This 6970 fan is garbage. - Page 3

Thread Starter 
40% is tolerable I find, 45% probably. I really don't see how 100% is close to tolerable with a fan like this, literally, LITERALLY, it sounds like a Vacuum. I don't think I could have 3 defective cards ina row though. tsm do you still use all 3 of your 6950's?

They spent 2 days on air while waiting for the waterblocks to arrive. The story on these cards heatwise was a lie.

And since everyone is listing their temps I idle at 27c and load at 43c.

6950 idles 45-50C and 100% (furmark) loads up to 90-92C (while only bumping the fan profile to ~50%).

Built to handle heat like a BAWWS

but is it supposed to work so hard as soon as I load up a game? Or watch a video? It gets up to 56c if I watch a video on youtube.

Pretty sure 100c. Just like most everything (except AMD CPUs)

But the cooler the better. A cold card is a happy card. A happy card is a happy you.

And cold cards last longer.

Open a youtube vid, right click on the vid and uncheck hardware acceleration or something.
