    Seems like I`ve stumbled across posts in the past how peaple turn off a core or two? or something to that effect to make UO run better in the EC? I`ve tried like hell to get something to pop up thru search ......

    Just got this thing up and running and after playing UO a lil and crashing once, I am see`ing a definate downgrade in performance in the EC. Its only for UO though,plays other games freekin great! :thumbup:

    AMD Phenom 9650
    Win XP Pro sp3
    2 gigs ram (2 on da way)
    Nvidia 9800GT

    Any lil tricks I can try to improve my UO experience on this thing?

    from what i understand you can control the amount of cores used during bootup. in windows open task manager, go to processes. find uo and right click it. check SET AFFINITY, hope that works out let us know.

    I just stumbled across that today before I flashed my bios. Makin sure everything was shut off that needed to be,realized that was where ya set the affinity. I knew I read about it in the past but never paid much attention,didn`t apply to me at the time. Thanks for the replies though.

    Since my initial install its been running the EC great.Even fixed the slow graphics loading when running at mounted speed. How? Dunno,lol. I`ve done so much to this in the past few days (for this and another problem)I can`t be sure what I did to make it better,but its freekin great now. Only get minor stuttering when running at mounted speed but thats only occasional.

    Now if I could just get this damn thing to go into dual channel mode!!! :wall:
