I just played BF2142 for the first time on my conroe..........****!<br />
<br />
This thing is incredible and I think it has unleashed my GPU. I get well over a 100 fps now with 4xAA, 8xAF, High Quality AF, etc, etc<br />
<br />
I am so happy right now <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
Shame Punk Buster keeps kicking me for no apparent reason <img src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Mad" class="inlineimg" />

You have a CPU much faster than anything that can currently be bought, and the fastest single GPU out there... and youre surprised? <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
Of course, both of those facts will change in a week when the Kentsfield and G80 come out, but at the moment... <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

I am a little surprised. With my X2 4400 I would get 60fps max with those settings and sometimes it would drop to 25-30fps, I thought the X24400 was bottlenecking the GPU........now I know it was<br />
<br />
I'll be getting the G80 in a month or so. This card will be up for grabs once I get enough REP, it'll be fairly cheap to because it was a gift <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

heh that sounds great man! now i got a idea for you...<br />
<br />
go and try and play it on ur old rig.. just for 15 min... then go back to ur new one again.<br />
<br />
i did that last night with america's army. i noticed that i was a better player with the new pc. prob by like 180% or so...<br />
<br />
tell me if u notice the same thing <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /> that way we can consider it a "fact"

I'm curiuos,<br>
what are you running for cpu temperatures, we have pretty much the identical system except I have a E6700.<br><br>
In order to get mine to 3.6GHz. I have to run at least 1.55 Vcore and my temps are in the high 50's.<br>
at 100% load using Intels TAT.<br><br>
Also what are you using for a GPU cooler to get that high of an overclock on your video card you must be using some after market cooling!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"><br><br>
Also, what are you using for a fan with that Red Shock?<br><br>

</div>I run TAT, SpeedFan & Core Temp. They all give the same or very similiar temps<br />
<br />
I must have got the luck of the draw. I'm definitely running 1.4125 in Bios, 450FSB x 8 and the temps never go above 52c with dual prime load. They reach 55-60 using the TAT test but that is insane stress<br />
<br />
I'm using stock cooler on the X1950XTX, its a monster cooler and extremely effective. idles at 35c load 60c<br />
<br />
I've got the Vantec Tornado 92mm (120cfm) on the Redshock and then directly in line with the CPU is a powerful case fan forcing cool air into the cpu fan........very effective.......27-30 idle, 52 4 hour dual prime<br />
<br />
I've got AS5 applied to both GPU & CPU

I haven't tried 6xAA with this setup. I tried it with the X24400 and it destroyed my FPS, I'll give it a go later<br />
<br />
What FPS do you get with 6 & 16?

I don't install CCC. I use ATI Tool to overclock and ATI Tray Tools for the graphics, my settings are:<br />
<br />
<br />
AAx4<br />
AFx8 (Quality with full Trilinear)<br />
High Quality AF Enabled<br />
High Quality Adaptive AA Enabled<br />
Vsync off<br />
Geometry Instancing Enabled<br />
Flip Queue Size 2<br />
Texture & Mip Map Level both High Quality<br />
<br />
It runs sweet like that but now you mention 6 & 16 I wanna try it <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />
