    posted a message on Memory Leak?
    From the moment I log into my computer, my memory consumption gradually increases until it maxes out and my computer crashes. This happens over the course of several hours. I tried replacing my RAM and running CCleaner but the problem persists. Over Christmas break my brother installed some emulators and I think that was around the time I started getting this issue but as far as I know nothing related to them is running on my computer so I don't know if that's what's causing it. Any help would be appreciated.

    Task manager is reporting disk usage to be anywhere from 0 to 40%. I don't think it's very reliable.

    Fair enough.

    Your best option then would be a RAID setup, it would seem. I can't imagine something else is bottlenecking you.


    Is there any definitive way to go about diagnosing the source of the issue? I checked my CPU usage when recording and it's nowhere near full load, but I'm not very knowledgeable so I just want to be sure I know exactly what component is the bottleneck.

    So it's normal to get such a huge framerate drop and there's nothing I can do about it? I was thinking that maybe getting another hard drive in RAID 0 would help if it's the HDD that's the limiting factor. I personally find that I cannot play below 60 fps. Ideally I want 84 since that's what my monitor is overclocked to but it's a much less noticeable difference past 60 and my aim is only slightly compromised.

    And the reason I like to record at 60 fps is because I have the option to have more fluid slow motion and better motion blur if I decide to use it.

    When recording Minecraft with Mirillis Action! in normal conditions I get well over 60 fps while recording 60 frames per second, which is obviously good. I've tried to record Minecraft with the Fraps trial version but I would get 50 fps max when trying to recording at the highest video settings and 60 fps. This was consistent in Battlefield 4 as well.

    However, when I run shaders (which I normally run at around 100 fps) my game fps drops to around 50 fps when trying to record 60 frames per second, and I barely get 60 fps when recording 30 frames per second. Also, when recording in certain areas of the world (not using shaders) Minecraft tells me I'm getting very high fps even though it feels choppy and often Action! is only recording at around 50-59 fps.

    My question is regarding what component(s) is/are slowing me down so much. I have an i7 3770K, a gtx 780, an 840 EVO that I'm loading Minecraft off of, and a Seagate Barracuda HDD to which I'm recording. It may be worth noting that I'm playing and recording at a resolution of 2560x1440. It just seems wrong that recording drops my framerate so low.

    Since it seems you're trying to use SEUS, I'd recommend either updating to SEUS v10.1 or downgrading to any driver below 320.


    It worked, thanks!

    I have a GTX 780. What is the most recent Nvidia driver version I should install to make this mod work? Using the newest drivers, shaders did not work and caused there to be either no shadows at all or a white screen.

    Also, is there an estimated time at which this mod will be compatible with the latest drivers?

    posted a message on Best Sony Vegas Render Settings for Minecraft?
    Ever since Youtube lowered the bitrate used for 1440p video I've rendered in 3200x1800 which is close enough to 4K that Youtube will list 4K as a quality option which provides a much higher bitrate (I render at 50 Mbps). This is very resource demanding however, so you might not want to go through all of the effort.

    As for the choppiness, there's not much you can do since YouTube caps at 30 fps. I am starting to use RSMB which is a motion blur effect but it easily increases rendering time tenfold.

    Any suggestions for a cooler?


    I have one of these and I get a stable overclock on an i7 3770K at 4.5 GHz at around 60-70 degrees depending on the temperature in my room. I might be able to go higher but it's hard achieving stability at reasonable temperatures.

    It might be a hard drive write speed limit. When I record in 1080p I get 150 fps.

    posted a message on Best Mouse DPI for Minecraft?
    I have the g400 and I set it to 800 DPI so there's no interpolation since that's the mouse's native DPI.

    Fraps will only "lag" if your computer is not powerful enough to record at decent quality. If it's good enough to record, you shouldn't have any problems using it on your computer given that you've adjusted the recording settings correctly.


    In my experience, Fraps gives me terrible performance. I have an i7 3770K, a gtx 780, an 840 EVO that I load my games off of, and I record to a 2 TB Seagate Barracuda HDD, and yet I still get 50 fps max. However, with a program called Action! I easily get 200+ fps when recording Minecraft and little framerate loss in other games with perfect quality video at 60 fps.

    You shouldn't be overclocking if this is how you go about diagnosing errors during the process. Overclocking will cause errors/problems during the process. It's pretty much guaranteed.


    I'm aware. I have done plenty of experimenting and troubleshooting, but with this setup so far nothing has gone wrong. I've stress tested the CPU in Prime95 for ~6 hours and done some encoding/rendering/gaming with it.

    When you assume you make an 'ass' out of 'u' and 'me'.

    Never assume, especially with something like this.

    The overclock is the problem. That was pretty obvious from the start, really. If you have recently made a change to your computer, and suddenly you are having problems or getting errors, what is the one thing that is different between then and now?

    That's right, whatever you changed.

    And no this is probably not a fault of the program you downloaded (as is evidenced by the error telling you exactly what it is related to).


    I just reinstalled the Nvidia drivers and it's fixed now. I have no idea how my Nvidia drivers changed; maybe it was from the overclocking. Regardless, the overclock is stable and I haven't had any other issues with it.

    After overclocking my CPU, every time I boot up these two messages pop up: http://imgur.com/a/zG9v1

    I assume this does not have to do with the overclocking itself, but with the stress-testing and CPU monitoring software I downloaded. Does anyone know what these mean and how to fix them?

    EDIT: It's fixed. I had to reinstall my graphics card's drivers.
