CPU Bottleneck???

Hey guys,

I just upgraded my GPU from a GTX 970 to a 1070Ti, I tought it would help in games (BF5 that I play right now). It's actually better but I think my CPU overclocked at 4.6Ghz(temps are on average around 60-65c, sometimes goes up to 70c on one core) is my bottleneck, it's always at 95-100% usage in BF5. I overclocked it with AI Suite, not manually for now. I play with a 27 inch monitor at 60fps 1440P. I get an average of 50 to 65 FPS in BF5. I didn't overclock my 1070Ti yet, but it doesn't even run at 100% usage, might still overclock it but I don't think it will make a big difference. Do you guys have any ideas how I can improve my FPS in game?

 

Here's my system:

Overclocking can be weird with some apps... Sometimes its better to not overclock then to overclock because of the extra stress you try and put on the system... Maybe you can try doubling your ram if you have the room, that should relieve some of the pressure on the system

Unfortunately, the quad core isn't really enough these days. You need to run windows and new releases that can leverage more cores, it's usually a bit much for a CPU like that. 1440p stresses the GPU more, but the CPU still has a job to do. How much more would you be able to overclock? If you're at the limit, consider a 4770k or 4790k off eBay.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

So you think upgrading to 32GB of RAM would help?

I could tr doing a manual overclock and go a bit higher but is it gonna be worth it? And the 4790K and 4770k they are 4 cores no? The 8 threads instead of 4 thats what would make the difference?

Yes, overclocking higher would be ideal. Try 1.18 volts with 4.8GHz and work up from there. Also, yeah those 8 threads do make a big difference. True quad cores are the ones that struggle most of the mainstream gaming CPUs.

Dunno if I trust Ebay to buy a used CPU, let say if I have 400$cad to spend which CPU would you recommend?

That's Ryzen territory, eBay is trustworthy because they have buyer protection. If you're gonna drop $400 on an upgrade then get a B450 and a Ryzen 5, with some DDR4. If you want the same motherboard,

That looks good for 70$us but they don't ship to Canada :-S  For sure I would prefer not to spend too much money so maybe prefer the used CPU option.

This oughtn't be too much over $400, maybe you could tweak it a but if you want. You've got a good motherboard currently so I'm not too sure you'd want to switch to Ryzen on a cheaper board.

Might give it a try, and for a new CPU under 400$ you would not go with intel? Don't feel like changing my mobo

I would never go new for a CPU that old, it doesn't really make sense. The value proposition is awful.

Yeah I would want to stay with my motherboard and just switch CPU and maybe upgrade my RAM.

I was running an Asus Z97-AR and a 4790k with 32GB of ram, so I know how good a system like that would be. I do think it's a good idea.

If I would go used I guess the i7 4770K or 4790K. For the RAM what would you suggest me? I have 16GB but I think its a 1600 RAM not sure

You can check in CPUz what the speed is, but if you get a 1600 kit you'd be able to overclock your current kit if it's 1333

Let say I want to upgrade my RAM and don't want to keep the one I have because I would want faster what would you recommend for a 32GB kit?

I don't believe there is a kit of 2x16GB of DDR3, and if there is it may not work, I think the max ram per channel is 16 GB on the majority of consumer boards.

Ok so 4x8GB of DDR3 RAM which one should I go for?

So you think upgrading to 32GB of RAM would help? 

yes if the cpu runs at 100% you should be able to atleast create some room there… your game would improve too but this is more an experienced guess then anything else… If i had a game where my cpu would run at 100% i would lower some graphic settings from the in-game menu and maybe try and see if i could use another windows power plan: high performance or ultimate performance to see if that would make any difference . 

another thing i would do is take pictures of the statistics provided by msi afterburner for example to see how the game performs without o.c.  (though from your story i can conclude you have it always on o.c.) and with o.c. and what the gains are by ocing … I'm not a big fan of ocing … I am a fan of trying different kinds of hardware. As @fasauceome suggested maybe try getting another cpu which fits into your motherboard with more power. I for instance swapped an i7 920 ( first gen quadcore 8 ht ) earlier this year for a x5650 with 6 cores and 12 treads that was really a big gain in performance but if the prices are still really high, for the old 4th gen cpu's then you might indeed consider getting a ryzen cpu. I believe next month there already bringing out their third line of cpu's so that is a nice way to get a real good cpu for cheap. Still if you can get a 4th gen 8 core used for a couple of bucks or maybe even a 5th gen ( that would fit too right in your socket ) then that might be the cheapest bet\quickest way to some gains :)

I've yet to see a good deal on one because they're a little rare (on account of being pretty unpopular) so they're pricey. Still, stranger things have happened, so if it becomes a reality then there's no point in not getting a 5775c.

Let say I want to upgrade my RAM and don't want to keep the one I have because I would want faster what would you recommend for a 32GB kit?

You can check in CPUz what the speed is, but if you get a 1600 kit you'd be able to overclock your current kit if it's 1333

I've yet to see a good deal on one because they're a little rare (on account of being pretty unpopular) so they're pricey. Still, stranger things have happened, so if it becomes a reality then there's no point in not getting a 5775c.

yes if the cpu runs at 100% you should be able to atleast create some room there… your game would improve too but this is more an experienced guess then anything else… If i had a game where my cpu would run at 100% i would lower some graphic settings from the in-game menu and maybe try and see if i could use another windows power plan: high performance or ultimate performance to see if that would make any difference . 

another thing i would do is take pictures of the statistics provided by msi afterburner for example to see how the game performs without o.c.  (though from your story i can conclude you have it always on o.c.) and with o.c. and what the gains are by ocing … I'm not a big fan of ocing … I am a fan of trying different kinds of hardware. As @fasauceome suggested maybe try getting another cpu which fits into your motherboard with more power. I for instance swapped an i7 920 ( first gen quadcore 8 ht ) earlier this year for a x5650 with 6 cores and 12 treads that was really a big gain in performance but if the prices are still really high, for the old 4th gen cpu's then you might indeed consider getting a ryzen cpu. I believe next month there already bringing out their third line of cpu's so that is a nice way to get a real good cpu for cheap. Still if you can get a 4th gen 8 core used for a couple of bucks or maybe even a 5th gen ( that would fit too right in your socket ) then that might be the cheapest bet\quickest way to some gains :) 

 

I've been looking around and the price for a used i7 4770K or i7 4790K are around 250$-300$ Canadian dollar, so around 220$ US. Don't know if that is good.
