on my second run of the 2nd install. Did you see that 10.18 GB 2nd patch as well? Just before you might say that that was my premium deluxe, nope...got that wit
  23. Interesting, yesterday morning.... so...I started my 2nd time 97 GB full install. It did that...and then I had to install all my Content, which was 37 GB...and THEN...I had to install the 1.14 latest patch. Then...when running it again, for the second time...and it CHECKED UPDATES...another patch...which was 10.18 GB's over 35 files...downloaded and installed. I wonder if in downloading the full install, it triggered a not-supposed-to-be-out-in-the-wild patch of that 10.18 GB!?!??! Dunno...but it downloaded off of the MS servers...
