That's more like I was hoping for - solutions to the heat problem then I can review them, get the specs (like fan speed, airflow, etc) then find other stuff "cheaper" and ask if they would perform about the same, just being a knock off company or something to make it cheaper.
a dual fan GPU fan might keep it cooler "barely turning" as you put it, which is good since the noise is the main concerns right now (and heat removal soon)
and yea the fans were plugged in from their little pin to the adapters that were built in to my power supply. I now have them in the motherboard because I was trying some other stuff and looking at RPMs. I guess I need a mod for it or something to actually increase the speeds.
I'll get more info later when I can, maybe even pictures to help and junk.
Now I plan to add another GPU - which would cut the space the fans have for intake - how much space is really recommended for fans like this? (between cards) ?
It's not the slot right under it - its another slot or maybe a third slot down.
I believe it's something like this, maybe a dif revision, but definately looks like the setup Blue is the first GPU - black would be the second. (be 2 slots in between them, being a double would cut this to 1 slot spacing between them)
I believe the last slot is also PCI x16 - but it would be directly on top of my Power supply... so I don't think that is such a great idea.
