How about RAIDs? with all particles on? Lets say Seruah or Sabazious? Oh u are on about SLI I was thinking 1 480!

Tried Afterburner. I can run 1600|1990 and my performance will drop. 1594|1900 is perfectly fine though.

I applied shin etsu paste to my stock gtx470. But I never got the huge temp drops other people have. The card maxes out at around 93c during heaven benchmark. Before I changed the paste I used to get up to 95c. 93c seems to be the magic number it never goes above that in WoW or Heaven Benchmark. And this is with room temp of 65F.

65C room temperature? Where the hell do you live? Hell?

Edit: You probably meant 65F (at least I hope so), but yes thats a bit on the warmer end for a 470, isn't it? Maybe improve the airflow inside the case or increase the fanspeed to kick in with higher rpm once the card gets under load. Default autofan seems to keep the fanspeed pretty low (44%) for quite a long time, at least on my 480 that is.

haha thats F not C. Yeah its default fan profile that comes with the card. Fan never gets that loud for 93c either. I use scythe fans 1200rpms. I tried the 1600rpm fans but found them a bit loud.

I didn't see your post Apologies.

The game when not raiding is not a problem, but it is when I raid then its becomes a problem

I normally run raids in DX9 mode / shader 3 at res of 1920 by 1200 with 4X aa And 16AF (in game) with all sliders for visual effects maxed except with shadows and SSAO off and particles on low and only to myself. Even then, the i get like FPS in the 5-15 fps region when everyone is throwing stuff with lots of particle effects including the boss.

Normally DX10 isn't an issue in non raid situations also. DX10 is a no go for raids.

Sure I could turn the res down but, I like the 1920 by 1200 res for a sweet spot with my UI layout

I would appreciate any feedback.

How about potain area too where there are lots of grass?
