    Ah yeah, reminds me of the days of quad SLI'd 7950 GX2s... every time I installed a new driver performance would go down and only then would I remember to manually go into the nVidia CP and enable Quad SLI.

    Even better, with a 9800 GX2 it defaults to PhsyX enabled and SLI disabled... WHY???

    so its mounted in a benching type case ?no sides ? no "oven effect?"...at least thats what i am assuming when you say "in air...not in a case" which would explain the lower temps....lol...i quoted the wrong comment....heres the one i meant to quote....

    All that it's mounted "in the air": not in a case.

    While that explanation makes sense, my question to the one giving it is why hasn't this ever been necessary on any other graphics card?

    More likely it's a lame attempt to prevent a SLI caused china syndrome event.

    Again, never ever been needed on any other card before...that I know of. Doesn't that strike you as a little odd?

    No one can appreciate the 'foam' until it's function is tested and tried in an SLI setup...

    Personally I think the 480 looks pretty cool. Even if the foam is an after thought, at least they thought about it and prevent possible embarrassment in the future if people's SLI rigs start catching fire from short circuits...

    No typo there, that what happens to clock speeds when you plug in second monitor. Wish W1z would add two monitor testing on the power consumption pages as this happens on all GDDR5 cards. As in, stick another monitor in and 2D clocks/voltages are gone.

    At least NVIDIA "improved", Fermi goes to video clocks, while my GTX 280 goes straight to 3D clocks.

    nVidia changed the bios on the retail cards from what was on the review samples. To lower temps they sped up fan speeds. legit reviews

    kinda contradicts the, " Don't worry they're designed to run hot", response from nVidia when they were originally queried about temps. Now it'll be, "They aren't loud the fans are designed to sound that way". :rolleyes:

    I will try upload screens today.

    These clocks are because it enter to 2D mode when you are at Desktop, in IDLE.

    Thanks for explaining OUTSIDE.
    Tbh though we here are more interested in the load temperatures... ;)

    LOAD? Gaming (like FarCry2), with the FAN at 100% not passes than 56ºC. With automatic-fan not passes than 85ºC. In furmark... not arrive to 90ºC.

    Meh... despite his post being a little eccentric, I think the guy's got a point. You have a high-end card with a fancypants heatsink sold at a premium price... then you have this little piece of foam on the back? Sorta throws the entire image off doesn't it?

    Oh and people, stop asking for SLI reviews or W1z is going to crack another bad joke not on April Fools day, this time he'll be selling the site to the MSI forum dude who started the 'RTFM' joke, THEN we're in trouble. With all kidding aside, W1z is going to get to it like he always does... just wait. ;)

    Nah, asking W1z for a SLI review just shows that we like his reviews :p

    Umm, throw out another reference design heatsink that has metal on the exterior? Everything uses plastic shrouds which won't cause an issue with shorts.

    Where did this number come from?

    WTF does this foam strip really do? If OUTSIDES temps are so low as they are then why the hell is this strip even there? To prevent short circuiting? Ummm... What?

    is it really because of that metallic grid on the front ?

    That metallic grill is actually part of the heatsink :respect:
    The heatsink design is kind of a dumb idea if you ask me.

    I wonder how long till one of these cards die in Sli. I've seen a gtx 280 go out pretty quickly. W1zzard, I hope you can do a review soon.

    also remember that the cards beeeeend and sag. if the top card sagged down, it'd have no air intake - it'd be sucking on the back of the bottom card.
