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?
I don't feel confident enough to say that case would be a terrible idea but I will tell you this, it's airflow is quite antiquated, a 80mm intake and 120mm exhaust and nothing else is pretty weak by today's standards. I can also say that an Antec 300 with two front intakes would be considerably better but I don't really know how bad that case would be. Wouldn't be the worst case be to get the card in and see for yourself and buy a new case if necessary? I mean I hope that you already have that case and aren't buying it new, because if you are then... don't. tongue.gif

Look at my sig, my case fits this card fine and if you are going to SLI in the future if possible for you, go with a dual slot card instead of another ASUS DCUII because most 'standard' motherboards don't fit 2 triple slot cards with enough room to breathe. If you go with my motherboard you will get no room between cards at 8x and 8x.

So in summary the HAF 912 to the HAF X are good cases that will have great air flow for these cards, but if you are going to SLI these go with a dual slot card for cooling purposes.

Thanks.

I just bought this card a half hour ago. It will be paired with a 1100T, I can't wait to see what they both do together:)

We already have the cases. Since ~2005. tongue.gif Considering we passed our planned budget already anyways we kind of would like to not buy new cases now as well. In November, resp. December we might get the NZXT Phantom which finally has a look we like. Taken that into consideration, do you think the ASUS cards would be bearable, also in "quiet" games, in our old case for 2 months?
At what fan speed percentage would you say the card starts to become noisy?

My card just came in today! I have three questions.

First question - Is there any way to run dual monitors without always being in 3d mode? The extra voltage raises my gpu temp by 12 degrees idle.

Second question - My stock voltage is 1.025v! I thought these cards came at like .988v??

Third question - My temps are pretty high. Using the default fan control I'm idling at 35 in 2d mode 47 in 3d mode and hitting 60 in extreme kmark test in kombustor. The op in this thread is 24/48. That is a big difference! Does this solely come down to case airflow? I leave both my case sides off, but lots of fresh air around at 24 degrees ambient.

In this video [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Lqv-mQRyF0"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Lqv-mQRyF0[/ame] the guy says you can't use afterburner to OC voltage for this card. When I unlock voltage control in afterburner it shows 1.025 for me also. It maybe an error. Check asus smartdoctor and see what it shows. I usually don't mess with bumping voltage on cards unless I can afford to replace them.

I use the latest 2.2.0 Beta8 and i can tune volts with MSI AB and my DCII.

Im able to bench at 965mhz @ 1.1v while temp remain very good at 40% fan.

I have 2.2.0 beta8 also. When I unlock voltage control it shows 1.025 as stock voltage though.

I was just using it to monitor temps and stress the card. I'll dl the asus thing and see what it says. I am getting voltage numbers from GPUZ. Afterburner doesn't show voltage at all.

I'm hitting 65C in bc2 at 26% fan speed frown.gif

Not all GPU come with the same stock volts. Its all about the binning but this chip remain in between a margin of "error".

lets say that it need to use MAX 250w to acheive its stock clock. Some chip will do stock clock with 225w, others with more or even less but if it need more than 250w the chip is sent to another lane. In this case, garbage ... no other card use this GPU with less SP.

The chip that dont make it to the GTX580 with 512SP, ends up in the GTX570 with 480SP.
