Is there any way to cap the framerate so you can play without vsync, while avoiding the obnoxious bugs it introduces?

I find the vsync input lag incredibly vexing, but physics explosions and the water bug are nearly as bad. Hopefully Bethesda addresses this soon.

If you check the Skyrim Nexus I believe there is a mod for just that :)

I like to use this app:

It is a trial version, but that only means a 10 second countdown before it unlocks each time. I use it for the frame limiter to limit video fps to 30. Use it with any game. Or you can find a Skyrim fps limiter at skyrimnexus.

Link for fps limiter here:

*Note* If you use this you can't use any other apps which hook into the game graphics (such as fraps or xfire to display fps) otherwise the game won't start.

Yeah, the FPS limiter from works perfectly! Now i'm just fiddling to see how high I can get the cap before the bugs start occurring. 75 seems okay, but 120 will trigger it. Shame, because 120 is desirable because it almost looks vsynced...
