nothing on the screw
if they used a backplate the card would be larger, and there'd be no room for air intake in SLI.
<- Waiting on SLI results.
cool if they had add-on heat pipes that connected to the other cards for sli or quad setup
Thanks W1zzard,it did kinda look like the sticker was on the screw.The piece of foam is,but i guess thats not a problem when replacing the cooler.
Yeah well the foam is so ghetto . Looks like some just said here this should do they will buy it up any ways . IDK maybe it is just me but some thing that runs so screaming hot shouldn't be using foam to keep it from contacting the other , But hey who am I to say other wise ?
I bet one thing is going to happen your power bill is going up , Man like running Chernobyl . What kind of cooling are you getting for your room / office ?
feels like a mid-summer day here
Does running them in sli noticably warm the room up?
Man you bet it does ! I bet at 90*c that room right now is at 29*-30*c ! LOL LIKE an Easy Bake Oven Just put in the loaf and bake !
The black foam is a last moment cheapo solution - totally ghetto modded
lol can you say epic fail .. i ran single card all day .. for some reason sli was not enabled in the nvidia control panel t.t
but at least the second card was keeping you warm, eh?
the foam is covering a screw that needs to be taken off to put in an after market cool right
Like some engineer came running down the production line saying STOP !!! You need to put this on ! some dude in the back of the production line is all pissed off he is having to put this POS foam on all the boards coming off the line .
I think that is a kitchen counter/worktop meeting the wall, like a granite counter or one of those fake granite ones that's like wood just with a pattern on top.
Could be floors but there is no skirting board in that picture.
So there is no difference in the cards? Just re badged?
You can fix this MAN this aint nothing you can't handle .
granite is boss
W1zzard's like "these cards have the worst scaling ever!"
Then comes the check and epic facepalm.
Mine arrive too! This morning!
Here you have a pic:
Direct form manufacturer for review it
WE want to see some action ! I want to see what they look like all nice and tucked in there home .
But, they are only the one's that count and they are the W1zzard's benches, tests and reviews!
Probably, lowest cost and easier. Plus a rear cover would reduce air flow and limit access; would involve more expense to develop it.
Foam can be removed/replaced easier and it probably was in the product bin at the time.
..and foam is cheap. These cards are already priced sort of high, no need to add anything fancy to drive the prices up more. Today I saw a few retailers jack up their prices. Buy one now before prices go up further, if you can find one... If you even want to bother.
I honestly can't understand why the moment a new driver is loaded and you have 2 cards, the Nvidia CP sets default to single card.
It happened to me a couple of times on the laptop, I'd update the drivers then go straight to benchmark or game, and start thinking that my cards are on the good road to become obsolete.
Then I'd have a fffuuu moment when I remember that the driver had disabled my SLI and I was running on one card :shadedshu
So, when does your home version "nuke power plant" show up to power it? W1zz will soon be adding to the global warming problem. Bad W1zz. Killing kittens and puppies to run his new fermi. :shadedshu
