    Is Vsync enabled in graphics card settings? It could also be that the graphics settings are too high for your graphics card, so that it becomes the bottleneck, not the CPU.

    Yes, I did have v-sync enabled, but when I turned it off I got only 1-3 more fps.

    The program didnt do anything, it just turned my DRAM frequency into a decimal.

    But also don't forget, the

    What I had ment is it increases the bandwith on the graphic card.

    By OCing your CPU.

    I just set it back to normal. There was basically no performace increase, and all I had was a hot piece of metal in my computer. Besides, the vnf4 ultra isn't a good board for overclocking.
