managed to install 12.7 drivers with 12.7 CAP 1.

increased BF3 frames same level testing - start of campaign from avg of 30 to now 40 fps.

still everything on stock and that is a cd installation of BF3 as well, not the updated one.

Found a lot of reviews on other sites, techpowerup, guru3d, ananadtech etc... most of them seem to be around the same mark with my settings.

Still crashing everytime i attempt a run. installed MSI afterburner to check usage, temps, frames - seems to be using the crossfire and both cards in use however with MSI running in background i couldn't get past the train area since it just kept crashing.

this is driving me nuts, the only game with this many issues.

Metro 2033 - i believe is MORE demanding and yet i was able to run it without any crashing / issues.

Could i need the updated patch for BF3? could my issue be somehow related to it being a fresh install off the DVD's/CD's and not the latest downloaded version?????

if anyone can give me some hints as to what to test that would be great! perhaps some setting changes need to be made via CCC catalyst control in the 3d settings area?????

thanks all! for the help so far, that TDR delay and the ulps have helped alot, at least i believe so, hopefully these next changes should iron it all out.

thanks again,

Bro BF3 is one big disastrous piece of coding. EVERYBODY with varying builds reports crashing on the forums and other places. It may not even be related to your particular set up. I have found that with one setup, it crashed all the time, it ruined the game for me. Then I swapped out my Phenom 1090T for an i5, and also swapped my crossfire 6950's for a 7950, and BAM, no more crashing. Don't rely on BF3 for ANY sort of stability testing apart from artefacts and over heating. People may disagree, but that would most probably be because they never experienced the famous "bf3.exe has stopped working" "feature" of that putrid piece of software. Just my 2 cents.

The only time BF3 ever crashed for me was back when I first got it in October last year on my SLI 580 setup. It has never crashed since on various different setups of mine....

Anyone else get lockups when starting GPU-Z 0.62 with the new 12.6 WHQL in XFire? I'm getting it randomly, not on a regular basis.

I have had great experiences with HIS ICE Q versions of previous cards. Real cool and quiet. Also Sapphire Vapour/toxic edition I think will be very good. If I was going to pick up one that is air cooled it would be between those two.

I can't usually play more that a few hours before bf3 hard locks and goes berrrrrr with the sound. I know it has nothing to do with my setup of clocks its just ****ty programing. I heard the best solution is a new sound card and disabling onboard HD audio.
