QX6700 @ 3.1GHz


100MHz Difference FTW!!! That is stellar performance.

TiKiMaN1, what are your settings in COH? Settings in the Nvidia Control Panel?, and finally are you testing with 158.18 or 165.01 ?

Any idea when they release the dx10 patch for COH?

Yes but I don't care about the 100 Mhz difference or too much about 158.18. I also would like to know his settings in the control panel and in the game + it would be nice with a comparison of 158.18 and 165.01 158 to 165 is a big jump, but I have no idea what has been changed in the 165 set compared to 158

158.18 and everything is on max with 1920x1080 res. I have not tried the 165's. Maybe I will later. For now I am a very happy man.

I just discovered that the 165.01 are even better.

I have received a 10-15FPS increase. Even though the max isnt as high look at the miniumum and average both are higher and CPU is not as overclocked.

165.01 QX6700 @ 3.05GHz

I would like to compare your results with mine, but first I need to know your NVIDIA control panel settings, AA, AF, Trilinear on/off, Gamma correct AA, triple buffering etc
