Unfortunately, that means my 590 driver write-up will not happen...To that, I'm sorry guys.
I'm going to start my own business, actually and already have a vendor backing + some of the interns are coming with when their contracts expire so, not much will really change.
I wish everyone in here the best of luck ~ You can still PM me, ask questions etc -- I can ironically, do significantly more elsewhere, than I ever could with AW and I'm actually very glad it ended, positively.
I will still be doing my SWTOR build -- I kind of saw this coming.
Again, any questions, feel free but, good luck, most of all -- Good luck smile.gif

Man first of all thanks for everything so far and BEST OF LUCK TO YOU in your new venture.

Whatever you do, with your knowledge things will be as you hope for I AM SURE.

So this means you wont be using a 590 anymore? the thread will miss your expertice, but its great that you will be in the OCN forums so it will be good to contact you when there is a problem via PM.

P.S. I can see you getting a 690 or 790 when it is released. I will follow your footsteps thumb.gif

Wow Crysis 2 is really pushing the card in DX11 Ultra with High Res Pack on.

i cant really get above 70 fps. I can get as low as 50



Also I noticed something. When playing Crysis 2 my temps were around 82 degrees. I paused the game and when i came back the temperatures were around 87-88 degrees.

I had noticed this with other games before too. For some reason when i pause a game the heat of the GPU gets more.

Any ideas?

Without the fan on the bottom, you're literally creating a vortex in the middle of your case.

It's a question of air dynamics within a closed area.

So the hot air is circling and only so much hot air is getting out -- It just continues in a constant cycle.

In fact, I bet if you played a game with the side of your case, off -- You'd notice a big difference.

You have no idea how i am dying to install my fan tomorrow. I am looking for more possibilities to install fans to but so far I cant see any.

However i might change the 200mm fan on the top of my case with a coolermaster megaflow fan.

I can take that part of the case out btw but my feet could anytime enter inside my hardware biggrin.gif as the case is sitting below my desk right near my feet.

I put my big toe into a 2500 rpm enermax, once ~ Imagine how exciting that was thumb.gif

Your issue is that nothing is funneling air to exit the case, you're just expecting it to exit, so it's not.

And when it idles and the fan speed slows down, nothing is pushing the hot air out as forcefully as it was so, it vortexes.

With the fan on the bottom, you'll have a constant stream/push for the air to leave and you'll cool the card down, significantly.

When playing a game the GPU usage is constantly changing due to differences in what is being rendered at any given time. In some games if you pause when GPU usage is very high (90+%) then walk off for say 20 mins, your card will have been working very hard that whole time so temperatures will peak. Not all games are like this, and have forced v-sync in their menus to stop the GPU overworking unnecessarily.

Starcraft II were forced to implement this feature after people's GPUs were working at full pelt in the pause menu, overheating and dying!

thank you so much. If it wasnt for you i would have never ever got that fan. Matter of fact i never ever saw that there was a place to put a fan there. Before there were bunch of cables there, now it got cleaned and ready to have a fan.

This is the fan i purchased

Its the best I could find here. They claim to have 30% airflow than most top of the line fans. We shall see.

Next month i will also change the fans that are on the rear top (120mm) and on the top (200mm). I hear great things about the megaflow fan.

Also lets not forget that my stand is not here yet. so there is not enough airflow on the bottom of the case.

P.S. thanx God that your big toe is alright biggrin.gif

Thats what ihad thought actually. I had paused Crysis 2 when an explosion had happened. But now i know better. However it seems safe to exit a game unless you are taking a toilet break or grabing a soda from the kitchen.

I would hate to pause my game, watch a soccer game than 2 hours later when i come back my GPU would have burned down biggrin.gif

It actually fractured my big toe ~ Tells you how strong those fans are.

That being said, make sure you put the fan in so the air is blowing upwards ~ And, pressure isn't something you really need to worry about in that case but, you may want a better top fan in the future, a higher CFM would create some suction -- Once you understand how fans work, etc ~ Static pressure ~ bla bla bla ~ You'll get where to put your fans etc.

Rush, drew a fantastic picture that I think he deserves rep for thumb.gif
