I heard that quadfire would not work. I'm not saying I don't believe you at all.

Can we see some benchies? I'm really curious to see how they scale.

If I enable manual fan control through CCC or Afterburner and set it to 45ish, will the card automatically turn it up if it needs to during a game? My 6850 idles at 48-52 and is quite loud lol

No but it's very simple to setup a fan profile in msi afterburner.

Unless you have high ambient temps or are running two or more monitors your idle temps are high.

Have you tried changing your TIM (thermal interface material)and reseating your cooler?

If you want to cool down the temps and reduce noise go with an aftermarket cooler or if you have the money to spend water cool although I think water is overkill for a 6850.

There are lots of coolers to choose from mine where 35$ each.Check out this thread.

Nah I'm running a single 1080p monitor. I'll take a look at afterburner and see what I can do.

What you are saying is that if I lower the fan speed to 45% and then I start to play a game, it will automatically speed up if it needs to? I don't want it to stay at 45% cos I'm afraid it might overheat.

And cheers for the reply.

no it will stay at 45% as the card keeps getting hotter.
Set a profile with afterburner so the speed ramps up with the temps.
You can also set it lower at idle so you wont hear it but your idle temps will raise a little.

here is a pic of my profile

I'm confused as to how to set a range. (I assume that's what I do)

I go to settings and then the fan tab like above and click that checkbox but what do I need to do next?

EDIT: Play with the graph I see!

So what's a normal idle temp then? Mine is at 44.

This is probably a dumb question but Afterburner has to be running for this to stay like this yea?

yes it has to be running but thats fine because with it running you can also setup overclock profiles so your card overclocks automatically and the fan ramps up with temps thats a lot considering once its setup all you have to do is start it.You can also set it to auto-start.

I'd say high 30's to mid 40's even higher with dual monitors.But it depends on lots of things mostly ambient temp and air flow in your case.But if an overclocked cpu is raising temps in your case your idle temps are going to go up not to mention if you overclock the videocard it-self.
