Man, just when I thought I was getting things going, my board's 2 dimm slots decide to up and go bad. I just got my backplates and the mcp35x2 dual top will be here tomorrow. Now to wait for a new board... argh.

Will try playing around with it later some more. I know this baby can do 1200/1600 like my first card -- It's just real picky on the voltage/clocks even without crossfire enabled. If I add too much voltage and temps are fine, it bsods out.


 

Bal, I suggest to sync both cards BIOS with this one;

 

  

 

Asus.HD7970.3072.120104.zip 40k .zip file

 

 

 

I have no way to dissect the content or what it fixes. I just speculate it fixes ASIC ID for Drivers and Tweak Apps to read it correctly.

2 DIMM slots *poof* at once is very unlikely, re-seat CPU and re-set CMOS and check again.

I Just ran the exact same settings and scored 4FPS more so it looks like there's something majorly wrong with your clocks dude.
And its not the memory clock since ive already tested the affect of overclocking it has on this game in this thread somewhere which is not much at all.
My 1920x1080p run:
338
EDIT: Actually looking at all the black line frame spikes in your graph, i would say your 1390 mhz overclock is definitely unstable, find the best clock that works and use that man, no use having a king clock if its not doing you good.

Maybe drivers? I just ran through a bunch of loops at different clock speeds and my average keeps going down like it should. Here is what I get at 1225/1600 which I know to be very stable after multiple benchmarks and hours of gaming. CPU is a 2600k@4.9GHz so I don't think that should be holding me back.

700

I should be beating you at this clockspeed but I'm 6-7fps short of your numbers. I verified using GPU-Z that the clocks are really what I set them at. I don't see any dips in the GPU-Z graph indicating Powertune is coming into play. Which driver version are you using? I'm using RC11 from AMD's website.

They did in this case. Will not boot with those two slots occupied regardless of CPU, brand of sticks, psu, etc. I thought it might have been my chip, so glad it wasn't lol, my 2600k is a decent clocker. I'm probably going to swap in my other revo from a spare rig.

I've never had cause to use it, but isn't one of the features of Asus boards the physical "Mem-OK" switch on the board? Not sure if that applies here, but thought it was worth mentioning.

You might have touched the CPU block or tubing and the CPU got wiggled. There's just no way out of blue *poof*.

Yea I've never used that button either and in this case it was useless as well since the board won't boot with the two bad dimm slots populated. Actually, just one of the two slots will prevent it from booting.
