Is that safe for the card to be pluged 3X into the power supply it's not going to go boom it's not like over voltage?
post #393 of 539
I love mine - great card with great overclockability and cooling. Three slots? No problem! No SLI for me anyway (I don't like the idea).

Hello,

If I would put the card in an ASUS M4A77 mainboard, would the airflow be a problem with a sound card in the lowest PCI slot? And how would you compare it to the MSI Twin Frozr III when it comes to noise level at various fan speeds?

Thanks a lot.
post #395 of 539
The airflow would be great on that board with a PCI soundcard in the lowest slot, you would still have a full slot of free space for the card to breathe.

At the same fan speeds the Asus is likely louder than the MSI but the Asus overall is a much quieter card. At 60% on both the MSI may be quieter by a little or they may be the same, but the thing is the Asus never needs to run it's fan higher than about 33%, whereas the MSI will run it's fan at 60%. The Asus is just hands down the better card if noise and cooling are strong considerations in your purchase. The areas the MSI is better is they are binned so on average they will have a slightly higher chance of a high overclock, and they are only dual slot which is required for some situations. Other than that the Asus is a great card that should work out really well for you.

Thanks for the detailed explanation.

Would you still think there's a chance to overclock the ASUS to for example at least GTX 580 level?

How about the power consumption between those two? Should they be the same, although the MSI uses two 6-pin connectors and the ASUS a 6-pin and an 8-pin one? Currently on one PC here I'm running a Gainward GTX 570 and it works fine so far, which uses two 6-pin connectors. Would that mean the ASUS will work as well? I'm not sure yet if the PSU has an 8-pin connector (it's a Zalman ZM600-HP) but I'll look into that of course.

Last (for now) but not least, I read the ASUS doesn't have OCP. Does that in the end really increase the risk of breaking the card? May it be by overclocking or general use?

Edit: Sorry for the amount of questions, but after checking more into the size I'm now also wondering if the length might be a problem, if not for any other reason then at least when it comes to airflow, in my ASUS Vento 3600 case.

Thanks once more.

Does voltage adjustments work on this card using Afterburner? I'm looking into getting this card for another computer.

Thanks guys.

Yes you just need a 2.2.0 version which is still in beta, but other than that works beautifully and much better than the Asus program.

The power consumption between the MSI and Asus will be very similar. I don't believe that PSU has an 8pin PCIe power connection so that might not be the best choice although 600wats is plenty for this card. Normally you could just use a 2x6pin to 8 pin adapter but I think that PSU only has two 6 pin connections so that wouldn't work either. I would just look for a better quality PSU, the wattage is fine though, if you haven't bought that one yet. The lack of OCP on the Asus does not increase the likelihood of failure due to normal circumstances, the only thing the OCP would affect is if you decided to leave Furmark or OCCT GPU running overnight which wouldn't be a good idea, but that would be more user error than the cards fault. Otherwise you will have no issues running or overclocking the card. The Asus does have a chance to be overclocked to the performance of a 580 (I think it takes around 850Mhz or 880Mhz or so to match a 772Mhz 580) but it's not guaranteed. I might go so far as to say that 880 is unlikely, you'd need a lucky card to do that which could happen but somewhere around 850 is much more likely.

I don't know if the card will fit in that case, but hopefully you can find a measurement for the card online somewhere, I could fit it in an Antec 300 if that helps. Also that case looks to have pretty terrible airflow so if it doesn't fit a case upgrade might be in order. It looks like even a sub $50 Antec 300 will provide much better airflow when two front fans are added to it. Good luck though.

I'm still trying to figure out how to connect an 8-pin PCI-E card to it, although I believe it's possible since in another forum I read about someone successfully connecting it to a Gainward GLH, which also needs a 6-pin as well as an 8-pin. The PSU we (I'm putting the parts together for both my girlfriend and me) already have.

Regarding the case, if it does fit, would you go as far as to say that it's not recommended to use the card in it or that it would be too hot and by that negate the whole benefit of being cool and quiet?

Points at sig

I had to up the voltage a notch cause of the BF3 beta drivers, but still going strong since February.
