My System Specs


I've been getting a regular mix of them on both my cards, and I've noticed something interesting. I can actually tell by the whine if the cards are working on an 8057 or not (more whine for this one), which I would correlate to a heavier work load, and correspondingly higher temperatures. However, the temperature difference between an 80xx WU (I've checked with both 8043's I believe and 8057's), and a 7xxx WU is a staggering 12C on my GTX570 (stock cooling PNY). I haven't paid close attention to my 460, it's probably at 6C or so, but the temps are low to begin with (55 - 60C at 900MHz).

It's a good thing that I set my clock speeds on the 570 when I was running a 7xxx WU, topping out at 77C, so when it switches to an 80xx unit, the temp drops to 65C.
