post #10681 of 38701
What kind of FPS are you guys getting with your 7950/70 in BF3?

Im wondering if my stock clock on my 8120 is holding my FPS down a little

Wake Island Rush while in fire fights/explosions going on I've seen it stay about 45-50 ish FPS


EDIT: Gulf of Oman lots of explosions/building rubble flying drops to 36

So, i was reading over on the ASUS ROG forum, it seems like the 7970 crashes might be due the PCIe Gen3 issue
by default the cards are detected as PCIe Gen3
but some people having similar problems as many of us owners of 7970 are having, they reported the card to run more stable when forcing the BIOS to run the PCIe slots to run as Gen2
i'm gonna try that when i get home to see if i can finally play a full game without crashing on me at random times
you can point me out where this conversation is taking over? (lol just had a bsod typing this..)

I tried that, it doesn't help

Thanks, I'll check it out

ARGHH!! Microstutter! I just started playing AC:Revelations and the microstutter has reared it's ugly head. I did this.

1. Disable XFire, Restart
2. Enable XFire,, Restart
3. Start game, disable Vsync.
4. No more microstutter???

Don't know why this works. I thought enabling VSync would stop the microstutter. Exact opposite in AC: Revelations. No such problem with Brotherhood though (tested just to check).

Haven't tested any other games yet. Was away from home on work for a week.

Hey guys, so I just got my Crossfire 7950s, and I have them under water. I installed the 12.4 drivers, and then installed the newests CAPs, but when I go to start 3DMark 11 (basic edition, up to date) the cards do not increase in usage according to Afterburner 2.2. Then 3DMark starts in full screen, and the system BSODs. Is there a known fix for this? Should I roll the drivers back to 11.9? Thanks for the help guys, can't wait to see what these guys can do! Oh, if anyone has a guide to get me started on overclocking the two of them, please share smile.gif Are there any differences with these new cards? Or should I jsut mind the core clocks, voltage, and memory clocks? Are there any features that I should enable/disable to get the most out of them? Thanks a lot for any help!

Are you overclocked? If not, request an exchange from your store/supplier. If so, increase volts or back off on clocks.

How high can i, reasonably safely, up my GPU and VRAM voltages?

I got a reference 3GB Sapphire HD7970 with a Accelero 7970 in a case with amazing airflow customized.

Running the following in MSI AB which is stable as a rock in MW3, BF3, Heaven, 3Dmark, hell even Furmark.
Core: 1250Mhz @ 1.262v
VRAM: 1750Mhz @ 1.612v
Temps Core:
Idles around 31-33c at 2 screens.
MW3 / BF3 / Heaven / 3DMark get it up to around 45-48c.
VRM's hit about 60-65c according to AIDA64.
The AAX7970s fans are always at 100% cause they are quiet as hell anyways.

So, what i was wondering, can i push beyond 1.3v as my card is JUST not stable at like, 1300Mhz with 1.299v..

I wanna aim for something like, 1325-1350Mhz with ~1.35v.

Also, VRAM voltage, how high can I push that with the AAXs heatsinks? 1750Mhz is stable on 1.612v but when I go anything near 1800Mhz even 1.625v wont do it.

Can I go to like, ~1.65v+ and go for the 2000Mhz?
Thundahcat.
