Official NVIDIA GTX400 Series Owners Thread - Page 5

post #41 of 1902
this was the only quote i've seen from nividia regarding it...from http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1258/15/

"We are currently keeping memory clock high to avoid some screen flicker when changing power states, so for now we are running higher idle power in dual-screen setups. Not sure when/if this will be changed. Also note we're trading off temps for acoustic quality at idle. We could ratchet down the temp, but need to turn up the fan to do so. Our fan control is set to not start increasing fan until we're up near the 80's, so the higher temp is actually by design to keep the acoustics lower." - NVIDIA PR

so it seems like they've slightly addressed it because the review was saying they we getting idle temps of 90c....seems like they've just pushed up the fan speed to bring the idle down

these cards look intense

Heat shmeat - it worked out well for me:

If these were tests in school, all you guys would be happy you're getting in the 90's!

Read how my new 470 saved the day:

I do believe I have the best use of a Fermi to date!

I have DVI to HDMI cables, but no mini HDMI to regular HDMI so i can't test that on my monitor unless the card comes with the mini HDMI cable. if so i'll try it. but lets keep this thread for owners and posting, not for questions n such. use regular Nvidia forum for that

Has anyone else noticed how hot the 480 gets after about maybe 10 mins in game? I mean seriously my hand was getting so warm that I couldn't leave it there. Is it the same with the 470's?
