6950 CFX , is OC FOR BF3 ok

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I've 3 24" screens running eye-infinity, what OC should I aim for so I can run at near max or max setttings?

The 6950 (x3) are unlocked and WC, i've a good setup 360 rad 6 fans etc (only gpus are cooled, ram is passive so can't go mad), temps never above 50 with fans at a quite level

at the mo i'm runing at 900/1350 @ 1.175v

i've just used racer x to setup CCC. and i'll be running this 24/7 so i don't want to got too high, it would be nice if it lasted 3/4 years

You should have no issues where it is. That's a great setup.

lol Running eyefinity on BF3 with Cf 6950 at near max settings is impossible even Medium will make these GPu scream for their deaths that resolution is hard to get stable FPs with 6950 or even 6970

You should be able to get some good FPS and max settings with your GPU's -on 1 monitor lol

Are you talking about max settings in beta or the true release max settings? In beta with my 2 x 6950s (stock speeds, not unlocked) and max settings with eyefinity I'm using about 95-98%ish on both cards with up to 93% load on all six cores of my 1100t. Get about 35 fps average in Metro outside. Granted this is Metro and there's no areas with monster view distance. With OC to 6970 speeds I do about 38-40. I'd imagine your 3x6950s should handle it fine with just mild OCs....not sure if you would run into a bottleneck on the 2600k (really no clue....I don't know too much about the 2600k)

That's a lot of resolution to Anti Alias for ANY setup. Might have to make some sacrifices.
