Default Re: Far Cry Benchmark 6800GT/Ultra owners

There's only 2 to 3 FPS difference between all the latest Forcware drivers in this particular demo so i don't think that is your problem and judging by your scores in your sig it doesn't look like there's anything wrong with your rig, you're more than likely getting 'throttling' which i experienced as well when i o/clock my GFX card and tried to run this demo but was easily fixed by disabling Fast Writes in the Bios. I notice you have the same mobo and i know some-one else who also has the K8N Neo2 and had the same problem with Fast Writes and the demo. Try running the demo with your CPU and GPU set at Default clock speeds.

ps, i notice Tr1ck has Fast Writes disabled as well
