Thanks for your reply, raghu78. Then I will just leave it at that. However, getting 60fps stable is not possible in BF3 multiplayer maps (especially those air maps like caspian). I'm playing at 1080p and I will get drops down to ~35fps sometimes. Metro, however runs at about 55-120fps at any time thumb.gif

what drivers are you using . the 12.11 beta does very well in BF3. yeah min fps might be 40 fps. but avg fps would be around 60+. here is a review of caspian border maxed out at 1080 with 12.11 on HD 7900 cards. HD 7970 Ghz has a min fps of 51 and avg fps of 73.3. your HD 7950 at 1.1 Ghz will match the HD 7970 Ghz (1.05 Ghz).

It also seems to idle around 65-70*C. I understand it will run a little hotter due to more screens, but this seems a little too much. It isn't hot in my house and my Switch 810 has plenty of airflow to keep it cool. It comes stock with core clocks of 1010mhz, should I try pulling the heatsink off and re-applying TIM to it? Its ridiculously loud when gaming, I can't even hear my headphones over it. I would hate to return it because I already returned an HD 7950 today.

Anything under 90 is completely safe IMHO. The reference cards' fan profile is pretty much designed to run 80-85 degrees. But 95C is too hot and getting it while the fan is spinning at over 70% is indication that something isn't right. I get around 80 degrees with fan max at 48%, using the very same 1010MHz reference card from MSI. I only have one monitor, though, but I'd still say about 85C with fan at 50% would be more like it.

Is it a single card or do you have others in there?

I'm using the 12.11 beta 8. However, I can't match an avg. of 73fps. Running on the open field it will get me only an average of 30-40fps on a fully loaded map. Can't even match the results of that 7950 boost edition which they tested as well (61fps avg). Especially when respawning i get huge fps drops. I'm playing on a X6 1055t with 8GB Ram. =/

yeah your CPU seems to be affecting the fps badly. hardocp had a 2500k running at 4.8 Ghz. try and push your CPU as close to 4 Ghz as possible. generally min fps also is much better on core i5 than phenom.

Thanks for the replies guys, its a single card in a huge Switch 810 with a zillion fans. I've had a lot of cards in it and never had a heat issue so I believe it to be the card. There is a GTS 450 in the case as well but it is 3 slots away and there are fans blowing cool air right at the back of them. I was able to keep it around 80-85*C by changing the clocks down to the stock 925mhz rather than the OC versions 1010mhz. I will be returning it as soon as I find another card to get.

Incorrect. BF3 isat 55fps MINIMUM for me @ 1150/1550 @1.20V GPU OC and 4.5Ghz CPU OC. That is every setting at ultra including the msaa @ x4. When I up my 7950 clocks to 1200/1800 Im maxed at 60fps.

Side note...
Still working on the OP.
I'll be adding more info such as an overclocking guide and driver update posts soon.


So... Where is this overclocking guide?

Hi guys, anyone use RadeonPro?

How do you usually set the AA effects (FXAA, SMAA, sweetfx)?
