I can't play dirt 2 or dirt 3 they both crash mad.gif Dirt 3 sometimes won't load, And other times it will crash right before a race.

Shut down your PC, unplug the power to your 6970, then power the PC back. Check CCC that your settings are still OK (mine for some reason bumped up to OC settings), then launch Dirt3. It should work. This appears to be a DX11 issue, as if I enable DX9 with both 6990s, the game works. Seems they need a ATI hotfix or driver update for CrossfireX to work in DX11 on Dirt3 IMO.

As for Dirt2, I haven't had any issues running it with both 6990s. What you may want to check is that you have the Dirt2 1.1 patch loaded to see if it works, as some don't know it exists.

Hey folks, started going through the pages, but 287...way too many. Question; current setup:

intel i7-960
Asus EAH 5970
asus rampage 3 Extreme mobo
6 gigs corsair memory (forgot timings)
7200 RPM HD (split into 3 drives, swap file is on it's own drive, OS on the C:, games on D

I play Crysis, Crysis 2, StarCraft 2. SC2 obviously runs flawlessly. Crysis did run crazy well but I've just started it and to make it look even better, i've installed the Real Lifesis mod which makes it look every better but does decrease performance. I currently get around 35 fps in Crysis with Real Lifesis.

Crysis 2..it runs with the HD texture pack and the new dx 11 upgrade, but it is slower than it was before. (no fps counter in the game; need to figure out how to run the benchmark tool).

I was thinking of selling my 5990, and some other stuff i have for cash, and getting dual 6990s. BUT, I am thinking my CPU may limit the performance possibility.

Do folks think it will be worth it to increase performance?

Also, future games (in addition to me still playing sc2 online) will be Serious Sam 3 coming out this summer.

Regards,

Sanjay

I don't think you will have any CPU limit. Crysis 2 before DX11 & high res pack, was 100-120 FPS average for me on 1920x108. With DX11 and high res pack, the tessellation gets heavy and can drop FPS down at times in Ultra setting. In extreme setting, its 80-100FPS average. You can also adjust tessellation setting in CCC to gain FPS if it drops too much.

Yep. But my point was that the VREG on my 2 6970s, with EK waterblocks, is EXACTLY the same has the VREG temps on my 6990 with a Koolance waterblock.

My temps on the stock cooler is also about the same at idle as my waterblock. Doesn't show anything except that they can both handle a low load. It's only at sustained high loads that the differences appear.

He was referring to load temperatures, not idle temperatures.
