i know the fx 8120 is not that great for gaming i have it running at 4.2ghz right now i am using to play Flight Sim x (FSX) I do not get FPS anywhere near what most people with addons like ngx rex gex mega sceneries my FPS with ngx over addon sceneries like mega sceneries is 10 below i think it is my video card any suggestions here are my specs

Hi man
Microsoft flight simulator with a lot of add-ons can kill any CPU or GPU
if you are using Rex and X cities and PMDG planes you will get a 10 fps on the airport
I have a 670-OC my fps without PMDG planes reach 50-60 fps with rex
once I choose the PMDG-747 I get 15-18 fps
so be careful with the add-ons especially if they are cracked you will have poor performance no matter what is your PC.

well to get it to 4.2ghz all i did raise the multiplier disable a few things in Bios raise cpu voltage in bios to 1.36 n LLC to extreme

Yeah which for photo editing would improve performance for gaming a higher bus frequency would improve frame rates try raising the bus to 300 and the multiplier to 13 it will give you 3.9ghz and better performance for frame rates than the overclock you have now

Keep all the other settings you have for your current overclock but just change the bus to 300 and the multiplier to 13 and then run a program like prime95 to check stability if thats stable and your holding a good temperature then you can raise the multiplyer to 14 and you would have a 4.2ghz overclock but make sure you monitor your temps and run prime95 for 20 mins to half an hour you will know by then if its stable

well right now i run prime95 blend test for 2 hours on my settings n the highest temp i got was 58c cpu temp n 45c core temp i have an NH-D14 NOCTUA do i need to change ram voltage or timings which i never done like i said right now i have at 4.2ghz on multiplier had to raise the cpu voltage in bios to 1.36 n LLC to extreme n disable a few things on bios
