Default Expected temps at 7868x1440 - 05-01-2013, 08:26 | posts: 338 | Location: Birmingham

Hi

Thinking of buying 2 more hazro 27 inch monitors which will be driven by 2x7970.
My temps at 2560x1440 playing bf3 maxed out is around 79c
If I went up to 7867x1440 would the temps rocket up?
Obviously I will need to lower settings (drop aa) but what about the temps?

Ask because everyone I see on the tube is running h2o on there cards at this extream resolution.

Anyone running 2x7970 on air at this res?

Assuming those cards already run at full load, temps wouldn't change much, if at all.
If they don't already, they might go up a bit.

Res doesn't matter for temps, GPU load does.

The usage will increase in some parts so maybe the temps a little bit. The usage on memory side will up too, so you can expect them to run higher.. But seriously, i dont know, i have not really seen any test on this ( or take care of them ).

It should be marginal at best outside idle ( with 3 monitors your card with idle at higher clock speed.

Temperatures will be fine. Only way you are going to see higher temps, is if you aren't running the cards at 100% load on the games you are playing now. I run 3x refernce 7970's on air using 5760x1080 eyefinty. I notice no temperature difference benchmarking card on a single screen or at eyefinity resolutions.

Trifire is pretty amazing...great scaling, I can play most games with maxed settings. Stability wise it is no different then crossfire. I found that using a frame limiter gives much smoother gaming when running Trifinity.

Awhile ago there was a driver issue with crossfire+eyefinity on the x79 and x58 systems. You would get a system freeze but it has since been fixed in a driver update. That has been my only issue so far, minus a few games not supporting eyefinty. The folks over at Widescreen Gaming Forums have a app that is called Flawless Widescreen that will tweak\hack games to fix issue with eyefinity.


Here is a few video of my son gaming, sorry the quality is not great all I have is a Iphone.

Defiance Eyefinity

Darksiders 2

Black Ops 2 Eyefinity
