Hello guys!


So it's been a month with this GPU and I've been kinda dissapointed. The only games that I can play properly are CS:GO and League of Legends. Other DX11 titles are a mess: my GPU usage is low so I get either low fps, frame drops or stuttering.


I've tried remounting the GPU, overclocking, downclocking, setting the power limit settings up or down, replacing the PSU, reinstalled drivers (15.7.1, 15.8, 15.9 and the ones that came on the CD in the GPU's package), fresh installed Windows and so on..


In idle, the GPU never went above 60C, and in games, the most I had was 75C. In Unigine Valley it reached 80C though.


In Unigine Valley this is the score I had, which was pretty dissapointing:

The thing is I even play at 768p in the video above, even though I encouter the same problem at 1080p.
