Any HD 6970 users out there?
Posted 31 Dec 2011 by David Steel
I have a stock XFX HD-6970, it only runs about 12 hours per day.
Times are from about 1500 secs to 2300 secs per work unit.
Happy with the card but its very loud.
GPU @ 99% + Fan speed at 65% = Temperature @ about 88 degrees C.
Fan speed at 100% is stupidly loud, sounds like a jet engine.
I have a GTX 590 running Seti and DistrRTgen, can't even hear it.
