I wish you all a good day!
First of all, excuse me for my english! I'm Hungarian and not using my english knowledge often.
I recently bought a new FX8350 CPU(and a chieftec TX750 PSU) to change the old FX6100. Before the replacement there was no problem to run Battlefield 3 on medium-high settings with my Sapphire 7850 OC 2GB and 8GB RAM. But ever since i put the new 8350 in, the game is periodically(every 2-3 min.) slows down(i have like 10-15 FPS) and the gun sound is disappears. After like 5-8 sec. the game returns to normal FPS, and the sound comes back with the last shot sound. This happens with the latest 13.4 catalyst too. I suspect that something is wrong with the processor. Because with the old FX6100 i had no problem at all(constantly played at 50-70 FPS). I noticed that when this FPS drop comes in, my CPU load is going crazy to 90-100% usage on all cores! I have no other problems(so far) with the CPU, just with this game.
My specs are:
MOBO: Asrock 970 Extreme3
CPU: AMD FX8350
VGA: Sapphire 7850 OC 2GB
RAM: 2x4 GB
PSU: Chieftec TX750W
I've managed to monitor the system while i play some BF3. Here is the link for the .csv file on google docs:
This is the report file from HWiNFO64. For some reason(as i see), the cores suddenly(during the game) dropping down to 1396mHz from 4091mHz. I have no idea why... And probably that causes the fps drop to 10-15 fps.
Thank you for any suggestion and advice!
