You need to find the SWEET spot for your 285.

Mine is quiet with 650/1675/1350 fAN AT 65%

wth, i couldnt here it before over the vent under my desk (furnace). but my gso squeals alot too. I have to stop this somehow :(.

Probably my fan, the gso doesnt have a fan controle wire on it. so i just plugged the fan wires in my 5v molex lol

Welcome aboard by's! This can get expensive.

I started out last November by getting a cheap 9600GSO to fold with a few spare parts....when I sent my GTX 260 off to Evga last week, I was hitting 14k-15k ppd on all my rigs. Now I am waiting for the 285 to come back from Evga (Step-up, PPD was the entire reason, as my FPS is more than fine). Hoping to get to 17-18k PPD total when it comes.

Then I'll be oooh so close to 20k....

Lol 3.0....don't you still have some hardware that is not even being used yet for folding? I know you are pretty meticulous with your tweaking...either that or you wait until someone catches you and then you break out another weapon
