Hey all, I could use some more advice:

So I'm wondering if my CPU is bottle necking my Quad setup?

Because when I set my Bios to run my CPU @ 4.2, it has to run the Ram at 2:8/1067 speeds to be stable at that setting.

Yet, when I set the Ram to run at the mobo's specified speed of 2:10/1333, and the max I can OC my CPU to keep this stable is 3.3ghz - There is only a 100pt difference in 3DMark11 Extreme settings between the 4.2/1067 clock and the 3.3/1333 clock

So, is that a bottleneck? It's not like I'm getting bad performance. Quite the contrary. The only games that seem to not be running full blast are DX9 ones that are console ports. They all seem to run at a capped 60fps which I'm sure is because of the games config's and not a GPU scaling issue.

I'm just curious.

Temps in game still seem to be good. So far the highest I've hit on the top card is 83c, but I'm still considering a mobo switch out just for piece of mind if anything.

I know the new Sandy Bridge mobo's and CPU's can limit the card if they don't have the right slot setup to do a full x16 or whatever, but what about this revised one? Would this mobo and a properly OC'd I7 2600k be enough to really open the cards up?

http://www.evga.com/products/moreInf...%20Family&sw=5

And if not, and I still want to consider sticking with the X58 chipset, does that mean I can just upgrade the CPU to open the cards up? Or should I consider a new mobo as well?

Or, stick with what I have and wait for Ivy Bridge, because temps aside, it's not an issue performance wise?

Also, my second card was purchased a week ago from last Friday just a couple hours after becoming available in the EVGA online store, and arrived last Wed. And it has the same part number as my first one. I doubt the different part number on Newegg signifies a secret revision.

As I found when shopping for my Asus ROG notebook, that Newegg often has a different part number on products delegated to their site as they often have slight differences than the standard product.

For example, my Asus ROG notebook model is G73JH-A1. Newegg sells the exact same notebook under the model G73JH-X1 with the difference being that Newegg's doesn't come with a backpack, gaming mouse or Blu-Ray player like my model number does. Much like here where the Newegg version of the 590 doesn't come with the Mousepad and T-Shirt and is just the card. I really hope I'm wrong. I would love to get/see revised cards. But considering the timing of my second card's availability in EVGA's own store and having the same part number as the first one, and knowing that Newegg changes part numbers on other products the same as in this case, makes me feel pretty confident that it's the Newegg thing and not revised cards.

Of course we won't really know until RagingCain gets the bios of that part number, to in which I really hope I'm wrong and happily would eat crow.

Thanks to any and all for answers and input as to whether my CPU is holding back my 590 Quad setup and what to do if so.

Cheers!

I havent changed anything from factory settings on nvidia inspector. It did idle on stock BIOS. I remember my idle temps prior to the change and they definately were not 20c apart as they are now.

Guys I have an interesting problem - I started up Crysis today and for some reason my GPU usage doesn't go above ~50% anymore, leaving me with low FPS in some sequences. My card is the EVGA Classified on air and is completely unmodified, running the beta drivers (275.50). It was perfectly fine yesterday

Edit: I swapped back to my 2407WFP and it's perfectly fine again...

*shrugs*



Re-Edit: Nope. Couple of minutes of gameplay and usage dropped back down to ~50% on each GPU. Tested Crysis 2 and it appears fine.

@Smo: Prefer Maximum Performance is set for Power Management in nVidia Control Panel? If not, do that, I actually noticed a "smoothness" difference in my performance when I set it to that.

@RagingCain
I've figured out the GPU2 not going into P8 is related to multiple monitors. When I disable my secondary monitor, it drops into P8, turn it back on, it goes back into P0. Secondary is an LG 32" LED TV connected by (PC)DVI-D>VGA---VGA(TV). I'm going to try switching to DVI-D>HDMI----HDMI when I get back home.

On a side note I'm currently stable @ 745mhz core/1490 shader, 1830mhz memory @ .963v
Over 1830 on the memory I start to get performance loss, probably memory error garbage.

I'm gunna take a stab at 750 core when I get back.

Cheers for the suggestion - but I've never been able to open the NVIDIA Control Panel. God knows why, but it doesn't actually load up.

Odd. That might be something you wanna fix. Those drivers like to keep your power consumption as low as possible while still being able to power the gpu's and that causes issues in high demand situations in games. That setting I believe to be critical.

I decided to have a go at regressing to the 275.33 drivers and during installation it moaned about nvvsc.exe -install (or something like that). I continued with the installation and rebooted.

Control Panel still wouldn't open so I checked Services and found that it was set to Automatic but 'Stopped'. I clicked start and it gave me this;



I thought 'to hell with it,' and double clicked the Control Panel icon and it loaded up, but the only thing I have access to is;

Stereoscopic 3D
- Set up stereoscopic 3D
- View compatibility with games

Edit: Even though I'm back on 275.33 I'm still getting erratic GPU usage - never used to do it! I'm a bit baffled.
