The only things ive added in the last couple of weeks are my 7950 and my samsung 830 ssd so one o the other is the culprit

What exact issues are you talking about? The screen flicker is a driver issue that affects a lot of AMD users. Not really that big a deal IMO. As far as "not performing like it should", in what way? A 7950 should easily outperform a 580...

Well all of my lightnings are here, but it seems it's damn near impossible to do quadfire lightnings with the way their fans stick out and the gaps on my Rampage IV weren't enough without using a spacer of some sort to keep them seperated. Even after doing that, the temps on the middle 2 cards skyrocketed, so I'm awaiting the lightning blocks from EK which were supposed to be released Friday, but aren't up on their site yet. With a nice loop, these 4 lightnings should definitely give my quad SLI 680s a run for their money. It seems I was getting dangerously close to the VRAM limit of my 2GB 680s @ 2560x1440. When it becomes an issue of VRAM and not GPU compute power, I have no choice but to look elsewhere for a solution. Depending upon the 4GB 680 enthusiast models that are released in the future, I may switch back, but as of now, I'm back to AMD. I threw the 12.7 drivers in since I heard they were the best thus far, but it seems I'm having a little bit of a scaling issue as far as GPU usage goes, even with just 2 lightnings installed (which is what I'm forced to use until the waterblocks arrive).

Oh and might I mention the DL-DVI issue gave me a hell of a time with this Catleap monitor. rolleyes.gif

I had that same problem, it annoys the hell out of me.

My 7950 was suttering and jittering alot with almost every game with crazy FPS dips. No matter how slow you moved your mouse left or right what ever. The game play was not smooth what so ever was having a hard time maxing out any game . I just installed my 7950 into my second PCIE 3.0 slot and what do you know battlefield 3 is running superb now. everything Ultra. No AA smooth as butter. I am going to test further but I think my first PCIE 3.0 slot is shot

Or it is a software chipset issue?

Btw, who else is using Trixx on here? Decided to try it because I do have Sapphire cards after all and I noticed that I can overvolt to 1382mV indicated whereas AB would only give me 1300mV. Unfortunately my benching SSD is borked from driver install/uninstalls so I'm going to do a fresh Win7 install tonight and load up the latest 12.7 drivers. Can't wait to really start pushing this new water loop! Running Heaven 3.0 at 1250MHz and 1275mV and my temps never got over 49C... thumb.gif

I should try that maybe it is the Displayport. I get the same thing too my screen shuts off randomly too. Are you saying with DVI you don't have this issue any more ?

Yep. Using DL DVI in my 950D now and the monitor shut downs stopped.

can you guys tell me something. I keep hearing that going DVI over HDMI is a way better choice but why? I run a 42 inch LED LCD and It does not support DVI so maybe I should grab a PC monitor and go DVI?
