Am I pushing My SLI OC to Much? - Page 2

post #11 of 57
Do what I do

1. Go to C:\\Users\\Anthony\\Documents\\BFBC2
2. Open up the settings.cfg file
3. Scroll down to the command line DxVersion=
4. It is set to auto by default
5. Delete auto and put a 9 so it looks like this DxVersion=9

That will force the game to run in DirectX 9 mode, there's no difference what so ever in terms of image quality between the 2, Only difference is that DirectX 9 runs a lot faster

Well you're running it at 1920x1080? so thats going to affect the fps, plus the game is quite new! - the drivers aren't the best and nvidia are messing about with there latest driver due to overheating issues, get the beta drivers the 196.34 i think, very good sli support compared to the previous, I'm running the beta and dont have AMAZING fps, its not my hardware but the software....

For some extra stability testing us the Furmark Multi gpu stress test, it gives you real time temps.

Post your results.

good luck
How do I enable FMark to run in Multi GPU mode?

there should be 2 programs, one for single gpu and one for multi gpu, make sure you have your base profile in the NV control panel to defaults? and there is no crazy optimisations on d3doverrider or nhancer...

They are great temps btw, i hit 70c on the multi gpu stress stest @ 1920x1200 / 4xmsaa / Average fps 73. score something like 5k... its validated somewhere?

I am running the Multi GPU program, SLI is enabled, and still it will only test 1 GPU. My frame rates are horrible, my computer is not as good as I thought.
