I use Fraps Version 3.2.3 Build 11796 to record my gameplay videos to upload to Youtube. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium x64 and I also have an Intel Core i7-950 (3.06Ghz), an Nvidia Geforce GTX 260, 8GBs (DDR3 1066 Mhz) of RAM, and a 500GB (7200rpm, 3gb/s) Western Digital internal hard drive. The game I'm recording atm is Assassin's Creed 2. Sometimes my recording goes silky smooth. No lag, no freezes - meaning sometimes I can record for hours on end with zero freezes, skips etc. And other times I experience freezes and skips every 5 minutes or so. What can account for this? I did read that it would be better to record to a drive other than the one I am reading the game from, but since it's silky smooth sometimes for hours, and since I don't have that much money on me at the moment, I would like to know if anyone has an idea what I can do to keep fraps recording silky smooth. Also, would opening the computer case, in an air conditioned room cause freezes and skips?
