Guys, any idea why I can't run smoothly BF3 without capping the FPS? Vsynced of course it's smooth, but I can't maintain it.

I cap the FPS @54 for nearly complete removal of tearing or @56 with a little tearing and it's smooth like Vsynced.. If I let it as is, the gameplay is choppy, while the FPS has fluctuates... I tried the ForceRenderAhead and TrippleBuffering, but nothing...

Drivers 12.4 WHQL. Also, I tried The WItcher 2 without Vsync and it's smooth, not like BF3... I gave more voltage, I tried with stock, ref or OCed clocks, still nothing.

Any ETA on 12.5?

I read from a source that I have long forgot that AMD claimed to have sorted a lot of these CF bugs in 12.5.

Has the issue with the ASUS HD7970 Direct CU II card having high VRM temps when overclocked been fixed?

I ordered this card in the UK for £360 but read it overclocks poor and causes all sort of artefacting.

I can cancel my order if needs be, as I wanted the Palit Jetstream GTX680 but for £100 more I went for the 7970 instead.

Any quick replies from owners would be much appreciated as the 7970 ASUS HD7970 Direct CU II is a one day deal only.

I'm going to try 8.97 basically because my only other option at this point is a fresh OS install. Sorry guys if I'm pissing you off with my frustration, I just really, REALLY wanted to love these cards but I have had so many stupid problems it has really left a bad taste in my mouth. I know that these are great cards, I just wish the software would let them shine! It seems like I can either get good clocks for benching or I can get good performance in my games, but NEVER both at the same time and that is just frustrating as heck! Maybe 12.5 beta will work at least at stock again... redface.gif

My computer is as stable as its ever been now with 12.4 and Sapphire Trixx. I have never been able to overclock with anything like trixx , afterburner , gpu tweak now I can . Normaly I would have a bsod or just crash and coumputer just cut off because my voltage would never stick longer then 5 mins for some reason by the time i turned a game on with a overclock my cards would go back to 1.175v or go up way to high . But now im running @ 1.1ghz for gpu and 1.6ghz for memory @ 1.225v is that a good voltage for that Befor I could only run about 1030mhz without changing the voltage on all three my cards and I only used CCC to overclock cause everything else sucked .

Well 8.97 fixed my issues with Crysis 2. I'm afraid to reinstall AB though so I'll just stick to stock again for stability...
