HAF Klán Rádiózási Szabályai

A HAF Klán vezetői megbeszélés alapján arra jutott, hogy véleményünk szerint több fegyelem kell a rádió használatakor a küldetések végrehajtása során. Ez csak egy játék ezt tudjuk, de Nélkülünk az ArmA 3 is csak egy PC Játék marad, ezért vigyünk bele egy kis színt a saját tudásunkkal, személyiségünkkel, fegyelmezettségünkkel. Lényegében teljesen mindegy, hogy melyik HAF Tag készít egy küldetést nekünk, de kérünk mindenkit, hogy tiszteljük meg a készítőt (készítőket) azzal, hogy fegyelmezetten végrehajtjuk az adott missziót. Én személy szerint (GodFather-a szerző) küldetéstervezéssel kezdtem ArmA 3 -as részvételem (Raoul [HAF] videói alapján) a HAF Klánban, ezért tudom jól, hogy mennyi időt, és energiát kell belefektetni az ArmA Editor-ba, hogy egy jó küldetést összehozzunk. Ezenkívül ha esetlegesen valamelyik Tagunk videófelvételt akar készíteni az adott küldetésünkről - ami felkerülhet az Internetre - adjuk meg a módját, hogy profi csapatként tekintsenek ránk.

A HAF szerveren a helyes rádióadásról tréninget fogunk tartani. Kérünk minden Tag-ot megjelenni szíveskedjen az adott időpontban, ami a Fórumban közölve lesz.

 HAF Rádiózási Protokoll:

 Az idők folyamán egy olyan rádiókommunikációs protokoll alakult ki, amely lehetővé teszi akár egység szinten, akár az egyedi katonának is, hogy hatékonyan kommunikáljon rádión keresztül, még a legrosszabb tűzharcban is. Míg a rádió protokoll részleteiben változik országról országra, és még akár egységről egységre is, van néhány alapvető előírás, amelyek mindenhol megtalálhatóak, minden körülmények között alkalmazhatóak. Ezen szabályok a HAF Klán-ban a következők:

 1, - Küldetések előtt rádió-Chek!

Felszerelés ellenőrzésekor csinálj rádió-chek-et a saját rádióddal - amennyiben van nálad,
vagyis adott a rádió használata! - a szakaszod megadott rádiófreqvenciáján!

Példa:

  SzakaszPK: - Alpha Team, itt Szakaszparancsnok! Név szerint kérek rádióellenőrzést! (rádió-chek)
  SzakaszPK: - Kerék rádió-chek!
  Kerék: - Kerék jelen!...vagy: - Itt Kerék,vetted Pk?
  SzakaszPK: - Kerék vettem...McGregor rádió-chek!
  McGregor: - McGregor jelen!
  SzakaszPK: - McGregor vettem, Devil rádió-chek...és így tovább, az adott szakasz minden tagjára   vonatkozóan. 

2, - Gondolkodj, mielőtt beszélsz!
Fontos, hogy tudd, mit fogsz mondani, mielőtt használod a rádiót.Természetesen egyes adott egységeken belül - a rádióforgalmazáson kívül - arról folyik beszélgetés amiről akartok, vagy amit a SzakaszParancsnok engedélyez!
Ezt a fajta közlést kerüljük:
-Halló Bravo...Igen...ööö...Látunk itt egy pár embert, azt hiszem ellenség. Most éppen...
azt mondanám körülbelül 200 méterre lehetnek tőlünk 11 órára, neked 12-re vagy ilyesmi...
És vannak úgy körülbelül, talán ...6...vagy 10-en. Úgy látom, felétek mennek...mi lőhetjük őket?
...vagy mi a parancs?. Vége.
Helyes rádiózás:
Alpha Team: - Alpha hívja Bravo-t,vétel!
Bravo Team: - Itt Bravo,vétel!
Alpha Team: - Ellenséges kontakt,járőrök, 6 fő, 200 méterre, 120 fok,felétek mennek,Bravo vetted? Vétel.
Egyszerűsített formája:
-Bravo,Bravo itt Alpha. 6 fő, 200 méterre, 120 fokra felétek halad,vétel.
-Alpha,itt Bravo Team, vettem,látjukVége.

