I've found that turning off vsync fixes most games but some refuse to work even then, at any settings. Others I have to open windowed to start with and then make them full-screen from the in game menu (Bioshock Infinite being the main example of that). Any time I can get away with running just 1 card and still get decent framerates I will. It seems that both Eyefinity and Crossfire are highly imperfect from a technical perspective and when you combine both with a game that isn't well optimized to running like that, it just leads to a very finicky system. In many new, more graphically demanding games I opt to play at 1080 on one monitor with Crossfire enabled to avoid the hassle. I love Eyefinity when it works but bottom line is that it just isn't worth the headache to me most of the time.

That windowed to start with issue.. I had that exact same problem with Battlefield 3.. I play on 1 monitor to test. Works fine. When I enable 3 monitors and start the game, it freaks out and I have to constantly alt+tab to set it to Windowed mode.. just to be able to access the settings.

My trifire setup was running hot!!! Ordered a bay fan mount from FrozenCPU and installed a Delta 113 CFM fan to cool these puppies, check it out! I would recommend this to anyone with the space as the high CFM fan really does a good job at reducing VRM temps!

Haha it's funny seeing a 'silent' psu and a delta fan in the same picture. Is this only for the VRMs or does it also cool the core?
post #2658 of 3024
Well temps were acceptable on the non reference dual x 7950 and the vapor-x 280x, but vrm 1 temps on my reference pcb dual x 7950 were hitting 100*+C playing FC3 at maxed settings! I'm now getting 90-92ish, with all 3 cards seeing about 8-10* temp drop with the delta. Diminishing returns for preformance with card fan speeds above 80% though. I'll be replacing my reference dual-x with a Toxic 280x today that should handle the trifire heat better. So the answer is both! And I didn't buy it for its silent properties but for the gold rating and previous satisfaction with cooler master psu's. I'll post some load temps running valley and fire strike soon biggrin.gif
post #2659 of 3024
I actually have 3 Delta fans in this setup lol! And will be adding a 4th soon. thumb.gif

Just got the email from sapphire that they shipped my rma replacement! biggrin.gif That was pretty quick!
