Problem: Experiencing low fps in company of heroes and other games of similar release era, when posted benchmarks of similar systems have shown far better performance. Also, score on 3dmark06 with base settings is 9200. I've overclocked the 4830 "Sapphire" to 650 gpu clock, 950 memory clock without any significant increase in performance. Next the CPU "7750 Black edition 2.7 stock" was OC'd to 3.0 by setting the multiplier to 15x. This also did not seem to increase performance for Company of Heroes nor 3Dmark06. The following are my system specs.
Asrock [AOD790gx/128M] mother board.
KUMA 7750 black edition 2.7 processor
300gig SATA maxtor hdd
Radeon HD 4830 512 mb Pci express 2.0 16x
2x [Kingston HyperX 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 1066] set to ganged in bios
80mm fan intake front of case, 120 mm fan blowing out rear, 80mm blowing in side directly on cpu heatsink, 80mm intake for 4830.
Temps as read by several utlities read an average 29c to 40c for 0 and 1 cpu cores. GPU temp never reads above 50c.
My major question is what performance this community thinks I should reasonably expect from my setup, using Company of Heroes and other equivalent games as a common refference.
Thanks for your time.