3, - Fogd rövidre és egyszerűre!
Komplex, terjengős kommunikációt rádión keresztül kerülni kell. Az üzeneteknek egyszerűknek
és lényegre törőknek kell lenniük. Megfelelő hangerővel, általánosan mindenki számára érthetően
közöld amit kell.
Példa:
Bravo Team: - Bravo hívja Alpha-t,vétel!
Alpha Team: - Itt Alpha,vétel!
Bravo Team: - Túszokat kimentettük, EVAC pontot térképen jelöltük, csatlakozzatok,vétel!
Alpha Team: - Szép munka Bravo! EVAC pontot látjuk, csatlakozunk,vége!

4, - Használj megszakításokat,fontosabb szavakat!
Nem szabad elfelejtened, hogy jelezd a többieknek, ha befejezted a beszélést, hogy a közbeszakítások és korai visszajelzések elkerülhetőek legyenek. Rádiózáskor minden esetben használjuk a "Nyugtáztam", a "Vétel", és a "Vége" szavakat, amiből tudják mások, hogy megértettük az adást, ismerjük a feladatot, végrehajtjuk amit kell, vagy mit akarunk, milyen közlésre számítunk, és ami a legfontosabb befejeztük az adást!

5, - Bármilyen közlendőd van, ne szólj bele más rádióadásába!
Várd meg amíg befejezik, aztán hívd akit akarsz, mondd ami fontos! Ezen szabály az érthetetlen rádiózás elkerülése végett alkalmazandó.

6, - Rossz információ esetén helyesbíteni kell!
Előfordul hogy helytelen információt kapunk, és ezt adjuk tovább. Ilyenkor helyesbíteni kell.
Példa:
Bravo Team: - Bravo hívja Alpha-t,vétel!
Alpha Team: - Itt Alpha,vétel!
Bravo Team: - Észak felől páncélos érkezik, látjátok, vétel!
Alpha Team: - Várj Bravo, nézem!...Nem látom a páncélost Bravo!
Bravo Team: - Alpha helyesbítek,ismétlem helyesbítek, Páncélos támadás Kelet-Észak-Kelet
felől!...

Kérnénk minden HAF Tag-ot ezen egyszerű szabályok betartására amennyire lehetséges, segítsük az újonnan csatlakozó Tagokat,vagy Vendégjátékosokat a szabályzat megismerésére, használatára. Köszönjük a megértéseteket, figyelmeteket!

Configuration

  • Make sure Caps Lock key is not used for talking in TeamSpeak
  • Turn off voice over network (VON) in ARMA 3 or change key to different than Caps Lock (to avoid voice doubling).
  • Open the plugin list in Team Speak: Settings > Plugins.
    1. Enable Task Force Arma 3 Radio.
    2. Recommended to disable ACRE and radio ts ARMA3.ru version if they are installed, to avoid conflicts.
    3. Just in case – there is a Reload All button at the bottom left to restart all the plugins.
  • Make sure the volume of alerts is not turned off in Team Speak: Options > Payback > Sound Pack Volume - set a positive value.
  • Start the game with @CBA_A3 & @task_force_radio add-ons (Community Base Addons: A3 Beta & Task Force Arrowhead Radio). It can be done by adding the mod names to the game shortcut after the EXE file …\arma3.exe -mod=@CBA_A3;@task_force_radio, however, it is recommended to enable the necessary mods in the game settings (Settings -> Expansions).
  • Join the same channel with other players using the radio, or you will be navigated to the TaskForceRadio channel, if there is one at the start of a mission.

If you’ve got the same nick both in the game profile and TeamSpeak - plugin will change your nickname in TS during the game.

Make sure your game nickname contains at least 3 characters and doesn't contain @.

It is not recommended to use the plugin with simultaneous connection to multiple servers in TeamSpeak.

