Have you played demanding games (I cant say the games you are playing are not, but I havent tried them) like BF3 to see if you are getting 100% GPU usage?
No, there are definitely no bottlenecks.
Over 20 games tried on max settings from 2010-2012, all run on over 60 or way over 60.
I forgot to mention that that is on the max settings. They cap on 60 not 30. In Planetside the cap jumps from 40 to 60 too.
I am not getting 100% CPU usage but doesn't vsync work for graphics performance not for CPU performance? Oh an I don't have Battlefield 3.
