670 FTW stutter, screen tearing.

So I have been trying to get my 670 FTW settings figured out on a few games. Diablo 3 is giving me screen tearing or stutter with different settings and Assassins Creed 3 brotherhood crashes if I try to max out all the settings. I'm confused as to which settings I should have in the Nvidia control panel vs each game's graphics options.

I have

i7 960 @ 3.2 stock
12GB of dominator RAM @ 1066
evga gtx 670 FTW 2GB
asus rampage iii formula
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

It's weird cuz Diablo 3 runs perfectly on my friends pc. He has the same 670 FTW but has an i7 2600k @3.4, 4GB of vengeance ram, and an asus Z77 Sabertooth board.

Could it be my 960 or my RAM bottlenecking the 670 FTW? I plan on overclocking the 960 and getting the RAM to it's rated 1600 but need to get some more fans first.

Has anyone out there had similar problems with the EVGA GTX 670 FTW and found solutions to them?

  1. Make sure v-sync is on in the driver and you have the latest nvidia drivers, I would check the beta's out.
  2. Check for the beta that fix v-sync issue.
  3. Based on where your cpu sits ( http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-overclock,3106-5.html ) it would seem more than able to do the job. An OC can't hurt.

    Have you run the gpu card in tests to see if it does the same or ask your buddy to let you try out his 670?

    You should be able to just max all those games out w/o issue.
  4. I have an I7 920, and I notice some slight stuttering when my OC drops to default. Normally I have a 3.8ghz OC, but stock is 2.67ghz. An OC may be what you need.

    Granted, for me, the OC takes me from lows in the 60's to having over 100 FPS all the time (I have a 120hz monitor, so I desire this).
  5. I really doubt this is a processor issue, I played around with Diablo 3 at stock speed (2.66Ghz) and at 3.8 and 4. There wasn't a huge difference at all.

    The tearing is most definitely v sync issues. The stuttering could just be driver problems or your GPU going into a power saving mode when it's not supposed to.

    Monitor your CPU and GPU activity, it will give you a better understanding of what's going on, make sure your clocks are solid.
