That thing takes forever to spool up the fan from 20% to 100%.

Dual GPU video card means "Power-Hungry."

Remember to keep the fan speed run automatically. Don't touch anything else, unless it's for Advanced User to OC (Overclock).

These cards are fairly scarce at the moment, but hopefully when the supply catches up they'll come down a little in price. Just curious about the directx11 graphics Rodney, did you feel the difference between 10 and 11 was really that noticeable while gaming?

Wrong! It's 2GB Dual GPU video card.

Wrong!

He said 1GB per GPU. Hence what you tried to correct him 2GB Dual GPU.

The Blower style fan helps both vents to cool down the ROP (Rast Operator).

Depends if the video card is running too much heat which results the fan speed to go faster in order to dissipate the heat from the video card.
