Figured out my issue on furmark was powertune was messing me over, I got rid of afterburner and used sapphire trixx- pumped a little more voltage in and fixed the problem!~

Alex I would run it for u man right now but I don't have it- I remember trying to run it few months ago but was having some issues and iam pretty sure its like 20 dollars for 3d mark 11...... I swear id run it for u just don't have it biggrin.gif
Iam wondering having some issues with cf do u use 1 cf connector on your cards or 2>? Ive seen some people using 2 of them is there any gain in doing so>? I would imagine u need 2 cf connectors when running 3 cards not 2 so whats the point of doing that do u get better performance>?

No worries man. It's free anyways, only 200mb I think, could be more. Doesn't matter.

I only use one connector. Only one is needed. You get one connector per card so they must think you have to use both lol but you don't and no, performance does not increase.

Alex- if its free I will try to download it today and ill give it a run so I can get you that score ( u have my word) ..... As far as who will get a better score I have no clue you said your at 4ghz, iam at 4.2-4.4 ghz on my fx 6100 so let me try and get that done for you today ( it schoulkd be interesting).............. You have the locked multi on your cpu right>? Sorry I know the "k" means unlocked with intel....
Was wondering if you get the same problem as me when I disable cf in amd catalyst because some games just don't play well on crossfire- when I go to re-enable it in catalust control I get BSOD everytime! It never fails! I wonder if iam doing something wrong here?

Thanks for that. I just want to see how it compares with latest AMD chips that's all smile.gif

As for my CPU, the multi is locked. It was only unlocked in Extreme versions for the first gen i7s. I overclock by increasing the bclk settings. smile.gif

As far as crossfire goes, I don't have any issues when enabling/disabling in CCC. Check your cabling and connections. Maybe something loose.

How long are you planning on keeping your 6970s? I am thinking of upgrading my entire system either when Haswell comes out or when AMD releases the new Volcanic Island cards which are expected by November.

Cpu score was-13,959 Graphics score was-28,282
As far as how long U asked I plan on keeping them iam probably gonna get a 6990 now to throw in with the crossfired 6970s,Iam kinda in a race against myself and iam losing if that makes any sence to you haha,I wanna see how far I can push things so ill either pick-up a 6990 or 2 more 6970s whatever I can find cheeper!......Afterwards I plan to jump on the 7970s so I will mre then likely give this set/up to my kids and wife to game on! They'll get a kick out of it after I set/up the eyefinity for them!~ biggrin.gif

trifire / quadfire once you go above 2 cards or plain crossfire between 2 GPU's the performance increase drops alot literally in half for each added GPU past that the same goes for SLI also the first gen bulldozer FX 6100 is a bottleneck but I can assure you piledriver / Vishera does a pretty good increase and also does well with crossfire / SLI when tweaked and overclocked properly this goes beyond CPU core clock add 1866mhz ram with tight timings running in 1T command rate and overclock the NB to around 2400mhz you get a very nice increase in performance.

I get around 90%-%95+ scaling on 3x HD 79070's at 4.8ghz x8 and for hell runs I run 5.0ghz x8 my big rig the one in my sig is a dedicated gamer and does nothing else now my secondary is exact setup with nothing but different size SSD's in raid0 and different GPU got another HD 6970 on the way to crossfire for the secondary rig http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2779392 this is the second HD 6970 i have on the way http://www.powercolor.com/us/products_features.asp?id=314.


this is a 3dmark06 run http://www.3dmark.com/3dm06/17368875 on the above rig with ATI HD 6970 overclocked to 975mhz core and 1450mhz ram I cant seem to find mine I did with core at 1000mhz core and 1500mhz ram. I will rerun it just to prove it here is the 1ghz core and 1500mhz ram run http://www.3dmark.com/3dm06/17369067 be aware I had alot of stuff running in the background in the second one I did just for proof not for true scoring also the ram it has on the 3mark06 is false I have full 1866mhz ram at 1866mhz speed.

I also want to point out I downclocked the CPU from 4.8ghz / 5.0ghz x8 to 4.6ghz x8 because it is summer here and hottest days of this summer and well computer room is hot enough.

Ok here is 2x hd 6970's ran in crossfire I want to point out i had steam and all my regualr stuff running in background including antiviruses and such so score could be higher http://www.3dmark.com/3dm06/17374603 3dmark 06 / http://www.3dmark.com/3dmv/4799325 3dmark vantage / http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/7123397 3dmark11 / and the newwest 3dmark http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/1183824? be aware I ran the oem basic settings / tests no additional adjustments I also want to point out my OCZ vectors in raid0 fried lastnight this is the 3rd set I have fried luckily they got 5year warranty this set lasted 1 1/2 months.
