    So I want to get back into playing Minecraft and when I went to play it on single player it runs very well but it seems to freeze every few seconds for like a milisecond. It pisses me off very much. I even set every graphic detail to Max FPS, smooth lighting off, Graphics: Fast. It still does the same thing. I have extra ram when playing. I even have a pretty nice computer. Here are some specs:

    Intel i7 Core CPU Q 740 @ 1.74 GHz (Around 2.8 GHz overclocked)

    6.0 GB Ram

    ATI Radeon HD 5870

    I run Bad Company 2, Starcraft 2, WoW, on the highest settings without lag. I don't know why it seems to freeze. I also deleted all minecraft folders in the AppData directory to see if that would make a difference. I also set Priority on High, used game booster premium, used all my CPUs to run the game but nothing works. I cannot get it to stop freezing every few seconds. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Lower the settings. Minecraft doesn't need to be maxed. And it could sort your problem.

    That's what he did.
    He didn't use the max setting, he set them to allow max FPS.

    Minecraft does this to me all the time, Minecraft just doesn't have any optimization. Maybe try updating your Java, or get 1.7 (Java 1.7)?

    Max fps isn't a lower setting, Power saver is, and it is all that is generally needed.

    Try downloading the HD Texture patcher and in the tab that says how much memory to allow it, put it to 2048 or higher if you'd like

    How would the option Max FPS give you less FPS?

    Way to throw my words out of context, I never said it would decrease your framerate, but it isn't needed. The human eye can only see 60 frames per second. Power saver is less of a cpu whore.

    I see. Sorry. You made it sound like the option Max FPS was not meant to make it run more smoothly.

    I LOVE YOU!

    Hey, I have a Q720 @ 1.6 GHz , could you maybe help me overclock it? :o
