My System Specs


Some pretty decent looking coolers there, even if some of them didn't perform quite as well as I'd like to see.

It's great to see Sparkle trying to make inroads into Canada (Newegg's influence?), and it would be really interesting to see if the high(er) OC clocks you got with their card were just the luck of the draw, or if it can be replicated by end users as these things hit the market.

One of the things (I think I harp on this a lot, but it's important to me.... :) ) I'm curious about is the ability to set custom fan profiles with the manufacturer's software.... I know that the ASUS software allows for setting temp related fan speed profiles on ATI cards, does that functionality follow through with their Nvidia offerings? Do any of the other manufacturers' software have this ability?

Finally.... Wasn't it the EVGA software that allowed for bumping of GPU voltages? Does that work with the GTS250 cards?

Thanks SKYMTL, and as always, great review!!!!
