Mine is water cooled and temps stay in control even at 1.55v on the NB (which is required to keep my OC stable....)
By the way am I frying my nb at 1.55v?? Assuming temps stay very cool.
Noodle, I am well over a year on my system with 1.4 going to the NB. No issues, no degradation. Everest reports my motherboard temp at 29c now with 1 card, but was around 33c when I had 2.
The fan may be a bit loud, but til the they get a couple coolers out for my 285gtx I cant hear anything over that jet turbine. Also with 4 120mm fans going noise is obviously not a big issue with me. I got use to it a long time ago and its just part of my surroundings.
@ korn. good investigation work. But actually its the other evil... work
I work for a roofing companie doing drawings and site plans, that was just my cheat sheet from google earth.. I do about 65% of my work before I even leave the office..