It is recommended to disable the TeamSpeak built-in alert sounds: Options> Notifications> Sound Pack: "Sounds Deactivated". To use this option, restart TeamSpeak.

Underwater transceiver All 32-41kHz / 70-300 m. (depending on waves) To enter the frequency, press MODE, enter a value and press ADV. You can change the reception volume by the button on the right side of the device.

Not all radios presented here, also next airborne 40km radios are supported : "AN/ARC-201", "AN-ARC-164", "MR6000L"

Personal and long range radios of one faction support a single protocol, therefore they can communicate with each other. If the transmission is carried out from the personal one – the sound will be high-frequency. In the case of long range transmission – it’ll be low-frequency.

Radio propagation is affected by terrain. Worst case - if you right behind the steep hill. If you go from hill edge into direction from transmitter you will get better signal propagation. Best case - line of sight.

Personal and long range radios support transmitting and receiving on two channels simultaneously. By pressing "Setup additional channel" switch on radio current channel will be marked as additional. After switching to another channel you will hear both - active and additional channels. It is possible to setup different stereo modes for active and additional channels. Use 'T' to transmit on additional channel of personal radio, 'Y' - for long range radio.

Radios distribution
  • By default, a long range radio is given to squad leaders. If a player is wearing a backpack – he will automatically put it on the ground.

  • A short range radio is given to players who have ItemRadio in the inventory. Radio distribution may take a few seconds (follow messages in the center of the screen).

Vehicles
  • A long range radio is available for a driver, commander, shooter, and pilot assistant. Not all the vehicles support built-in radios.

  • Each vehicle slot has its own radio, which must be configured separately. If you plan to change the position in a vehicle – configure the radio in all the slots beforehand (for instance, on a driver or shooter slot).

  • Vehicles are classified into open and closed (isolated). If you are in an isolated vehicle, you will not hear voices from outside (and vice versa). However, if you turn out of the vehicle, you will hear voices both from inside and outside.

Radio interception
  • Radio can be taken from killed players, and given to each other. Thus, they retain all the settings (channels, frequency, volume).

It is recommended to take radios opening the inventory at the place where it is (so that it is not lost because of the game bugs).

  • In vehicles radio settings are also saved.
  • By default, radios of each faction use their own encryption codes, so you will not hear enemy talks, even setting the enemy’s frequency. To listen to the enemy’s net (and talk on the air) - it’s necessary by any means to capture an enemy radio station.

To listen to an enemy’s long range radio (backpack) it is recommended to be in your own vehicle. In this case, you will be able to listen to the enemy’s net using a backpack and transmit broadcast to your allies using the radio in the vehicle as the active one.

Divers
  • You can not talk underwater (even wearing a diving suit). However, at close distance your companion can hear some indistinct speech (exception - if you are underwater in an isolated vehicle).
  • Being underwater, you can faintly hear muffled voices on land.
  • Use an underwater transceiver for communication among divers.
  • You can not use radio communication underwater (neither to talk nor to hear). If you want to pass some message on land - surface. Exception - submarine in the periscope depth (divers can use a long range radio there).
Plugin operation modes

The plugin supports two operation modes - serious and lightweight modes.

  • Lightweight mode — is a default mode. It is designed mainly for cooperative games. Its special feature is that using the plugin players can hear the dead, users not playing, users playing on a different server and users playing without the plugin avoiding the radio (just like with TeamSpeak). This makes games against people less convenient, but allows your friend to easily find out where you play, what's your frequency, etc. Naturally, those who play on the same server with activated addons and plugins will hear each other according to "radio laws": taking into account the radio frequency and distance.

  • Serious mode — designed for games, where players act against other players. To enable it, you need to create a TeamSpeak channel called TaskForceRadio (password – 123). Players must enable the radio plugin, go to the server and plan the mission joining parties’ channels. At the start of the mission in a few seconds players will be directed to TaskForceRadio channel. In this case, players will hear only live players with the enabled plugin playing on the same server. Dead players, in turn, can communicate with each other. In case of a dead player respawn - he will hear only live players again. After the game ends, the players are transferred to the channel used for planning before the mission start.

