I will probably end up baking in a minimum fan speed of 50-60% and just running them that way. This rig does not sit idle, it either plays or folds. I have other rigs more task oriented for work and casual use.
I have had full water cooling loops. At the rate I change hardware it can be more trouble that its worth.
Nice it worked out!
When I was running air, I'd prefer low noice and higher temps than higher noise and lower temps.
Those chips will be running good for years in any temperature.
If nVidia says the chip can handle 95C, than it will.
