  1. I use the Valve Index, I did a little review here after coming from an Oculus CV! https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/54790-valve-index-1st-week-of-use-review-after-cv1/?tab=comments#comment-834227
  2. I was also just looking at some kind of donation for your efforts, so this is great timing.
  3. The v Droop is about 1.285 under full AVX load with temps around 55-60 degrees after 1 hour (the water loop is pretty big lol) I have a second 360 rad/fans and a better cpu waterblock to fit yet too, I hope to get the temps another 5-10 degrees lower, that may allow me to drop the voltage slightly too
  4. Yeah, but 5.4GHz is only achievable with around 1.42v vCore lol (so I wont be doing that again lololo) I have settled for 5.3 GHz at vcore of 1.310v no AVX offset with HT disabled
  5. Actually, after the update, when other other people said they had an increase in fps, I got a bit of a drop??? I ended up lowering from ULTRA to HIGH and set clouds to MED. I also further increased the O/C on my 2080ti to 2125 MHz boost and I am now stutter free except for very low passes over the built up area on the new map (it seems to be a loading thing) I honestly think that VR pushes systems so hard and that everybody's system is so unique that this is why we see the anomalies and differing performances setup to setup... Good advice! I just turned HT off on my system and instantly was able to crank the O/C to 5.3GHz at the same vCore and lower temps (about -4) I need to stress test fully, but a quick full AVX small packet test (hardest test) was fine!
  6. The only way I know is what you said, set an AVX offset and see if the clocks drop, but more and more games/sims are and will use AVX/AVX2 as time goes on... 1.335v is OK but I dont like going much over 1.3v personally (the general rule is a max of 1.4v for everyday, but that really is a max), I have seen a small drop in fps and more stutters with the update, so I dropped the Steam SS from 150% to 136% and that helped quite a bit. Im going to see if there are any patches over the next few days, then do another settings adjustment... Like you said, stupid PC, stupid VR LOL
  7. When the OC is unstable, is that during AVX enabled games? What software are you using for testing? My setup is totally stable @5.2MHz but any higher I get the odd fail, but only with AVX enabled small packet tests... Games still run OK at 5.3, I can up the Vcore further, but dont want to. What Vcore are you running?
  8. When you overclocked the CPU did you run the XMP for that RAM? I suspect the RAM is the issue, most people dont realise the CPU is the ram controller and the i9 (as well as some AMD CPUs) struggle with such high speed ram (why I chose 3200MHz). Did you remove all power limiting states etc?
  9. I had my system at the point I was getting less than 2% reprojection, so I turned it off What are you using at the moment? and full system specs?
  10. Nope, I nearly went for the Reverb, but to my mind and needs the Index was a far better choice for me personally (not that I am saying the Reverb is not as good, just they bring differing pluses and minuses). Trust me, no reprojection and a solid 80fps is wayyyy better lol Oculus ASW was very good, but the CV1 is getting old and the new offerings from Oculus didn't tempt me (partly the lack of eye adjustment) Reprojection on Steam VR is close, but not quite as good.
  11. OOOOH that will do it!!! Get the AA down and the clouds, check your Nvidia settings too, it does take some time, but you will be able to tune the settings to look good and run well Put full details of your system specs in your sig, helps people give you good advice
  12. Hmmm, you need to go over your settings again, sounds like you might be 'doubling up' on AA or something, check your Nvidia settings too etc (Its pretty easy to miss something, I know from experience lol)
  13. Hi, I use an index, reprojection isn't too bad, I would say the oculus ASW is slightly better to be honest, but the difference is minimal. I have a similar system to you (specs in my signature below) and I dont use reprojection anymore. I get a solid 80 FPS/Hz all the time and you should be able to get similar with a little tweeking on the index. One advantage of the Index is that you only run SteamVR without anything else in the background unlike Oculus or the Reverb that run SteamVR plus their own software too... Here are my settings for the Index running @ 80Hz (with no drops below 80 fps) ULTRA Screen Res 640x480 UI Scale Auto Shadows LOW Mirrors Simple Distant Landscape Detail x4 Horizon Draw Distance 150km Landscape Filter Sharp Grass Quality Normal Clouds Quality Low Dynamic res Full Antialiasing @2 SSAO unchecked HDR Unchecked Sharpen Checked Use 4K Tex Checked Steam SS 150%, motion smoothing off
  14. Indeed, but I run a few other applications / games that would benefit from having 6 cores, so I am hoping to find a setup that will work well on all so I dont have to keep loading a different bios lol
  15. Hi, I used the same settings as before (below) ULTRA Screen Res 640x480 UI Scale Auto Shadows LOW Mirrors Simple Distant Landscape Detail x4 Horizon Draw Distance 150km Landscape Filter Sharp Grass Quality Normal Clouds Quality Low Dynamic res Full Antialiasing @2 SSAO unchecked HDR Unchecked Sharpen Checked Use 4K Tex Checked Steam SS 150%, motion smoothing off I am going to try what @chiliwilly suggested, turning of HT and a couple of cores (six physical cores is still plenty for iL2) That should enable me to drop the voltage or at least leave it the same and have extra headroom to up the multiplier higher It may or may not work lol Hi dburne At 5.2 GHz (No AVX offset) I am running vCore @ 1.305v, vdroop is 1.285v and max peak temps is 62 deg under full sysnthetic load (AVX). So pretty happy with that. Once I install the second rad an pump along with some better thermal paste, I hope to lower the temps further...
