    oh ok thanks wiggo, it was just surprising considering how much more of a sophisticated piece of equipment my gpu is using for cooling. Either way if you got the money, i reccomend this cooler.

    with the blower on its pretty loud, about as loud as my volcano 7+ at full speed. With it not on its not very loud at all. The main fan is pretty quiet even at full speed but can be adjusted to whatever speed is necessary.

    ...But then again, my computer would probably win in a loudest computer ever contest, ive got it OC'd so high i dont dare run the fans at anything but max. Thank god for headphones :laugh:

    That "blower" doesnt even move 4CFM, according to thermaltake. You should probably just take it off, 41.6dB for 4CFM is a horrbile trade; your case fans should be able to make up for that blower easily. : peace2: Mista K6

    what do you guys reccomend for checking max temps? I've been using the nVidia temperature monitor in the display properties but i figure it has time to cool down a bit if i exit a game and go to it. Is there anything that works during a game or maybe is like a heat benchmark?

    Only problem with the Overdrive feature is that the Overclock only remains effictive until the temperature threashhold is too high, then it goes back down to stock speeds.
