Default Re: Undervolting GTX280 - The Way To Be Cool!

Really bad idea to undervolt any electronic component below manufacturer's specs, they are set that way for a reason - to provide a tolerance buffer.

Try ripping out the fan and heatsink and watercooling it instead, if the fan noise is bothering you. Dangerden is now selling water blocks designed for the GTX 280.
