THIS POST HAS BEEN REUPDATED AND REARRANGED FOR BETTER VIEW

WARNING B4 PROCEED

I JUZ SHARING THE INFO . IF ANY DAMAGE HAPPEN TO YOUR LAPTOP OR YOUR DEVICE , I'LL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR IT . THIS MAY AVOID YOUR WARRANTY ALSO . DON'T BLAME ME IF YOUR LAPTOP OR DEVICE IS EXPLODED OR TURN INTO ATOM EXPLOSION . YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED !


WARNING : THIS ALSO MAY INCREASE YOUR CPU AND GPU TEMPERATURE IF DON'T HAVE PROPER COOLING . AND OVERCLOCKING MAY SHORTEN YOUR DEVICE LIFESPAN IF YOU NOT HAVE A PROPER COOLING AND GOOD AIRFLOW.



Or more specifically I’ll be explaining overclocking the:
HD 7670M
AMD A6-3420M
This guide comes with absoulutely no warranty. This may damage your hardware, it will void your warranty, follow this guide at your own risk.

Overclocking the A6-3420M

I used K10Stats for overclocking .

1.Download and install k10stats ( https://sites.google.com/site/k10stat/home/...redirects=0&d=1 )
2.Extract and run ( I recommend to create new folder and extract the files inside it )
3.Click the P-state tab .
4.For this part , you need to experiment the clock by urself becuz setting may vary from other brand and model .
5.My tips , set your CPU Voltage to highest to know your cpu overclocking ability . For example , 2.86GHz =1.2875 . Get it ? If 3.0GHz = 1.3000 . Do the math ~

up(ms) and down(ms) set it to "0"

never change the up% and down%


THE BETTER WAY TO OVERCLOCK YOUR APU IS USING K10STATS(much better than fusion tweaker) ~Fusion Tweaker is same as k10stats but simplier interface n easily use BUT RISKY ~


Overclocking the HD 7670M

1.Download the latest GPU driver ~ i would recommend these driver made by LeeKM ( http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=383299 )
2.Follow the instruction from the forum on the link provided .
3.After install , do not restart your laptop yet . go to my computer and type on address bar " regedit " .
4.Press F3 and search "enable ulps" .
5.After done searching , replace it with "0" ~ keep pressing F3 until all of it are set to "0" .
6.Restart
7.Download MSI Afterburner ( no need to download if already have )
8.After done installing it , right click the MSI Afterburner icon on desktop and select open file location.
9.Right click on blank space and click properties.
10.Go to security tab .
11.Click Edit .
12.Click full control on everything ( juz in case and need admin rights ) and click ok .
13.Right click on MSIAfterburner.cfg , click properties and unthick the "read only" and click apply or ok .
14.Open the MSIAfterburner.cfg with wordpad .
15.Scroll down until you find " UnofficialOverclockingMode = 0" change the "0" with "1" .
16.Save it . Run MSI Afterburner.
17.First time run , slowly hit 20MHz for each slider and set the fan to 100% ( Mine can slide till 780/1170)
18.If it stable , you may proceed next step .If unstable or crash , well u would rather not overclocking it ~ it depend on laptop manufacturer .
19.Close MSI Afterburner and reopen it again .
20.Now you can squeeze some extra overclock feature . Gudluck and happy overclocking .




My Review :

I did this method and successfully overclock my ASUS A43TK VX024 proc to 2.9 GHz .
This is my lappy spec :

Windows 8 Pro with Media Center
AMD A6 3420M with integrated graphic( Radeon HD6520g) Oced to 2.9GHz
6GB DDR3 RAM
500GB HDD SATA
ATI Radeon HD7670M ( 835MHz / 1180MHz )

MY OC Setting :

My GPU Overclock(FINAL AND STABLE):
Core Clock : 835MHz Mem Clock: 1180MHz ( 865 MHz / 1210MHz stable for me for some program )
FOR BETTER AND STABLE FOR SOME USER : CORE CLOCK: 700~780MHz MEMORY CLOCK: 1000~1170MHz

-Software rendering will be much faster when running higher clocks.-
IF YOUR TEMPS. GET HIGH OR WANT TO PUSH YOUR OVERCLOCK HIGHER , OPEN THE RAM AND HDD COVER PLATE AND CHANGE THE THERMAL PASTE INSIDE THE LAPTOP . THAT SHOULD DO .


