Re: Fermis all over the place
+1, this is EXACTLY what I think. There are a number of people that do think however that its just loud, loud, loud, even when their rigs are off. But yeah at 70% or under no big deal and little besides Furmark seems to drive them that hard.
Now at 100% running Furmark, yes, very loud. As Maxwell Smart would say, "That's the SECOND loudest GPU I've ever heard." The 7800 GTX 512 is still king of the loudest GPU I've ever owned.
