I'm currently having some problems with a component in my computer and it always seems to happen when my 470's reach a certain fan speed/temperature in Crysis and various other games so now I want to force my framerate to about 30fps.
I found out I could temporarily fix the problem by using fraps and limiting the FPS to 30 while recording which lowered temps on both cards to around 80, but that took up terabytes of space for something like half a hour of gameplay.
So I need a more permanent solution, and that solution (until I get this problem resolved) will be to limit Crysis to 30fps or lower.
Framerates normally hover around 40-60fps with vsync on but until i sort it out i won't be seeing the beauty of crysis for a while, nor will i be able to finish my map
Try going to customize under the resolution selector in the Nvidia control panel and selecting one of the 29hz HDTV resolutions and then enabling Vsync in the game. I have no idea if it will work or not but worth a try.
Phenom II x4 955BE stock
GTX470 SLI stock speeds
Antec tpq 1000W PSU (more than enough)
Case is a Antec twelve hundred
I found that my GPU's are the problem, i grabbed a 6850 from ebay and it works fine, both of my 470's (one at a time) crash the computer after 10-15 minutes into crysis.
I just need to find a way to keep them working at a predictable load so I can test them further, I'm looking at aftermarket coolers because my guess is they don't like hovering around 86C when I'm playing games.
