    Default Graphics card help!!! 780 ti

    Ok so I have made a new thread because its now a different card and involves every game I play.

    So the problem I have is the same as with the evga 780. I now have a Asus 780 ti as I thought the evga must have been a faulty card.

    The performance I am getting from the 780 ti is sub par to all the benchmark tests I have seen online. With Arkham asylum I am getting fps ranging from 50+ to high 20s/ low 30s. When i turn off DX11 the fps improves greatly but in benchmark the game still dropped into mid 30s at times. There is also crackling sound and slowdown when the intro titles are loading. With crysis 3 I am getting anywhere from high 50s to mid 20s in larger areas. The change in fps is very noticeable.

    My specs again are -

    Intel core i7-2600k @3.4ghz
    16gb Kingston hyper x 1600 ram
    Asus gtx 780 ti directCU II OC 3gb
    corsair TX 750 psu
    Sabertooth P67 motherboard
    500gb harddrive

    The Card drivers are defiantly up to date. I have installed them manually. Ive had Geforce experience install them, and I have installed them off the cd (separate installs). I have verified all driver certificates and my Direct X is up to date. I have updated the P67 motherboard drivers and verified the integrity of the game cache for Arkham city.

    Where do I go from here! with these cards I was fully expecting a case of plug in and play at maximum graphics at an almost constant 60fps

    The only other option is your CPU overheating or your PSU not being able to handle the cards...You PSU may be getting old and not up to the task powering a 780. Though it is a very decent PSU but things do break.
    Also,
    Check the temps on your CPU while gaming...it may be throttling.

    I left Crysis 3 running in a large area where there is quite a bit of slowdown for about 20 mins then ran around a bit shooting barrels and people for about 10 mins and during that time the CPU reached a maximum temperature of about 68c which doesn't seem bad.

    ok ,so this is probably a stupid question but are the PCI e slots on your motherboard version 2.0 or version 3.0 ?

    No question is too stupid at this point!

    I am pretty sure the pci-e on the sabertooth p67 is 2.0 because this board had just come out when I bought it mid 2011.

    I have looked at various posts on the internet and this should not have a major impact on fps. The loss compaired to 3.0 is only a couple fps.

    Too be honest at first I thought that It was probably me expecting too much from the card. I thought I could put up with occasional slow down in crysis 3 and turning dx11 off on some games but after reading a few reviews of the asus 780 ti oc and seeing the benchmarks the card should play any game maxed out and smooth as butter at 1080p. There is defiantly something wrong

    I don't know what you expect us to do. I requested specific data in the other thread that can really help you in your diagnosis. To start, CPU and GPU temperatures under load, all voltages, under both idle and load, and CPU and GPU usage. If you do not have any programs that can get that information, please download Hardware Monitor and MSI Afterburner. They are both free. If you need help using Afterburner, just ask. I can refer you to a short Youtube tutorial.

    Also, tell me which slot the card is inserted into on your motherboard and the actual model of your motherboard.

    By the way, yes, there is something wrong. You should not be having these problems, especially with a Ti.

    Apologies MD, I must have missed your question. I will upload all relevant data tonight. Also My graphics card is installed into the top pci-e slot closest to the cpu.
