Default Quick Vista Question.

Im seriously considering upgrading to vista now becuase of games like crysis and halo 2. My only concern is when i used to have it on my computer my GPU fan speed blew at 100% which is very loud and rivatuner dosent work with the new drivers. So i am wondering if there is any way to correct this. Thanks!

Another vote for RT, the latest version works fine. I have mine set to throttle from 60% to 80% to 90% depending on temps.

Get the Thermalright HR03 Plus for your GTX and never have to worry about fan speeds or temps again!
