EVGA Precision. It's based off RivaTuner, IIRC. Very handy for OC'ing and setting fan speeds, I use it myself.

Ahh yes the Precision, thank you! Saw this thread earlier: NCIX FORUMS - GTX 480 Temps

The poster has a screen shot with what looks like customized precision tool for the GTX 480. And some temps for perusal :)

Precision is indeed based on RivaTuner, and is the work of Unwinder, who created RivaTuner.

from what he says he got it at 108c so better airflow should drop a healthy 5c off the card. still a 'tad' hot i think, lol. still waiting on several answers for folding temps. of course they will greatly vary due to different room temps, clock frequencies, cases, fans in them case..etc etc...

I'll hopefully be getting it sometime today. It's on the truck for delivery. I would've preferred NCIX to have shipped my order out UPS as I know the UPS delivery guy is great in my area. I have had no experience with Purolator in London and living in an apartment....I've got to stalk my lobby channel to watch him while studying.

And sure enough, I'll take pics, maybe a video unboxing (but I hate talking when no one's around...), and do some basic benchmarks (can't do many as I have two finals coming this Thursday/Friday).

Btw, I don't have an i7 or anything...just a simple Core 2 Quad. So my results aren't very useful...

Hey it's puro... he'll never get it

Just got a package by puro (ncix promo) and by the time I made it to the door the delivry guy was back in his truck and already leaving. once again the package was left in front of the door, near the street. At least I was at home and it wasn't covered by 2 inches of snow like the laptop I did receive few months ago.
