    It's not really bad thanks to the a/c blasting, but it's still much hotter than the rest of the house :(

    have no clue to be honest, would GPU-Z tell me?
    Some better fans and this heatsink will rock even more. These fans I have on it now don't have a good static pressure at all, flow a lot but when they don't have anything in front of them.

    Tip for anybody considering the venomous x, if you have any of those red/brown paper washers laying around use them on the underside of the mount. On some boards it can cause shorts, I guess from the pressure grinding through the protective top layers of the board, or bad trace routing, whichever you blame it on.

    Thanks for the heads up, I'll be needing a cooler sometime in the near future and had my eyes set on either that one or another Mega. I'll keep that in mind in case I get a Ven-X :toast:

    They run pretty cool, fan is turned up to 100% and with the heat in my room they stay under 60ยบ the whole time. Not bad at all.

    I kept mine at 60% fan because otherwise it was too loud :eek:

    Should do a bit over 4k each :)

    The X6 has a 110CFM Scythe at full blast for the HS, one on the side at full blast, that makes two totaling a pretty loud and heavy flowing 220CFM. Then I have a kinda loud fan blowing on the NB and first vid card.

    My i7 has another two of the 110CFM'ers on the HS, one blowing on the 8800's and one on the RAM. Don't think the cards at 100% would bother me at all :laugh:
    :respect: That's just awesome sir :respect:

    I can't stand that much noise, I run the fans on the H50 at full speed, but they're quiet fans. And the GTX260 always has to stay below 65%

    Thanks! I want to do the same thing with the old Celeron-M chip I've got in my sale thread, but I'd have to pry the metal block off and shave off the pins first :( Too much work.

    They look pretty nice. Have you tried doing any gaming on the GTS pair?

    I am one of those people that is used to sleeping with a fan on or something. I actually like the noise. I do plan in the future to put all rigs in a case with some quiet fans to quite down the room a bit. However with that many things running, it won't be too quiet, just quieter.

    That'll be awesome, makes me want to do it, I have some Lap top memory laying around here as well :D
    Naw dude, no games installed on that rig. What I will do eventually is have a little bench session with them. But these are mainly here just to fold bro, you know i don't deal much with Nvidia :laugh: Just that ATI sucks big balls when it comes to folding.
