Default Re: Anyone running a Q9650 here?

Well, the results are really not conclusive or even worth me wasting time on. The cards do run a few degrees cooler, but not much. Here are screenies (note, full size they are 1920x1200):
Idle, no fan:

Load, no fan:

Then, I had a 120mm Thermaltake blowing on both video cards directly..

Idle, with fan:

Load, with fan:

I noticed it was just a few degrees cooler at full load, but nothing to really worry about. The big difference was just in the temps of my video cards. And that was with the fan running at about 1000RPMs to keep the system quiet. I think I'll leave it the way it is.
