Currently it feels like my GTX 690 is doing some of the exhaust work. Gaming makes the temperature go to around 80 - 85 degrees, with fans at 65%, I feel that's my noise limit.

Do you think the Twin Turbo would help? I think it would, the hot air should be vented fast enough wink.gif ?

Lets give you a picture also (the fan should fit with the soundcard, right?):

Should be (Ok) , close to the sound card but it's ok, got the same setup with my old fashioned audigy 2ZS soundblaster card which also is very close from the 690gtx ... no problem at all.

Your temperature should be better than with the stock coolling , so i think it's worth it ... if temps are good, you can even try to lower a bit the fan ( 1200/1100 rpm --> 1000/900 rpm) to minimise the "acoustic threshold".

that way the boost clock will be higher in most cases, your performance should be better without overclocking...

But remember with the stock design most of the hot exhaust air is away from the tower, outside of it.

With the accelero, all the hot air (VRM and RAM chips) will stay inner PC case ...

So the norhbridge (NB) / southbridge (SB) & HDD's will run hotter that's a fact on non well ventilated case.

Your intake fan (180 mm) shoud obvisouly help

I run the fan at max speed 1500 rpm when overvolting, on AUTO @ Stock speed (custom made AB fan profile).

the two PWN fans of the accelero (120 mm fans) are very silent compared to the stock one:

GTX 690 stock design :
5.3 Sone for 1 x 92mm fan @ 3000rpm max- temp 84°C @ stock speed

Accelero:
0.4 Sone for 2 x 120 mm fans @ 1500rpm max - temp 72°C @ stock speed

In my case, noise isn't an issue, playing on a 65' Plasma TV i could barely hear the fan sound of the accelero at 1500 Rpm (5.1 SURROUND muted) ...

anyway my ps3 runs louder tongue.gif

Good luck!!!

nein es tut mir leid aber ....

"Der Accelerator Twin Turbo 690 misst 288 x 138 x 50 Millimeter und entspricht daher der Dual-Slot-Bauweise. Das Gewicht wird von ARCTIC mit 805 Gramm angegeben..."

" entspricht daher der Dual-Slot-Bauweise" ..... stands for dual slot design ... not triple slot ! thumb.gif

Hi everyone,

Since I'm the second post on the club I thought I'd add sky3nt GTX 690 BIOS to the front page of 690 Owners Club to make it easier for members to see and point others who might be interested in trying it.

Remember try this at your own risk. If you have questions you can post them here and sky3nt should be subbed and will respond. No need to PM him. He's curious to see how it works for members wanting to try it out. smile.gif

Personally I've got my 690 in a second rig which I do not access and for what it's being used for it's more GPU than needed. Since I don't get much time if any at all on it I won't be testing it myself.

If only had access to this just a couple months sooner. tongue.gif

Hi All,

I've been away for a week. Then powered my rig, found few updates from nvidia and for Battlefield 4 and now it runs much better. Game seems more optimized now. Vram doesn't get over 1200mb on both Vrams, very similar. Runs at about 80-100fps (1080).
I am very happy 690 user so far! And I am sure will be fine until 890?! smile.gif

Yea, I installed the first update for Battlefield 4 last night, and had the same problem.
I have a minimal overclock on my card, not tried it at stock, but I think it was the update that messed it.

Updated too, but no issue! Runs better than before!

Guys,

I've found that can add another card for PhysX to get better performance? Any ideas if I add extra GTX 560Ti to my existing GTX 690 setup? GTX 560Ti will do PhysX calculations, while GTX 690 will do Dual GPU work without messing up with PhysX?

I tried sky3nt's BIOS (rev A2) but EZflash refuses to flash the second card. Something about PCI ID mismatch and hierarchy mismatch. I noticed that according to GPU-Z the two GPU cores actually had different stock BIOS. Am I missing something? Surely both cores need the new BIOS for new voltage and power targets?

Edit: Essentially, the REV A rom updates this card: 80.04.1E.00.14 (P2000-00g2)
but it will not update this card: 80.04.1E.00.13 (P2000-00g1)
