    Can someone recommend a standard fan curve for my GPU?

    Although I don't like waiting for 60C to start cooling the card. My logic is letting the temp of the card get ahead of the abilty to cool it. Once the temp gets that high, That late, Might not be able to get it to cool down. Although all depends on the air cooling of the card. Ref card or...

    Sapphire 7970 OC

    Thanks, See you have two. Thru with CF for awhile and will save some money going single. Card takes up 2/ 1/2 slots anyway and my last cards only took up two and were stacked togeather in 16x lanes. Have enough water to cool 3 GPU,s and CPU but Air will do on the card for now. Later:)

    GTX 680 Generally Faster Than HD 7970: New Benchmarks

    Agree, $550.00 is very Steep for a Vid card. In my case, I'm about 3 gens back even though CF helps a bunch. I think its time and sure couldn't do this on a yearly basis. Way I do it, Is get the strongest single card for the best price at the time. Then Double up when and if it starts to...