Solving problems
  • Pipe error 230 - most likely you’ve forgot to enable the plugin in TeamSpeak.
  • In TS the plugin is red and not loaded - most likely you will have to update TeamSpeak.
  • Try to reaload plugin.
  • Caps Lock actions aren’t working - perhaps because of gaming keyboards, where Caps Lock code is different. Try to change the active keys (by editing the userconfig).
  • If due to an error or something else you cannot hear other players any more, even outside the game, open Setup 3D Sound in TeamSpeak and click Center All.
  • To eliminate possible errors with the plugin, developers may need the TeamSpeak log. To copy it, select Tools -> Client Log, select all the checkboxes above and, selecting all the text by CTRL A, copy it to the clipboard.
  • If TeamSpeak stops working (Heaven forbid!) using the plugin - it shows a window with a description where you can find a dump (the path to the file). I would be very grateful to receive this file.
To TeamSpeak servers admins

To be on the safe side, reduce the level of flood protection: Right-click on the server> Edit Virtual Server> More> Anti Flood, set 30, 300, 3000 values (top to bottom).

To Developers

If this implementation ever becomes popular, it’d be great to avoid piles of incompatible forks. For this reason, if you’d like to contribute to the project, contact me - it is very likely that your implementations will be merged to the main branch. Looking forward to your Pull Requests :)

1. General Guidelines

  • No-one can really tell you the best settings for you as it is up to your computers build and your personal preference, this is meant as a guide only to help you make decisions. Running at the settings recommended however will yield good results both in performance and visuals.
  • MSI Afterburner (MSI AB) is a good tool to help you tune your settings when you enable the Memory Usage for the On-Screen Display (OSD). MSI AB can also show your FPS to help you discern if a particular setting is giving you a gain or a loss.
  • After changing a setting and waiting a few seconds your FPS OSD will catch up so you can quickly see if you get a gain or loss.
  • Use ArmA3Mark to fine tune your settings how you like and performance you are happy with.
  • For recording footage I recommend any of these solutions: Fraps Alternative: Dxtory, Fraps Alternative: MSI Afterburner, Fraps KILLER: AVerMedia Live Gamer HD or Fraps KILLER: Nvidia ShadowPlay.

2. General System Optimization

  • Disable CPU Parking, to help steady performance.
  • Use ProcessLasso (or RadeonPro with AMD GPU) to set ArmA 3 to always run on High Priority, and help steady performance.
  • Enabling the 3GB switch on 32-bit Windows XP/Vista may improve performance/stability.
  • Using Razer GameBooster may improve your performance.
  • Check out the free PC Maintainance, Security and Utility apps here to keep your PC running tip-top.
  • The TweakGuides Tweaking Companion is all you will ever need to tweak and maintain Windows.
  • Steam gives you the option to install ArmA to a different internal Hard Disk Drive, this helps to improve load times and stability.
  • Update to the latest PhysX driver, not necessary but good habit. Current 21/09/2013.
  • Update to the latest beta drivers for AMD or nVidia to get the best performance.

3. General Settings

Sampling: Use 100% unless you have a very specific reason. *
Texture Quality (HDD/GPU): High to Ultra, High stops a lot of the building pop-in Ultra basically eliminates it.**
Objects Quality (CPU/GPU): High to Ultra,, on a higher setting will reduce object pop-in but comes at the cost of frames.**
Terrain Quality (CPU/GPU): Standard to High, higher means more frame lag for not much gain visually or otherwise.**

Shadow Quality (GPU): DISABLED or High+, lower settings seem to be worse, Ultra seems to give best performance.
Particles Quality (GPU): Standard or High, Ultra seems to have no effect on frames.
Cloud Quality (GPU): Low, this setting is superfluous unless you are really into flying.
PIP (GPU): Low or DISABLED, while better than it was previously keep in mind that it still consumes a lot of frames while driving for a cosmetic effect.

