HELL no. Your cpu will never be at 100% in anygame really other that BF3 with a quad no HT, or FSX. If you have Vsync on, and you have enough balls on your gpus, they won't be at 99% each. If you turn off Vsync, they should both be at 99% all times.

You have a 2600k @ 4.5ghz, you have no bottle neck on the cpu. You may want to go into your bios and try turning off HT and it may be better for that game. Most games run a few fps faster with it off then on. BF3 and BBC2 both benefit from having it on.

ULPS is only to disable your 2nd card or 3,4, to not shut down. If you only have 1 card then ULPS is Chinese to you.

Doesnt work like that for CPUs. If a CPU has 8 threads and a game only utilizes 4, CPU usage won't move over 50% unless you have stuff running in the background. CPU usage that high says to me your CPU is chugging for some reason or another

I really hope the damn idle bug is fixed by the time 12.4 is released. mad.gif
It's still very much present with the 12.4 beta.

I can only imagine the crap CF users has to deal with this gen.

I find it weird they didn't pick up on it. Replicating it is as easy as turning your computer on and opening a monitoring program lol

No you don't, it was a horrible horrible night.

That aside, when I turned on my computer today (still running 1200/1600 at 1250/1700mv) it logged into Windows, then locked up, had a series of screen flashes, then opened AB and worked fine.

Is this overclock+drivers or just the overclock? Card was happily stable when I played Skyrim yesterday at those clocks. I know it's not really a hard test, as my GPU only hits 40% at those clocks locked at 60fps, but it seems weird that it'd be fine until I rebooted. I was able to boot into those clocks yesterday, however it was a restart for windows updates. This morning was cold.

The disabling flash hardware acceleration and disabling monitor power off seems to work. I enabled the screen saver and just physically turn off the monitor when I go to bed at night. So far problem seems solved. But I'm still looking at fresh install this weekend. Seriously looking at getting a 2nd card soon. I know the MSI Lightnings are great, so are the new Sapphire Dual-X cards, but I'm a bit worried about mix and match card issues. Thinking of getting a another Gigabyte WF3 card just to prevent the issues, temps are definitely on the low side (I've gotten max 63C under heavy gaming load so far) but I'm still more than just a little concerned with all the Xfire issues going around. I know Xfire for 1080p single monitor sounds like overkill but I love have everything silky smooth 60fps with everything maxed out if possible.
