That's quite a claim.
Yes it is, if someone can send me any GTX970 or 980 and his config with PSU/mobo that has 0 coil whine above 300/400FPS I will pay 4x the card :-)

Re: New PSU time!

EVGA partner with Superflower is netting some of the best PSU in the market. For the US was harder to get holds on Superflower PSUs, specially their Leadex Platinium, but all this changing with the EVGA P2, and the 650/750/850 are almost as small as seasonics 160mm, just 5mm more. Their 1200W is th...

Re: Choosing between a Geforce GTX 970 and 980

The coil whine is an odd one. On the one hand I've seen a thread where a setup with 2x Strix 970s resulted in one perfectly quiet card and one with modest coil whine. On the other hand, I've also read a post where someone has gone through 4 different cards from 3 manufacturers (EVGA/MSI/Gigabyte) i...

Re: New PSU

I will probably never get to a load/temp where my EVGA 1000 P2 turns its fan on and even than its gonna start really low RPM (around 500w I found on https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/EVGA/SuperNOVA_P2_1000/6.html ), and if I may believe that curve it starts almost on 300/400 RPM.

Re: Asus GTX970 STRIX

As pointed out also in the topic from bbalex his 980 cards did not have problems but the 970's had.. so we will see. I am ok with the little more powerdraw...

Ok I orderd and got them, I will do some tests ton8 with both the noctua's again and the Antec.

I have a noctua u12s and I5 4690, any advice on what temps I should be aiming for while I try to tune down my fans? For now it gets to like 60° and stays there steady with fans around 500/600RPM on load.
