So i recently purchased an asus dcII gtx670. And i noticed it's quiet, really quiet. So quiet i went and enabled in-game monitoring.
During an intensive game it runs up to 65-71degrees, with the fan still at 10%. Is this by design, or would it be better to bump the fanspeed a bit.
If the GPU and thermal grease can handle this no problem, i'd rather keep the fan at the lowest RPM possible. Because these bearings are never really good in vga fans. (posted a thread about that one earlier).
Case it's housed in is a CM690 nvidia edition, with all the optional casefans, and an extra 80mm placed infront of the vga area. So i think airflow is quite sufficient.
EDIT: Also i checked out the PCB before i installed it, seems as though they fitted heatsinks on the power supply. This would mean they can run the fan so low by default. But this brings me back to the original question above
Thanks in advance
