Just like the Founders Edition, the Palit GeForce RTX 3070 JetStream OC has fan stop, which is great for keeping system noise levels low outside of gaming, as they shut down completely.
Gaming noise levels are clearly higher than the NVIDIA Founders Edition, as are temperatures. It seems Palit's cooler is having a hard time keeping up with the FE, and Palit didn't want to compromise on temperatures. The problem is the increased power draw, which means more heat and has the cooler working harder to keep the card cool. On the next page, we'll show that the cooler is actually better than the FE heatsink, but that advantage is nullified due to the higher power draw of the card.
