Mine is always 95-99% on dual 7970s, using 12.3 whql w/ latest CAP

Idle temps mean nothing, show us some load temps and make sure you use HWiNFO64 to check VRM temps, they get hot on the DCII.

Is there any other way to make it work?
Ive heard it its because off the new 12.3 Drivers...

This is how I did my fresh install the other day. Install Windows, 12.3 drivers including latest CAP, wait for all Windows updates etc. Then, download the two files directly (not the patch) and place them in system32 and SYSWOW64 respectively. Reboot. THEN install Afterburner, don't start it. Go straight in and enable UOM. Voila! All works fine. I haven't tested games or benches yet because I've been busy, but I can confirm that UOM in afterburner works for me using that procedure.

BF3 is a cpu hog. Check your CPU usage during gameplay. If it's at or near maxed out, chances are your GPUs aren't being fed well enough. Either OC or look to upgrade. Since you don't have a sig rig, it's hard to tell.

With my 3 7970s, I was only getting 70-80% GPU usage in BF3 on my 2500k @ 4.7ghz. I then changed platforms entirely and went with the X79/3930k @ 4.6ghz and all 3 cards are @ max gpu usage.

Also, another thing to do is to reboot before playing BF3. I've noticed sometimes when my GPU usage isn't right, it's better if I reboot and clear out any processes that may take up proc cycles. It helps me sometimes... especially with the 2500k, when I actually needed all the power I could get.

With 1 GPU, a 2500k or even an older i5 or i7 would be just fine for BF3, including even the AMD Phenom Quad/Hex cores, if they're clocked high enough...

When you move beyond 2 GPUs, X79 is pretty much necessary with BF3. A 2600k would be cutting it close.

This is my CPU usage on my 3930k when it was only @ 4.4ghz with my 3 7970s @ 1125/1575

My fav. drivers so far are the official Catalyst 12.4 beta drivers, released March 15th, I believe. Haven't been able to fully test them out though bcause my power supply went bunk about a week or so ago... But they seem to be the smoothest working drivers so far for me. And also the best visuals too. smile.gif

You should preface that by saying if you're using a single card because they are broken in crossfire + eyefinity.

Yes I am using a single card for these drivers tsm106 lol. And I was replying to 7ranclucen7's post of asking "What's the best working atm for a single card?" Anyway, I hope that does answer your post accurately enough. smile.gif

Question, something changed a few weeks ago that has prevented me from overclocking the way I was as shown in the image of gpu-z on 2/3/2012. She was rock stable, with none of this powerplay or ulps enabled garbaged, and for the life of me I do not know what changed other than the driver updates. I cannot even OC outside of the CCC parameters without having to jump through hoops.

Followed the regedit steps of "1' to "0" for the "enableupls" fix, nothing. Trixx is worthless now and no longer can be used. Trixx was fine up until Cat 12.3 WHQL I am aware AMD set the new driver to prevent unarthorized overclocking, but wouldn't a driver sweep and installation of previous drivers eliminate this limitation?.

After rolling back to the previous drivers, Trixx is still unusable due to the ULPS warning. I have a 8000 BTU window A/C blowing inside my open case, the hottest the GPU ever hit was 52 degrees celcius according to my GPU-Z which I post an image of above. Does anyone have a therory as *** happened to my 87% asic Sapphire HD 7970???madsmiley.png

I have always owned ATI/AMD vga's , and until now have ever though about owning a green card, but the current state of affairs makes me feel like I have been ripped off somehow. Anywho, thanks for listening to my "wine", I am gonna go have some cheese with it now. CYA...

For some background I am 50 years old and my first ATI vga was the ATI Radeon X850 XT Platinum Edition.

This thread moves to fast so whatever history is lost in the sheer number of replies. Anyways, it is good to preface your comment because others will read your reply not knowing it was meant for single card setup. Anyone who tries the new drivers unaware with a cfx config is in for a treat lol.

It sounds like your drivers are set to auto update. Check to see which driver version you are on now. As for the overclocking problems, the newest drivers removed files necessary for clock control. You can add them back in here.
