Default Big improvement in performance with my Sli setup

Hope this helps others that are having the same problem as myself.

Having tried most things that I could think of I've finally found this information (why didn't I think of this before).
This may help others that are using EVGA Precision Tool.

C.o.D. now runs smoother. % of use on both cards has fallen from about 70% to about 55% and the temps have fallen also from around 50--60deg to 40--45deg.
Should have thought of this earlier.

Use Precision Tool to limit frame rate target.

When I checked mine the frame rate was set to refresh rate. I've now lowered this to 35fps and have the results that I've been struggling to achieve.
Here is the link to EVGA's Precision Tool page with an instruction video, hope this helps.

By the way, I'm not using the latest patch/hotfix but have gone back to beta 18956.

Good luck.

Ok Grathos,

Just for you I've re-installed the latest patch/hotfix, here are the results: -

Some slight stuttering (but game now playable, not as smooth as 18956), percentage of use now down to about 40--45% on each card, temps are down to about 45deg on each card (as I've said earlier the Asus runs at about 2deg cooler than the EVGA always has).

Will now continue to try the latest patch/hotfix, this has given me hope.

AWESOME!

Thanks for this Rick, much appreciated!!!!

People in my squad will love you for this (I have one with two GTX590)

By the way, you probably know this (but just in case), you can copy the whole directory of the game in another location, apply the patch there. Have STEAM running in the background and then start mannualy the launch.exe of the patched or unpatched directory.
This way I have all versions of CoD on my PC, from the very first one (with the really nice graphics)

Another thing I've noticed too Grathos, before my 1gb cards were running at the full 1024mb on each card, now down to about 870mb each card. I love it when I see less stress and better performance.
