Interesting results indeed.

Could you post yours, Spykerv?

Do some testing and report back. And you will be changing the vddc, btw.
Also, do not set your core clock to 930. I was just to lazy to change mine.
564
572
Note :you will also need to set this:
591

I tried to set GPU voltage to 1.18 but TRIXX would only allow 1.181 and set CCC power to 20%. I did set the fan speed in TRIXX to Fixed at 50% and I do not think I need a Windows sidebar gadget because I have my windows gadgets disable for performance reasons.

After I enabled crossfire in CCC and then tried to change the GPU voltage in TRIXX for the 2nd bottom card I got an error message that ULPS was enabled. I saw that you can disable it in settings but decided to test Dirt 3 on just the top card only.

Dirt 3 did not crash to the desktop but the card temp got up to 73C which it when I only use CCC to set the fan to 60% is only goes up to 63C. It looks like TRIXX set the fan speed to 50% and not 60% in CCC.

Should I disable manual fan control in CCC if I enable it in TRIXX or does TRIXX just override CCC fan control?

TriXX generally overrides. And yes I did not mean for you to install the sidebar gadget as I couldn't unchecked it. Disabling ulps just makes the second card go into like a nearly power off state (don't quote me on that) and it might be safe to check that to just to check for stability. Sounds like you got it working though, just try it with two cards. Also, I don't quite understand why triXX would only give you voltage control up to 1.181. Could you post a sceenshot?

I bet I could just do it at 1.21 or something, but I'm too lazy to fully tune it.

I think I could pull off 1030/1600 at 1.3v, still testing.

Yeah they're fantastic cards tongue.gif

your current psu setup (sans 9600gt) could support either a sapphire 6990 with that, 2 more 6970s/50s with that, OR at my overclocks/overvolts, just one more gpu sadly :/

using Phaedurus psu calc (you know an actual trust worthy one) I'm pulling 775w at 25+ 1.225v so a third card is out of the option if I want to overclock.

And hey, once the 7xxx series comes out, you can either pickup that toxic or get one of the current ones ultra cheap and then bump up your graphics expectations from high to ultra tongue.gif

Did I mention we kill the 570 sli (6950 cfx) yet cost less, and the 6970 cfx goes head to head with the 580 sli yet is still cheaper? Ain't life great?

Yup I know. And I already play on ultra (bf3.) biggrin.gif If I got another 6950 it would be pointless as I think my cpu is still a bottleneck even at 3.7. If I were run trifire it would be pushing my psu to its limits. And yeah I do love how well 6950 perform for the price. Thinking of going Ivybridge-e when it comes out, but that would be hard seeing as how I'm only 14 (yup you heard right) and money is hard to come by.

fantastic age to start, I was but a wee 15 year old when I started (you can look at my first rig in my sig). I am now the glorious age of 17 and going to get a bachelors in Computer Engineering, possible double major in Electrical.

On bf3 it won't matter but most other cpu dependent games, your 955 will bottleneck like a mad man for a 6950 cfx (from an unbiased review source). But IVYE? Unless you plan on running a server or run some really intense multithreaded workload (in which case BD could be a much cheaper alternate, or pile driver), I say get IVY or SB when it goes down in April

I for one am upgrading to Ivy bridge from nehalem.

Thanks for all you help,

Unfortunately, I am still getting crashes to the desktop with both cards with Dirt 3 where the game freezes and I have to ctrl+alt+del to exit the game and then click close program which looks the same as a driver failure.

I did disable ULPS and have made sure that CCC power settings stay at 20% for each card and both cards have a GPU voltage setting of 1.181 in TRIXX. The fan speed has been set to 60% for both cards which in the past has seemed to provide more stability. I will try to get a screen shot of TRIXX tomorrow. Are there any other settings in TRIXX that would solve this problem?

Not that I know of. If you can get it to go you can try 1.2 volts, but otherwise I'm clueless. You might have to RMA. Test each card individually. If they both work, you'll have to try and find another thread/make one.

Yeah, the reason I would want IB-E is because I'm pretty sure games will be getting 6/8 core native very soon, and It would be great for folding. Also I would keep It for like 6 years so it wouldn't be a bad investment. Although I might also go piledriver or just regular IB.
