?

Should the Official INF be modified or not ?

    (I apologize for offline topics)

    Using Catalyst 10.12 and onwards, or any of Twl's drivers I had no issue with my CPU/RAM speed being limited [I am sure its not in anyways related to the later, with respect to drivers vs CPU/RAM].

    Currently with single cards (previously with 5850 and now currently with 6950) I have had no issues with my setup.

    My RAM: 4GB 800Mhz with 4-4-4-12 timings
    My CPU: I use P2 state at 2200Mhz with 0.85 CPU(V), 0.9250 NB(V)..never had any issue even in running Dragon age + mods at 4xSSAA all high as much as I can, or with ME2 with 4xSSAA, or with Oblivion with 24xEDAA with OOO, or even crysis at 4xSSAA (dx9) with CCC level 5 mod. (Those were in 5850 card itself..lol)

    My gaming res is 1680x1050.

    Only two games, ever in my life I had to use p1 state at 2700 MHz with 0.9875 CPU(V), 1.0 NB(V). Metro and GTA 4.

    A.K.A never used full speed of my quad..ever..

    I have tested OCing, but I never had the satisfaction when I overclocked everything..but had superb satisfaction of under-clocking my CPU with lowest CPU(V) my setup can use.

    Nobody ever questioned anyones systems to have any relation to this topic. Question was since I decided to study Intel new systems a bit how they really work. Never had anything to do with 'Catalyst [Modified build]'-topic.

    Since someone wanted to know I wrote few words of what to tweak for what increase.

    @commonly

    Hmm, might be that I cannot continue building new modded drivers in the near future, but guess that it's time at somepoint for some more intelligent
    being to take over CCC modding section.

    Without explaining too much just got a bit bad real life situation coming ahead, but I will drop all data I got on my HD online before this happens. This
    would happen, if I lose equipment on hand and modding would be impossibility. Currently fighting a bit on keeping the sh1t together as in the
    past had some bad situations, but always some way managed to go over them this time I ain't too sure. :frown:

    Actually ICH10R is horrible in it's design just wrong about Intel drivers for ICH10R on Intel CPU / Motherboard topic. There's like 10 times faster drivers
    available for these systems by just looking a little better on driver version installed. Also got tons of questions since used to tweak nforce SATA and RAID
    array drivers on few forums.

    as for the problem ahead. I have never seen money as an issue and no donation here could help the idea. I would still be using any donations to
    research of the new driver or donator requested content/hardware or data/games and I would never use anything donated to my own well being
    even, if it would be the last thing I do. I believe in chasing greater good much more than living many of my friends would most likely say the same. I
    see money as an object of 'fun' and exact situation of needing money would not be an issue as it's easy to make money at this world. A 'problem' is how
    you handle an situation is everything, but it's never a money issue even while it would be missing pennies.

    Upcoming situation is much deeper as I might lose apartment most likely and everything I own in the transaction to make quick decesion which I will try to
    avoid and, if this comes up to me selling everything I own, so be it.

    This would be most likely because disabled 'tray'-icon, heh, there's a bit bug at CCC 2.0, but if you got it installed this would be it.

    I am unsure setup of this kind how it would work anyway, as you can guess I don't have such monsters as test machines. CFX is not even tested for laptops by me.

    TwL,

    Question for you. What DLL and/or files are called on for Crossfire functionality? I'm curious as to what the result would be with mixing and matching the newer DLL/files with some of the older packages.

    What are your thoughts?

    You really don't wanna do that straight up. There's unfunctional DDs against the processing to D3D. Basically all new might be a good plan as something
    like 10.12a paritially works really great, but needs an desktop fixes for EyeFinity type of systems. Also, there is an issue with DVA code as it's been
    renew over and over again now since v10.12 and yet again at 11.1 and so on you cannot just drop any D3D driver on there the driver most understand
    the functions at least basic level otherwise the CCC won't work and/or the driver will start crashing either on overlay or while usage.

    Your best bet would most likely for CFX be 10.10e and only processing utilizing newer driver with something like complete D3D/OGL + Desktop
    modules from 11.1. However, you will need the DD and DX10-11 to match at minimum and those most be from 10.12 driver branch at least or you'll lose
    the new OCL functionality and as for that you also need GTK files from 11.1 again as only functional setup before 11.1 something like ATI CFX/NVIDIA
    hybrid would be 10.4a.

    @commonly

    Will be cleaning some crap up in real life for some days. My time currently is really damn limited and it's either I deal with this crap now, if I can and
    update the drivers as when I can think straight for a few hours. Sorry, but I don't think there's gonna be a modified build before I get this situation clear.

    hey TwL

    I installed your drivers "Final Build v5.10" everything went good, but apon launching black ops I was recieving artifacts/shader problems I believe, on main menu and when playing a lot of textures kept flickering.. I'm not sure what it could be? maybe I missed something, but I followed your instructions down to the letter. No overclocks or anything. Everything is fine when reverted back to offical 11.1a or previous drivers. I also ran FurMark for a while to check my cards for artifacts @max settings and high temp and everything was okay. What could it be do you think? I'd love to try out your drivers. I appreciate the work you put in these m8! HOOAH

    Well, working with it, looks like I need to do at least 1 change of system set now and give up the Core I7-950 + 1 of UD7 boards.

    Good news is this will most likely solve my problems, but bad news is all the damn testing of drivers are done against identical system set and it'll become an non-comparable with 6-core XEON. :(

    Anyway, in a middle of some HD repartitioning and copying. Sad to do so so so so many hours work for to lose something.

    Computers can be fixed and tweaked infinitely while life doesnt and sometimes it takes some drastic choiches to be made.

    Take your time, even if it will be ages, and give your best always.

    My best wishes and good luck, god bless.
