currently I got installed and running this one: (Modded+signed Intel RST drivers v188.8.131.526). From the first page of modded Intel AHCI storage drivers. Is there a faster driver that is somewhat as easy to install instead. The newer ones are better ? These are my Mainboard informations: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/X58_ProE/Specification. It supports only Sata 2.0 but i bought a pci-e to sata 3.0 card that will get here soon if that does anything. . -Windows 10 Home 64. -8 Gb ram single channel 1600 Mhz. -Xeon X5650 @3.2 Ghz -radeon rx 560 2gb -Western Digital 10ezex
I really want to play the new call of duty. There is some problem that the game will decrease fps after each round but I dont think it’s my thermals. I have a big cpu cooler. A cooler on the south bridge and monitored temps. Iho temps are 75 degrees celsius.
(I think it got better after installing the first one but i have to do more testing today on last day of beta. sadly i have no reference speeds from before).
@xplives i know i REALLY need another ram stick. The game is 40 gb. It was the open beta for Call Duty Modern Warfare (new game). After Changing any Graphic setting even lowering resolution = constant fps drop. Playing more than 2 games = constant fps drop.
Correct. And I don’t know what this means >> srive
Your speeds look normal for a HDD. What motherboard do you have? Be sure you have the HDD on the first or second Intel port
You need SSD and more memory, or a more modern motherboard (X58 and it’s CPU’s are over 10+ years old)
If you want the RAID rom in BIOS and RAID drivers to matter, you can switch to single disk RAID Mode. Before you do that, you’ll need to make the follow registry changes, then reboot to BIOS and set to RAID, then in windows load Intel RST Driver from your motherboard download page or whatever is suggested as better performing one from here on this site’s performance threads.
Make switch between all IDE/AHCI/RAID modes by changing the “Start” Values in these registry keys to 0
@Lost_N_BIOS srive speeds what have i done. I found and installed the recommended driver for x58 boards ICH10 and it is kinda faster now unless i imagine things. It’s this one v184.108.40.2061. Performance was only really bad like this in Call Of Duty and it was an open beta so maybe they will fix that. Defenitely getting a ssd. Until then this works i think. I would want to use raid but before i buy 2x ssd i first need ram like 2 more sticks as recommended
40GB for the full installation okay then it might be possible on your X58 to push it to the max.
I would max out all 6 memory slots with 8GB sticks. So you’ll need 5 more which will add another 40GB of RAM.
Then create a 40GB Ramdrive for the entire COD MW installation which will give your OS 8GB of wiggle room. I usually use Z: for my Ramdrive letter.
A better upgrade is if 16GB ECC Registered Server RAM stick if it does work in your MB I’d get that instead and get 3 sticks for 48GB (16GB x3) + 8GB original = 56GB. I’d buy one 16GB stick at a time to make sure it works and detects the full 16GB then buy more of the same type and don’t mix brands / speeds.
If the installation program let’s you select the destination path and directory call it. Z:\CODMW<br /> After it is installed fully you should copy the entire Z:\CODMW\ to your hard drive as a backup.
Every time you reboot the system you will have to remember to recopy the entire CODMW folder back from the hard drive to the Ramdrive.
Any Saved Games Files will need to be copied to the hard drive for storage so you don’t lose your place.
If it’s multiplayer and online this might be useful for remembering your login profile details.
This beats any SSD out there because nothing is faster than your RAM not even NVMe can touch it.
If you will be holding onto that X58 as long as possible wait for 2021 or when Sapphire Rapids 7nm is released with DDR5 and PCIe 5.0. Then buy a new computer and you’ll be drooling with 256GB of RAM and run the latest COD in pure RAM without any lag.
If you do notice any slowdowns or hiccups check the Task Manager to see if your CPU% on each core is at 100% or near max then you need to upgrade the CPU. If all your 6 Cores / 12 Threads are comfortably peaking in the 85% or less usage then it’s your GPU that needs to be replaced. Since you’re using Windows 10 any graphics card such as GTX 1160Ti or higher would probably be better than what you are using now and you can still keep using the same motherboard and CPU.
If you’re on a tight budget I’d say get at least 8GB of extra ram or 16GB more recommended for at least 24GB total RAM and that should fix any OS causing the lag and buy a GTX 1660Ti or higher model within your budget for any potential graphics card bottleneck. Don’t waste money on any SSD or another hard drive as these wouldn’t help your problem.
I like how you think but it’s not possible for me rightnow to do this until next month. Generally ram drives are pretty interesting especially for my old mobo. i really dont have any big unfixable problems even with this chipset it’s so old 10 years. i can get high fps in any game but when it comes to these shader loading in new games my cheap drive just gives up. thanks for your advices i just need to invest a bit more in this system.
Get 128GB or 240-256GB SSD, you can find cheap now, usually $65-100 If you do end up getting more memory make sure it’s the exact same model, otherwise it will be a pain mixing higher amounts of memory on X58 (NB is already too hot ) If not exact model at least try to get same size, speed, and timings. Then you’ll have a better chance of mixed memory compatibility.
