Default

I've figured out that locking the fans at 80% (there is no point graph for this card, just a manual "right now and forever" adjust) prevents the most noise and keeps the card nice and cool while folding.

Default settings have them cranking up to 100% by the time the card hits 60C, which probably didn't help the wear and tear. According to the internet, the GPU is spec'd for 95C. New GPU BIOS updates probably fixed this but too late now.

Anyway back to folding - with these 134XX WUs I'm only getting about 140k less PPD than my Vega 64 anyway. All other projects, 7970 gets 210k PPD. This one, 110k PPD. It also runs much cooler.
