Overclocking will definitely give you a little bump in performance. But ya that also means more heat and consequently noise.

Sounds like an excuse to upgrade cooling thumb.gif

That's a good question. In GW2, for example, I use vsync and usually I get 60FPs, but when a lot of action is going on the frame rate can go down to 40FPS. When I look at After Burner hardware monitor the cards are only running at about 60% each. I have the latest driver, but have always gotten variable results.

Really? I thought that would have been great to max bf3 for 60+ fps at 1080p.

I thought so as well. They do well overall (one is a 6950 flashed to 6970, and the other is a true 6970) and never produce frame rates below 30 in anything I've tried, but I've found a lot of games will dip under 40 at times for no reason I can see. The cards are not being maxed out. I have read so much regarding settings and how to set them but it seems to me that AMD makes pretty crappy drivers. In fact, it seems every time I upgrade the drivers, some new problem pops up with one or another game. Right now they seem to be working pretty good. They are not maxing out frame rates, but everything is stable and nothing goes below 30 even during the most intensive action.

I have had to disable cfx in some games because it was just not working properly. In Skyrim I would get messed up map screens and borders. That happened after one of the driver updates, but seems to go away when cfx is disabled. I never seem to see the cards going over about 60%, and I don't think they are throttling because I have the power slider all the way to the right. I got so tired of uninstalling and reinstalling drivers to correct many issues, I finally did a major uninstall a month or so ago using AMD's instructions, and installed a beta driver that seems to be working better, but I hardly ever see any games that never go below 60 FPS.

Maybe I'll start running Frap a little more and keep a closer eye on it.

Now that we've been talking about how my cards are performing, I'm a sad panda. The funny thing is that the benchmarks I've run seem about right for 2 cards in cfx. Go figure.

Sorry, that sucks man. You really should be maxing out BF3 at 60+fps at 1080p I think... IIRC, I was getting at least 45 FPS with my single 6950 at 1080p (may have dipped a bit below that during intense periods). Have you tried running each card individually to see how they run (to see that nothing is wrong)? Or perhaps trying to flick your BIOS switch on the 6950 so that it uses the stock BIOS and see how Xfire fares?

Well for a 2500k overclocked not being able to handle 2 6970 thats something questionable... it may be drivers issue i guess?
with 2 6970 crossfire u should get constant 60fps for sure.

i have 1 xfx 7950 and i get 60fps in mayoralty of the maps

2500k should definitely handle 2x 6970s.

I haven't played BF3 in a few months. Just to check it, I just played an hour or so, and it was actually glued at 60 fps all the way through the game. I guess that beta driver I installed a month or so ago must have gotten things working properly. For me now, the bigger issue is GW2, which I've seen go under 40 fps several times. I even had to disable cfx for Skyrim because it just never works properly with cfx enabled. However, with just the HD6970 is seems to work pretty good.

I asked before but I'll ask again. Am I in the club? If not can I join? Also please check out my latest project here. I am liquid cooling my system in a 600t.
Thanks!
