I also want to test my PSU with the cards maxed out. What program should I use?
-I am currently using MSI afterburner to monitor my temp and adjust my fan profile. Is this still a good product?
-What's the best method of changing over the drivers? My understanding is this: go to safe mode, uninstall drivers via control panel. Turn off computer, switch hardware. Reinstall new drivers on boot.
I'd appreciate you help! Thx!
Whoah, that's a nice upgrade, Battlefield 3, huh?
Regarding your questions;
1. I don't know, I don't run benchmarks.
2. Just play games.
3. MSI Afterburner is the best in my opinion, specially because of the fan profile and on-screen display.
4. I just uninstall them (I don't go into Safe Mode), restart, and install the new ones.
