EVGA will have the same tools as msi but more branded towards their stuff, which you have. I'd dL E-LEET, Precision and evga's oc tool and try again. It's possible it's just somehting to do with those msi programs.

I'd do that and start from there.

Done. Running Furmark right now with both GPUs working at 99%. Will edit this post with results shortly.

Alright guys...is this good?

Damn man. I wonder what the deal is? I just ran mine again at stock clocks. Your 580s should perform at least as well as my cards.

I dunno bro. Ill mess with them tomorrow and see if i can't get them overclocked a bit tomorrow but yes, you are right....they should be throwing up better numbers for sure. I need you or N8 to hop on Teamviewer and see if you guys see anything obvious that we've missed.

Try this. Rename Furmark.exe to etqw.exe and run it again. See what that gives you.

A little better picture...

post #68 of 89
That is one sweet looking machine! Very clean indeed. My rig should be singing by tomorrow. Had to finally get some professional help so I will be able to find out what the hell has been going on. We've been texting some back and forth and so far I know that the chipset driver was never installed amongst other things. Geez.

PS...can you take some more pics plz.
post #69 of 89
Yes, the chipset drivers are critical for a properly functioning machine. Motherboards often come with some bloatware, but the chipset drivers should be installed right after you get the OS up and running.

hehehehe, don't worry about it, it all comes with the territory. You learn for your mistakes. I'm a self taught, as I'm sure most all of us are. Think of it like this, you'll likely never make that mistake again

I usually have a driver checklist because I've done the exact same thing.

Absolutely. I'll never forget one build in the late 90s where I bought an AGP version of the Voodoo 3 3000, only to find that my motherboard did not have an AGP slot. It was a harsh way for me to find out what AGP really meant.

Glad to hear that you are making some progress towards getting it worked out. This is the only other picture I have in my photobucket acct. I will upload some more later.

Heat sinks to cool the chipset.

Well you've already got water cooling don't you? That processor can't be overclocked at 3.5GHz can it be?

The teal heatsinks come on the motherboard and dissipate heat from the on board chipset. I have the processor overclocked to 4.9ghz using a H100 (water cooling).

K...well graphics cards are working well..

Only problem is I'm getting tons of screen tearing now unless I either enable V-Sync or get a plasma...

post #79 of 89
You'll see tearing with a plasma as well (I use a plasma). It looks most pronounced when the GPUs are spitting out a really high frame rate as there are lots of overlapping frames. I always use vsync mostly for this reason.

So you still see tearing with a 600Hz plasma?

Also...have you tried capping your fps out at like 90 or so to see if that helps so you dont have to use vsync?

Those displays still have a 60Hz refresh rate, but with a 600Hz sub-field drive. You'll still get tearing on those without v-sync.

Capping the frame rate to something lower can reduce tearing, but you'll still see it if the output is not perfectly in sync to the display's refresh rate.

I don't have a problem with using v-sync. The few games that might exhibit lag due to v-sync can be fixed by using the triple buffering feature with D3DOverrider.

What about with those supposed 120hz lcds? Still 60hz? Are they just a marketing gimick?

I haven't been following the latest LCD tech. Tearing will occur at any frame rate (albeit to varying degrees) and refresh rate if you don't have v-sync enabled.

If you don't like screen tearing one bit, then you should use v-sync. There is nothing wrong with maintaining a 60fps frame rate by using v-sync with 60Hz output. Getting 100fps peaks is useless outside of benchmarking. For actual gaming, a steady 60fps is perfectly fine (in fact, it's the best option for games that move in faster pace as the frame rate increases) and no screen tearing is ideal.

VSyncs is full effect and damn does BF3 look amazing on Ultra locked in at a buttery smooth 60fps!
post #85 of 89
Good to know everything is working right for you. Deciding what settings are optimal for your interests can be overwhelming at first, but at least PC gamers have the choice to do things like enable or disable v-sync.

Yessir..playing BF3 on Ultra last night with no stutter was a surreal experience although my room felt like a sauna with both those 580's cranking!

I decided I wanted to upgrade all my stock corsair fans for better and quieter cooling. After researching I decided to go with Gentle Typhoon AP-15s for my 120mm fans and a Megaflow to replace my 200mm. I figured while I was at it, I would go push/pull on my H100. I ran into an issue during the install. There was a clearance issue with the lower H100 fan and the 8pin CPU connector on my Asus P8Z68. I was able to mount the H100 offcenter using some of the holes in the vent/grate on the top of my 650d. You can see this in the first picture.







post #88 of 89
So what's going on with the build and how come you aren't playing any BF3? BTW I'm thinking of getting that same Motherboard and implementing some liquid cooling as well.
