btw is anyone here with my mobo and my cpu? i ask because i want to know if i can oc the cpu more than 3 ghz.
I got same kinda setup and my 7870 card seems to work 99% power when its checked from catalyst settings, it only depend what game you play.
Some of games give only on 60-70% but still fps is lv 60.
try skyrim or witcher II and boost your catalyst setup best way it works and it should burn as hell.
