Frequent lag/FPS drop on auto save
I'm able to smoothly run the game on maxed out settings at 60 fps, however I get a very noticeable "micro freeze" whenever the game auto-saves. To be more precise, whenever I find an item, a new area, or get XP, the game auto saves and the entire game freezes for approximately a second or two.

Has anyone been able to remedy this issue?

My game crashes completely in all of these situations and nobody seemed to want to help me when I asked, I hope you have better luck than I did.

Get a faster HD / SSD

My HDD is a Western Digital and is only 3 years old. It is 7200 RPM. Is that sufficient and what is yours by comparison?

I don't seem to have this problem, avg 75 fps with everything set to as high as it can go. I don't seem to have the micro freeze that you say that you have. what cpu,gpu,ram do you have?

I do not have any issue like that, but I am using a 1TB Samsung 840 EVO SSD.

My CPU is also liquid cooled.

you may not agree with me but trust me when i say your ram is slow and you will get much better fps when you get ram at lest to 1600mhz. there was this game that i had bad fps on and then i got ram that runs at 2133 and all the freezing and pausing stopped as soon as i got better ram. also make sure that your ram that you have right now is supported by your motherboard. what i mean by this is your ram might not be supported by your motherbaord and that might be the reason why you are freezing is cause your ram is having problems working in that MB.

plus your ram might be 1600mhz try going into the bios and see if there is a button that can change your speed, it should say somthing along the lines of.
1333
1600
1866
2000
2133
2400
2600
3000

rtight now i believe your ram speed can be changed in the bios, try if you can to change your ram speed to something higher. you will get better fps with faster ram, a lot of people that ram speed wont have anything to do with your fps they are wrong.

That's reasonable. I'm pretty sure the sticks I have in there now are 1333 mhz by default and I've never actually heard of anyone overclocking their RAM. Is that really possible? I think it's just cheap RAM and I would be better off upgrading to something newer and better. But how do I find out what speeds my motherboard supports?

Thanks for the input btw. I appreciate your help.

go to your motherbaords web site find your motherboard on there site, and then there should be a tab for ram, in there it will tell you what ram will work in your board.

yes you can overclock your ram. if you still have your motherboards user guide in there it will tell you what ram will work in your board.

i had 8 gb of ram running at 1600 mhz must of my games ran just find but would have freezing, and bsod.I then found out that the ram that i had did not work the right way in this new motherboard that i had gotten. It then took me a week to find the right ram i would of gone with 2400 but newegg did not have that ram so i went with g-skill ripjaws z ram 16 running at 2140.

for you 8 gb of ram running at 1600 should do, if you upgrade your ram and you are still having problems, then i wont be able to help cause i don't know about intel chips. I only know amd chips.

Overclocking your ram is fairly easy depending on your mobo. Sometimes by default it will run at 1333mhz even though the ram is rated at 1600mhz. Check your bios to see if your ram supports XMP. If it does, just enable that and you should not really need to overclock it.
