lol which chip you talking about?

EDIT: sometimes it shoots to 60% in games like Crysis 3 or tomb raider, anything ultra intensive, but usually only a couple of the 4 used cores

I have crossfired 7950's as well and I couldn't be happier with my setup. You won't regret your purchase, you will like your performance even more if you give that 8350 a little boost with an OC. I have my 8350 clocked up nicely and leave my 7950's stock during gaming, they are so overkill with a single 1080p monitor I dont see the need for the additional heat at the moment smile.gif during a little benching thats a different story, you will see pretty good gains if you put a nice OC on your cards. I say go for it man and be happy that you did.
