Do you mean do they ever reach 100% while in normal gaming session or something like that? If that is what you mean, no not during a gaming session. FurMark made the 480 get pretty close, but other than that not many got close to 100.
General usage … Most are pretty quiet. I would say maybe 60% fan speed on average during a long game session. That is on the higher end GPUs. The middle of the range I dont even think would get that high.
Great review Duke
Question about the Fan speeds. You list decibels for each, but do any of the cards ever reach 100%? How does the noise rate on general usage?
Great review, I want a 580 now lol.

[...] We were able to overclock our card from 782MHz on the GF110 core by 18%, up to 926MHz. We were able to hit this impressive number thanks to the ASUS Voltage Tweak. The only negative to this rather massive overclock was the increased power consumption and GPU temperatures. We saw a 43% power consumption increase in 3DMark Vantage, so if you overclock be sure to understand that you are throwing any energy efficiency out the window.

I’m guessing he’s being sarcastic and doesn’t know you can view the graphs in larger size by clicking on them.
Why do you say that?
