750w psu cooler master
120 intels ssd hard disk
cooler master 212 evo
sabertooth 990fx
amd fx6100 six core processor
60hz monitor X193HQ

I will normal lag in BATTLEFIELD 3 on high in Border map and Khang island ... Gulf of oman OF COURSE :( I didnt download porn ............. :sweat:

Any ideas ?

If even 4GHz isn't noticeably better than about 3GHz, then I doubt that 4.5GHz will be much better at all.
Double and triple check temps with multiple temp reporting programs. Some of them are defective with some systems and which ones don't work seems random, so it's best to go with the temps that are reported by the most programs on your system unless they look ridiculous.

Also, what system memory kit are you using? Are you motherboard drivers and BIOS all up to date? You might want to try making sure that all other drivers, no mater how seemingly insignificant, are up to date too. Even mouse drivers can cause bad lag if they are faulty.

You could also try running a good disk defrag program, running some anti-malware scans, and...

depends on you really. 60hz monitors using vsync will drastically cripple your mouse movement if enabled. Vsync, visually looks better, eliminating screen tearing to allow the monitor to keep up, but with an induced lag on your mouse, it's precision becomes notably slower to allow syncing with the monitor.

120hz should nullify the lag effect quite considerably allowing vsync for better visual smoothness on screen.
 
You could try overclockign the CPU if you play multi-player in BF3. It's not weak, but it's no powerhouse at stock.

As for the monitor's refresh rate, 120Hz is only important if you use standard V-Sync AFAIK. I think that regardless of V-Sync, it is smoother than 60Hz so long as the graphics and CPU can keep up in the frame rates, but I wouldn't go as far as calling it important based on that.

I off Sync but still get laggy on high in battlefield 3 ... so the problem of laggy cause is my monitor ?

Yeah , I tried to overclock my CPU 3.31 ghz to 4.01 ghz but battlefield 3 still same laggy ... Like didnt improve anything . can 120hz monitor make gaming more smooth or wont ? :eek:

I set settings on [ high ] not [ custom ] ... beside that , my old laptop had a 540m will not lag 0.1s while move the screen around or running around OR talk in TESV sometime , but my gtx 670 will.... That is sucks. :fou:

No, like blazorthon says, if the pc isn't powerful enough to push the frame rate of a demanding game such as battlefield above 120fps then you wont be getting the most out of a 120hz monitor itself alone as the computer needs to fluently drive the frame rate to display at the levels of 120hz for better visual.

Although if you're achieving in the vicinity greater than 60fps, then an 120hz monitor will look better without vsync enabled compared to 60hz monitor with vsync also off.

So in hindsight, an 120hz screen is an investment for the future.
 
Are you using the most recent graphics drivers? Are you running anything intensive in the background? Have you made sure that temps aren't causing throttling in your graphics and/or CPU?

If nothing else, it is possible that your graphics card is defective, but poor performance is a rare defect.

Yes , 310.70 nvidia driver . I turned off background changing too . My temperature below 55 while gaming I confirmed . :(
Edit : I use Ai suite II to check temperature , nt guess .

Its probably your processor, the 6100 is fairly terrible for gaming without serious overclocking.

We talking about 4.5ghz or better here...

:ouch: OMG , I tried overclock to 4.5 ghz just now and restart pc . BUT suddenly my screen become blue and auto restart and stucked at starting window :ouch: I am using laptop posting . :sweat:

Reset the bios, check your mobo guide on how to do so, I forget not everyone has gigabyte motherboards with dual bios. XD


Afterwards check this out:

Overclock slowly, its a gradual process finding the proper settings.

Must 4.5 ghz most out the gtx 670 ? :heink: AND I have noticed that my processor cannot go 4.5 only 4.4 -_-

You could also try running a good disk defrag program, running some anti-malware scans, and deleting any junk on your storage if you have a lot of it. Honestly, at this point I'm pretty much just throwing anything that comes to mind into light.

Yes , I just upgrade yesterday and defrag . I had ccleaner too .

Edit : I play battlefield 3 about 30 minutes and get error blue screen because i set to 4.2 ghz -_-
 
I have an i5-3570k @ 4.4GHz and a heavily overclocked 670, and run most games at 120fps and ultra settings (minus, say, supersampling, which doesn't do a thing at 1080p anyways), and I gotta tell you, I love it.

No, it's not essential for gaming, but when I go to a friends' house (bringing my desktop and peripherals, but using his 60Hz monitor), I notice definite screen / imput lag, and I get fewer kills because of it.

EDIT: Basically what I'm saying is it's one of those luxury things that only makes a difference once you've tried it, like a mechanical keyboard. I wouldn't dream of using a normal keyboard to game again; it would be like running in a pool of glue... but I didn't know that till I used a mechanical keyboard for about 2 minutes... and then tried a normal one again. You don't notice it as much when you have it - just when you lose it. (And then you miss it like hell.)

Not sure what you're trying to achieve here now, overclocking perhaps might give you an extra frames in battlefield 3 but sorry to say, an FX6100 was a poor choice for this kind of intense application.

Your video card on the otherhand 10 out of 10.

Will need to look at replacing your cpu if you want any drastic change in performance.

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/amd_fx_8150_8120_6100_and_4100_performance_review,10.html

Best you could do is either stick a Phenom II x4 980 or upgrade to FX8150 with that motherboard.

U means play with the 60hz monitor will lag ? and I know the feeling . ;)

Thanks ! I will change to Phenom II x4 980 or FX 8150 maybe .

Edit : :eek: largest resolution reduce fps ?
 
Larger resolutions DRASTICALLY reduce FPS. I mean, think about it... you're going from a million pixels to double that, or more. That's double the workload on the graphics card.

Yes, you want an i5 3570k. AMD's chips are decent if you disable the second cores per module, giving yourself more overclocking headroom, but the i5 runs great out of the box, and still overclocks like a beast.

Also yes - if you go to a 120 Hz monitor, and ever have to play at 60 for whatever reason, it will feel very very noticeably laggy.
