    Crossfire 7950/7970 owners, is it stable?

    Enjoy it mate. I would advise you install the CCC 13.2 Beta 4 drivers unless you are planning to play Crysis 3 as theer are a few anamolies with B5 on other games - most notably COD-BO2.

    Crossfire 7950/7970 owners, is it stable?

    I run 3x 7970's and if I am not benching on HWBot then I am playing, COD BO2, Arma II, Far Cry3 or Max Payne 3 at 5760x1080 @ 120hz and never have any dramas since CCC13.2 was released. Some games run a tad better in Crossfire so i tend to leave just 2x 70970s enabled if im not benching.

    Benchmarks. Advice needed to speed things up.

    Hi Guys, Are there any programs out there that show a solid, steady FPS in a window, so i can tweak AB live and monitor the difference that clock and voltage is making to my live FPS? Currently I run heaven and test that way, but we all know how flawed the Min FPS count is, and therefore the...

    Hi, Now my water cooled rig is up running and stable, I thought I would offer some info I have recorded thats kind of interesting. During benching and gaming, I have been creating a spreadsheet of everything I do and that includes power draw at the mains outlet. I was very surprised to find...

    AMD Catalyst™ driver version 8.95.5 released today.

    Join the club. The AMD changelogs often apear to have been written by someone illiterate. I really do wish they could get some driver and written support that was as good as the hardware engineers they seem to have. :( However, on a plus note, there are a lot of good reports from folk around...

    Do you have 1 or more 7970's + Eyefinity? If so, i need your help... Please read on.

    Hi guys, Ok, This is the scenario... Please bear with me. :) Since buying my 7970's I have been constantly testing and battling with OC settings, with my cards not liking to run over 1050 on the core regardless of voltage used. As soon as I try 1075 or above...BSOD 116. Whilst i realise...

    The Aquaero system controller is now programmed as follows: If the 1260 radiator inlet temp reaches 27 degrees fire up the 200mm fans at 20% speed. This then ramps up at 20% every 1 degree until 30degrees at which point they run full speed. If the water outlet into the reservoir sees 30...

    The first test is done and came out as follows. As you can see, the CPU is being looked after very well with room ambients of 22C, and the 7970's core and VRM's are having a hell of a time, although its worth noting they never get quite that hot after an hour on battlefield, so god knows what...

    Hi Guys, I am new to the forum and wasnt sure what first post to make, so I figured out it may as well be this one... I have been taking my cooling to its final step this weekend so thought it may be of interest for folks to have a bit of a reference topic as to how a few things work out...