[cool.gif Most of the new game can run pretty decent and playable at max settings , depend on their game engine and settings . The benchmarking result was benchmarked by myself by running it and test it on several games .


This also compatible with A4 ,A6, A8 , and A10 mobile processor.
You can also use FusionTweaker to overclock your processor successfully. ( i recommend k10stats becuz it is more stable software than fusion tweaker . if using fusion tweaker , once it get wrong setting , u gotta format ur hdd )


Here are some tips for the airflow :
- Please do this overclocking on a flat and hard surface ( e.g. marble floor not wooden floor )
- give a space for the laptop
- do it in air conditioned room is recommended
- put a big fan beside ur lappy
- buy a cooler of course

warning on the overclocking the CPU and GPU :
-DON'T PUSH THE VOLTAGE TOO MUCH
-STAY ALERT ON THE TEMP
-DON'T OVERCLOCK TOO MUCH
-BE FRIENDLY WITH YOUR HARDWARE
-LOWER THE CLOCK IF THE TEMP WAY TOO MUCH
-THE HIGHER THE VOLTAGE , THE HIGHER THE TEMP RISING

FOR ASUS A43TK OR SIMILAR : 3.0GHz ARE NOT stable on ASUS A43TK .It only gives you a bluescreen because of voltage limitation.... 2.9GHz are more stable but need a good cooler .( DON'T USE CHEAP COOLER as it not good as branded ones shakehead.gif ...laptop cooler with adjustable fan like Cooler Master Notepal U3 for example is good to be used in overclocking things rclxms.gif )
To have a better temperature on cooling , make a DIY laptop cooler by using some high airflow of 120mm case fans and sum Delta Fans ( mine using cooler master and xigmatek ) and use sum sorduff dc / ac current adapter ~ google 1st for wiring method ~ .. by using the DIY laptop cooler , i got a dramatically low temperature from 51'c is the minimum lowered to 38'c ~ The temp wont go above 80'c

Using DIY cooler ^w^ ( I can't show more pix as it is a confidential hybrid air cooling project aka fish ~ haha ~ juz kidding i cant tell you what kind of theory i use. )

NOTES :
Some of you guys might have problem with application profiles or switchable graphic settings which is giving you an ati crash ..... to fix it u gotta do this :

1 - Go to C: drive (or whatever drive you use in tht matter) inside C : drive there is hidden folder called ProgramData go inside this folder and you will see ATI folder delete ATI folder. (programdata folder is hidden so you have to change your folder view options to show hidden folders)
2 - Go to C:\Users\yourwindowsuser\AppData\Local (change yourwindowsuser with your admin account name that you use when you login windows) there you will see another ATI folder just delete it.
3- Try to reopen the CCC . Everything will start fine. CCC will work fine but all your previous profiles gone


Hope ATI will fix this issue ....

Upgrade or install windows 8 for better gaming performance smile.gif the fps of myself playing mw2 stable at 50-60fps smile.gif most games like cod bops also gained a huge amount of fps smile.gif


TWEAKS:
Make BF3 running smoother ~ :

First , you need to set ur settings that make the game ran playable . then , download the .cfg file and put in in ur battlefield 3 folder .

http://www.mediafire.com/?l8uyt1qxcns1w3u


For smooth or increase performance on Battlefield 3 , patch ur game until latest ~ since i test the game using the pirate one , use update 5 of battlefield 3 .search through google or can ask me to upload the file of the patch ( but tht would be illegal)

This is wht i got through fps benchmark :

Operation Swordbreaker ( in the humvee scene ~ till end of mission )

B4 Patch : 35~39 fps
After patch : 39~60 fps minimum is around 28 or 29 but happen on certain , not all the time ~ still playable

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FOR USING THE HD7670M INSTEAD OF HD6520G

This is a detail explaination on getting a performance on 7670m card without using 6520g ...

Right click , go to AMD Radeon Dual Graphic tab and disable it .
user posted image

Then , go to Switchable Graphics and select ur desired application that you wanna run with 7670m .select high performance ~ done .

