Okay, so there has to be something I am doing wrong. So my frames in Battlefield 4 are not what they should be. As you may have seen my older posts, I just upgrade from my 560 Ti. I could play Battlefield 4 on Low settings at around 70 ~ 80 FPS. So now I put in my R9 290 and have the 14.3 drivers installed (I have tried 14.4). On all low settings with dx11, I get 70 ~ 80 FPS, on ultra I get 50 ~ 64 FPS. On Mantle, I get slightly less FPS. This is kind of how my previous 7950 handled. My 560 Ti outperformed an overclocked 7950 in most games. These were all on full 64v64 player servers. What the hell is going on? I refuse to believe my CPU is holding me back. It is a i5 2500k @ 4ghz. I know it is not the best OC but I am just afraid to push it further on this Motherboard because of what happened last time. Also, this card seems to run pretty damn hot. When I was running the Heaven Bench on Extreme everything 1600 x 900 the temps were 78c on the core, 77c vm1 and 68c vm2. The fan was at 85%. The card has not yet been overclocked and it at it's default 977/1250. This is the MSI r9 290 GAMING edition.
