Water for GPUs and fan for Vrms. Should make for some consistent runs.

Hmm lets see here, I own 290x's, you own 7770s and yet here you are trying to act like an expert on something you have no experience with. If you aren't blasting fan % over 70% aftermarket 290x's still run very hot.

Tri-X is not a triple slot cooler.

The reviews disagree with your opinion. I had 2 290's (non x) and they were running cool enough but you'd have to crank up the fan to ofset how bad the cooler actually was.

With aftermarket this is not the case they run cool and quiet because they are not complete garbage which the ref cooler is.

Of course what someone would consider normal entropy others deem high as for myself I find it too high when there will be a big jump in power consumption due to it.

The definitely do not run quiet... sure they run "cool" (as in high 70s-low 80s) when you crank fan % over 70-80, but I don't personally enjoy having to run cards at that high of a fan offset.

Do you care for the %? You only care about the rpm. Nothing else. Some custom cards use low rpm fans so you need to crank them for overclocking. I had a pcs 290 and it was at 70C with 60%.Dont expect tri-x crossfire to give you goor result. Dumping all this hot air + a mediocre case can increase your temps

I have a feeling you're talking ref cards here because only they run that high with that fan percentage non reference runs cooler and has quieter fans.

even in CF:

Quote:
The XFX Double Dissipation fans are the quietest fans we’ve ever encountered at high RPM speeds. These fans are definitely quieter than the ASUS DirectCU II fans when the RPMs and fan speed are increased. We experienced the XFX fans running at 93% fan speed, but, we did not hear them at that level. Whereas, 93% fan speed on the ASUS DirectCU II video cards is extremely loud. On the ASUS cards we wouldn’t go over 75% fan speed because the noise is too loud. However, on the XFX Double Dissipation Edition video cards the fans were literally quiet, even at near maximum fan speed. While playing games, we never noticed fan noise at all. There was no ramping up of fan speed heard while starting to game and leaving the system on all day.

you probably have a really bad aftermarket model with dirt between the fins or something idk.
The asus model is indeed not the best of the pack as the review says but still kilometers ahead of the ref cooler.

LOL! It seems apples and oranges are being compared here... Different coolers and fans are on each gpu. Whats with all this talk with % numbers when fan speeds vary...? Shouldnt we compare RPM speeds instead wink.gif

Regardless isn't this new gpu rumored to be running on a hybrid water setup? Anyways i'll be running this with an aftermarket block when available sooo blah!

percentages is in no way a measurement for one fan could run 2k but could another could run 8k all that really matters is dB or dBa if you actually going to weigh frequency into the equation.

you're completely right about that

Gentlemen, please continue the debate without adding in the little verbal jabs at each other.

You don't need it to get your point across.

Thanks.
