Im seriously considering upgrading to vista now becuase of games like crysis and halo 2. My only concern is when i used to have it on my computer my GPU fan speed blew at 100% which is very loud and rivatuner dosent work with the new drivers. So i am wondering if there is any way to correct this. Thanks!

Another vote for RT, the latest version works fine. I have mine set to throttle from 60% to 80% to 90% depending on temps.

Get the Thermalright HR03 Plus for your GTX and never have to worry about fan speeds or temps again! :)

that thing is to big, i would have to remove both my x-fi and capture card to fit that thing

Sorry, yeah, that would pose a problem. It is a big cooler for sure.

i will they would make a single slot cooler, that would have heat pikes extent outwards, and a huge heatsink that would go parallel with the side panel

No, not what he said. That thing is awefully big, even when the main heatsink is positioned on the back side of the card. The Zalman VF1000 might be a better choice.

Good idea actually. Hmm...where is my torch.

Huge, yes. Its works very well though but for single card use.

This worked for me with RT 2.01.

For the first part of even getting to the fan speed settings, there is no tab for me to even access it(see attached). Any way to get this working? thanks!