HDR (GPU): Low has better performance.
Dynamic Lights (GPU): Low or High, Ultra seems to have no effect on frames.

Overall (CPU/HDD/GPU): Use something like 1050 as Low, 1600 as Standard, 2150 as High, 2700 as Very High and 3800 as Ultra.**
Object (CPU/HDD/GPU): Use something like 858 as Low, 1105 as Standard, 1353 as High, 1601 as Very High and 2097 as Ultra.**
Shadow (GPU): Leave as 100 or off.


* nVidia users can test setting Sampling to 200% and Anti-Aliasing to x2 for better performance than AA at x8.
** These settings have the largest effect on your performance.

4. Display Settings

Display Mode: Use Fullscreen window if you are streaming, else Fullscreen is fine.
Resolution: Max this, it is almost always better to run at native resolution.
Aspect Ratio: Change this to match your monitor.
VSYNC: Set to DISABLED unless you are experiencing screen-tearing or somehow have a high spec 60+ FPS computer.
Interface Size: Up to your personal preference.
Brightness: Up to your personal preference.
Gamma: Up to your personal preference.

5. AA & PP Settings

Bloom (GPU): Purely cosmetic, set to whatever you'd like recommended 100.
Radial Blur (GPU): motion blur on objects, recommend off or 25.
Rotation Blur (GPU): motion blur, recommend off or 12.5.
Depth of Field (GPU): is the blur effect you get when trying to look beyond your rifle or other object, recommend off or 25.
SSAO (GPU): attempts to approximate the way light radiates in real life, recommend off for performance gain.
Caustics (GPU): light rays under certain situations like on the seabed, recommend off for performance gain.

Antialiasing (GPU): Shouldn't lose much performance having on x4 as compared to x2 (x8 is for over 1080p), if while scoped there is an FPS drop lower the setting. ***
AToC (GPU): Set to DISABLED or Trees only, Grass may make your scope lag.
PPAA (GPU): DISABLED or SMAA High to Ultra, Ultra will likely not impact performance. ***
Anisotropic Filtering (GPU): High to Ultra, will most likely not impact or increase performance.

*** if you disable AA and use just SMAA you should get a similar look but improved performance.

6. ArmA3Alpha.cfg

ArmA3Alpha.cfg
Located in C:\Users\<username>\Documents\ArmA 3 Alpha\
GPU_MaxFramesAhead=4; This may help smooth your frames and/or increase performance, try settings 1-4.
GPU_DetectedFramesAhead=0; This may help smooth your frames and/or increase performance.
refresh=120; This will make VSync work better if you need it.

7. Startup Parameters

Startup Parameters
You can also use the startup parameters to increase performance slightly by right-clicking ArmA 3 in Steam > Properties > Set Launch Options and entering the following.

-cpuCount= set this to however many physical CPU's you have, usually either 2, 4 or 6.****
-exThreads= Correct info coming soon, need to test. Ballpark settings are use 7 for high end quad core CPU, 3 or 5 for mid range quad core CPU and 1 or 3 for Dual Cores. Stay tuned for updated testing results. ****
-maxMem= set this to 2047 or about 1GB (1024) less than your maximum RAM, I am not sure if higher values have an effect as I'm pretty sure 2GB is the maximum.
-maxVram= this option will tell ArmA how much Video RAM your graphics card has, not really important for it to know however.
-noBenchmark mainly for the development build this option disables any benchmarking that ArmA automatically does.
-noLogs mainly for the development build this option disables any logging that ArmA automatically does.
-noPause Does not pause the ArmA window when alt-tabbed in Fullscreen window mode, good for multi-taskers and streamers.
-noSplash gets rid of the intro stuff at startup.
-world=empty Starts up the game faster as it loads empty level.

so for instance my startup parameters look like

-cpuCount=8 -exThreads=7 -maxMem=2047 -maxVram=3071 -noBenchmark -noLogs -noPause -noSplash -world=empty

**** cpuCount and exThreads can help smooth the game by letting it know to spread the load properly.



8. ARMA 3 & GTX 500 Series Cards

Our very own L2TG found the solution to this fix for nVidia GTX 510/20/30/45/50 Ti/55/60/60 Ti/70/80/90 cards that are experiencing a black screen, while still hearing full sound (and likely full function, without screen), with or without SLI function.

