What settings for Radeon HD

by borkoborko39 / September 19, 2016 10:36 AM PDT

Hi i just bought computer and played cs:go and works really well with 160fps but i thought the video card may be overclocked and i dont want it overclock until i get some fans and changed some settings in Radeon HD Manager and now when i play CS:GO it runs for a while and then the game closes. I have Intel Xeon E5420, Radeon HD 7670 and 4 Ram also this is desktop.

What magic is this? 160 FPS?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / September 19, 2016 11:02 AM PDT

What monitor is this? Almost all the monitors at the office are 60 Hz so why the extra 100? Where do they get displayed?

Try higher settings as you seem to not be pushing the GPU hard enough.

Now the game closing could be a card or part in need of heatsink cleaning or compound but that's not what I read here.

I've never seen a 1280x1024 at 160FPS.

What make and model? I find some gamers run at ludicrous frame rates and well that's good for the industry as they have overbought the GPU power but hey, it's their money.

For me I'd opt for more detail in the GPU settings to move it closer to my monitor's refresh rate. Remember the discussion about more FPS than monitor Hz is well done. I'm just bringing it up as maybe you didn't know this.

Check specs. It's a 60Hz panel.

The panel rate is not changed but the input even at 75 is not showing those extra 15 frames. This is where you don't send it anything but 60 Hz and 60 FPS since more is lost.

We are treading into an oft discussed area here. I'd increase my settings to drive the FPS down but not below 60. That way I get the most out of my rig.
