You can hear your CPU fan turn off? Nice GPU cooler...
At least my CPU fan is too slow at idle to be heard when the GPU cooler is running. Maybe yours is running full tilt at most times?
Anyway, as said, SpeedFan is a nice program. I love it and with the newer versions it bumps up in increments of 10% when the CPU gets hot to give a more smooth change (instead of sudden 100%). Noticed it the instant I got it, so I guess it makes a difference
I visibly see my CPU fan stop. Believe it or not, some cases have see-through viewing panels
