Mine arived yesterday and I love it so far runs really quite and prity cool aswell.

Only tryed a mild overclock so far 1100/1475 +20% power tune and stock volts seems really good havent benchmarked anything (been haveing to much fun gaming) but everything feels really smooth.

As far as Vram gose.

BF3, with everything maxed out in game settings @2560x1600 max I have seen it use is around 1850mb.

Crysis, 2 everything maxed out in game settings @1900x1200 2300mb

Outta interest, with BF3 and those settings what FPS are you getting, the average? I'm more interested knowing in 1920 tbh.

I've seen that even with latest gen cards and everything maxed online people are still struggling to get a constant 60 fps. Still get dips into low 50s 40s which I find crazy for such powerful cards.

Like I said, if you can take time to post your results would be appreciated :D

Fps s normaly between around 44/65 most of the time, I would gues avarageing around 50/52.

But I think my C2Q @3ghz is bottlenecking me abit my GPU useage is normaly around 85/95%

My GPU usage in Crysis 2 is around 80/90% with the fps avarageing around 40


Just did acouple of Heaven runs @1900x1080 with 4xaa and tes normal got 1853, and @ 1650x1050 same settings I scored 2025. But again think my CPU is a slight bottleneck again as the GPU useage was only around 95%
