I'm amazed!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just got my gtx 570's and omg , they are amazing. I'm amazed most by the temps and the sound. They are running at 60% fan speed 24/7, at 31c and you can barely hear them. I have them at 799mhz's and they don't break a sweat there. I went with reference model EVGA's, since I'm using a silverstone raven rv02 and the air just goes right through them (sucks air from botton and out the back) and they are a little more than 2 inches on top of the middle 180mm fan. If I ever ran CLOSE to 60% on the 5870, it sounded like a jet was in my room! I ran the 5870 at 35% 24/7, and it ran at over 40c..

I also bought a Antec Gamer 900watt Power supply that is pretty awesome also if anybody is looking at one. Since my Corsair 650tx wouldn't cut it for SLI.

I made the switch from a single ATI 5870 1gb, and this is the first time I've used an nivida product. Well I do have a 8600gt mobile in my laptop .

I'm just amazed at these cards! And HIGHLY suggest them. I'm just scared to mess with the voltages from hearing all the scary stories around here from blowing them up.

You'll be fine as long as you don't mess with the voltages. Congrats on your cards! That's a beastly setup!