9. Field of View (FOV) Settings

Use these ratios courtesy of Stabs. Open <username>.ArmA3Profile in your C:\Users\<username>\Documents\ArmA 3\ folder.

Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]



10. LOW FPS issue and fix

The main cause of abnormally low FPS is having VSYNC on, either alt-tabbing out and in of ArmA or turning it off should fix the issue.

11. Memory Flush

In ArmA you can actually flush or refresh the VRAM if you are experiencing graphical glitches or sometimes performance issues. To do this you hold down [shift] and [-], release then type in flush.

12. STEAM performance troubles and how mitigate them

Dwarden wrote:

From my own experience this is what eats most CPU from highest to lowest
  1. STEAM friend-list (even while online, just closing friend-list saves most CPU usage)
  2. STEAM chats (the more of them active the worse the overall load)
  3. STEAM updating (as uses checksums it needs some CPU and I/O, so make sure nothing is updating)
  4. STEAM overlay
  5. STEAM IM (switch yourself to OFFLINE for lowest CPU usage)
  6. STEAM website (if you keep website open and minimize, it still keeps playing the flash animations for example, so ideally you visit e.g. your profile page as last)
+ then set STEAM to lower priority than arma3.exe


13. Stuttering Fixes

Some AMD users may experience stuttering during gameplay, the fix seems to be disabling Tessellation in either Catalyst Control Center or RadeonPro.

Alternatively virus scanning tools may be causing the issue, try disabling them while playing but remember to re-enable them!

Additionally it is possible is could be your overclock causing stuttering, specifically the VCore setting, changing to auto may smooth it out while still allowing the overclock.

14. SweetFX

Basically you can use SweetFX to improve the colours of ArmA 3 making it more pleasant to look at, I recommend just using the LumaSharpen and Vibrance (or maybe up to 0.60) values that come already enabled.

Both AMD and nVidia users can use the SweetFX Configurator to more easily install and manage SweetFX, however AMD users can use RadeonPro instead to even more easily manage it (this however requires SweetFX 1.4 at the moment).

 



15. tbbmalloc for ArmA

tbbmalloc for ArmA is an experimental custom memory allocator modification that can potentially increase performance. It requires a 64bit OS and at least 8GB of RAM, I gain an extra 5-7 average FPS in ArmA3Mark. Note that you may not see any performance increase in Multiplayer as it is entirely dependent on the server, also this is very experimental and may cause crashes or the like.

17. Settings Benchmarks

Ran each setting once @ 1920x1080 and 2700 view distance unless otherwise stated, using ArmA3Mark on patch 1.00, with a control sample on the lowest settings possible. When looking at the results if they are close it means there is probably no loss in using the higher setting.

Please note that these benchmarks are not scientific as I only ran each setting once, and also because the scenarios can't test every condition.

Low Control - 80

19. Hardware Recommendations

In this section I will suggest hardware that I feel is the best fit for ArmA 3, this is as unbiased and as informed as possible based on my experience and the experience of community members. Again this is solely aimed at ArmA 3 not any other games.

