id use electrical tape if you can get it to be safe as scotch tape looses stickiness over time, however it should not melt anytime soon

thanks i'll try to get electrical tape soon
what about bios modding the card so that the fan runs slower > less noise? since the card originally went up to 90ºC under load and now doesnt go past 65ºC, I'd feel safe lowering the speed a little and it getting a little hotter… the thing is I run mac most of the time so it would have to be a bios mod

you'll be fine without it, that's unnecessary, and the benefit of a cooler running card outweighs slightly hotter wires

I'm not worried about the wires, I was thinking along the lines of reducing the noise generated… if it used to get up to 90ºC under stress with the old fan, I'm more than ok with it going up to 85ºC with this one… Anyhow, I found the info myself and (supposedly) set the fan to 25%. I stressed it with OCCT 4 for ~25' and it got up to 86ºC, so it seems to work. I can't make out much of a difference nois wise thou.
