I definitely would not do that. Can't say I have a definitive answer, but that's a good way to fry the input/output tabs on the cards. That's a no-no on most electronics.

Except for fans, I flip the switch on the back of the PSU when I unplug or plug in anything so I would say NO!

The DC2T fan maxed out for me at 45% at full gpu load so straight comparison seems unfair if Toxic is st 70%.

DC2T also hit 75c temp at gaming load. So, its quiet, but there is a bit of gimmickry maybe.

Anyone have a Toxic? Run tge fan at 45% and rrport the temp. Conversely, domeone with DC2T run fan at 70% and check noise and temp. I returned my DC2T because I had to temove the hdd cage to fit it and I need the cage.

Hello everyone,

I've recently had some discussion with thread starter - Durvelle27

If you've submitted proof of your GPU and haven't been submitted yet but would like to be added to the OP of the club thread: Please send PM to Durvelle27 with your GPU manufacturer and Series and he will add you.

hey people.
Well i connected the Xfire bridge (with the system off lol) and i have run a fire-strike bench, check it out :- http://www.3dmark.com/fs/1141818

I think it's a pretty good score personally biggrin.gif

Edit: it's a little less than double my score with a single 280X http://www.3dmark.com/fs/1032764

is it just me or has it been almost 2 weeks since the toxic has been in stock? unless i'm missing them at 4 am or something, i haven't seen them in a while.... really wanting to get at least one for now (and probably a second later, maybe with a games bundle or something). Granted i haven't bought all the parts for my system yet, i'm waiting for black friday, but with something like the toxic it might not be in stock then...

No worries dude
If you have Steam just search 3DMark, they have a free demo which runs all the tests and is limited to basic settings or you can buy it for £18.99
