Interesting about the fan speeds. I tried to get people to post their fan speeds for the last 3 giveaway's for the data but the informal nature of the giveaway's it get's overlooked in the temperature hunt.Okay, I've used this on my overclocked BFG 8800GTOC (750 core/1900 shader/2100 mem)
My 8800GT was BIOS edited so that the fan is always on 40% and starts to ramp up at 45c and is 100% at 55c
I've included the "*" to point out that at those temps the fan speeds are not constant. They seem to waver about +/- 3% RPM which is likely the reason for the wavering temperatures.
So... 1c idle difference, at least a 3c or 4c load difference and while folding I got a 6c or 7c drop in temperature and that was even under slower fan speeds! :thumb:
I've triple checked the folding results and it's correct every time. It just doesn't seem right :biggrin:
