That M5A97 board runs in x16/x4 mode. Even tho it's just a HD6850 it should still neck it am I right?

I did the bother of repasting and completely stripping and cleaning my HD6950's cooler to prepare it for CF since I already put this card in the bottom slot meaning it's very close to the bottom.
Wasn't comfortable with the 68c load I got cause it needed 76% fanspeed for it...

Now that I cleaned and repasted it with AS5 idle temps have dropped a whopping 8c already over stock TIM...
I think i'm gunna clean and repaste the second card as soon as it comes in lol. Don't even wanna run it with stock TIM if this pretty big drop holds up under load.

Yes, i can run this pretty well in this board no issue at all, what u have to take into account is games that take to much Vram like BF3 u will have to drop some setting etc

Well, my setup is running as well! Told you guys it was a TIGHT SQUEEZE but the temps are VERY good after I repasted both cards.
Did a quick run of 3dm11 which crashed at the combined test cause of the damn Windows Color Scheme thing whining again but it only topped out at 58c for the top card and 62c for the bottom card with a slight OC at 900-1350-1.18v.

Lol, you're lucky you've got a top mounted PSU, that would have been a pain in the bum!

Too bad my second card proves to be a much worse VRAM overclocker. Ran card 1 at 1400mhz usually but the second card won't stabilize unless I run VRAM at 1325Mhz. This SS of 1350Mhz gave a Battlefield 3 has stopped working error and after a reboot it gave a DirectX OUT_OF_MEMORY error. When I set it to 1325Mhz it didn't crash for the rest of the evening so I guess it just doesn't clock VRAM as well as the other card and now I can't fully reach HD6970 clocks anymore frown.gif.

The core of the second card is actually better then the first one tho. First one did 905Mhz on 1.18v, the second one 930Mhz. But then, who needs that extra few Mhz anyways. BF3 Ultra 1080p with 2xAA and the FXAA injector enabled still does 75-120FPS and in maps like Gulf about 65-90FPS. Temps did run a little higher then at first but stabilized at 70c for the bottom card and 58c for the top one. Quite a large difference but nothing to worry about since fanspeed was just 42% on average.

I'll do a 3dm11 run today to test the score difference and scaling. With a single card I pulled 5530 on the P preset. Wondering if I can break 10k with some suicide clocks on the CPU tongue.gif

This.

4x isn't too bad, on the best of cards you lose about 8-10%. So indeed you wouldn't be losing much? My guess is about 5%.
That being said you'd be running crossfire so the loss wouldn't be visible at all. thumb.gif

HOLY **** DUDE! NICE BUILD!

only problem is you have more power cables going to your graphics cards than your 24 pin tongue.gif
