[Official] AMD Radeon HD 7950/7970/7990 Owners Thread - Page 613

post #6121 of 38701
Everything is working fine for me with latest drivers and CAP, with 4X 7970 Quad-Fire in my main system with 3X 30" LCDs Eyefinity, and 2X 7970 Crossfire in my 2nd rig for LAN games at home.
All my cards are watercooled and heavealy OCed.

So if those 2 really complicated systems are working fine with over 100 games in my Steam profile, then there is only 2 possibilities.

1) I am extremely lucky, or 2) I know what I'm doing, and those with problems are suffering from PEBKAC.

I'm 99% sure number 2 is the good answer. So learn 2config, and stop complaining.

Can you elaborate on "Working Fine" please?
If we are talking benchmarking, then so are mine as you can see...

I dont have any issues with drivers and I have heard of some real bad driver issues since I have joined this thread. Why is there such a drastic difference even when ppl are using the same driver set?

I did several fresh installs and tried multiple driver versions, and only had success with one - that I'd already tried. I had to install it as soon as I went into Windows, doing it after Windows update didn't work. Not PEBKAC, the drivers are legitimately buggered. Some cases are PEBKAC of course but for most of us it's the drivers.

I'm on my second set of 7970s (1st set returned due to registration issues not because of defective) and they're running on rc11 perfectly. Bf3 gets Max usage on all three cards. Benches are even higher since the cards are all similar asic, helps with volting.

BF3 on mine has no interest in running at all unless just crossfired. Alan Wake crashes, Syndicate is hit and bloody miss, crysis 2 runs 3 cards fine, best one of the lot actually. Skyrim, windowed only... Batman to be fair... seems ok. LOL
