Oh, I meant load! 99% load. My power usage is never above 65%.

I was expecting between 1200-1300 after reading a review on a swedish site, sweclockers, that marked the produkt as "great for overclocking". But they must simple have had a great card.
Just to try and ease my mind, I have following questions regarding the PSU bit:
I used my 6+2 connector from my PSU to the 8 pin in the graphics card, which is correct right? It feels secure and everything as well.
If there was any other issue regarding my PSU not giving enough juice, would it still show that my card is using 1.175 volt in graphs? Which is the maximum voltage for these cards.
AND one last thing, even if i barely can't make a run in Heaven but feel like BF3 and 3dmark 11 is working properly is it possible to use those higher settings even though heaven doesn't fully pass?

Yes, you connected right.

Yes, you would still see 1.175V even if your PSU wasn't providing enough juice (assuming you 'see' anything at all). When PSU's are inadequate 95% of the time the system will simply shut off like flipping a switch. The other 5% of the time the symptom would be an inability to achieve your max OC w/o instability. There's basically no chance that's what happening with your system though ... 650W of Corsair powah is practically overkill for your system. Nothing to worry about there.

Yes, you can run whatever clocks you want as long as they don't crash/artifact in the particular app you're running, it's not going to hurt anything.

Seeing 91% load instead of 99% load is generally indicative of EITHER some kind of bottleneck in the particular testing scenario you're using (i.e. the game/bench you run, and the settings you run it at), OR it's due to the imposition of a framerate cap or using v-sync (which is a de-facto framerate cap), which can lower GPU usage for fairly obvious reasons ...

Can you be more specific as to what you're doing exactly wherein you're getting only 91% usage?

BTW, are you both kman and biffenl? Certainly appears that way ...

About the PSU that i forgot to mention, everytime i take out the power cord, and put it in again to boot my system the computer starts, then a second it shuts down then after about 3 seconds it starts again and continues in to windows. Don't know why i forgot to mention that... Is that behavior weird?

And I am actually getting 99% gpu usage/load so that seems fine. I was just explaining to Biffenl that i meant GPU usage, where i think he thought that I meant power usage, in my earlier text so that may have confused you.

I would also like to ask you if you as well get a little graphical glitches, like split second pop ups in Heaven? I had an ATI card before but i assume i have uninstalled it correctly. Are there any known glitches or issues regarding old drivers not being properly uninstalled?

That behavior seems a tiny bit odd but it's not necessarily an 'issue' at all. In fact it's actually something the board is 'doing', not the PSU. I wouldn't worry about it.

Okay, I get you on the confusion. Just a coincidence you're both from Sweden then wink.gif

Yes, I get the little artifacts/flashes of color in Heaven, but only when my OC is too high.

Drivers for previous gpu's (even if they're not the same brand) are not a problem in Windows 7. In fact, you didn't even have to uninstall your AMD drivers if you didn't want to. The only issue it would've caused if you hadn't is that a couple of AMD services would've been idly running that didn't need to be, occupying approximately .00001% of your CPU resources.

The OSD stats on your Heaven bench look normal/right to me.

Thanks again for the great responses, and as for the flashes now, as I stated in an earlier post they do occur even at factory clocks(Core and Memory). I have also tried just to see a diffrence with a lower clock than the factory one, but the flashes still occur. Worth mentioning is that it's only in heaven they show up, I haven't noticed anything in both BF3 and 3dmark 11.

Combined score went down using three cards. Time for an X79 Platform...

So here it is:
GPU: +106
GPU voltage: +100 mV
Memory: +875 (so thats 7750Mhz lol o.O)
Fan profile: 100% just for benchmarking

375

Cheers,
Phsy.

Nice, mine does that too. Actually, +875 is just about when the performance starts to drop but it will run all the way up to +1000. smile.gif
