Well i aksed this question a couple of days ago. I had to do a software rebuild for my computer, and the new OS (Win 7 ultimate 64-bit, same as the one i formatted) Had an insane amount of microstter in my crossfire config, before i formatted however, i had no microstuttering at all. So why did it start now that i formatted. I was using the 11.12 Drivers and 11.12 cap 2 on both of them.

Well i got the prolem solved, for a day, when i went to play this morning, the microstutter was back, and it was worse than it was before. I didnt change anything, it just happened. So why should, all of a sudden, ther be a massive amount of microstutter all of a sudden.

Also this needs to be fixed sinec i only got the 2nd 6970 two days ago, for being able to play BF3 at ultra, with a framerate of 60 +

Specs:
AMD Phenom II x6 1055T @ 3.3GHZ
8GB DDR3 1333MHZ RAM
Gigabyte 880GA-UD3H
Crossfire 6970
11.12 drivers with cap2
Corsair TX850W

I think it has most to do with you running those powerful cards on a motherboard with X16 X4 configuration on the slots. http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...


I fixed it, some drivers had been corrupted during installation, so i just wiped the operating system and re-installed it. And it was fixed

Great news, here is a link to a CF mode test http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/pci-express-scaling...
To get the full benefit of your powerful cards I suggest your next upgrade is a motherboard that supports at min X8 X8 CF, especially if this reoccurs.


well im going to be getting a new CPU and motherboard next week so hopefully the performance will increase by quite a bit (im getting eitehr a 2500k or 2600k)

Go with the 2500k. It is the same exact CPU as the 2600k - just without hyper-threading, which games don't use.

As for as motherboards, there can be only one choice. The P8Z68-V Pro. That is the preferred gaming motherboard for the price.

Dual x8's are equal to dual x16's in every scenario except for multiple monitor setups. As for as x4's, I don't have a clue - never owned one.

i do a bit of 3D work and video editing. Anr allot of fraps recording, how much will the performance loss be on the 2500k while recording with fraps

also the motherboard sint sold anywhere near me, nor is in my price range. With the two card being jammed right up, itll get too loud and too hot. Something that i can do while in the middle of summer without aircon.

Im plannign on the AsRock Extreme 4 gen 3

When I am recording with fraps, I get a hit of about 5-10 fps. When I overclock to 4.5GHz or higher, I get no hit at all when using fraps.

If you plan on doing a lot of editing and such, then I guess maybe I can see getting a 2600k. But if you are going to be gaming mostly - the 2500k is the only sane choice IMO.

The motherboard you are going with should be fine.
