7950 CF-X works fine on my 3570K. Something else is at play here.

I will try to go for default settings in BIOS and close all possible programs running when playing and check how it is at that moment...

EDIT: Doesnt help. Even with MESH Quality on Low it still is at 100% A lot of the time. VRAM usage was around 2300 MB most of the time. While both cards only have 2 GB installed.... I thought you couldnt at those numbers up to get total VRAM?

Edit 2: Played with one card and it helps a lot. Normal CPU usage at around 60-70%. FPS locked at 59, GPU usage at 80% on overall high settings. Im just gonna stick with 1 card for the time beeing.

It is true that some games are not optimized for crossfire or SLI. Does your problem happen on all games, or just one? Often, one card probably does fine anyway.

That is true but BF3 is pretty optimized I think. Like 80 - 90% scaling. But 1 card will do for now, in the furure I will just be buying single cards. Maybe the 8970 when the prices drop. Thanks for the help! smile.gif

Your right. So somethings not right. Maybe it has to do with GPU BIOS. Since the system CPU usage problem and frame rate drop only happens with two cards and not one card, then it most likely relates to the crossfire handling and the GPU BIOS or drivers. I'd consider trying another BIOS flash of the GPUs to see if it makes a difference. Something different than what they are running now.

Try this. find out if your games are using your CPU as a physixs driver. sometimes they ignore the GPU's asmack your CPU around pretty hard.a nd leave your GPU's at around half usage.
