Hello everyone! I have a few doubts about my GTX, hope everyone here can help me
1. Does anybody know why a card with blower cooler uses so low fan RPM (besides less noise, of course). With EVGA precision I created a custom fan curve and it never goes farther than 63c with Unigine benchmark. The sound is noticeable, of course.
2. I have this case: http://www.silverstonetek.com/raven/products/index.php?model=RVZ01
I got the reference card thinking it would help with temps all around the case and with the card itself; although I was not completely wrong, mostly I was. The case is cool alright with the blower cooler, except in the GPU area at load. Other users in the forum have open cooler cards with way lower temps than mine at load (58c with EVGA ACX) and a cool case. This temps are without modifying the fan curve on the open-air cooler card..
So, given this, if I were to change my blower style card for an open-cooler card, would you recommend me the EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI or any other? I care for noise first, but I also care for overclocking capability.
Also, in the GPU area I have space to put two fans that would throw air to the GPU directly. Would you guys recommend an optimized airflow fan or a static pressure optimized fan for the GPU area? The case emphasizes in positive air pressure, but the distance between the card and a 25mm fan would be roughly 1.5 inches, 2 at most.
Thanks everyone in advance!