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You guys are feel free to ask the game settings or overclock settings at me if you guys wanna know my clock setup ^w^
Stay tune for more stable benchmark and oc . It would be a great if you guyz post ur oc result at here so we can exchange some infos ^w^
If you guys have any suggestion , please let me know .And also ,please leave a good comment ... Don't be harsh ....
Stay update to latest ATI graphic driver on AMD websites . watch out for game latest patch for performance and other improvement and fixes .
For Benchmarking software or games can be requested at this post for further benchmarking n testing

I'm glad this guide helped you, when I wrote it I couldn't find a lot (any) of information on overclocking the 7670m.

I just looked up K10stat and fusiontweaker. I think the full version of AMD Overdrive is better. Also the mini version of Overdrive included in AVE / CCC doesn't seem like it's being offered anymore (Catalyst 12.11 Beta) so I'm going to need to update the guide.

BTW:

<...> update AMD Vision Engine (Shortened to AVE), you can do so with this.

yea ~ but this is the basic explaination smile.gif advanced setup depend on different than what people use ... some people can go till 3.0GHz without bluescreen , like mine ASUS A43TK got a very limit voltage tweak doh.gif urm ..... full version of AMD Overdrive ?? do you have the link ? what is the differences between the one tht already have in AMD Vision Engine CCC ? hmm.gif

I should test the higher GHz stability.

The full version of AMD Overdrive can be found here. It has a lot more features than the one included with AVE / CCC. I highly recommend checking it out, even if you don't end up using it. It even has features for testing the stability, I love it.

i benchmark it by myself smile.gif testing it for real ~ b4 i bought this laptop , i search through each forums for some infos and comparing this laptop gpu to others like gt610m and gt630m ~ and the gpu is running a few percent better than those gpu smile.gif and watching on youtube for seeing how far that this gpu can go smile.gif

Most of the games that i benchmark is running without cpu overclocking , juz running wif overclocked gpu smile.gif and disabling the apu integrated graphic . my safe range on cpu overclocking is 2.5GHz smile.gif 2.6GHz till 2.9GHz will gives laptop overheat and shut down by itself ~ but depend on each core setup smile.gif

I suggest if u wanna buy it , u need to upgrade ram capacity to 6GB or 8GB max since 2GB will giving this laptop some bottlenecking or u can buy a laptop that have a same spec as mine or grab the one wif intel processor like core i5 or i7 and have a hd7670m graphics smile.gif

Thnx for viewing this post smile.gif I appreciate it .

yes , this model is more cheaper smile.gif and it has been known as cheap gaming laptop which is better and affordable by most gamer on a budget ..most of the time i running it on stock for the processor since overclocking it juz give about 20% to 30% boost for game loading and fps ~ but boost windows startup and other multimedia work like video converting smile.gif

waalaikumussalam bro smile.gif you mean this(hd7670m) GPU ? if yes , on this GPU, u can push to the max without oc the CPU by using normal or without custom cooler ~ juz using the regular and cheap one smile.gif core clock on 780MHz and 1170MHz on memory clock smile.gif final and stable .on other gpu , it depend on how far the gpu can push ~janji ckup voltage ...

u can save ur GPU and CPU oc settings smile.gif when u start the system , it will run on ur overclocked settings .even though u restart wink.gif but if u dun save the settings , it will run in stock or normal clock .

for GPU , msi afterburner provide a profile tht u can save the settings ~ same goes to other overclocking software ~
for CPU , fusion tweaker need 2 save by checking the "make custom p-states settings permanent" and k10stats provide a save profile . much easier but pening sket 2 use but same like fusion tweaker smile.gif

from update 5 u said need to exchange to 7670m to get better performance while playing games,does i need to do this everytime i want to play game in high setting?or there is also save setting like oc the cpu and gpu?

hahaha ~ maybe facebook make me post many smiley tongue.gif

gudluck on grabbing the laptop smile.gif

From Update 5 : tht one juz do it once ~ smile.gif since it save ur profile for performance smile.gif

another question bro,,

if i oc sekali-sekala(mean,oc just untuk maen game,and then revert to stock to do work like word,powepoint,browse internet,etc,etc),,is it ok?x rosak hardware ke kalau buat camtu kerap kali?

then if oc cpu to 2.5ghz,is it ok to use this cooler:

this

or is it ok to just use this cooler?:

this one

orrr,,is it ok not to use cooler?

i pick notepal u3 wif removable fans in my opinion ~ becuz i put my fan on the hole vent below the laptop ~ and i oso open the ram and the hdd cover for extra cool down .... so better grab tht cooler ~ klau kat luar psng ler blek tongue.gif

if oc skali skala arr ? hmm.... no prob smile.gif tp klau asyik nak tuka je mmg menyusahkn ~ so in k10stats , u can create a profile smile.gif tht is good news for apu laptop overclockers ~ it can save up to 5 profile if not my mistake smile.gif u can set Game profile , Work Profile , Idle profile , and others ..

