I'll have to restart and go into BIOS to see what OC Profile I had to set it to. It's not there now but that's how my old brain works. It takes a nudge to get at the info sometimes. So lemme know if you need me to. I just remember leaving voltage at stock though.

Ok, I went in to the BIOS and put it at 1.55 is that alright? 1.5 is stock or should I put it down to stock. It defaulted it to 1.67 which is a little ridiculous I think. But at 1.55 it woke up from sleep this morning with so thats good atleast, it didnt yesterday morning so Im making progress. But just to be on the safe side I would like to know how you have yours set up thanks for your help ceaddar

Got the last 11.8 drivers. I'm on DVI.

So here http://www.guru3d.com/article/asus-r...u-ii-review/18 they got an 56 average fps with one single card, same resolution.

Same game, same settings, with my crossfire : 20-30fps...

What's wrong? Any idea ?

Btw, crossfire is enabling, I'm sure, I confirm, and I'm using only one monitor. The other one is switch off and unplugged

First idea is unstable something. start with stock everything to get a base reading. O and ATI drivers =

I had to go into the BIOS last night because I thought I'd disabled stupid Core Unlocker feature when I was in the BIOS after swapping CPU. So I reminded myself what I had done when I first got my RAM.

Had to use GoButton to get system to identify the RAM.

Set OC profile to D.O.C.P. which defaults it to 1333.

However you can go into another section and disable CPU IMC and that will allow you to run 1600.

I thought I was running stock voltage on my RAM but I was mistaken. It's running 1.654 on Auto. Runs fine for me but RAM isn't cookie cutter manufacture. Could be your Ram likes a lower voltage than mine. Of course since I disabled the IMC in BIOS, I might be able to lower my voltage now too. Not really sure about that.

I'm considering also of changing from 1T to 2T. My thinking is maybe I can get a couple of the timings down 1 notch. Not really sure but I thought I would give it a try.

Now for a really worrisome issue. The other day I was on watching the game(NFL) and my +3.3v bottomed out to .03v Everything seemed to be running just fine but not knowing what +3.3v is specifically for and understanding that voltages fluctuate I thought that it was still rather odd that it went THAT low. My PCP II alarm went off an I was

Anyone know what specifically +3.3v powers? And is it okay to fluctuate to that level for the short term; which was no more than a minute or so.

3.3V is floppy and SATA and I highly doubt that it actually went that low as it is usually connect to the 5v line. More then likely it was a glitch in the software.

Okay kewl thanks.

That thing had me a bit startled, I thought it had something to do with my Graphics. My Aero dropped out due to having "incompatibility" issues with an app. But I hadn't even started an app that does that and the only one I have that does is my webbie.

Nice! I'm waiting on the TRI though!!

Excellent. Not that I completely disagree, but I didn't see the need to spend money on V when VI will be out for the newer iterations of Bulldozer when AMD puts the one that won't work on CIVF out. Kind of a waste but I am still curious to know how BD fares on V. Hope you stick around so when I get mine we can compare notes.

I got the third 6970 back today. I checked quickly if it was truly repaired, but *** ! Seems that Asus France believes that people are kind of idiot...

So I will send it back this weekend, with maybe the second card because I still got problem with the crossfire. I need more time to investigate, but right now I can't !!! It is maybe the drivers, but it is too long to check that

It seems to me that only the last purchased card is fine, unbelievable... Works great alone in the case, no FPS drop or whatever.
