post #13561 of 33549
My two sapphire vapor-x 7970's arrive on Thursday. I am really nervous after reading all the crossfire issues. Should I use Radeon Pro or afterburner and do the frame limiting and dynamic vsync thing? Any suggestions or am I doomed?

LOL! I usually clean my rig every month since I have my PC on carpet :l It gets pretty dusty quick but as soon as I see build up I clean it biggrin.gif

Heatsinks, rads & coolers I clean off pretty regularly, I do get lazy with parts where dust buildup doesn't affect performance. I went to see the revision number on a motherboard before & did have to clean it to be able to read what was there though, hadn't noticed it was getting that dirty until really looking.

You're doomed and they're gonna go boom on you.

I'd just use afterburner and be set with it.

Oh, well in that aspect we're pretty similar. I clean my D14 and fans/case monthly. Mobo doesn't get touched too often. Old 990FXA-UD3 has a decent layer when I took it out and I never noticed, lol.

...good luck...and re. dust, just get a 200 mm side-fan for the GPUs / VRMs...19 DB only, but huge air movement with no chance for dust biggrin.gif

What games are you going to be playing? I had a TON of issues when I put my second 7950 in a couple weeks ago, but it turns out it was actually windows corruption (what are the chances of that???) and since then everything has been amazing. I've been so involved with my delidding and trying to find a stable overclock that I have only played about an hour of gaming in the last week. I have had like no problems though. I'm currently #40 on the duel cards chart of the valley benchmark and once Karlitos gets back and enters all of the pending benches I should be #32 so I am really happy with the performance of my two 7950's. Currently running at 1170/1600.

I've put dust filters on all my intake fans and I've not had dust build up on any fans or internal components in the 8 months since I built the PC. I clean the filters once every couple of weeks as the dust builds up on them. It does restrict airflow slightly and may contribute to an extra 1-2C difference between external and internal case ambient temperatures. I haven't tested filter on vs off temps and the likely small temperature gains are not worth it to me over the benefit of having a clean system. Having dust on the heatsinks, rads and fans will impede airflow and cooling anyway which could offset the gains to having no filters.

lol

@FtW: There was a guy who had a 5 stage project but doesn't seem to be finished...Also, I keep seeing -170c and similar head temps, but that's with no load.
