Originally posted by: purestone I recently bought a fx 6350 and I am having problems when I am gaming.I get alot of lag when I am playing BF4 and "other games." I didn't have this problem with my last Cpu Phenom 2 965 3.4Mhz quad core. I updated the BIOS to 2103 before installing the FX 6350.
Can someone please help me!

I put an FX-6300 @4.5GHz in my 16 yr. old sons machine and benchmarks loved it. He was running a Phenom 965 quad @4.0GHz. Battlefield 4 on the other hand does not like the FX-6300. All other games work fine but BF4 will stutter and get lag spikes like crazy. I tried playing with the Nvidia control panel and changed some settings that really reduced the lag but its not a fix.
Open Nvidia Control Panel.
Select manage 3d settings.
select BF4 from the drop down box.
Scroll to the bottom and change the vertical sync option to 'adaptive'
The fix I found was to put the Phenom quad back in and now all is fine.
