My temps were pretty normal, 34 degrees idle, and at max load it hit 59 degrees. Celsius of course. I was comparing my results to this video http://youtu.be/UkOZhwutP-o
which is the exact same card, and overclock I have. In this video, on Crysis he got 44fps stock, and 48fps OC. Mine OC I was only getting around 35. In Metro 2033 he was getting 72fps, I get 30fp when nothing is going on, but when my gun is out it drops to 20. Skyrim he got 77fps, I get 55fps. In another review the reviewer managed to get a 3DMark11 score of 6993 stock settings, and I only get 4500. Something I hadn't thought about is CPU bottleneck, which might be my problem. I've updated everything in my system except my CPU as I bought everything pretty much on sale, and CPUs didn't go down much. However I do plan on upgrading in the next month. My current CPU is an Athlon II X4 640 (I know, terrible).
Now as an update, I decided to install the 12.11 beta 8 drivers, and that seems to have solved the problem. I read in another forum that after 12.6 something happened with 7870 cards that made them only run at 60~%, but this beta driver seems to finally fix that. I ran my tests again, and even tho my games are still getting really low fps, my 3DMark score matched the one in the review I saw.
So I guess my next question is, would my games be bottlenecked that badly by my CPU? Or do I still have a problem? I'll update my specs right away.
