post #8151 of 38704
I've been having some serious issues trying to do eyefinity gaming with the 12.3 drivers... I seem to be able to play older stuff, like World of Warcraft at 5760x1080 with everything on ultra fine, but when I get near any water effects, I get massive lag- as low as 12 FPS. I can also get roughly the first 30 seconds of Skyrim at 5760x1080, but then it BSoDs out with a 0x0000116 (Graphics driver) Error code... I ditched my OCs thinking that it would help, but it really did nothing. I was running it off a portable HD (USB 3 drive) and thought that it was bottle necking it or something, and have found that it's not the case (After buying a WD Caviar Black and transferring 500 GB of games onto it).

Anyone else having these issues with the drivers? It seems I've had nothing but bad luck with my GPUs since I got them ):

here are my 3 lightnings. I had a bit of problems with the drivers but i found that NOT UNLOCKING/editing msi cfg helped me out in the end. Unfortunetly one of my lightnings was doa so i put in an rma and will be sending back for a replacement.

With the 2 in crossfire i top out at 1150/1500 as well with 1.150 v (asic 85.6%) and 1.225 (asic 67.8%). Anything more and i hardlock even with a voltage bump. I feel like im doing somthing wrong but who knows lol

The 12.2+ beta drivers and 12.3 whql drivers are bugged in eyefinity and dx11. Aftr enough installs/uninstalls they stop working. Have a try with rc11.

Yep I've been using RC11, after having nothing but problems with any of the newer drivers. I've tried every new release, including betas, with no luck. Since I only really play BF3, RC11 works just fine.

Good luck!

I just got a P22000 3dmark 11 score with my 3 7970s, and my 3930k @ 4.5ghz. I'm going to try to clock up my 3930k closer to 5ghz and go for higher.

Having fun with one of my four cards. Memory running at 1900 MHz very nicely, broke the UK record in Heaven DX11 smile.gif

With a close to 5ghz OC and high clocks on your gpus, you should clear a P score of 24K. wink.gif

What is your stock voltage? 0.993V?

Nope, my stock voltage = 1090mv

Ah, I see. Good info.
But performance wise both BIOS versions are the same I guess?
Its not that one of the two allows for a better overclock or something?

I think I got a bit of a lemon of a 7970 - my Sapphire reference card is only stable up to 1060/1500 (didn't bother sending the VRAM higher, didn't see much of a gain) otherwise it starts artifacting like crazy in BF3, Witcher 2 etc. Looks like MSI AB reports it's stock voltage as 1.112 and I have an ASIC of 77.1% - debating whether it is at all worth it trying to push the thing any higher.

Having said that, I have never needed to use anything other than CCC to get a modest overclock on previous cards - I'd be happy if the damn thing got to 1125/1575 without needing to be fiddled with.

The asus bios basically unlocks overdrive. You could achieve the same thing with racerx or using afterburners xcl option. I don't see the point of flashing bios' on 7970s, they don't do anything imo, except in rare situations.