CPU: High clock speed Intel CPU's are really the way to go here, either the i5 4670 or i7 4770. You would only get the i7 if you will also be doing multimedia like Adobe or video editing. There is also a 'k' variant for each CPU allowing you to more easily overclock for a little more cash.
GPU: The best choice for this slot will be an Nvidia 760+ series, the 2 reasons being ShadowPlay a free screen recorder that performs much better than FRAPS and AMD GPU's having an inflated price right now due to bitcoin miners demand.
RAM: 8GB+ of the fastest RAM you can afford from a reputable company like Corsair, G.Skill or Kingston.
HDD: Having ArmA 3 on an SSD really helps with load times and texture streaming with the best example being a Samsung 840 EVO.
MOBO: Generally said you want a Z87 MoBo for that Intel CPU the best bang for your buck being ASRock, with Gigabyte boards being among the most reliable around, while high end Asus boards have a feature called Sonic Radar which displays visually where audio in the game is coming from.
PSU: Any Bronze+ rated PSU with enough wattage for your system from a reputable vendor will do the job with standouts for me being Antec, Corsair and Enermax.
AUDIO CARD: If you would like to record teamspeak on a separate track (with Dxtory) you need a sound card capable of stereo mix, an ASUS Xonar DS does the trick for the right price.
VIDEO CAPTURE CARD: This is only necessary if you want to record with no in-game frame loss or don't have ShadowPlay, best of the bunch is probably the AVerMedia Live Gamer HD.

CASE: Cases are a very personal choice but favourites of mine include the Antec Three Hundred Two and the Bitfenix Phenom/Prodigy
CPU COOLER: For a CPU cooler I really recommend the Corsair Water Coolers, the H60/80i/100i depending on your needs and budget.
FAN CONTROLLER: The BitFenix Recon is a great and inexpensive fan controller for those looking for something to monitor and adjust their case fans
CASE FANS: Noctua, Noctua, Noctua, best fans for CFM and quietness, cannot recommend them enough.

20. Overclocking

THIS STEP IS NOT NECESSARY AND CAN RESULT IN DAMAGE TO YOUR HARDWARE, I WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THAT MAY OCCUR AS A RESULT!!!

First up I will say that this step is not for the faint of heart, if you do not do this correctly you run the risk of destroying your hardware and I will not be held responsible for that outcome. I also will not link any guides as overclocking is different for every CPU/GPU/Motherboard setup. Overclocking should only be done with a supported CPU/GPU/Motherboard and advanced custom cooling, as you need the temperatures to be within operational norm. Do not overclock if you are in any way uncomfortable!

So now that I've established that this is a potentially dangerous step to take, you can see good results from overclocking your CPU, going from 3.9Ghz to 4.3Ghz on my 3770k I saw an 8-10 average FPS increase in ArmA3Mark. Even going from 3.9Ghz to 4.0Ghz will see a notable increase as by default it runs 3.9Ghz on the first core only. Having higher speed RAM also goes helps to increase your FPS, in my quick tests 1600Mhz 7-8-8-24 was 78FPS, 1866Mhz 8-9-9-24 was 81FPS, 2133Mhz 9-11-11-31 was 82FPS with 2400Mhz 10-12-12-31 being 84FPS (do not overclock your RAM, as it can lead to all sorts of trouble, this information is to be used when purchasing RAM). The same results cannot be found however in GPU overclocking, it does absolutely nothing for the benchmark giving back the same results. So CPU overclocking yes, faster RAM kits yes, but GPU overclocking no.

Please note that when overclocking it is better to be conservative and stay at the default voltage, this will help make sure your CPU does not have a reduced lifespan. While overclocking make sure to only do so in increments of 100Mhz and to run a prime95 Blend test for 1 hour with HWMonitor in the background to check the temperature, when the test fails or the temperature goes up drastically it is time to stop and dial it back about 2 increments. After that you have to do a 24 hour prime95 Blend to make sure it is stable. Again, do not overclock if you are in any way uncomfortable!

Again I cannot stress how important it is to have proper advanced custom cooling on your overclocking supported CPU/GPU, something like the Air Cooler I am running on my rig or a Water Cooler like Corsair's H60/80i/100i will do the job, while on GPU's a Custom Cooler is always recommended over the Reference Cooler. Also performance in Multiplayer is still very much dependent on server performance so results will vary in that environment.

THIS STEP IS NOT NECESSARY AND CAN RESULT IN DAMAGE TO YOUR HARDWARE, I WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THAT MAY OCCUR AS A RESULT!!!
