Hello fellow simmers. After sometime simply trialling and pottering over an abundance of settings I have to say.....I really do think the i7 2600k was a purchase could have done without. Gone from using 4cores (4.4Ghz 1.4v) with and without H/T enabled using the Jesus tweaks to simply 4.4Ghz 1.4v over two cores solely.
Have to say am very impressed with the results. Would almost be prepared to say this early its improved the smoothness of FSX.....any thoughts or have I simply had too much Stones Green Ginger Wine
1.4v is a bit high for a 4.4 OC.
My 4.8 OC is only 1.392v HT enabled - Ram at 6-7-6-20-1T
Running close to a pure FSX config apart from 3 entries
Smooth as silk maxed out. apart from AI which is at 40%
I use a little tool called Bill2's process manager, a great little tool. Can set affinities and auto priorities, FSX does what it does naturally sits on 4 cores no HT no affinity mask, TrackIR - ASE - Ezdok and any other addon apps are set to run on the HT cores only and because they are not intensive apps they will sit solely on the FPU's happily. Hence no CPu hits, stalls or stutters with TiR panning or weather loads.
Worth a try, I am with a lot of others out there in the belief that the Jesus tweaks degrade to improve and are more a "Placebo Effect".
But then there there is the "What works best for you" is what is best at the end of the day.