From my experience , boleh je nak oc skali skala ~ tp jgn terlebih push mende tu je ~ klau overclock bwh 2.5GHz still ok ~ mine rite now hit 2.7GHz running 95'c with custom cooler ~ hardware rosak sbb panas gile2 and overvolt ~ 1.2875v is on safe range on my overclocking ~ juz need knowledge on oc it smile.gif

look at this guy overclocking the cpu , tgk software k10stats . nmpk x die ade wat profile max , profile 2 , profile 3 and len2 ? so xde la jd keje dua tiga empat kali smile.gif ( jgn dicopy lak setting die , tht one unstable )

Hey, thank you very much for the article. I can't find anything useful than your topic about overclocking this GPU and a friend recommended here. You explained and detailed very well. I'm thinking to overclock my 7670M too but before I do it, I need some help.

Firstly, when I searched "enableulps" on regedit files, there are more than 1. I think the number of these are 4 or 5. Should I change all their value from 1 to 0?

You did fan speed %100 percent on MSI Afterburner. Should I do it too or leave it to auto? Also, you didn't give voltage to GPU, did you?

Thanks in advance.

Firstly , i would say thank you for reading this post smile.gif

Okay , for the enableulps ~ yes , you need to change all of it into " 0 " . If you are planning to update ur gpu driver , u hav to do this again once after u update ur gpu driver ~

For the fan , i set it 100% becuz i dun wan my lappy get hot ~ but even though i set it to 100% , the fan speed like doesn't change shocking.gif so , i use the laptop cooler for preventing some overheating ~~ so , up to u if u wanna set it to 100% or less ~ or set it to auto smile.gif

For the gpu voltage , i didn't ~ even though i already unlock it in MSI Afterburner , it still wont unlock it ~ so , the voltage for the gpu is untouchable n unadjustable ~~


extra infos ~ with the AMD Catalyst 13.2 Beta 4 ,now i can push my gpu core clock to 820MHz or 825MHz rather than 780MHz max and memory clock on 1170MHz or 1180Mhz on windows 8 ( windows 7 dun sure ~ )

Find it quite interesting as there are topic related to this 7670m ATI - not so over-rated GC.

Anyway, here are the specs of the laptop;
A8-Quad 1.8Ghz turbo up to 2.5Ghz
with 4GB of Ram(dual channel)
6260m + 7670m

Looking at your setup that alot of cooler are used and infact I was quite suprised that you were able to OC from 600Mhz/900Mhz default clock to a really high clock.

Relatively anyway a benchmark of Planetside 2 can be post up?
Was playing it for few days seeminglessly figured out whether should stop playing it or what not as the specs I have seems making it lagging very bad although it was crossfire.

OC'ing wasn't an alternative since all of my previous GC were OC to an extend that bad pixel start showing up, now, whether to OC another free 200mhz which is alot, or might even end up sending the laptop for RMA later on.

Thanks smile.gif

Benchmark for Planetside 2 will be post up ~ ( Maybe this saturday )
I think if u find the game get lagging , u shud disable crossfireX since one of the graphic memory and clock are different which giving u an unstable fps like mine playing bf3 ( even though bf3 fps get 60fps on msi afterburner when crossfire , it juz like 20fps wif lag here n there ~ unstable gameplay .. still researching for tht fix )

bad pixel ? u mean artifact ( random colour pixel ) ? even though u start wif small clocks ? bad pixel or artifact mostly caused by memory clock ~

Okay, first of all, your post is extremely helpful, since no one has ever post how to OC HD7670M as detailed as yours..

