Oh noes! My Gainward Phantom GTX 570 is arrived but to hot and loud?!
I should be happy that my Phantom GTX 570 is arrived but I am not.
I did read differend test articles and was aware that this card should be very quit with a good cooling.
In most test articles and benchmark´s I did read about following temperatures:
Idle = 38 Degrees
Gaming = 64 Degrees
full throttle (for example furmark) = 75 Degrees
But now here comes my temperatures:
Idle = 56 Degrees
Gaming = 75 Degrees
full throttle (for example furmark) = 97 Degrees
I did measure it now two days from time to time and come to these temperatures maybe +/- 1 or 2 celsius.
So now I am afraid that there is something wrong with my new card. I mean its running but it is loud like hell when I play games. Annoying loud.
Ok looks like my case has already 50 degrees even with suck in air on the front panel with 120mm cooler. And blow it out behind. So I am now unsettled whats wrong here.
The noise makes me mad. The grafics are ok and the performance as well. But noise and temperature seems to be unusual compared to reports of friends, users in forums and test articles and benchmark´s.
Should I fill an RMA or are the 50 degrees in my case (which I also have with the gts 250) the error? I am not sure what to do now.
Damn. An RMA would cost some days or weeks time and then I could probably not play Battlefield 3 open beta. I bought this card for Battlefield 3.
Any tech-geeks here who can give me advice if everything is ok with my card or if I should fill an RMA and get a new one?
