Low GPU usage in Battlefield3 with Tri-fire 7970s and a 2500k @ 4.7ghz - Page 7

^^ Make sure you're using the most recent beta.

And my usage has dropped off with 12.1, but gameplay is unchanged.

I'm going to give the 12.2 WHQL's a shot and see if I can get them to work.
For some reason MSI afterburner does NOT want to work with any drivers besides the RC11s. Are any of you having the same problem? I would like to be able to OC above the 1125mhz limit in the CCC unless I want to stick with RC11.
THanks!

RC11 is the only one that works for me. 8.95.5 is stable, works fines, EXCEPT it crashes in all games in eyefinity. 8.960 works great in eyefinity, no crashes, EXCEPT it has a problem keep the DP and DVI ports in synch so I'm left with either the DP or DVI panels flickering. Back to RC 11 we go.

Most of the other drivers were released missing clock control dll's for whatever reason. Maybe AMD wanted no AB run with their drivers, I dunno. You just have to add the files back in. Search the owners thread, it should be obvious what to do.

Anyways, as to the overdrive limit in catalyst, you can use racerx. That hasn't changed, AMD has always left that hole to use Racerx untouched. Also, to be thorough there's another method to use that hole, AB with the xcl option.

I have tried using racerx. It works fine with 1 card, but when using it with multiple cards, I would have serious issues.

All I ever used racerx for was to increase the clockspeed limit of which disables the +20% power feature

What kind of issues? I use racerx with no problem with my 3 6970's. It's pretty strait forward, it even makes a reg file and just merge that with your existing reg.
