Problems experiencing: Lag inside games, any game. (Steam: alan's wake, counter stike source, red faction armageddon, saints row the Third) Also Origin /crytek (Crysis 2)

More detailed explain of what happens:
The lag happends after 1 - 2 minutes gaming, then a 30 seconds to 40 seconds freez. But I can move my mouse, press windows key, and use alt-tab. After I do alt-tab again with 20 sec lag, the game continues again; so I can play again. and then after a random while, 2-4 minutes -> the same happends.

NOTE! It's a fresh install of WIndows 7 64 bit,  Fully updated (Windows Update) Bios updated using latest bios update.

Graphics Card
Amd Radeon Graphix Processor, Radeon R9 270x

AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History

NOw I have: AMD_13.30_RC3_Win8.1_Win8_Win7_Jan13_2014

Also tried: AMD Catalyst 13.11 Beta9.5 Driver for Windows,

I tried AMD catalyst driver, updated it to 13.10. Still got the lag. Uninstalled it given the advise from the sticky, and installed it using another site:

(This advise was given somewhere in this forum, I can't seem to find it again) *This did not Fix my problem*; I downloaded these;


  • Graphic Card Driver Catalyst Software Suite
  • Graphic Card Driver (Optional) HydraVision Package
  • VGA Utility TriXX OC Utility


Still no fix for my problem.

Operating System
Windows 7, 64 bit. updated using windows update

Issue Details
- Lag inside games, screen freezes, but I can still use my mouse, use alt-tab, use ctr+alt+del to kill process.

- in-game graphix: ultra ofcourse with this setting*** Look below ****

Motherboard or System Make & Model
ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 
I used these drivers to update my motherboard 

Power Supply

Seasonic S12II-Bronze 430W

Display Device(s) and Connection(s) Used
- LG 24 inch wide screen W2452T lcd Monitor
- DVI-S from monitor to PC

Applications and Games problems occuring

- watching anime, streaming for example
- playing games see on top for example. 

CPU Details
AMD FX-6300
- overclock: only that is already done by the manufactuering, which is on "auto"  if i look on UEFI/bios inter face.

Motherboard BIOS Version
- 10/02/13 20:40:04 Ver: 04.06.05

System Memory Type & Amount
2 x 4gb of module " Crucial Ballistix Tactical BLT2C4G3D1608ET3LX0CEU

Additional Hardware
- SSHD: Seagate ST1000DX001, 1TB

Additional Details
- I used MBAM to scan, nothing found
- I have NOD32, ran scans, nothing found 

- NO memtest done

I tried the newest " beta "  drivers, as suggested in other topic, 

This did   N O T  fix my problem 

- I Have done BIOS update; Driver Genius pro scan, saying:
out of date drivers:

AMD South bridge Drivers
Realtek High Definition Audio Drivers
Amd SOUDH Bridge Chipset Drivers
Amd Radeon Desktop Video Card Drivers
Realtek Ethernet Controller Drivers

(But I cannot fix it, since it's not a paid/ premium version of Driver genius)

But Manual update still gives these "driver updates" and using Device Manager -> right click -> says it's all updated.  I do this using the automatically search online option.

Extra details:

From the motherboard site/drivers, look up
I used: Trixx installer 
12-12 Win7 Win8 32-64 hydravision
AMD Catalys 13.10 WHQL
From site:
Please note if you click this, you will download it!

That is what I have now, I already tried befor this one:
13-12 win7 win8 64 dd ccc whql
Please note if you click this, you will download it! 

What I find curious is, that the program of amddriver does not find my Graphix Card. 

Extra info:  Enable overdrive is not on, I see this using CCC of catalyst. Performance > Graphix Overdrive  " Enable graphix overdrive "  / was not checked. Enable manual fan control /was not checked.

Question 2:I wonder if this will work for me?

question 3 which solution in here would work for me? given the specs I have given?


Question 4: will this fix work for my vid card ?



Question 5:


Interesting fix here given by/ Originally posted by: samsai /


But I'm not very savvy with technical, to assume (too scared) that this is okay for me to test out on my specs. Could someone confirm if I could just try it out? Since messing up with Bios... can do a lot of harm..

Thanks for the information. But may I ask where did you get this fix bios. On the official site I do not see it. I see only a new bios for 3 gigabytes of memory cards. Sorry for my English only.

This updated BIOS is given by the gigabyte(TW) technical team after my 10days Q&A and non-stop pushing them.
Up to now (after 4 days), no flickering and hang when playing LOL.

While waiting on an answer, I will uninstall again, and install this version. commented here, by this person on this topic.
