I havn't stopped using them yet, but I am considering at least bumping up to the medium speed yates.
But yeah, the fan affect is huge, the GTX for example is showing close to 5X the performance differences between ultra low speed fans and ultra high speed fans...that's HUGE!
I'll have my 480GTX results up this weekend hopefully, it's been a fun test. It flat rips with the ultra highs...I don't even have enough heat to throw at it!..
