and what are chances this card will clock the same as the ftw sig2

http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=M021-00-000020
also anyone got one of these beside making them look better waht is the befits to it?

Yes you can still sli but always recommended to pair cards with the same specs and manufacturer, otherwise you'll be bottle necked by the weaker card (eg, reference 660ti vs one factory OC'd)

The backplate offers function and style, 1) function: gives the card more rigidity 2) e-peen. If you plan on transporting your rig a lot the benefit will help keep that card from flexing but other than that not much else I'm aware of.

Nah its a completely fresh install with the correct drivers, i tried it on windows 7 and 8 just to see if that made a difference but it didnt, also tried older drivers and nothing changed frown.gif yeah try it in SLI looking forward to see what you make of it smile.gif thanks

Also check this out, i played GTA and that doesnt seem right either, do you get this aswel?

Check out this thread:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1265110/the-gtx-670-overclocking-master-guide

tons of info about the Kepler architecture and how to get the most out of your card. Maybe Tong can include the link in the OP biggrin.gif

So the 70c temp youre referring to is the point where the card begins to down-clock (covered in detail under "Kepler Boost" section)

Have fun oc'ing and post back with any other questions.

Welcome to the tread!

thank you for this it will explane everything.... and yup before my 7870 i had evga and i love there cards never a problem with them..

do you guys know what safe voltage might be on these?

and do you think a fx 6100@4.5 will bottleneck a sli setup or should cpu be first thing then a second card?(longer i wait on second card the cheaper guys i am buying right from evga with the bucks i got saved up)

BOTTLENECK is an understatement...
you need better CPU PERIOD.
if staying AMD then get at least the 8320, but in the end, go Intel..

Man, that's a bit of rubbish right there.


It all depends on resolution and the game. 24" monitor would imply 1920x1080? Can go ahead and SLI and see real improvements in pretty much every game, there are very few that are CPU bound at that resolution.

Yes, other CPUs are better but SLI will bring more performance for gaming than a simple CPU upgrade.

Noticed something odd. My first card throttles at 81c, but the second throttles at 71c. They have exactly the same bios. Is this some driver issue?

Doubt it's a driver issue.

But off that bat, you're going to fry your first card pretty soon if you keep running it @ 81c. You're past the second throttling point (click here).

Second card doesn't run at the same clocks as the first so it's probably hitting the first throttle point correctly. You're also losing performance once you hit 70c, so you gotta get those temps under control.

thank you i was thinking this as the card will be ordered friday and cpu in 1 month after so...

also are these cards voltage locked i up my voltage in ab to max and it dont change at all

I don't think so and as a matter of fact I know so.
on the nVidia Surround thread right now is someone bottlenecking like crazy and even mentions it with benches..
wasn't that bad with the single GPU but now with SLi they're upgrading CPU's and maybe platform.
same 6100 but clocked @ 4.8GHz and bottlenecking..
the fact that you do not realize the 6100 is the weakest FX chip is rubbish..

cheers.

All settings set on ultra w/both high res and DX11 packs enabled. Getting the same thing but not as noticeable as yours. in my case more noticeable in single, barely noticeable in SLI.

Conclusion, it's both the game (crysis 2 being the game that it is) and our GPUs.
