questions about MSI Hawk GTX 560 Ti

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I just bought an MSI Hawk GTX 560 Ti. I'm wondering what is the difference between Performance and Silent mode for the fans? This is toggled by the switch beside the SLI interface right?

And what does the header in the right side of the switch do? I'm reading in Google that it is a BIOS hookup but what exactly is that?

Please help. Thanks!

Just use 100% fan speed and there's nothing to worry about

I have the Hawk, silent mod isn't necessary since the card will downclock itself when it's idle.

Don't know what the header is. I doubt I'll ever find out, don't have a need to know.

Ok. Performance mode is all the switch all the way to the left right?

I still want to know what the BIOS hookup does.

performance mode is cool and loud, while silent mode is less cool but quiet.
playing around with it i only see a different fan profile thats it.
the reseved area is still not diclosed.
its printed on the pbc side right under the switch what areas do what.

I got that. Right now, I'm confused regarding what the BIOS hookup (white header beside the switch) does. Any info?
