I was just curious what the defualt auto fan profile looked like compared to the one I created (using Afterburner).
It looks to me like nVidia set the card to run at a constant 90C. Maybe they were concerned that the fan noise was going to hurt them?
My manually created auto profile shaves off 14C for an additional 11% fan speed increase, and also ramps up in a more linear fashion.
I don't know, I'm just not comfortable with a constant 90C, although nVidia obviously is.
