Told myself I wouldn't game until after 7pm. Just got my computer back up after installing my new heatsink. Pics are epic, I'll upload later.

So...just curious...I have a Core 2 Quad @ 2.8GHz (waiting on mah RMA'd RAM to resume OC) and I'm seeing 90-100% CPU utilization on all 4 cores in game, you guys have similar results? I had to buy a QC just to play. Couldn't get above 25fps no matter what with the dual, surprised me how limited this architecture is already.
My 2700k doesn't see more than 50% on the first 7 cores, haven't seen the 8th move past 5%.

Can't imagine your Core 2 quad would be stressing so much, are your game settings at max?

Open Hardware Monitor.

Also meant threads, not cores above. Although 8 cores would be saweeeet

It would be nice to get a good overlay. I like to turn off the second monitor while playing.

Everything is maxed except for AA. 1920x1080.

Monitoring with a combo of fraps, core temp, alt-tabbing to task manager, etc. I think it's the mass amount of texture data that is the consumer of cpu cycles. Based on what you said, 50% x 7 threads seems to correlate well to 90% x 4 threads on an older, slower proc. I feel like I may be missing out on just a little bit of what this HD 6950 can offer, hopefully I will get a little more out of it once I can get the CPU back around 3.4GHz. I think that getting another 6950 in the future would be pointless until I upgrade to a newer architecture, however.

Anybody else have issues with the game not loading correctly after choosing a random multiplayer server? Nearly half the time, when I choose a server, and it takes a few seconds to set up all of the stuff, once the screen goes black, the game never loads and I have to Alt Ctrl Del and close the game and restart. Sometimes it does this twice in a row.

I just really feel this game was not completed, and they are leaving it up to the players to finish it for them by sending in error reports for them to patch. Shitty way to do business.

It usually crashes on me when joining a server 1 out of 10 times. It also sometimes starts singleplayer instead of multiplayer.

Battlelog sucks. That's all there is to it.

ClimbasaurusRex if you want to add me. I also know how to play like a real human being :P
Typical 'Sauga attitude. lol

This whole crash thing really keeps me from playing the game. I've been bored all day, and the two times I have tried to play today, I've dealt with the crash issue. One time I started it back up and played a round or two before the game crashed while mid game, the other time I just got irritated by having to open task manager again to end the game. I never restarted it and found something else to do. I hope they get off their asses and start releasing patches to fix the mountains of issues with this game. It has potential to be a pretty good game, but as of now, I'm not all that impressed. Crysis 2 is still a FAR better looking and more fun game.

I get so irritated with headshots in this game. Never had any issue in any other PC shooter. I typically end up with the majority of my kills being headshots. But for whatever reason in this game, I can hardly get them. Whether I use a sniper rifle and a well aimed shot, or an M249 blasting away to the face at 10', I can't ******* get a head shot. A lot of times, I can unload my machine gun all over their head, even when it's the only thing showing, and even though I start firing a second or two before they ever see me, they can spin around and place 2 or 3 shots and I die, and they still have 50% health. I want to throw my mouse across the room after those kinds of deaths. Or if they are sitting perfectly still, and I'm only 50' away from them, across a street or something and I fire my sniper rifle at their head, I cannot get the ******* headshot. It's bullshit. Maybe they have lower ping than I and get the advantage of seeing things a fraction of a second sooner than I do. Even though I try to stay in servers with a ping of 100ms or less.

TL;DR. I aim for center of mass always and end up with more headshots than not.
