8800GTX with Fan Mate 2???

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ok I finnaly got ahold of an eVGA 8800GTX, my old card a 7950 GT had a Zalman VF900 with the Fan Mate 2 control, I was wondering if it would be good to hook up the stock fan on the 8800GTX to the Fan Mate? (in all honesty just to avoid upping the Mobo to get the wire out... But would anyone see anything bad with hooking it up???? Any Benefits?

88oo GTX fan speed can be controlled through ntune and rivatuner. I see no reason to use the fan mate personally.

K, would be nice not to go through another 3rd party program tho lol, since the wiring is all there for the Fan Mate

Yes Personally i wouldnt bother too much as such things can be done through Rivatuner as Tubnotub1 said. I would see no benefit really by adding the Fan mate.

I wouldnt really consider ntune a 3rd party program as it is released by Nvidia alongside the most recent 88oo GTX drivers. I mean, if you want to put it there, you can, there is no reason that I can think of not to. I just think it would be superfluous.

Or you could get a 5.25" Fan controller than fits into your DVD slots and you can then use that to adjust CPU/GPU and case fan speeds. And see temps if you have a LCD screen.

I would really like one of them.

I dunno something similar to this:

Thats Not a bad Idea...However remember that Temp probes of a Fan controller wont give the most accurate temps as there not within the Core.

Well I had the Fan Mate wiring already installed from my 7950 GT, and I ended up taking it out, I'm in the process of hooking up my new RaidMax Volcano 630w PSU, thats why its taking so long lol.