Now, my laptop spec,
i5-3317U 1.7 Ghz
4GB RAM
HD7670M of course tongue.gif

Anyway, since i'm using intel cpu, and I only want to OC my gpu, can I use your method above?
If I can, with amd driver 13.1 official, what is the good and stable core and memory clock? I think I don't want to go as high as 820mhz like you did.. LOL

Sure bro biggrin.gif but u better use beta driver since it got alot of fixes but it up to you if u wanna update ur gpu driver or not ~ so , the stable core clock is 780MHz and memory clock is 1170MHz ~ smile.gif tht is wht i use b4 ~ stable n no crash ~ smile.gif

Another tips , if u wanna squeeze an extra performance u can grab another 4gb ram or use dual channel 8gb ram smile.gif which is helpful n ur laptop will be more smoother in doing task smile.gif

It looks like the CrossfireX in Planetside 2 game is fixed on my end.

Downloaded the latest driver, and crank GPU till 750/1000 from 600/900, that were the only stable core, used the Sapphire Overclock tool.

As far for cranking up till 840/1170 it's look like a 7700 GPU series already, but still nevertheless it's pretty darn good cranking up over 200Mhz in core, that's like extra 500 bucks if it were to change to a new laptop with that similiar GPU. Haha smile.gif

As for APU, uses the OverDrive and crank from 1.8Ghz till 2.2Ghz, just that the Turbo still goes up till only 2.5Ghz.. will figure out a way on that soon.

At this moment the OC'ing is fair enough for me to play the game. tongue.gif

wow ~ smile.gif like mine i use 820/1180 wif afterburner n using k10stats to overclock my cpu to 2.7GHz ~

can u share any printscreen of urs overclocking ? i might wanna add it to my research for stable clocks for everyone to use ~ smile.gif

Long story short, I finally succeed to overclock my 7670M.. I set the core clock at 725mhz with memory at 1000mhz in msi afterburner.. Yes, it's a small value compare to yours cry.gif , however, now what i'm concern it's about the heat..

After I set the afterburner, I ran Furmark to test my setting.. Then. the temperature keep rising up.. 70....75...80...85... and then i shut down furmark.. LOL
My question is, is it okay to have 90 degrees gpu? Right now i'm using coolermaster notepal evo cooler, but the fan position isn't right under my gpu or cpu tongue.gif ..
Then, next question, if i continue the furmark test, it isn't gonna blow my laptop right? Or the temperature will keep rising?

Thx b4, again really helpful post !

Edit : one more question, what memory that your 7670M had? Is it ddr3 or ddr5? thanks !

first of all , the heat ~ well , max temp for gpu is 100'c ~ did u set the fan at auto or full speed ? mine set at full speed ~
since u r using intel cpu , it is goin to be hot like my dad dell laptop using i7 ~ even though already bought laptop cooler ~
then , it is important for the laptop cooling fan were set under the vent of ur laptop ~like mine , i had to remove the ram n the hdd cover for my laptop for proper air flow since most laptop doesnt hav a proper cooling even though it is cooled wif laptop cooler ~ mine using a custom cooler which is better cooling and high airflow smile.gif

i like ur question " it isn't gonna blow my laptop right? " well , no ~ like urm ~ it's juz like boiling a water ~ nothing blow right ? juz a heat~ dun worry , when ur gpu reach 100'c , it will automatically shut down to prevent any error. my suggestion is , try to overclock at some place that not hot or airconditioned place and keep ur gpu temp under 98'c or 96'c or 85'c for better~ what is important is proper cooling ~ post me a screenshot of urs settings in msi afterburner + cpuz + gpuz ~

mine gpu is 1gb gddr3 hd7670 ~ if u find the gddr5 version , u r lucky mate smile.gif

Now, I have found the problem ! Right now, i set the gpu to 725/1000.. Note that fan speed is set to 100, although i don't think it has any effect on the fan... After 10 mins running furmark, gpu is at 81 degrees which is good enough i think...

The reason why last time the temperature is rising up is because i force the cpu to always turbo (2.4 ghz).. However, if i let the cpu throttle down, apparently the gpu temperature decrease too.. Well, stupid intel CPU.. LOL

Right now i'm at 750/1050..
Seems stable enough.. Running 3Dmark 11 performance give me 1452 gpu score..
That's pretty damn high! Even surpass the 7690M XT! Max temp after running the bench is around 78 degrees which still very good..

