Yeah you can hear it, but its not really loud.

Should be here tomorrow thumb.gif

Been great so far. Conservative OC of 1025/1475 puts my 3D11 score @ 14063 and has been keeping BF3 at almost a near constant 120 FPS. The drivers have a long way to come and I have yet to warm up to catalyst vs Nvidia drivers but hey...what are you gonna do?! Performance overall in gaming is much smoother than in gaming with the 590 as well which I was surprised to see .

Sounds good - first thing I'm going to do (once I've figured out the supposedly horribly difficult drivers/CCC/CAP stuff) is run each card individually and see what sort of overclock I can manage. I'm planning on flashing the MSI OC BIOS to both of them also. I'd love to manage 1200/1700 in crossfire but you never know!

I'm going to fish through the thread looking for a certain post from Ken which describes the best way to uninstall/install the drivers and overclocking tools (I'll be using Afterburner beta 14).

Do not flash that bios if you want your cards to idle. The cards will not idle with that bios. It will stay and 925/1375 the whole time or what ever you have it overclocked to. I could not get it to idle. With water that would be ok I guess. I have blocks coming. But with the stock cooler it will be @ 60c @ what should be 36c for me idle. and when you play games it will be your normal load temp.
I went back to my old bios 4 now and all is good again I like to be able to idle on air until i get my water blocks. The one good thing about that bios though I could go 30mhz higher @ the same voltage for some reason. Dont know why. I waiting for something like RBE to come out so I can just mod my stock Bios.


And damn it is hot here in Georgia should be cold this time a year dont wont my pc heating up my room. Power bill is high anough with ac running 24/7 . tongue.gif

BTW I dont know if that idle prob was just me or what but the asus bios or any other I tried for that matter did not do that to me.

Also I ment to do a edit to my above post sorry about that.
