Re: Far Cry Benchmark 6800GT/Ultra owners
ah the pauses, I experienced the same thing. You need to download riva tuner, and set the lower power 3d/performance 3d core/mem clocks to be the same. If you fiddle around with it, you should get a really stable system. Search around the forums for "lower power 3d". I hear this is due to either 1. a PSU not putting out enough on the 12v rail, 2. voltage not enough on gpu itself.
As a note, I didn't update the GPU bios - It was the chaintech vnf3-250 bios that made the biggest difference. I also updated that jpg in my last post, reflecting a 4 count run @ 415/1130. This is pretty much my sweet spot with stock cooling.
