I dont want to jump ship but I dont want to waste these cards either.

will an i7 2600k give me the power to use these or wont matter?
What 1000Watt PSU u have? brand?

A X6 should not bottleneck, cant you get another 6950 or borrow it, to see if its the cards fault? There are people that have cards with broken CF connectors on the card itself, its hard to test, because you will need another 6950 just for testing.

can you show me a screen shot of your overclock? voltage, cpu clock, cpu-nb, and memory speed and clock and voltage. mine scales just fine. i get about over 150+frames on battlefeild and left for dead and stuff. everything set on high and this is at 1920x1080. your x6 isnt bottleneck those cards that bad. try to install this as well too and try it and see if it makse it better. link is below

Attached is a screen shot with cpuz up. Its good to here another phenom x 6 is able to scale well, gives me hope. I am at 3.7GHz right now there should be no need to go any higher I tried it at 3.9 and saw no increase in scaling. Maybee the one card is bad but i tried both separately and they both game great. The bios on the msi 6950 was in the wrong position when I got it though it was in 1 postion so had to switch it to two, that was weird. Then again if it was bad why would metro 2033 scale so good and not bad company 2?

OK. READ THIS VERY CAREFULLY

The 1055t IS your bottleneck.
The main reason i upgraded to the i7 2600k, is that my crossfire 6970's were lacking with my 1090t OC @ 4.2ghz.
ANY amd cpu cannot utilize the full potential of crossfireX atm.

The reason metro scales 100% is because of its coding. theres a utilization balance and metro is 100% gpu.
Other games like crysis, far cry2 and BFBC2 are more CPU hungry, therefore the better cpu will always show better scaling.

If you want your cards to run free, pick up an i7 2500k or 2600k.
Full stop, do not let anyone tell you otherwise, i speak through experience.

i dont get what you are looking for
your hardware is top of the line...so whatever it spits out i think you should be happy with...i dont think there are any game out there that can really utilize all of that hardware...if you were working w/ a dualcore and mid range GPU then i can understand what you are looking for but you are not...your hardware is fine...wait another 2 years then your system will be tested

cpu-nb overclock? where is it at? hyper link...please move that down to 2000ghz as close as you can...and try it again. bring the cpu-nb up as high as you can. 2800 if you can...

cpu/nb is at 1.35v and nb is at 2600 cant go any higher bios wont let me.

Like I said if i have to continue overclocking the **** outta this processor gonna just go i7.

Do you thik just adding 2 more monitors for eyefinity would help?

Read my above post.. my 1090t @ 4.2ghz was lacking power for the 2 cards i have.

You know there are lots of people with this setup and they are not failing?

Lower NB 1 notch, we are not looking for more OC, we are looking at a bad OC.
Please follow the link in the previous posts and install the crossfire profiles correctly, since thats 99% of the time the issue, 1% of the time its that a card is bad.

Did you try both cards seperate and compare performance?
