look forward to having you aboard

Ok guys, I want to talk about the card and the precieved problems that come with it. First off, as everbody knows, its huge but it fit in my case just fine and my excuss for psu's powers this beast just fine.Second, I had to flash mine like so many others and when it finally worked( thanks dopey for reassuring me that I am not a complete dumbaxx) fan control was there and all was well. Now about the fan, I havent heard the noises that people say they are hearing from theres, at 20% , my cpu cooler was twice as loud.As for my temps at 20%, it stayed at 55-56c on both gpus. Did not game on it but for maybe 5 mim. and saw temps hit mid 70's playing cod4, game look great and fps rocked maxed out, on my screenshots taken with fraps shows 300-400 fps just walking around (love it). Now back to the flash, to say the least it was an adventure for me, I had a 3 year old in my face, a 4 month choc.lab running around and my wife wanting me to come upstairs every 5 min. for nothing . So in the process I am formatting my usb stick and oops there goes my external hd, wipped clean, so I thought there is my screw up for the night, ( always have at least 1, lol) next I get my format done, load the files on it, set the stick to 1, go into boot menu click enter on usb and get this *** USB DEVICE IS NOT AVALIBLE, ***, 4 hours of trying all i knew, ( and dopey knew) it turned ou to be the fact that i needed to unplug the printer, WTH . After that bam all went very smooth (dell's, go figure). Now i have a question about the fan, on my 4890 you set to 50% and its there, on the 5970 when you set the fan it has to rev up to get to the speed you set, a little strange i thought. Can sombody please confirm this?Well looks like i have to go back to work now, bummer, will play with it more tonight and talk more about it tomorrow.
Thanks for reading

Actually I only helped you for like an hour
Are you using CCC for fan control? I use afterburner for everything. No revving, unless you set a sloping profile. I like mine under 25% until about 55c, then I up it like 20% every 10c or so, with 100% at 85c. card seems to stay under 75c during extended gaming at about 50%.
