Is the 80.04.09.00.F8 (unlocked LN2) bios any better than the 80.04.28.00.3A (unlocked LN2)?
post #3422 of 7827
3A is better because every crash doesn't force a hard reset. All you have to do is reset Afterburner's overclock and close it, then re-open it and re-apply the overclock and you're good to go. When the driver crashes from an overclock, you don't have to do a reset, but Afterburner will revert to stock clocks even though it's still showing the overclock you previously applied. So, I'd get the 3A. After a crash, reset clocks, close, and re-open AB and you're good to go.

What temps are you getting under load? My max was 60C playing planetside 2. Is that normal? I have a HAF 932 Case with nice airflow and a COOLER MASTER Hyper 212.
post #3425 of 7827
Are you talking with stock clocks/voltage on the LN2 BIOS? And also with the default fan profile in Afterburner? That's normal, yeah. Maybe a bit high for stock, but it also depends on your room temperature. But it sounds average more or less though, yeah.

You keep in mind that 2GB is not enough for 3 screens? BF 3 uses up to 1,8GB for DM maps.. for just 1 screen 1920x1080.
If I buy my next card in 2013 , should be a minium of 3-4GB, and thats for 1 monior.

Crazy setup, tho.. hehe 3 cards w.t.fff

I think there's a big difference, especially in first person shooters. But 60 Hz is fine for me untill they put out some 16:10 120/144+ Hz monitors with good colors.
