Default Jumpy gaming after overclock?

Hi

So ive overclocked the e6600 to 3.0 ghz (its done 3.4 in the past). Im running it on a Gigabyte Ga965p-DS4 motherboard.

Only ive just noticed that game play (BF2) stutters more when the cpu is overclocked (even a mild overclock to 2.6Ghz has this effect).

The setup is stable as ive run 3dmark05 and prime and mem test....

Is there a reason that overclocking it makes the game more choppy? I thought its meant to increase performance!

Cheers,

I don't know if this will help but try setting the CPU affinity to CPU 0 only instead of both.

Press ALT+CTRL+DELETE go to processes find the game, right click and click on set affinity, then uncheck cpu 1.

Tried that... no help :-(

Interesting thing is that its only jumpy when playing on the internet. BF2 runs sweet as in single player mode... does that mean that its my network connection? - Its weird as if i drop my cpu speed back to stock it works fine over the internet (without the choppy graphics) - By the way im also running a X1900XT 512 HIS (So i know the graphics card can deal with it)

Any suggestions?

Well then it's probably your ping, look around the internet for tweaks.

Perhaps the over clock is messing with the on-board ethernet. I'd look into picking up a cheapie NIC somewhere and try that.
