Good luck and keep us posted smile.gif

Nah, I got it used, think it's about a year or so old. Around 2 years of warranty left. It seemed to develop the problem when it got to me/the original owner didn't hear the horrible fan noise it made. Still, I still don't see why it can't be done anyhow, even if I have to pay a small fee.

Edit: Woo! Guy at EVGA said it was okay, as the card is more expensive than the 760 on their site, all I have to pay is the backshipping cost! wheee.gif

I find that running the card out of the box, it runs too hot (hits thermal threshold and throttles).
Using MSI Afterburner, I've enabled the advanced fan control and only slightly moved up the first node (from 30C to 35C).
That left me with the following curve:

40% @ 35C; 60% @ 50C; 70% @ 60C; 90% @ 70C; 100% @ 75C

For met at least, it keeps my primary (hottest) card running well below 80C, and as a direct result, at full speed and never throttling.

I would say start with the default curve and tweak it to suit your needs smile.gif

Just curious why did you guys buy the EVGA when the msi stands out headand shoulders regarding thermals and noise?

Personally speaking, better price (around 17% less in EU), awesome support and guarantee extend possibility.
With the price difference i can get the arctic cooling cooler and play with lower noise and temp levels if want.
Now i having max 70°C while gaming with fan speed 50-84%. From noise perspective is not the quietest but temps are ok and all the hot air goes outside the box (blower style fan, crucial for future sli upgrade).

says who? i have two evga acx cooled 760's and they are more quiet than my twin frozr 3 msi 560ti 448 core ever was. the reason i didnt go msi is because of the "bad" (more like loud) expierence i had with the twin frozr cooler. regarding thermals, TheV who has the msi versions in SLI is reporting temps under 80c with a custom fan profile. i set mine up as well and am now getting under 80c in temps while benching also. also getting similar valley scores.

my brother has a 660ti with a twin frozr 4 and it gets pertty noisy too.

these are my first evga, ive only had msi/sapphire and xfx in the past.

they got super loud during benchmarking before setting up the custom fan profile...thats about it. i also have an air cooled case so its just a noise machine in general anyway, will probably switch to a corsair 550D or Fractal R4 sometime soon just for the extra noise reduction. everything sitting in a 500R atm.
