What fans do you have in the front? Are they standard 120 x 120 x 25mm fan's. Do what Buehlar suggests but if they 38mm thick or seriously high performance then its possible that they pulling the filter into the blades. Make sure the filter is secure. And as Buehlar says, push the metal out a bit, it might have been pushed in a bit somehow.

On the plus side SLi IS more stable than Crossfire, but that's just drivers really. The 680's also use less power so thats a bonus. The 680's are only OpenGL 3.2 Compliant versus 4.2 for the 7970's, but then I don't think anything really uses OpenGL anymore. Not sure.

If you can sell the 7970's then go for it and get the 680's. Whatever you do the just research and make sure you getting the best card. Hey if you get a decent price for the 2 cards, go for a 690. Although with gaming at 1920 x 1080 you'd be fine with one 7970 or 680. With the trend in games to be developed cross platform these days you don't need an uber powerful PC as much as you did in the Crysis days. Sure the next generation of consoles is coming out soon put unless they packing SERIOUS graphics power, which I doubt, you should be fine for awhile.

Thank you for the advice. The 7970s are less than 2 weeks old and the 680s I just got last night, so I think I can get a pretty good price out of both of them. It is just the Crossfire issue that I am annoyed with and the 2 GB VRAM for the 680s. In fact, I would probably just go with the 680s if they had the 3GBs that the 7970s do. Perhaps, though, I will sell off both sets and get a 690. I don't know...it is a tough decision. Plus, I want the ones that go well with my case lol.

Well if you already have both sets then try em out. You've been using the 7970's for 2 weeks now try the 680's. See if there are less issues/better performance and see how it goes. Unless you running at insanely high resolutions, like multiple monitor setups, then 2Gb is more than enough. Also what games do you play? Some games play better on nVidia some better on AMD. For example SLi 2Gb 680's get 99.5 fps on Battlefield 3 on extreme settings at 2560 x 1440 res, yet the same cards at the same settings and res only get 50.7 fps on Metro 2033.

EDIT: I usually use this chart when picking cards for a build. Might not be the most accurate but it has a good selection of cards and games with three different graphic settings.

Wow, that's just ignorant. You surely can't be serious?

Thanks, again! I play games like Total War, Skyrim, Battlefield 3, ARMA series, Far Cry (2&3 right now), Just Cause 2, Crysis 3, Chivalry Medieval Warfare, Mount and Blade, Assassin's Creed series and Batman...just to name a few tongue.gif. I would like to, I just know that once I open them, the price will go down when I try to resell them. I know, I know...why the hell did I buy them in the first place lol. Well, I got a really good deal on them and I thought I would grab them before someone else did to try them out. Anyhow, since you say that 2 GBs will be good for a while playing at the resolution that I play at, the real "gamble" maybe that AMD comes out with drivers that fix the Crossfire problems.

Thanks for the link and the help!

But with the application that the guy is going to be using them with, the 680's are a better pick because they have fewer software related issues.

It isn't just the memory interface.

There is something I need to say, I found and joined this club some time ago. One of the things I liked about it is everyone was friendly and there were no " no it alls" in here, we talked about the C70 and alot of other things and never had trouble. It has changed. It is one thing to chime in with an opinion about things but to me there is nothing worse than reading arguements about this stuff. Everyone has there opinions but biting comments are not nessecary, saying someone is ignorent is uncalled for. At that point it doesn't matter if you are right or not, it's just wrong. It's not that hard to give an opinion without putting others down in the process. I know most or all of you in here might not miss the carbon-fiber-crazy old man's comments and pics but if I have to read much more I will step off for a while. In my signature there is a quote from Dennis Miller that says "it seems to me we have gotten so smart that we have ditched common sense". Please !!!!
