Default Re: Getting the most out of my PC

My 4890 idles at 59 and loads at 78 without manual fan enabled in CCC. I also have the HAF 932, but my ambient temps are in the high 70's Fahrenheit easy. I get no stuttering. When I am folding or playing any game I always manual set my gpu fan speed at least at 50%, sometimes higher. I just keep it below 70c, I am uncomfortable with gaming for long periods of time above 70c.

Just sharing my experience as I have the same exact GPU and case.

Trail is all you need.

The 15000 score you get is made up of 3 scores, 1 is cpu based, and the other 2 are gpu based.

example from my 3dmark:
3DMark Score 16412 3DMarks
SM 2.0 Score 6531
SM 3.0 Score 7324
CPU Score 5062

Woohoo = L5639 @3.1Ghz EVGA SR-2 gtx 260-216 Hyper 212+ Corsair 1050hx 6x2gb Corsair XMS3 Blackhawk Ulra
