7970 x2 currently causing belly acid....

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Reposting from the 7970 thread to see if anyone has answers/thought here...

7970 Cards + sig rig - 76% default volts show 1117... clocked to 1175 core @1237 | 1600 ram @1618 --- changed ulps, running rc11, and ran the monty for driver setup... (can bench @ 1200 -- 94 fps | 2375 scores| 31.3 min | 228 max)

-My mobo has only one 16x slot so I'm running as 8x 8x ...how much is that affecting my gaming experience?

-My gpu usages are dipping and rising on bf3... previously with on gpu this never occurred is this vdroop? is it fixable?

-AB 15 is only showing gpu1 memory usage (which at ultra on bf3 is like 2100+/- ... but there is no gpu 2 or are they assumed to be synce? - fixable or not?

-Additionally HWMOntior only shows one card (I typically use gpu-z) just saying...

-My one gpu is showing idol 300/150 mhz clocks, while the other is 500/100 - fixable or not or what should I know about it?

-on bf3 seeing 60-71degrees on load - idols mid/low 30's depending on weather (2x fesar radiator - cougar fans)

-on bf3 98-120 fps vscync on ultra settings - smooth

-I've read bf3 is a cpu heavy game... am I losing b/c of my chip? I get great fps now but I feel like I never win a gun fight or shoot a crowd and only get one kill... or am dead from one shot way off in the distance.... while my cpu is HT and 4.4 and not really maxing out it's "close on a few cores" I'm wondering if I'm just losing to SB technology? or old age (contemplation for me on the 3930 upgrade)

-Thick ram pad vs thin. my one EK came with white ram pads the other with thin gray ones - is one better than the other?

...

my thumb it itching to give out reps for good answer

1080p will do that for you. Even my 2500K @ 4.8Ghz would not keep fps over 60-70 in some 64 man server with HD 6990.

PCIE 2.0 x8 is enough. You may see a 5% drop at most going to x8, but it's absolutely nothing to worry about, certainly not worth thinking about changing motherboards for.

Vdroop has absolutely nothing to do with that. Vdroop is voltage drop under load. Assuming your overclock is stable and the GPU is not doing any weird throttling, this is simply the game engine not needing any more GPU power, and is now instead bottlenecked by something else. Even well optimized engines will often not nail a GPU to 100% for various reasons. Multi-GPU configs also vary more in utilization than single GPU configs.

GPU memory is exactly mirrored in multi GPU setups. Maybe shared memory pools will come later...

No comment.

This sounds like a software reporting bug. Either way, as long as you're not getting any flickering at idle clocks, 300/150 and 500/100 probably use about the same wattage if they are idling at the same voltage (ie very low). I wouldn't worry about it unless one of the cards is staying at 3d volts. I would guess that only a single card is being used when it goes into idle mode, so one of them may be in "hibernation"?

lol, you sound like a golfer who blames their bad shots on their "measly $500 clubs". FYI the average gamer is probably on a dual core core2, you're not losing because of technology. Ping does matter, as does monitor latency. Vsync also adds minute latency to the image, which is why I see screen tearing as a beautiful thing in fps wink.gif

RAM temperature is a total non-issue with modern low voltage memory. Choose the one you think will have the best adhesion and not slip off.

thanks ^^

haha on the golf analogy... I'm usually in top 10 on 64 person servers ... just wondering ... as my chip is older chip... not q6600 old but you know it's hard to gauge a 10% improvement going to a 2500k or upwards ... was hoping someone with a i920 moved to 3930 and said there was a huge change thumb.gif

On 64 MP, no chip will help with everything Ultra. Turn off MSAA and use FXAA injection is much better.

 

To all your other questions; everything as it should, nothing strange.
