I've posted here before with questions about my nVidia 9800 GX2 graphics card.....but I don't think I've asked this
As most of you probably already know, the GX2 is two GPU's sandwiched into one case. To the best of my knowledge, though, there's just one fan in-between the two GPU's.
I could write to the company and ask this, but, sometimes I get quicker responses here.
I want to find out in which direction
the fan inside blows. The graphics card has many vents on it; top, bottom, side, and the back. But the one I want to ask about is the top & bottom ones. First, take a look at this pic:
This picture is basically oriented in the position the card would be in when you push it into its PCI-e slot. At the top-left of the pic is where the screws would go.
But do you see where I put the red
"down" and blue
Does the fan that's in-between the two GPU's blow air downward toward the bottom of the case? Or, does it blow air upward toward the top of the case?
When I booted my computer up today (a cold boot from being off overnight), I took the side panel off my case and got a small piece of paper (Post-It size) and placed it on the top vents (where that blue
arrow is in the pic). I wanted to see if the piece of paper got "pushed" off from the fan blowing that way, or, if it was "sucked" down from the fan pulling that way.
But nothing really happened.....not pushed
. Perhaps it's because I had just started the computer and the GPU's hadn't built up any real heat yet. When idling, the fan blows at 45% speed according to EVGA precision.
So......does anybody know which way the wind blows......uhhh.....I mean which way the fan
Thanks for any info,
