Great, yes. And ~118fps (my framerate cap) with all the settings maxed- DX11, 8x MSAA, HBAO, everything else on Very High or Ultra (some settings only go up to Very High). Runs great across all 6 cores, though more-so on the 3rd core, hence the very small framerate dips below 118fps, because the GPUs rarely hit a full load so it must be that damn core bottle-necking them every now and then. SLI works great as well. Excellent game all-around. Amazing how Arkham City can be so busted even after being out so long and Far Cry 3 runs great across all 6 cores and both GPUs with a perfect load and no skipping. Good job Ubisoft.

The benchmark I saw used a 3770k, with and without Hyper-Threading, and with HT actually had almost 3fps higher, so I think I'll give HT a try tomorrow and see how it goes.

Great post guys! Im learning a lot on this thread. I have a question. I have LTG on sli and i can't get 100% gpu usage, does that mean i still have more headroom for OC? im running at 1293mhz and 6204 mem. I5 3570k @4.4mhz. My max load temp on my first card is 65c with those settings.

What can i use to stress for stable OC? I'm on air with following settings:

Core 1345

Core Volt: +93
Power Limit: 300
Core Clock: +144
Memory Clock(Mhz): +150
Fan Speed(%): 65

My problem is i always have to open Black Ops 2 , go through menu ,then continue. . PROCESS in short. What else is good to See if OC is stable? I Cant seem to push my core that notch higher since my volts cant go any further frown.gif

For the Mem clock, what are you guys able to push with out volts on mem??

Yeah I've had it off for a while now, since I haven't done any bench runs lately and very few games, in my experience with the ones I've tried, actually benefit in a noticeable way with HT on. So, yeah I do fine with it off, so, never really wanted to turn it on for a game yet. Why, do you usually leave it on? Does it help more often than not?

Yep. Most of the recent releases have been for specific games, for Day 1 support and big improvements smile.gif
About to install the new 310.70. Looks like the SLI profile is working wonders for FC3.
