    Counter balance that with the good fans you need for rads. My GPUs never hit 40C, but there are 17 good fans on my rads. I'm guessing it all balances out in the end. We do get arse raped for power in Ontario though!

    Very interesting Cyclops. I've never heard of this until now. I should try testing that with my 780 on air. I've got a electricity usage monitor too from when I was buying a UPS. I wish the UPS software was more reliable for those readings
