The EVGA GTX 460 2WIN Is Cool, But... - Page 4

Also, the 2600k @ 4.5ghz is getting 40k ppd (clearly three fermi's are robbing it some) and the 570 SC is getting 14k (it sucks). The 460 2 win simply gets the most ppd gpu wise and that's why I have it.

As for gaming, though, I would agree.. somewhat. If the board has 2 pci-e slots and there is a big enough gap to allow for air flow to the first card, then, ya, don't go with the 460 2 win if you're going to do SLI. But, if there is no space between cards, or you just simply want one card, than I think the 460 2 win is a very reasonable option.

It's nice to see a 460 2win owner on OCN. I'm seriously considering purchasing this card. However, my only concern is the temp. I've looked at 2 reviews and all showed this card's max temp is ~88C at stock clock and auto fan (I assume). My 460 Hawk at 900/2000 never reached beyond 65C so...
I'd be greatly appreciated if you could do a quick check on furmark/game at 80% fan, see how the temp goes. Thanks.
And do you OC this card, too?

I haven't ran furmark on the card and the most intensive game played on it has probably been Crysis Warhead. At 65% fan, the card never gets above 75c on either core, folding or gaming. Folding uses both cores at 99% and the card has been folding 24/7 for at least a month now.

Current overclock is 800/1600/1800 at 1v. Anything much higher and I get unstable machine error while folding. I am sure you could game at higher clocks though. Also, I, personally, have never been one for messing with the voltage. Piece of mind thing I guess.

I could run furmark on the card but that would have to wait till after CC.

Yeah, I guess. I'm just taking into account the fact that you get 2x higher PPD with the 2600K.

Ill be grabbing 2 for 24/7 gpu folding along with a 590 for a gaming card.

I could go sandybridge but I already have a nice w3520 chip so I dont see the point in building a new chipset. Also, I dont want to fold bigadv, as I like to game often as well as other things so I like to have a my cpu ready when I need it.

Yeah, but another 2600k would also require another mobo, more ram, another HDD, another Win 7 disc/key (linux is way over my head biggrin.gif), and a case. That would be way more than just the $320 for the 2600k.

well you dont need much or top notch anything else if your just using the cpu as a folder, ram and hdd are pretty cheap, and if price really matters then learning linux is a requirement, also, you dont necessarily need a case. so maybe 450 for a F@H ready machine? I believe his point is valid, however for my own personal choice I need to be able to pick up my machine and go, having a multi machine farm ruins that. So GPU farm it is

Ohh, I agree. Might be more than $450 though, unless I just really suck at finding deals. frown.gif

This wouldn't even beat two 460s in real SLI, not to mention two 2GB 5870s.