Thank you again! Cheers!

Hello again,

I finally managed to overclock my 7670M and I want to share results with you guys.

I'm not using any cooler and I was thinking to overclock after buy a good cooler but couldn't resist. blush.gif Btw, I only tested in 3D Mark 11 and not in games, GPU temperature didn't up to 62 degrees. I also disabled Intel Turbo Boost because like you guys said, it's causing too overheat. I lost some 300-400 Physics Score because of that. Like I care. tongue.gif

Anyway, here the results:

Without overclock (600-900):

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/5882623

Overclock - 700/1000:

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/5882627

Overclock - 750/1050 (most stable)

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/5882631

Overclock - 780/1170

It doesn't have benchmark score because even on first test, there was already some black spots in the screen and I instantly alt+f4 to preventing any error (btw, my gpu hasn't damaged, has it? rolleyes.gif I tried on some games with default clock and I don't get any black spots).

Overclock - 750/1100

This doesn't have too because it gave to me CTD on the last test and I couldn't get score. I don't know what problem is cause it. GPU temperature was normal, maybe the overclock was too much or just the program has crashed. Nevertheless, I didn't test again.

Like I said, I tested only in 3D Mark 11. With 750/1050 and 1363 graphic score, it surpass most the 6770M and almost catch up the 7690M XT. Personally, I'm very satisfied. 750/1050 seems stable enough. My GPU has DDR3 memory so I think if you have GDRR3-5, you will get more score and much more chance of overclocking.

I hope it will help a little. I will post when I test with other clock values. Thank you very much and have a wonderful day. smile.gif

This doesn't have too because it gave to me CTD on the last test and I couldn't get score. I don't know what problem is cause it. GPU temperature was normal, maybe the overclock was too much or just the program has crashed. Nevertheless, I didn't test again.

Like I said, I tested only in 3D Mark 11. With 750/1050 and 1363 graphic score, it surpass most the 6770M and almost catch up the 7690M XT. Personally, I'm very satisfied. 750/1050 seems stable enough. My GPU has DDR3 memory so I think if you have GDRR3-5, you will get more score and much more chance of overclocking.

I hope it will help a little. I will post when I test with other clock values. Thank you very much and have a wonderful day. smile.gif

sye gne vapour cooling type custom cooler , buat sendiri ~ gne cooler master 120mm + xigmatek 120mm + cooler master 80mm + icute 120mm +icute 80mm + vapour cooling ( secret ) + any low watt power supply ( look in youtube on making it ) .

Klau xnak yg wat sendiri or yg ok nyer , try search cooler master laptop cooler yg moveable fan mcm cooler master notepal u3
http://www.coolermaster.com/product/Detail...notepal-u3.html



GPU OC + CPU OC AT MAX

suitable temp WITHOUT OC using made in china cooler ( depend on type of cooler ) :

idle : 44-50'c gaming : 60 - 85'c


suitable temp WHEN OC (MAX ) using made in china cooler :

idle : 51 - 60'c gaming : 65 - 90'c < try to go lower than 90'c

About SATA 3.
Is it possible to flash the Asus K43TA modded BIOS on the K53TK to enable SATA 3? (Its available on another forum) Both are essentially the same laptops. The only difference is that K43TA/K53TA has 6750m whereas K53TK has 7670m. Or has anyone else enabled SATA 3 on their K53TK alternatively?
Would anyone please comment?

TIA!

i haven't try tht yet ~ but i wouldn't recommend to do tht ~ since some laptop have different inner chipset and build ~ if you would take the risk , sure can try but things need to consider : success or fail ~ worth a try ~ better u do some survey first ~ try ask the forum moderator for its compability ~ gud luck thumbup.gif

if it success , you can share here smile.gif thnx !

Hello, In page 1 you say that you can adjust the speed of your fan laptop to 100%, can you tell me how you do that?because when i follow your instruction with msi afterburner, the configuration setting didn't appear to control the fan speed, i read in the other link in internet and i still can't make it. Thanks

Try using dxtory to limit your frame rate to 31 then it should give you better performance across the board. I've been able to take my settings all from medium to high in titanfall just by using this and it runs so smooth. Miles better than not using it. Hope this helps you all
