260 GTX: only 900 rpm @ 77° C! Bug or feature?
After installing the 180.48's for my XFX 260 GTX XXX I did some benchmarking while monitoring with gpu-z. In 2D it's working at 40% i.e. 742 rpm.
Now I used the crysis benchmark at 1600x1200, AA 4x, erverything High, aver. 33 fps.
After 15 minutes gpu-z showed 77° C but the fan speed worked surprisingly for me at 48%/ 906 rpm!
Is this normal or is the fan running at too low speeds?
Or is my card faulty?
I remember older drivers, where the fanspeed was much higher at about 1100 rpm when stressed.
