Vurts stress test with ENB and ugrids 7?

Question

Hey,

 

does anyone with STEP:Extended, ugrids 7 with extended far visibility (grass, objects, foliage), skse memory patch and a demanding ENB have data for Vurt's stress test (tcl + player.setav speedmult 1500 and fly around for 5 minutes)? I usually crash about 2 minutes into it, but I could probably use a new install anyway, windows included. It would be helpful to know if people can get a setup like this stable though.

 

Thanks in advance!

I dont have the setup at the moment, but i did a few weeks back, before i wiped everything and went for a fresh hardware and OS install. STEP Extended with ugrids 7 with extended visibility (maxed out sliders, not more), was no problem with vurts speed test. Easily could go over 5 minutes. I did occasionally have a CTD, but on average 5 minutes was entirely reachable. 

 

I did however stutter pretty badly. I was using all HQ versions of mods, all DDSopted to 2048 max (less for exteriors and exterior normal), and my VRAM usage was hitting 2GB+ in exteriors (gtx 560 Ti 2GB). Even interiors were on average about 1.4GB. I couldnt get the game to load without ENBoost, would crash due to 3.1GB load limit.

 

Sorry i cant supply you with anything more concrete that hearsay, but it was possible for me.

Thanks for the info!

 

I kind of have a bad feeling that my graphics card might be at fault. One time my system crashed right after exiting Skyrim, blackscreen. A known problem with powercolor r9 290 pcs+. At best it's the driver, I switched from ATI to NVidia about 5 times with this install (once for my 280x, 3 times for each 290 since my replacement card was an old 8800 gts) and crashed it a couble of dozen times during overclocking. Even windows 7 can only take so much punishment.

Did you try that with an ENB btw?

I was unable to use an ENB. I tried, but the sudden drops in fps, which was essentially the cause of stuttering, were even more pronounced with ENBs. Turning in a direction too quickly was never easy. I did find the the ENBoost setting enableunsafememoryhacks helped reduce stuttering, which was the only setting/ fix that helped, and without any ENB preset. It made the game playable, but not much more than that. Besides, there was an alleged stability trade off, but i didnt really notice the game being more CTD prone or anything. I came to the conclusion that it was hardware limit issue, hence i upgraded.

This is the second thread here that is stating issues with the AMD Radeon 2xx series of cards...a pattern is emerging.

The second thread is definitely a case of PEBCAK though.

It's "just" some of the 290(x) series of cards suffering from blackscreen issues. It might have been a bad batch, the cause isn't very clear. The best explaination I have found so far are problems with memory dimm power.
