Something very wrong with 680 SLI - Page 12

First off, this thing is amazing. Everything left to stock I'm at 2600k @ 4.4.
Temps all running below 60, maxing at 63 on Prime95 test.
Played BF3 briefly. My max on i7-940 on DX58SO is now my minimum fps.
I'm getting 90-140 fps on Caspian, everyhing on ultra except motionblur.
This is exactly what I wanted.
Thanks for all you guys' help and inputs.
PS: My GPU usage goes over 80% now. I agree with a lot of you that said it was also the driver issues, I can't wait until its out. 120hz should work next update and hopefully SLI will scale better.

Enjoy it!

In big maps like Caspian though, you may still see some FPS drops in some places of the map for no reason, probably due to poor game coding or a bad SLI profile from Nvidia.

Other than that, enjoy these beasts on that beast CPU! biggrin.gif

PS: No, you will most likely not hit 5GHz unless it's on water, even then many people have trouble.

Can't be true, it's A DRIVER PROBLEM. You'll NEVER see GPU usage over 70%, 'cause it's NOT A CPU BOTTLENECK, it's the DRIVERS!

It was a CPU bottleneck but he will still see the GPU usage drops in big maps. tongue.gif

Alot of people hit 5GHZ on Air with Sandy Bridge. Of course alot has to do with your air cooling, and he has the best, and the binning of your chip.

And many more people can't hit 5GHz on air. wink.gif

It all deppends on how good or bad the chip is, but most need water to hit 5GHz.

Well I was somewhat wrong.

I couldn't believe he had such a big bottleneck there, but I'm glad it's gone now.

However he will still have GPU usage drops in some maps due to poor game coding or bad SLI profile, maps like Caspian and Kharg Island.

But yeah, you were right. biggrin.gif

Note to self: always listen to people who post the most wink.gif
Glad i listened to you guys. Too much chores to do today so I won't be overclocking the CPU as of now.
Thanks for all your advices.
Oh and the 4.4, I guess it was the asus motherboard that did it automatically. I'm afraid if I start overclocking I'll buy some kinda water cooling upgrade and I promised myself not another dime for at least another year on the computer. biggrin.gif