  16. Hi Just did a 20 min session on Berloga server, got 3 kills and mixed it up a bit, but I had no stutters at all? (maybe one, but I was in a tight turn fight and wasnt sure if I had a stutter or not) This was at 5.2 GHz. I will probably have a go at disabling HT and 4 cores and try 5.4 or 5.5GHz if possible at the weekend when I have more time to stress test and check temps properly
  17. Yeah, I think HT is pretty useless for me, I dont have any software that really needs more than the 8 physical cores...
  18. Hi, OK I will try and get on tonight for a quick test if I have time, if not asap The case is great, so easy to work on the PC and very versatile, lots of mounting options and space to play with Dust isnt much of an issue (though only been using it a few days, but my old NZXT (normal case) was always getting dust in it and looked bad withing a few days due to the high pressure fans etc... At least this case is fast n easy to clean
  19. Not yet, but I was thinking about dropping the HT as 8 cores on their own is plenty to be honest. I have a second 360 radiator and pump to add to the loop also, plus a better (possibly better lol) water block. I also used some cheap thermal paste I had hanging around that was pretty old, so I am going to get some Thermal Grizzly Cryonaught paste to try. I hope to lower the temps another 5+ degs from an average peak of 60 to 55 or lower. I might then up the vCore to a max of 1.35v (my personal sfe limit for 24/7 oc'ing) All that may alow me to run 5.3 or higher... or not lol
  20. It makes a nice change, my previous CPU ( 6600k ) was a turnip and terrible for O/Clocking LOL
  21. I think I am pretty lucky, I can get a solid, no AVX offset 5.2GHz at a Vcore of 1.305 with maximum peak temps of 62 degs with my new custom 360 loop. But beyond 5.2GHz it needs silly volts to be stable. At 1.305v the vdroop is about 1.285v under full synthetic load (AVX) . Strangely, I need a Vcore of 1.295 for 5.1GHz with similar temps, so 5.2 seems to be my sweet spot. I have a second 360 radiator and second pump to fit as well as a better waterblock and thermal compound, so I may be able to drop the temps a little more yet too To be honest, 5.4GHz is not a serious option for me. I am pretty happy with the 5.2GHz all cores / 16 threads no AVX offset with Vcore @ 1.305 and temps maxing at 62 (highest peak temp on an hour long AVX enabled synthetic test). The trouble with my test at 5.4 is I dont want to risk my CPU by repeating it, so the lack of stutters on a short flight does not mean much... But I will reprt it tonight when I get home
  22. I just managed to run my overclock to 5.4GHz @ 1.42v Vcore and did a quick flight! It was superb! However, temps were NOT and would not run my cpu at that voltage for long anyway lol. But it did prove that CPU speed is still lacking on my system as I got no stutters @ 5.4 GHz... Possibly a fluke (but I am not running my CPU that hard again to find out LOL) I seem to have gotten a bit of a Golden CPU here
  23. Ok, just did a quick test with fpsVR again, offline both the CPU and GPU times are around 8ms each with occasional spikes (very few above 12) Online is a little higher, but still around 9-ish for both, but the spikes can be more numerous and slightly more break the 12ms point, but if you are playing and not checking the figures, its very smooth and nice, just the very rare micro stutter...
  24. Im OK online too, I did get the odd stutter (fairly infrequent to be honest) and using fpsVR showed that the 2080 Ti and i9 were fairly similar and no big bottle neck from either. The CPU was always working a little harder, but not enough to call it a bottle neck. Next time I go online to play, I will try and run fpsVR and check things. It may be fps is dropping, but doing it smoothly and I am not noticing it during game play?? But I cant think it is dropping a lot or I would notice it... Are you shutting down all un-needed software etc, I run a pretty stripped down OS (usually showing 0 to 1% occupancy at idle)...
  25. Generally I get a very smooth, solid 80 fps, but from time to time I can get a slight loss or minor stutter... Clouds are ok (not great) and no problems with shadows at all Hope it helps. I have now overclocked my GPU (7500 MHz Ram and GPU at max 2100MHz) and gone to full custom 360 open loop water cooling for the CPU ( now @ 5.2 GHz with no AVX offset ) So my system is pretty beefy...
