  1. Hello peeps,

    I have a 1700 here and crosshair board chip is overclocked to 3.7ghz using a single 8gb 2133mhz stick of mem paired with a GTX780 (I know). Performance is terrible I can't maintain 60fps at 1080 high settings in Battlefield 1 other games are the same, with this 780 in my other systems (7800x-8700k) I get way better than 60fps all the time.

    Could it be the single 8gb 2133mhz stick causing the frame dips? I tried streaming a movie to my TV and playing Battlefield 1 at the same time and fps drops to 40, will try with my 1080ti and 3000mhz later but even with the 2133mhz 8gb stick performance should be better it should maintain 60fps at least.
  2. Have you tried overclocking the RAM at all? I would say that a likely cause is choking the dual channel system with a single channel setup. What BIOS revision are you using? That may help a lot as well.

    Yes I tried but can't get it over 2133mhz, umm not sure what bios revision I'll check and get back to you.

    For starters lets get some better information from you, half of what you're saying doesn't make enough sense.
    What is the model name and serial number of the ram please, also the model name and serial number of the gtx 1080 card.
    Once we get that then we will have a better idea of what you got and why you are having fps problems in games.

    Doesn't make sense Hmm I thought I was pretty clear.. Its a Team Dark 8gb 2133mhz stick, I wasn't using a GTX1080 I was using a GTX780.

    The model name of the gtx780 please, just a heads up I am trying to help you out by getting this info from you.
    If you don't want to provide me or anyone else proper information about your parts.
    It may not be looked at carefully or fixed properly with the wrong information or no information keep that in mind.
    For some reason or what not your memory stick is limited on OC.
    This one has much better cas latency and better voltage, so being on that asus board.
    I would imagine you could do better at oc if you wanted to and better in game pvps.

    I didn't mean to come off as rude sorry. Its an Asus Poseidon GTX780 not overclocked, I will try and push the processor further and attempt overclocking memory again.

    Alright for the gpu clock speed it shouldn't be this slow, coming from asus directly.
    Have a look at the specs page then look at my default clock speed this is where you want your gpu to be at.
    That maybe part of the problem of why your fps maybe dragging from time to time.
    Ask them what safe oc speed would be recommended for that gpu of yours.
    This weak but nice looking gt card shouldn't be able to perform your card I am using it as a quick reference.

    If you can afford it over time this is the kind of beast you want inside your computer build.

    I will check and get back to you. This is my second system I have an 8700k and 1080ti I had x99/x299 systems but I sold them and built this 8700k system and this 1700 system.

    With the same 8gb 2133mhz stick and 780 in my x99/5820k stock 3.3ghz x299/7800x stock 4.0ghz I achieved way more than 60fps no drops at all, this is my 3rd Asus Crosshair Hero board and second R7 1700 processor the first two boards were faulty so was the R7 1700 I think it was a memory controller because the right side ram slots didn't work.

    Even at 3.7ghz and even with a stock 780 I should be getting way more fps I'm going to overclock the crap out of the 780 tomorrow and try and hit 4.0ghz with this chip with insane voltage try overclocking memory to 2400mhz AGAIN and hope for the best.

    Thanks for the reply I appreciate it, I will get back to you Brother.

    No problem I might be wrong here, but I think the asus boards in general maybe the whole problem.
    They really aren't good for over clocking or raising voltages on anything without the whole mobo going unstable over time.
    This would be a good way to start looking, if I had your 8700k and your ram and gpu.
    This is what I would buy and set your game settings on medium high while still doing 1080p on your screen.

    I tried to get memory past 2133mhz but this module is complete ***, got the 1700 to 3.9ghz 1.350v performance is a little better I can now hit 60fps with a mix of high settings in most games now I need to chuck a 1060 6gb in there and 3000mhz ram all good.

    Are you planning on getting another 8GB? I've seen good gaming machines suffer with 8GB, especially if the user isn't careful on what's running on the computer while gaming.
