Recently added another 6870 and it appears that my stock 965 is not keeping up. Afterburner shows 50-70% gpu usage while playing battlefield 3. When I disable Xfire the usage stays at 99% on the single card. The low gpu usage in bf3 with Xfire makes it unplayable. I was not expecting the 965 to struggle with these mid range cards. I'm running 11.12 and cap 3, both are the newest driver/software on amd's site. Would getting a better air cooler and overclocking make a noticeable difference?
